    I think this would be a good hire, depending on assistants. Still would prefer JVG or Messina tho.

    Just don't know if D'Antoni can gain the respect of Harden and get him to engage defensively on a consistent basis.

    1. Mike D'Antoni
    2.
    3.

    He said there are 2 other "finalists" — I'd think something would have to go terribly wrong for this to collapse with MDA but who do you think the other two are?

    I don't think JVG is one. Les is petty.

    Mike: James I want you to be better defensively
    James: how?
    Mike: I want you to average 35 ppg so it won't matter how many points you give up
    James: cool

    Such garbage. I know he isn't hired yet, but is the ownership and FO that dumb? Do they know see that defense wins championships?

    D'Antoni has a ton of connections and the same argument that people here use to excuse JVG and his GARBAGE offense should be used on Pringles too.


    What if Pringles learned more while out of coaching?

    What makes D'Antoni (WHO GOT HIS TEAMS OUT OF THE FIRST ROUND) different from JVG?

    What makes JVG a better coach than Mike?

    Give me answers

    D'Antoni will be another McHale, which is something Les don't see in him
