Let’s see, what’s hot this morning.
Many are attributing the new found winning ways to the absence of Nate in the rotation which to this blogger is a bit ridiculous notion if a coach knew how to maximize his strengths. However, has anyone thought that benching Nate (and having Gallo appropriately come off the bench in favor of starting Harrington) finally showed the team that D’Antoni was committed to winning now and was ready to show it with discipline. Now players know that those who are in line to play the way D’Antoni wants them to will play and others will sit. Additionally, sitting Gallo (after he contracted “jump-shooters elbow”) showed that D’Antoni was willing to be more fair about his favoritism. Opps, that sounds like an article and not just a link lead. Sorry. Nate rumors are on the trading block; I’m not sure that Nate is however.
