D'Antoni's body language

This is my first fan post, and I'll try to keep it brief and leave it open for interpretation in the comments, but am I the only one who finds D'Antoni's body language and facial expressions really troubling? I've always been a "supporter" of his, in so many words, but more so of his schematic philosophies than of him personally (impossible to get a real read on the latter, and if you're cool with Nash you're cool with me). Anyways, most good coaches seem to, at least publicly, act immune from the struggles, either continuing to offer encouragement or acting acceptant, ready to tell the team what needs to be told, and live for another day. If they need to lash out at their players, they do it, outwardly and positively - but D'Antoni is visibly inwardly frustrated and angry, but to a point where his face gets pale (or is that my Internet feed?) and it looks unhealthy. It gives off this horrible defeatist vibe that can't help the team and, combined with Breen's famous "And all of a sudden" commentary that at this point comes across as fatalistic, may go a long way in explaining why so many Knicks fans are panicking with 74 games left in the season.
