In a recent fanpost Curre suggested that if the players and mgmt were not going to back him D'Antoni should just walk away since he would get payed anyway. I pointed out in a comment that even in the crazy world of Dolan you cannot quit and still get paid. That got me thinking that maybe D'Antoni is intentionally screwing up so that he will get fired and thus get his money.
Why else would he keep playing these lineups? If Melo is injured and cannot shoot then why is he playing? Why does our best 3 point shooter never get into the game? Why does Lin get no burn after averaging a triple double in D league? Why does the team play that stupid switching defense that forces our best interior defender out to the 3 point line? How can he keep putting Toney Douglas in games when it is clear that TD has forgotten how to play basketball? Why does Landry Fields only take 5 shots a game?
