D'Antoni coaches a top heavy roster that was riddled with injuries and made adjustments but somehow got to the playoffs in the west = Hasn't done squat and a bum
Thibs coaches a decent roster riddled with injuries into the playoffs in the east = one of the best coaches in the league
Lakers fans are DEFENDING D'Antoni? Is the world going to end?
Like I said earlier, guys like Brewer, Lucas, etc. all played better under Thibs. He knows how to get the most out of his team. Where's Ronnie Brewer now? JLIII? Omer Asik? They were better under Thibs because he utilizes his players' strengths...a part of the reason why Noah is beasting this year is because Thibs realizes he has that playmaking ability and that's why he's one of the primary ball handlers on the team at the moment. We've been deprived of offensive talent the past few years and still winning. Near the bottom of the league in offense and we're 3rd in the East without Derrick and Luol. Granted the East is terrible, but is that not impressive?
