MIKE D'ANTONI ON COACHING

A nice piece on by Eric Neel on Mike D'Anotni. This is a great read but also has an Outside The Lines video of a long insightful interview with Coach D'Antoni

"We cast our coaches as geniuses, and he could go that route -- he has written two books, he speaks two languages and he sees combinations in a five-man running game the way Duke Ellington heard the daring possibilities in his band -- but more often than not he demystifies, sees you as someone who loves the game and casts himself in the same simple role."
