Anybody else under the impression that when Woody and D'Antoni were both there that there may have been Woody's guys and D'Antoni's guys? And now that D'Antoni is gone his guys are getting payback i.e. Stat?
After reading that Woodson is thinking of putting Copeland ahead of Stat in the starting line up because he is worried about "defense". I started to wonder why doesn't Woodson like Stat? Seemed kind of strange. Then I started wondering if maybe there was some politics where some guys wanted D'Antoni gone and some didn't. And it seemed kind of natural that Stat would be in the latter category. And that maybe Woodson didn't appreciate that and felt that Stat was trying to block him for getting the job he wanted.
I dont view Amare as a "D'antoni" guy, but I'm sure as the main coach he's had he has some feeling for him.
But ultimately i think amare wants to win, and has embraced everything he was told to do by Woodson.
If Woodson really doesn't like him, then that's really woodsons problem, amare did everything he asked him to.
