It is like Horford the last year, a terrible decision
If he is a "system coach" why was his system radically different in Phoenix vs. Houston?
The pace is different (compared to their era) , but both systems revolve around the mvp caliber ball handler, running pnrs, having the bigs as screen setters and rim runners, dislike of post touches etc. There are differences based on the different rosters but the principles are not different. Every time he couldnt run a similar offense due to his stars having a different playstyle he disappointed.
I dont really see Simmons as a D Antoni guy either in terms of ball handling. Hawks and Suns would be the best teams for him. They have the players he likes (especially the Hawks) and they are still in the lottery so they have room for improvement which will make him look good.
