It is great to see Antoni (no d), ruining the Lakers by trying to get them to play a running, 9 second game with spacing that makes their big and old men superfluous and liabilities. It's like the player who tries to catch one tick in the market now, against the high frequency people. The vig is about 80% and the adverse selection is another 15%. Antoni should work for the exchange or the track.

The amazing thing was to see his smug grimace of resignation as he was being buried for the Knicks with his aloof "what can you do" expression now transferred to the Lakers where he turned down a thanksgiving dinner with Howard and the boys so that he could perfect his run and gun 9 second free flowing offense. How wonderful to see him ruining the happiness of the west coast rather than the east when we had to watch his sardonicism.

You should definitely enjoy watching the "Antoni and Anilo" reunion tomorrow night at 830 PM. $9.3 million salary for the "Rooster" in the Mile High City. "Gallinari is the only Nuggets' starter shooting less than 40% from the field for the season, the Denver Post reports. (about 14 hours ago)"

"Gallinari is hitting just 37.2% from the field, including a dismal 23.4% from beyond the arc, thus far in the 2012-13 season. Those numbers are well off his career averages but the 6'10" small forward is confident that he'll regain his touch, sooner rather than later. For the year Gallinari is still averaging 15.1 ppg, 6.0 rpg, 2.4 apg, 0.7 bpg, and 0.5 spg, while only turning the ball over an average of 1.4 times a game."

    I’m sure this guy would benefit with the all seeing eye on his side. I wonder what he is thinking?

    So they are clawing back the increased efficiencies of the past 20 years. Would certainly seem to kill short term trading in french stocks - But I wonder if somehow the market will adjust (become less efficient) making room for continued profit.

    Addressing Mr. D’Antoni’s comments above, I would imagine that the writer to whom he was referring had in mind that tenacious defense is the sure gateway to opportune offense. Over the long-run, works like a charm. Across all sports and endeavors, actually. It’s just that the proper implementation of such is rarely flashy, demure by standards. But then the zeitgeist of-the-moment celebrates the flash junkies, all wrapped in the throes of their self-indulgent excesses.

    one would not belive that the real Mr. Antoni was a fan of Patarick O Brian , whose readers are only down to earth, everyday sort of people without pretense. If he is , wherein the ” all seeing eye” is commonly used, I agree to give him a pass for the rest of his tenure. vic
