I don't like MDA one bit but he's just the Conductor.... and he's playing with a Jazz quartette rather than an entire orchestra.
Never said FO isn't to blame. Never liked that we didn't use the injured players exception. That was a head scratcher....unless Antoni said he wouldn't use that player anyways, which isn't beyond the realm of reality.
Ultimately, it's the coach's job to manage players' minutes, of which Antoni failed to do miserably. Don't forget, Nash is also out.
It's not coincidence that our oldest players are injured this late in the season. And its not like we haven't complained about the PT of our olderst players all year long.
