NBA News and Notes for April 30

Wow, a lot of big news in the NBA today!

The biggest is that both Mike D’Antoni and Avery Johnson are going to be on the coaching market. This makes Donnie Walsh look pretty good for not making a coaching decision already, as it’s not every year that two former Coaches of the Year fall into your lap. Of the two, I think Johnson probably fits in better with the Knicks, but I think D’Antoni is the better coach of the two. Also note that D’Antoni is the only one of the two who is leaving his team on his own volition, Avery is being fired – D’Antoni is gone because he doesn’t want to have to answer to Steve Kerr anymore.

As someone else mentioned, Steve Nash better be hurt, because he looked terrible against the Spurs last night, including a number of turnovers toward the end of the game. I felt bad for Nash on one of them, which was a tough luck turnover (he had the ball knocked out of his hands, but Nash clearly touched it last), but the others were just awful.

Is there anything Phoenix can do differently next year? #15 in the draft is unlikely to be much of a help to them, to the point that I would consider trading it. Kerr is concerned about Nash not having a backup, which is fair enough, I suppose, but I do not know if that really was that big of a deal for the Suns.

Dallas, on the other hand, looks like they need a shake-up. I don’t like the idea of pinning this on Dirk, though, so I would still try to build around him. Dirk won’t turn 30 until June, so he still has a number of good years in him, so I wouldn’t try to move him for a few years, but if they get a great offer, then perhaps.

As to flopping – the reason I think there should be a flopping foul is because there isn’t enough of a penalty for a player flopping. You might say that the defender’s man would have an open lane to the basket, but surely the defender takes that into consideration, and weighs that into the likelihood of whether the ref will call the foul or not and goes for it. If the defender also had to figure in the chances of the ref calling him for a foul, then I think we would see a change in the way players flop. Like I mentioned, the NHL had the same exact problem, and they created a penalty for it. It’s unsportsmanlike behavior, and I think it should be addressed. What reason is there for the NBA to allow flopping?

    Soccer, where flopping was pretty much invented, has a flopping rule.

    The problem with it is that it’s a yellow card, which is a pretty severe penalty, so referees are reluctant to call it.

    Fans, on the other hand, absolutely love when an opposing player gets hit with one.

  2. Brian Cronin

    Right, and in hockey, they also seem to be wary about calling it, because it leads to a power play.

    In the NBA, it would just be a foul, so I think refs would call it more, and players would do it less.

  3. Brian Cronin

    Lebron misses possible game-winning layup at the buzzer.

    Game Six in Washington is going to be scaaaary.

  4. Thomas B.

    BC,

    I am in DC and I just watched the game. Caron Butler is something else. People often talk about the Lakers stealing Gasol but i think Gasol just balances out what the Lakers lost when they moved Butler for Kwame Brown. How much would you love Butler in NYC? Game 6 in DC will indeed be scaaaary.

    Agreed that Walsh was wise to wait for a coach. I like Jackson, but if you can get Avery Johnson, D’Antonio, or Tibedeau, you have to interview all of those guys. Johnson is a good coach that made some big mistakes but he can learn from them. He will surely bring the required defensive adjustments that the Knicks need. Can you imagine what Johnson would say/do to Randolph after he jacks up a three with 20 left on the shot clock? He will live on Marbury’s back and he would force Crawford to do 20 push up every tme he settled for a jumper when he should have driven to the hole. That, combined with a top two pick, would really start to turn things around for the Knicks.

    Chandler had what looked like a tough knee injury his last game, any word on his status?

  5. Brian Cronin

    Chandler had what looked like a tough knee injury his last game, any word on his status?

    From RotoWorld on April 15th –

    An MRI confirmed that Wilson Chandler’s left knee is sprained and that there are no ligament tears.

    This is great news for Chandler, as it was believed that he may have suffered a torn ACL. He’ll be on crutches for a couple weeks before starting rehab and should be fully healthy going into next season.

  6. W.C.

    I realize that a lot of experienced coaches are now available, but I’d almost rather take an unknown than someone that failed multiple times with a team that could have or should have won a championship.

    A guy like Tibedeau is an unknown as a head coach, but he’s a proven defensive talent and supposed super hard worker. If you take a shot with a guy like that, you could easily wind up with a “GREAT” coach instead of one of many recycled good coachs.

    I don’t know enough about Jackson to know if he’s too much of a risk relative to some of these other guys (perhaps no one knows), but I think we are going to have to trust Walsh on this.

    I guess my point is that even though there is some potential downside to a choice like Jackson, there is more potential upside (though IMHO Tibedeau is practically a no brainer).

  7. Mulligan

    If D’Antoni’s career highlights anything it’s that all of this is situational. The Shaq trade made it really hard for his vision to flourish. As much as I’d love to have NY be the next Phoenix, I think it’s pretty clear that the situations are quite different and D’Antoni is not the guy to emphasize our strengths. This team needs discipline and someone willing to teach. Johnson might do that, although he might be too controlling. I’ve heard that Thibodeau is an excellent teacher, so that could be good, too. I dunno..

  8. mase

    the next coach is a biggest decision Walsh will have amongst his many difficult ones (the draft is ultimately a crap shoot) and i hope he chooses should he become available (drum roll please) sam mitchell! he would be the perfect compliment to a group our defensively challenged, shoot first prima donnas. anyone else agree?

  9. MJG

    “Too controlling” might be just what the doctor ordered for the Knicks, given the team…

    The thing I don’t like about the flopping foul is that it introduces one more thing for the refs to call and it is wildly subjective. The first time a game is decided in the final seconds because a ref thinks a player flopped would have everybody up in arms. The best way to handle flopping is to call nothing at all, which the refs frequently have done. It helps the game remain fluid, instead of having the ugly stop/start quality of a highly officiated game.

  10. Z

    “D’Antoni is gone because he doesn’t want to have to answer to Steve Kerr anymore.”

    Is this true or conjecture? From what I’ve read D’Antoni talked Kerr into the Shaq deal. He doesn’t seem that hard to work with.

The best way to handle flopping is to call nothing at all, which the refs frequently have done. It helps the game remain fluid, instead of having the ugly stop/start quality of a highly officiated game.

    Well, the goal is if the refs start calling it, players wouldn’t try it as much, especially if you add in the “every fifth flopping foul you get a fine/every sixth flopping foul you get suspended a game” part of the rule (which is basically how the NHL handles their diving penalty).

    In a big game between Golden State and LA this year, the game turned on Derek Fisher flopping and drawing an offensive foul at the end of the game.

    If he knew that he could possibly be called for a foul for it, giving Golden State two free throws, I really doubt he’d have tried it – he would just play his man straight up.

  12. Brian Cronin

    Is this true or conjecture? From what I’ve read D’Antoni talked Kerr into the Shaq deal. He doesn’t seem that hard to work with.

    I think it is less that he doesn’t like Kerr so much as he just doesn’t want to answer to him.

    Reports are that Kerr wanted D’Antoni to answer some questions about the season and what D’Antoni plans on doing next year, like certain things Kerr wants him to specifically address.

    So if you’re D’Antoni, and you ran the franchise for a season, and now you have to explain yourself to Kerr?

    I think it’s fair to say that he would prefer not to.

    Kerr could be perfectly reasonable in wanting these things addressed, but D’Antoni doesn’t want to have to deal with it if he doesn’t have to, and as he’s certainly an in-demand coach, he really doesn’t have to.

  13. Latke

    please don’t hire avery johnson. He has done zilch that has been impressive in the playoffs. His team suffers from major confidence and choking issues – and if a coach can contribute in any one area besides Xs and Os, it is in this area. I’d really take anyone available on the market now over Johnson.

  14. Brian Cronin

    If the Knicks hired Johnson, it would be funny to think about the fact that Johnson made the shot that essentially eliminated the Knicks in the 1999 NBA Finals.

    Has any other player turned coach ever ended up in a situation like that before? I’m sure they have, I just can’t think of one offhand.

    I mean, Magic never tried to become the coach of the Celtics, ya know?

    I know Zeke scored 16 points in 90 seconds against the Knicks, but the Knicks won that game. ;)

  15. Mel

    I hate to say it but I’ve always thought they allowed flopping in the NBA even though even in euroleague they have taken action against it , is they want to encourage foreign caucasian players to join the league , there has been talk about a flopping call for years but to my knowledge there has never been any significant action by the league to even consider it.

  16. Frank

    “Why exactly is flopping such an issue? Why all the noise all of a sudden?”

    Have you ever seen Manu Ginobili play? Even Kurt Thomas, former tough guy, was flopping left and right during the series.

  17. jon abbey

    yeah, it’s out of control in recent years, Nocioni is another frequent offender, Derek Fisher too. that game-ending call Brian refers to above may very well have cost Golden State their season (the game he means was actually GS/LA, unless there was another one I’m not aware of).

  18. Brian Cronin

    No, you’re right, Jon. I knew it was a team in the playoff hunt, I just thought it was in that game where the jerky Utah fans were booing him, but no, it was definitely in the Golden State game (although it would not be shocking if Fisher had flopped his way at the end of two games).

  19. Z

    “If the Knicks hired Johnson, it would be funny to think about the fact that Johnson made the shot that essentially eliminated the Knicks in the 1999 NBA Finals. Has any other player turned coach ever ended up in a situation like that before?”

    Kenny Smith banked in a three that effectively eliminated the 1994 Knicks in game 7 of the finals. He’s a GM candidate…

  20. dave crockett

    I am philosophically opposed to anti-flopping legislation for two reasons. (I’m presuming here that “flopping” refers exclusively to defenders who feign contact for the express purpose of drawing a foul.)

    1. I’m not convinced defenders flop any more than offensive players fake contact (or create it) to draw fouls. Steve Francis is a master at flailing his arms on minimal or no contact to get to the FT line. (Crawford isn’t as good at it, but he almost invariably yells, “heeeeyyyy!!!” on the rare occasions he drives.) Tim Duncan might be among the craftiest ever at stepping into a defender’s chest and thrusting his arm underneath to draw a foul. A good official won’t bail out the offensive player, but fundamentally this is the same as flopping and should be dealt with identically — no call.

    2. The weapon officials need to stop obvious, non-contact flopping is already in their hands: a delay of game — one time warning, next time team technical (but not personal) foul.

  21. mase

    “Kenny Smith banked in a three that effectively eliminated the 1994 Knicks in game 7 of the finals. He’s a GM candidate…”

    its a good idea to have him as a GM because he’s young and could work along with a young coach.

  22. PeteRoc

    On Steve Nash and the Suns….I said on this blog before the playoffs began that the loser of the Suns/Spurs series would start their decline as a Western Conference power. I just didn’t realize that Duncan was still the best (or second best) player in the league (sorry Lebron, but I exclude people who haven’t won titles from consideration). Phoenix can’t do anything about it. Shaq and Nash have two more years on their deal, so forget about any deals next season unless it involves Stoudemire, and other GMs know it. They’ll be good enough to make the playoffs in the West, good enough to avoid a good draft pick, and still not have cap flexibility next summer to get someone really good….translation, 1st round exit next year.

    On Dallas and their next move…Dallas won’t ever win a title as long as Dirk is their best player. If he’s the 2nd best player (ala Gasol), then we can talk. He’s a great shooter, but can’t dominate a game in the post…meaning he can’t position himself for 5-10 footers (or draw fouls) in the last 2 minutes of a game the way Duncan (or even ‘Sheed on nights when he’s actually into the game) can. As a result, you never see Dirk have 4th qtr stretches like Joe Johnson the other night or Duncan in game 1 unless he’s feeding off of another player’s penetration…translation, no shot at actually winning a title unless you have someone who can do those things at 1/2 times in a series.

    On flopping…I understand the fustration with “floppers,” but its actually necessary from a defenders point of vew absent progressive changes on how the league officiates. If offensive player “A” penetrates, and a defender offers resistance or beats him to the spot, and the defender has the nerve to stay on his feet, then a foul (if called) is 10 times more likely to go against the defender…translation, defenders are almost forced to “sell” good defense otherwise they risk getting called for a foul.

  23. PeteRoc

    One other note about Dirk…he’s not a good defender, so he can easily be exploited by too many teams and thus Dallas has to protect him on defense. Nash is the same way against teams with point guards who can score. I love offense as much as the next person, but you have to be able to get stops at least occasionally. If you’re best player hurts you in that respect, you can forget about titles and limit team goals to the regular season.

  24. Asaf

    On flopping. I didnt see the GS/LAL game but it doesnt seem like legislation was needed to fix the situation. If the defender flops and the ref calls an offensive foul, the problem is with the ref. All that needs to happen is for the ref not to bit on a flop. If the ref can’t distinguish between a flop and a genuine offensive foul, then having a more severe penalty for flopping is not likely to help much.

  25. dave crockett

    As for Avery…

    I think he just ran his course in D. That hands-on, grating, disciplinarian style tends to have a really short shelf life if you don’t win. You look back at that Finals and think how close they came. If memory serves, Dallas never lost by more than 4 points in that series. (I love D-Wade, and the aggressive player gets the whistle, but you couldn’t use harsh language within earshot lest he go to the line.) It’s hard to outlast tragedy in any relationship. And Dallas, which may be looking at blowing up that core, quite rightfully, can’t wait for Johnson to get better (if he ever does).

    He should obviously be on NY’s radar. His about-.500 record in the playoffs is hardly a disqualifier for this rebuilding club. My big question about Johnson is how good is he at player development. Given his broad skill set and quick start as a rookie, I look at Josh Howard and find myself mildly disappointed in the player he’s become. I didn’t expect superstardom but expected him to develop into a bit better player. This may not have anything to do with Avery Johnson.

  26. DS

    Kenny Smith as a GM candidate?? The only upside to having him a GM is not having to listen to his color commentary on TV… I seriously doubt that one.

  27. NIck

    “(I love D-Wade, and the aggressive player gets the whistle, but you couldn’t use harsh language within earshot lest he go to the line.)” To me that is a bigger deal than “flopping.”

  28. Owen

    Why broadcast analysts are the preferred coaching candidates for the Knicks by the world at large is a total mystery to me. If it has to Kenny Smith or Mark Jackson, I guess I prefer the former, but common sense would suggest that there are probably a lot better options.

    Listening to Mark Jackson is unbelievably painful for me as astathead. He is scoring obsessed in the extreme, he just loves guys who can generate a lot of offense at or below league average ts%. The contrast between him and Van Gundy is huge I think.

    Kenny Smith is a bit more savvy talking in the studio.

    Frankly, if I had to choose between the two of them I would go with Smith on the basis of his 57% ts% over Jackson’s 52%. Ludicrous I know…

    I don’t know what the Knicks options are. Clearly, they want someone from New York, someone who is media savvy, and someone who they think can communicate with players. I understand that I guess. but to me Tom Thibodeau would seem to represent a step in the right direction. Someone who could address the glaring weakness of this team. How much it matters I don’t know, I really don’t think any coach could do all that much for this team as presently constructed,

  29. NIck

    “How much it matters I don’t know, I really don’t think any coach could do all that much for this team as presently constructed”

    That’s my biggest worry even with the higher profile coaches becomign available. Look at what happened with Larry Brown and even Wilkens though you could argue his time had come and gone.

  30. Ted Nelson

    “What reason is there for the NBA to allow flopping?”

    If the ref actually calls the foul on the flop then with the anti-flopping rule in place he’d still buy the act and call a personal foul, not a flopping foul.

    On a play where the ref doesn’t buy the flop and call a foul the “flopper” is only hurting himself and his team.

    I don’t really see a need for a flopping foul, and even if there is one they’ll hardly ever call it.

    “1. I’m not convinced defenders flop any more than offensive players fake contact (or create it) to draw fouls. Steve Francis is a master at flailing his arms on minimal or no contact to get to the FT line. (Crawford isn’t as good at it, but he almost invariably yells, “heeeeyyyy!!!” on the rare occasions he drives.) Tim Duncan might be among the craftiest ever at stepping into a defender’s chest and thrusting his arm underneath to draw a foul. A good official won’t bail out the offensive player, but fundamentally this is the same as flopping and should be dealt with identically — no call.”

    Good point. Paul Pierce is a master at getting foul calls, drives me nuts.

    “On flopping…I understand the fustration with “floppers,” but its actually necessary from a defenders point of vew absent progressive changes on how the league officiates. If offensive player “A” penetrates, and a defender offers resistance or beats him to the spot, and the defender has the nerve to stay on his feet, then a foul (if called) is 10 times more likely to go against the defender…translation, defenders are almost forced to “sell” good defense otherwise they risk getting called for a foul.”

    Also a good point.

    “I realize that a lot of experienced coaches are now available, but I’d almost rather take an unknown than someone that failed multiple times with a team that could have or should have won a championship.”

    Getting to the playoffs would be a huge step for the Knicks, I’m not too worries about how they do when they get there now. Once they’re in the playoffs they can worry about winning in the playoffs.

    I think Avery Johnson would be a good choice and also like Thibodeaux and Jackson. It’s obviously an important decision, but it might be more important to have a strong coach once they have a decent core in place. As long as this offseason’s hire does a competent job he can just be a placeholder (not the best case scenario, but…).

    “My big question about Johnson is how good is he at player development.”

    Fair enough point about Howard (although this is a guy who went on the radio and talked about smoking up), but the Johnson has had several young players play productively in his rotation: Harris, Diop, Bass, and Howard come to mind. It’s not like he’s D’Antoni who openly refuses to develop young players.

  31. jon abbey

    “On Dallas and their next move…Dallas won’t ever win a title as long as Dirk is their best player.”

    um, they would have won two years ago if the refs hadn’t fucked them in the Finals. things have changed since then, but I don’t think you can put so much of the blame on Dirk.

  32. PeteRoc

    jon abbey…I think you can put the blame for the finals on him. I agree the officiating was bad, but how can a team with a great player lose 4 straight games against the most mediocore finals winner since…since…since…hell, maybe of all time. The truth in retrospect is that Dwayne Wade was the only player playing at a superstar level during the series, and Dallas’ inability to stop the bleeding against that Heat team is proof Dirk doesn’t deserve to be considered among the truly great teams.

    In Dirk’s defense, I really was impressed with how he played down the stretch of the season, but getting screwed in the finals is no excuse for getting bounced in the first round the very next year.

  33. MJG

    PeteRoc, completely agree with your assessments of Phoenix and Dallas…

    Brian, you make a good point about bringing up the GS/LA game, I was sickened by that ending (didn’t care who won, but it was one of the biggest games of the season and deserved a good ending). However, the mistake was not in the rules, the mistake was that the official called anything in the first place. Something similar happened in the Phoenix/Spurs series, where Manu and somebody else got knocked down before the ball was entered, but they got back up and play resumed. No big deal.

    Paul Pierce is a master at drawing fouls and that’s just part of his game. Most great scorers become adept at it. I used to bitch about Jordan all the time, but it’s just basketball…I don’t think more rules are the answer.

  34. Matthew

    I don’t like flopping any more than the next guy, but I think I hate giving refs more subjective power even less. And if we are really going to do a flopping foul, it has to apply to offensive players too. Wade jumping into his opponent an falling down on a jumpshot is just as much of a flop as Varejao falling down when a player gets near him.

    I think the spirit of a flopping foul is “don’t use rules for gain”, and that’s something I believe in. I think penalties should be just that; penalties. Not something teams use for strategic purposes. That’s why i’m also against Hack-A-Shaq (I think intentionally fouling a player off-the-ball should be 1 foul shot and the ball), and the winning team fouling with less than a minute in the game.

  35. dave crockett

    “Why broadcast analysts are the preferred coaching candidates for the Knicks by the world at large is a total mystery to me. If it has to Kenny Smith or Mark Jackson, I guess I prefer the former, but common sense would suggest that there are probably a lot better options.”

    What I find most interesting with that is how often the broadcaster is playing a role. The Jackson/Van Gundy dynamic is staged to be like the Bill Walton/Steve “Snapper” Jones dynamic. So, I don’t know how diagnostic Jackson’s broadcasts are about his coaching. It’s just schtick. (Some of the stuff Van Gundy says on TV makes me laugh because he never coached like that.)

    When I moved out West where Bill Walton would do college hoops games occasionally on Fox Sports Net. He’s a very different broadcaster in college. I was totally flustered when he said intelligent things during a broadcast. It was very dissonance-inducing.

  36. daniel

    why doesn’t anyone ever talk about Greg Anthony as a GM? He seems to have been demoted from ESPN, but he’s always struck me as really smart and perceptive about the NBA. Just saying if Kenny Smith is a candidate, Greg Anthony always seemed to me more serious about the whole thing.

  37. caleb

    Coaching surprise: I just read on ESPN that Walsh interviewed Rick Carlisle on Wednesday…

    p.s. Last year, at mid-season, Greg Anthony wrote that Jamal Crawford was the most valuable player in the Atlantic Division.

  38. villainx

    caleb, it was last year’s Atlantic Division after all.

    Ever coach is getting canned, but the Nets aren’t firing Frank?

  39. jon abbey

    “caleb, it was last year’s Atlantic Division after all.”

    Chris Bosh.

    Greg Anthony has a high IQ and says really really stupid things a lot, plus he’s a Republican. I don’t want him anywhere near the team.

  40. jon abbey

    “Every coach is getting canned, but the Nets aren’t firing Frank?”

    heh, in retrospect it looks like he was overachieving with a washed-up Kidd… :)

  41. Z

    “he’s a Republican”

    Wow. All those years rooting for him and I had no idea…

    But Isiah is a loyal democratic supporter. And Dolan too. And Steve Mills. And Stephon Marbury…

    So I wouldn’t base a hiring decision on it.

    (For the record, D’Antoni and Carlisle are both John Edwards supporters… I guess that’s the equivalent of making the playoffs but getting swept in the first round)

  42. z-man

    I really like Avery Johnson. He is a good combo of rah-rah and in-your-face, maybe he could shake up and motivate some guys without being poisonous. It will help that these aren’t his guys and that he isn’t smug like Zeke. As to his X’s and O’s, I am more cocerned with getting to the playoffs right now than going deep. He can always be replaced if necc in the future. Larry Bird said when he left coaching that “after about 4 years, players tune out the coach anyway.” I think Avery’s experience and record (playoffs aside) give him a big edge over Jackson and Thibodeau, and none of the more experienced candidates have done any better. Besides, Avery’s press conferences are entertaining.

  43. jon abbey

    I like Avery Johnson too, but I don’t see a realistic scenario where NY can make the playoffs next year, no matter who the coach is.

  44. Greg A.

    I’ve always said I’m a Republican only because it’s the lesser of two evils. But it is true that as time passes, it is harder to believe a thing from the mouth of any Dem (Zell Miller excepted) while I believe MOST of what I hear from Republcans.

    Dems are huge liars, endemically. Yet they spend all their time trying to convince the apolitical public otherwise.

    Truth/Character counts.

  45. Z

    “I like Avery Johnson too, but I don’t see a realistic scenario where NY can make the playoffs next year, no matter who the coach is.”

    I agree. The Knicks have so many pieces out of place that they only reason and established coach used to winning would take the job is to get a lot of money. Unlike with players, I don’t think money is the primary target of coaches looking for their next gig.

    The Knicks will probably have to settle for coaches with little experience, or established mediocrities. That’s why Jackson’s the frontrunner. I’m not sure how a proven assistant (Thibodeau) fits into the equation though (ie, if he was offered the job, would he take it?).

  46. Z-man

    Avery might figure out how to make Zach and/or Eddy to look good i.e. tradeable, maybe can get Steph to make Zach and Eddy look good. To me. it’s not about the playoffs, its more about maximizing the value of what we have in the trade market. Avery already knows what he can say and can’t say, what he can do and can’t do, in trying to accomplish that. Jackson and Thibodeau would have to make lots of rookie mistakes in the locker room and on the court, which we can’t afford right now.

  47. W.C.

    >Dems are huge liars, endemically. Yet they spend all their time trying to convince the apolitical public otherwise.<

    I want to apologize, but this will be my only political post.

    Some of the democrats are liars, but most of them are just plain stupid. They live in a non-existent idealistic version of the world. It’s hard wired into some peoples’ brains to think in terms of the way they would like the world to be instead of the way it works. As a result, they constantly make policy decisions that are a disaster over the long haul even if they satisify the other ignorants in the short term.

    The republicans on the other hand do understand how the world works, but they allow greed to interfere with their decision making and constantly lie.

  48. Z-man

    Geez, guys, why are you wasting good blog space on unimportant stuff like politics when we have a pivotal moment in Knick history upon us?! Keep your eye on the ball!!!!!

  49. jon abbey

    I apologize for starting the political silliness, although the posts have been pretty amusing at least.

    Washington going down without a fight tonight.

    Are the Knicks looking for a GM?
