Besides for what i get, Raptors fans are defense first fans, and for sure D'antoni is not a defense first coach. I'm sure Mike (D'antoni) has a great Bball knowledge and experience just don't think is the right coach here.
On a side note I like D'antoni , but what i find strange is the fact that when he was a player in europe he was a great defensive player and a great team_first pg, and at the beginning of his career as a coach in europe he was a defensive minded coach, then going to the NBA he got rid of his preavious stance.
