Knicks D'Antoni rips Nate a new one

Quote:
D'Antoni: Nate's Emotions Limited Him To 1-Year Contract

Mike D'Antoni said that Nate Robinson's inability to control his emotions was a factor in the Knicks' decision not to sign Robinson to a multi-year contract.

Robinson received a one-year contract just before training camp opened.

"That's why [he is] on a one-year contract," D'Antoni said of the exuberance that often gets the better of Robinson on the court. "That's why we won 32 games."

D'Antoni believes the Knicks would have greater success when Robinson can change his approach to the game.

"As soon as we get it and he gets it, then we'll win, get in the playoffs and guys will find homes."

A coach goes to the public to tell them your actions on the court are the reason they dont win, and also saying 'he doesnt get it'.

So harsh yet so true.

Not the winning aspect of the comments because the Knicks would still suck, but that Nate is a loser.

he's only stating the obvious, Robinson looks like a 12 year old kid out there acting out because he needs a nap.

He's ridiculous. And it's too bad because he's a fantastic player.

unfortunately, i dont think he'll change... he's probably been like this his whole life... i bet its whats got him here; that brash, cocky, big-mouth attitude he's got.
he's so small, he's had to overcompensate his whole life by acting like a big shot and talking shit.... he isnt changing becuase some coach called him out. this is nothing new to him.

I know a couple of guys who have Little Man’s Disease.

They're annoying.

I agree with SJ. I like his game.

I just wish he would tone down on the bravado.
