Mike D’Antoni Rumors

Q. You guys had a great year, and there are things to build on. So what do you tell your guys in the offseason? What is the message for them?

A good summer of — you know, we turned it on defensively, I think, from the All-Star break on. That will not slip. We’ll get even better there. And so I’m obviously optimistic because of the guys we’re dealing with, and they’re winners. You keep knocking on the door, and they’ll eventually open.
