I think D’antoni is moving the needle in the NBA…this will be something to watch.
The Rockets are going to play super-small, and launch an ungodly number of 3s. As is, about 44% of their shots are 3s – the league’s highest share. That number jumps to an even 50% with P.J. Tucker at center, per Cleaning The Glass, and it might jump higher now. Mike D’Antoni has often said his regret from his Seven Seconds or Less days in Phoenix is that he did not take the small-ball, 3-point revolution far enough. Now, he gets to oversee its natural endpoint.
