Knicks Coach Mike D'Antoni spent a few minutes today on NBA TV's Real Training Camp . During that interview he hinted at expanding his rotation. The Mustached One has been notorious for using 8 or 9 players during any given game. Now that the Knicks have reloaded with a young and talented roster, D'Antoni's biggest challenge may prove to be finding minutes for players and keeping everyone happy. He's already named Amar'e Stoudemire and Raymond Felton Co-Captains and it's safe to assume that Danillo Gallinari, Ronny Turiaf, Anthony Randolph and Wilson Chandler will get some major burn this season. It will be interesting to see how rookies Landry Fields and Andy Rautins get worked in along with Roger Mason Jr. and Kelenna Azubuike. How many minutes will Timofey "Drago" Mozgov earn in a system that isn't known for being friendly to slower big men? Will Eddy Curry ever see the court? Will Patrick Ewing Jr. prove to be worthy of signifigant minutes? Will Bill Walker be the odd man out?
D'Antoni considering expanding the roster is perhaps a sign that he is willing to adjust to his personnel. To me the most important issue with this roster will be team chemistry. They will most likely be experimenting with various lineups throughout the early part of the season with players seeing minutes at several positions. If they can find a way to work as a cohesive unit it could be a win win for everyone involved, since D'Antoni will feel like he has more flexibility. How do you see the Expansion Experiment playing out?
