D’Antoni to Hill: I Don’t Play Bad Rookies
The war of words between Knicks coach Mike D’Antoni and Jordan Hill is on.
D’Antoni got his hackles up before yesterday’s Rockets showdown when The Post asked him about ex-Knick Hill’s recent remarks. Hill said he couldn’t strut his stuff in New York because D’Antoni isn’t fond of playing rookies.
"Where does that come from?" D’Antoni said. "Seriously. It’s something that cracks me up. I don’t play rookies? I don’t like to play bad rookies."
