Congratulations Nate Robinson

Last night the New York Knicks beat the Atlanta Hawks 112-108 in overtime with Nate Robinson scoring 41 points. On the surface this is not extraordinary, but Nate was benched unfairly for 13 games by coach Mike D'Antoni. Why should a talented player making millions of dollars sit on the bench? The Knicks are still recovering from the managerial and coaching failures of Isiah Thomas. I am not thrilled with the coaching of Mike D'Antoni. For several games only 8 players were used. What is the sense of doing that when there are 12 players on the roster. This will certainly tire out those 8, while the skills of the bench warmers could erode. Nate Robinson certainly stood up to the poor coaching by scoring 41 points in his return. Perhaps the Knicks would have won a few more games during Nate's absence. A former colleague told me years ago that one's best revenge is success.

There are parallel situations in the business world when employees often suffer from poor and ineffectual management.
