“People gave ear to an upstart astrologer who strove to show that the earth revolves, not the heavens or the firmament, the sun and the moon…. This fool wishes to reverse the entire science of astronomy; but sacred Scripture tells us [Joshua 10:13] that Joshua commanded the sun to stand still, and not the earth”
-Martin Luther on Copernicus’ On the Revolutions of the Heavenly Spheres

When he gazes out onto the finely waxed hardwood surface of the practice floor, the Italian League legend, former Phoenix Suns head coach, offensive guru and current man at the helm of the S.S. New York Knicks sees something revolutionary. It’s not the old guard, earth-based, slow-paced offensive game of decades before. D’Antoni is a heliocentrist.
