@ramonashelburne: Phil's agent, Todd Musburger tells ESPNLA: "Don't say you've got until Monday, then roust him at midnight to say, We hired somebody else. That's just not fair dealing and Phil deserved fair dealing. He's a good faith person and he was dealt with poorly. It is indicative of the shabby way that organization is being run. There were no demands, outrageous or otherwise. To say that he wanted control or that he wanted a zillion dollars or that he wanted equity, those were not topics discussed. If Lakers didn't spread those thngs, the fact they didn't take affirmative stance to correct the record is very troublesome. Phil brought nothing but trophies to their bookcase and value to the franchise. He deserved to be dealt w/ honestly""

Re: UPDATE: Phil Out, D'Antoni In

So a month or two ago it was "We got Nash and Howard! We're the best run franchise in the league. People just give us their star players!"


Now you guys are run like shit, Phil Jackson is a saint, and blah blah blah.... shut up.


No ones hiring Phil to coach home games. Its a joke. And you guys are mad at the Lakers for turning that down?

Re: UPDATE: Phil Out, D'Antoni In

I'll post the same thing I posted in the lounge.

I don't think Phil is telling the whole truth here.

He expects us to believe that the Lakers came to him, he told them he could do it, but then the Lakers pulled the rug out from him before it was finalized? Why would they have done that if he hadn't made some kind of request or demand they didn't find acceptable?

Let me guess Phil, it's because Jim Buss hates you so much, right? Sorry I don't buy that is what happened. My guess is that the Lakers came to him, he wanted some concessions the Lakers weren't willing to give and so they went to D'Antoni. I don't doubt that Jim might have preferred someone other than Phil but I don't think it was some sort of F U to PJ.

Re: UPDATE: Phil Out, D'Antoni In

I don't buy it either. Phil didnt "solicit or ask for the opportunity" yet Jim of all people calls him to set up a meeting and the Lakers just pull out the next day? Something doesn't smell right. Why would the Lakers pull out after it was THEM that reached out to Phil when they know D'Antoni is waiting in the wings to take the job? Unless Phil demanded something they didnt like.

I never "bashed" the triangle.

I just said I hated it. You have your likes and dislikes, and I have mine.

I rather see teams run up and down the court. To me, "Showtime" basketball is what basketball should be. Not this ****ing boring triangle, Princeton, elliptical, Harvard, parallelogram, Yale, what-the-****-ever you want to name it, its all the same to me.

BORING.

He's obsessed with me. I chalk it up to his low self-esteem of himself.

Not to surprised by this hiring. Buss has had a huge boner for fast break offense since the 80's.

Let's not act like Jim Buss is bound in rationality. This is the same guy who hired Mike Brown based on one interview.

Re: UPDATE: Phil Out, D'Antoni In

If you ask me to pick a side between Phil and Jimmy I'm going Phil every time.

If Phil thought Jimmy was a dick and asked for more so he would be able stomach working with said dick then I can't be mad at him.

Does D'antoni get booed his first home game?

No way D'Antoni gets booed. Fans still wanted him if Phil wasn't going to get the job.
