Re: Mike D'Antoni Signed as Lakers Coach

this is a ****ing joke Dantoni is a shit coach just an offensive version of Mike Brown. This shit will be a ****ing nightmare. Phil Jackson deserves to make demands he has 11 rings won this ****ing franchise 5.

Kobe and Pau will not be happy with this at all not even a lil bit.

this is total and utter horseshit and the beginning of the end of the greatness of this franchise as Jim Buss takes control. Kobe's gonna spend his last years enduring this sorta nonsense.

the sky is falling! the sky is falling! He looks tired to me and wanted to take games off + plus he wanted player personnell control, grooming his heir, ownership share% etc - I can understand the Lakers having doubts

actually Kobe already said he liked and was fine with D'Antoni (who has also coached Howard btw) as an option and if this doesnt work Pau is the first one out the door in trade

get off this stupid shit sky is falling my ass. bad moves are bad moves hiring brown was a ****ing mistake and hiring the offensive version of him is even worse.

what the **** has Dantoni won not jack shit with real talent...... his teams if they have a specific roster make up will score alot of points and then crap the bed with an inability to stop anyone and with him being totally unable to make the necessary adjustments before his players quit on him.

as far as PJ is concerned he's earned the right to make demands he's a great coach and no one is sure what are or were the real demands. Only demand I had a problem with is the missing road games thing other than that its good he knows what the heck he's doing.

Kobe likes Dantoni personaly because of the Italy thing Kobe has liked all the coaches until they reveal their incompetence which won't take long at all to surface. Dantoni is a 2nd rate coach he and the Mike Brown's of the world are everywhere. hell give me Jerry Sloan if you want a fall back not Dantoni the fact that 2/3rds of the serious canidates were retread coaches is just a horrible development. Dunleavy seriously lol come on and you think this makes sense.

D'Antoni actually had a pretty decent run with the suns who never had anyone as good as kobe or howard

PJ and no one has earned the right to half ass a season, it's a business - you might feel better if they had gone with phil but that's no guarantee you'd see any better result than the last season he was here and all wrung out and tepid and the Lakers went out in the second round without even a little bit of a fight

glad you know what Kobe likes, you should contact chris brousard and see if he pays for tips - meanwhile I'll just go with what he actually says

Re: Mike D'Antoni Signed as Lakers Coach

Shocked they couldn't get a deal done with Phil.

I just don't see what the rush was. It's not like these available coaches were going to be coming off the market during the season.

Re: Mike D'Antoni Signed as Lakers Coach

Phil didn't want to work for Jim and Jim was apparently the one who was making the decision. So it's not that tough of a choice if you're Jim.

Re: Mike D'Antoni Signed as Lakers Coach

I mean I wish we had gotten Phil back and I depise Jim Buss, but this could be a lot worse. People talk about D'Antoni's shortcomings when he almost won a championship for three straight years with rosters that were less talented than this Laker squad. We'll be fine.

Yeah the Suns had a great pg and pf and a bunch of shooters andf were a threat to no one and then Dantoni went to the Knicks with talent and crapped the bed and the team quit on him. I guess you forgot that huh lol

the last season he was here to actually use what Kobe says was unfortunate because Kobe was playing on ONE LEG and Kobe couldn't give PJ his best and that tainted the final season. PJ wouldn't take the job if he couldn't do it and he wouldn't half ass a job ever PJ has 11 rings 11 let me say it again 11 made 3 straight Finals here again 11 rings back to back in the last few years thats PJ Not Dantoni.

Yeah Kobe says he actually likes the guy answer me this has Kobe actually [played for the man Kobe likes Mike brown he said that as well and the man is ass out.

You keep being rose colored glasses with this shit I will keep it real Dantoni is some shit an emotional whimp who players lose respect for and Kobe and Dwight Howard are 2 strong personalitie4s and its been said that Nash hates him for throwing him under the bus when he left so go figure.

I said firing brown mid year wouldn't improve the team unless Phil came back, and I think I'm about to be proven right.

The lakers will certainly improve from 3-4, but they would of done that even with bickerstaff. Don't see the 2013 banner going up in staples.

Re: Mike D'Antoni Signed as Lakers Coach

I can still see it. The three most talented teams in the league are us, Miami, and the Thunder. OKC got worse in the short term because of the Harden trade and I think we match up fairly well against the Heat.

Lakers insist they chose D'Antoni over Phil. Say triangle offense similar to Princeton and would not have been good fit for roster.
Quote:
Lakers say Phil's so-called demands were not the issue. They didn't wait for his answer on Monday.
Quote:
Sources on both sides (Lakers & Phil) say reports of his exorbitant demands were overblown. No reason for either to lie about that.
Quote:
Lakers know they will take PR hit for choosing D'Antoni over Phil.
Quote:
Lakers felt only Kobe, Pau, MWP would've fit triangle, that offense too complex for others to learn on the fly & it not a good fit.
Quote:
D'Antoni not even cleared to fly yet, not for a few more days. Lakers could've waited for Phil's answer. Clearly wanted Mike D

Re: Mike D'Antoni Signed as Lakers Coach

Pringles? No question PJ is a better coach, but I'm not ready to say it's impossible for us to win rings with Mike.

I do wonder how much of this is about Jim not wanting Phil back.

I'm not mad about this, just disappointed. I really wanted PJ back, but it is what it is. We'll be a ton of fun to watch offensively and I think we'll be good enough defensively.

Phil's gotta be pissed. This is the ultimate slap in the face to him. Of all coaches to choose over him, they went with a guy Phil can't stand.

Supposedly this time around, Mike is going to focus a ton on defense as he learned from his mistakes in the part. We'll see.

Re: Mike D'Antoni Signed as Lakers Coach

Not mad about it. Just slightly disappointed. Difference between this squad and the Nash Suns is that we actually have guys that WANT to play defense. Dwight, MWP and Kobe know that the defense has to be a focus to win and they're not going to let it be put on a back burner. Would've wanted Phil back but we could've done a whole lot worse.
