Mike D'Antoni plans to coach Lakers on Sunday

Mike D'Antoni plans to coach Lakers on Sunday

Quote:
Just finished interviewing new Lakers Coach Mike DíAntoni by telephone, and howís that for a fine start in town ó he's talking to Page 2.

Itís going to take a little while to transcribe tape and write a column, but hereís how we began Tuesday morning.

"Got bad news for you, Mike. Youíre losing 73% to 11% to Phil Jackson in a poll of who people would like to see coaching the Lakers."

DíAntoni laughs. "Iíve got some really close friends who are Laker fans and they were disappointed I got the job."

Reminded that the fans in Staples Center have been chanting, "We want Phil," DíAntoni says, "They canít chant, 'We want Mike,' because they got him."

DíAntoni is still recovering from reconstructive surgery on his right knee. Heís getting around now with one crutch or a cane.

He will fly to Los Angeles on Wednesday, meet his team Thursday and says heís probably aiming to make his Lakers coaching debut Sunday.

"When I feel better Iíll start coaching, and I think miraculously Iíll start feeling better when Steve [Nash] is feeling better," he says. "Iíve already tried coaching without him and that didnít work out too well, so Iím thinking Iíll be smart this time."

If the tape recorder batteries hold up, more to come soon.

We play the Suns on Friday. I believe that's also Kareem's statue unveiling. Poor Cap still can't make headlines lol

Damn. The unveiling is at 4:30 but I won't be near Staples until about 5-5:30. Would've been cool to see the unveiling of the statue. No wonder Kareem is on the tickets for that game. Didn't even think about that.

I was there for Chicks statue unveiling. It was cool to see all the older players mixed with some of the younger ones. I'm sure more will turn out for Cap.
