Not the worst pickup for the Lakers but you can bet if things don't go his way he will continue pulling that clueless face and attempting to force a square peg into a round hole, so to speak.
I remember him shouting at Bill Walker because he passed up a three so he can drive inside and get a layup
Also his post game comments after losses are "We didn't make shots."insert opponents team name" are a good team. They made their shots,we didn't. Nothing you can do about that"
I was so frustrated with D'Antoni that I was the happiest man on the planet when I heard he was fired.
