So long as the lakers are winning, they can take their time negotiating with Phil. Bickerstaff is doing a fine job managing the player roles and rotations here.
It's not D'Antoni's track record on defense......It's his philosophy to disregard defense and use your energy on offense. With the talent level we have on this team we may get away with it if Nash, Pau, Kobe...and Metta were in their 20's.
This crap is not going to work now.....we cannot fly up and down the court shooting in 7 seconds.....and not having a half court offense negates having Dwight.
