Or for them to fire their coach five games into the season and hire a coach who is arguably the worst possible fit (with his system) for an older team. Still can't believe they hired D'Antoni to implement his run-and-gun system with a Lakers roster better suited playing more of a slow-tempo halfcourt game. And the bad fit has been even more magnified with the number of bad defenders playing for a coach who doesn't give a shit about defense. Kobe, who even in his later years could be a really good defender at times, has turned into a horrible lazy defensive player.
