This year would end badly, I would expect them to fire him. Then hire a good coach before signing a superstar or two. We're just going to have to endure for one season. After that season we're going to be back on top again.
The problem is that this isn't just a message to D'Antoni it's the pattern of every Laker offseason. How many times is this team going to sign wastes of space like Troy Murphy, Kapono and Joe Smith.
