Default The Mike D'Antoni hire was worse than the Mike Brown hire...

and that's saying a LOT.


I mean jesus christ, at LEAST with Mike Brown, you got him after he had several successful seasons with Cleveland in terms of getting them 60 win seasons, and such. Hindsight 20/20 we all know now that Lebron is the Terminator. Nuff said though....there was a mirage where Mike Brown seemed capable, right? Right!



Mike D'Antoni was practically RAN OUT OF NEW YORK like the damn Frankenstein monster.....It got so ugly out there that he was essentially forced to resign.



Dude was EXPOSED. New Yorkers KNEW IT. The nation SAW IT.



And wtf do the Lakers upper brass do? THEY FRIGGIN' HIRE THE GUY.



What a damn nightmare. Get this guy OUTTA' here!



Can most of you honestly tell me with a straight face that deep down you dont think Phil would have them clicking at LEAST a bit better than they are right now? Even if they were still losing, I have to believe Phil would have them looking better than this. This is brutal for the good LA fans out there.

I hated the hire from the moment I heard about it. It made no sense.

D'antoni is laughable as an NBA coach, and did a horrific job w/ New York once they got Carmelo. Having Pau stand out on the 3point line like he's Steve Novak is just a pure disgrace to all that is basketball - and only further proving that the guy is a total ****ing hack.

I will say, though, that having a leader like Kobe is utterly malignant to their teams' success. At this point of his career, if guy isn't scoring, he wont do jack for you.

The bleeding must stop. Fire Dantoni and Jim Buss should pack with him.

When you have Pau Gasol launching up threes then you know the shit aint right.
