"You guys know how I feel about Phil," Bryant said. "The one thing that's kind of always bothered me is that his last year (in 2011) I wasn't able to give him my normal self, you know what I mean? Because I was playing on one leg. That's always eaten away at me. The last year of his career I wasn't able to give him everything I had." Jackson's exit was unflattering, indeed, with his team being swept by the eventual NBA champion Dallas Mavericks in the Western Conference Semifinals, and former Lakers Andrew Bynum and Lamar Odom being ejected for bush-league moves in Game 4. "He's too great of a coach to go out that way," Bryant said. "That's my personal sentiment. For me, it was just … I took it to heart because I couldn't give it everything that I had, because my knee was shot. That's always kind of bothered me."
So Kobe obviously wanted Phil. They met with him & he asked for a few days to think it over, I believe they signed D'Antoni the same night or the following day and didn't even give Phil a chance.

Dwight Howard himself said that he left because they didn't sign Phil.

Dwight was cool with D'Antoni as well, until he left after the season & blasted the Lakers for going with him over Phil. We didn't have a 3-point shooting team and we hired a guy who's offense is built around perimeter shooting, had Pau Gasol and Ron Artest out there taking 5+ threes a game until Kobe took control of the offense and went to the post and carried us to the POs.
