Though Phil Jackson is the greatest coach of all time, Mike D’Antoni could be a better fit for the Lakers.
For the Lakers and Dwight Howard, “Showtime” should be the future. For the present, it should work just fine as well. With Mike D’Antoni, the Lakers are not
mortgaging their future for the sake of the present, as they would be with Jackson. D’Antoni is qualified to lead them now, and positioned to transition the Lakers into the future.
