Well the adjustment won't be a factor for either IMO. When Phil first took over the Lakers, they started 30-5 in their first 40 games. In his second stint, they struggled and were around .500 for the season but that roster consisted of Smush and Kwame.
D'Antoni's offense is more free flowing so there really wouldn't be an adjustment period there.
One thing people need to really look at is the long term aspect of the team. Best case scenario is Phil coaches the team for 2 years, then we go into that off-season with Dwight and Nash under contract, bring in a new coach and start off a new era under Dwight.
I think we should also focus on who benefits our bench as well. Our starting unit will be awesome but we do have a LOT of talent on our bench, would our lineups with the stretch players benefit more from D'antoni or from Phil? Cause if our bench is putting up 40 a game I'll be happy(37 tonight)
Whichever benefits our starters and our bench players would be a good choice
Though it would be interesting irony if Phil was the guy that beat his own team record with the Bulls with THIS team
