Not sure if posted but this is awesome

I like how the offense is designed to create multiple options by drawing defenders. This offense will need to be slightly adjusted because of our lack of tremendous three point shooters. This offense won't work quite as well with Kobe, Pau, and MWP on the wing.

Trade Pau for Bargnani and it works out perfectly...

Even D'Antoni was surprised he got the job...

http://espn.go.com/los-angeles/nba/story/_/id/8626462/mike-dantoni-was-stunned-los-angeles-lakers-hired-too

D'Antoni told the New York Daily News that he assumed, like most everybody else, that Jackson was a lock to return to the franchise as Mike Brown's replacement. Brown was fired after the Lakers stumbled badly out of the gate while struggling to learn his Princeton-inflected offense and playing mediocre defense.

"Sure I did," the former Suns and Knicks coach told the newspaper. "For sure I did. Didn't everybody? When I got the call that it was me, my first reaction was, 'Are you serious?'"


Pau Gasol is GONE

I think the Raps would want him too because they could pair him with Calderon.

Politicians do this all the time — for their first interview after a big bit of news or awkward revelation, their first interview is with a friendly media outlet that is not going to pepper them with hard questions.

Mike D’Antoni’s first interview in Los Angeles came Tuesday morning — with Ryan Seacrest. Yes, American Idol Ryan Seacrest. He has a highly rated morning radio show in Los Angels on KIIS 102.7, a station where you can get your fill of Katy Perry and Taylor Swift.

So what did he say to calm down a Lakers nation that considers him the consolation prize after the Lakers cleverly were able to make it feel like D’Antoni is replacing Phil Jackson and not Mike Brown?

“I have some close friends who are Lakers fans and they were disappointed I got the job,” D’Antoni quipped.

Well played.

What did he say? We go to the bullet points.

• He will be in town Wednesday and will coach the team Friday night against the Suns. (Bernie Bickerstaff will coach the Lakers Tuesday night against the Spurs.)

• D’Antoni was “shocked” he got the job because like everyone else, “I was thinking that Phil would take the job but it’s a funny business.”

• He talked about being reunited with Steve Nash: “I’ve already left him once and that didn’t go so good. I’m not going to do that again.”

• He said what Lakers fans want to hear — this is a championship or bust team.

• D’Antoni said he has not spoken to Kobe Bryant yet but sang the praises of the Lakers star: “I’ve known Kobe forever, since he was 12 years old. He’s the greatest talent we have in the game.” (Remember that was Kobe was 12 and living in Italy with his father, D’Antoni was the best player in the Italian league and a big star.)

KEVIN DING ‏@KevinDing

Just talked to Mitch Kupchak, who said Lakers decided they could overcome PR situation of not hiring Phil and pick coach they wanted more.

Mike Bresnahan ‏@Mike_Bresnahan

Lakers GM Mitch Kupchak on his midnight phone call to Phil J: "In those kind of situations, there's not a lot of small talk."

Dave McMenamin ‏@mcten

Mitch Kupchak met with the Lakers beat writers today to clear up how D'Antoni/PJax went down. His message: the P&R was better fit than the ∆

Mike Trudell ‏@LakersReporter

In essence, Kupchak and Dr. Buss/Jim Buss thought D'Antoni's system best fit the personnel, & maximized Howard & Nash.

KEVIN DING ‏@KevinDing

It boiled down to how much more use Mike D'Antoni could get out of Nash and Howard despite "enormous pressure" to hire Phil, Kupchak said.

Mike Trudell ‏@LakersReporter

Difficult not to hire Phil, but they didn't think the triangle suited personnel as well, particularly w/the season already underway.

KEVIN DING ‏@KevinDing

I asked Kupchak about whether Phil had a vision for using Nash in the triangle. Kupchak said: "Obviously I wasn't convinced."

Mark Medina ‏@MedinaLakersNBA

Main theme from Kupchak's interview: He didn't triangle was good fit for some of the new & role players.

KEVIN DING ‏@KevinDing

Decision to pick D'Antoni made around 5:30 pm Sunday. Kupchak said he did want to notify Phil before he maybe said Monday he did want job.

“He gave me confidence in running the offense,” Lin said. “He’s a coach that empowers his players. He gives his players the confidence and freedom to go out and play to the best of their abilities. That’s what he did for me last year.”

“His system is so hard to guard, if the players buy in I don’t see why it wouldn’t work. You have so much spacing and you have Dwight Howard in the middle. The last thing he needs is more space. You have Pau Gasol, a versatile four man who can pick-and-pop, pick-and-drive. And obviously, Kobe (Bryant), he can do it all and Nash, we’ve seen what he did in that

Lin on the hire.
