Why is he so high on Blake


He's talking about Blake that was a good 3-point shooter with Portland. He probably never watched him on the Lakers. :laughing:

Damn D'Antoni says we should be averaging 110-115 points a game :whatthe:


he's setting the bar too high :smh:

Kobe and Randle led Lakers lead the team to a 32-50 record. the Lakers select Myles Turner with the 5th pick.

He's VERY into using Meeks

Love when he said "we gotta get to the point where games don't come down to the last possession."

To be fair, Mr. Potato Head sounded close to this good in his intro press conference. But I think Pringles will be a much better fit.

He also talked about how he was gonna love using Lamar and on Lopez Tonight how his son was looking forward to meeting Lamar the most and how many plays he'd already made for the Lamar Gasol combination :P Then Mitch and Jim said CHRIS PAUL and David Stern said NO WAY and Lamar said I'M SAD AND GONE and Gasol said I'M SAD AND DEPRESSED and Mitch said

Loved his attitude. There were some tweets saying he looked a lot more comfortable in this press conference than he did in his NY presser.

Different philosophy than Mike Brown. I love his personality more than Brown's already. There wasn't a lot of that generic coach speak. Wants this team to score thats for sure. If his offensive strategy works and we can play some decent defense, this team will be right there at the end.

D'antoni pretty much said no one is gonna be able to stop Dwight and he doesn't care what they do they won't be able to stop him.

It's true, in D'antoni's offense and spacing Dwight will get very easy opportunities.

*Says Pau Gasol will see some time at Center.

*Already told Jodie Meeks to stop trying to drive and just shoot.

*Says there is no reason why we shouldn't average 110-115 PPG.

*Says no reason why we shouldn't be a good defensive team, admitted that the personnel to be successful at defense in Phoenix just wasn't there.

*When Phoenix got Steve Nash, he learned the offense in literally an hour and a half. Doesn't expect a long transition for the team.

*No set plays we be called.

*Interesting theory about possessions. Says if your team is more talented than the other team, you benefit from having more possessions because chance, random variation, and bad calls will have a lesser impact on the game relatively speaking.

*Dwight's touches and ability to get to the rim should increase. When 100% healthy, expects Dwight to be "unstoppable".

*D'Antoni thinks Steve Blake is perfect for the system and said that he's wanted Blake on his teams for the past 10 years.

*Dismisses the "small ball can't win in the playoffs" notion. Said that San Antonio beat the Suns in the playoffs using small ball and that it's not like the Suns owned the Spurs in the regular season and then suddenly failed in the playoffs. The Suns sucked against the Spurs in the regular season too so it was just a bad matchup.

*Says that great players make great coaches. Coaches can only screw things up (Mike Brown anyone?).

*He wants to give players a leash and let them gain a sense of comfort. Doesn't want to over-coach (Mike Brown anyone?).

My worry with D'Antoni is adjustments and how he utilizes the dynamic of this team (not necessarily what offense he will run, more or less what type of schemes vs other teams).. The only way I consider this a bad hire is if this team fails to maintain a high level of fluidity and control on the offensive end.
