I think the biggest reason they are hesitant on phil is they dont want a one and done situation. They need a coach thats gonna be there for a while. Phil has always been a wild card when it comes to what he is going to do. 


I don't think he's that big of a wild card. He's coached the Lakers ten of the last 13 years, and it would've been more if the FO hadn't gotten burned out on him.

Is New York in the lottery also? Imagine Jeanie Buss and Phil Jackson sitting side by side representing their respective team during that lottery show. That will be awkward but yet exciting to see.


MDA is an offensive genius. I hope he sticks to his guns and keeps doing what he does best: Run and Gun. That's the only way to coach.

New York wont be in the lottery - they traded their pick. Idiots.

I still don't understand why Phil would want that mess in New York.  There is no way he should take that job.  It will take a lot longer for New York to be out of the mess than it is for the Lakers believe it or not.  Knicks have no cap room for another year or two.   But then again, Phil really hates Jim Buss and want to stick it to the man so

[expletive]. MDA is such a [expletive]ing disaster. Last season he showed that he cant win, although he had a good team in place. This season he's shown that he can't make a bad team any better, despite trying to play his godawfull system and in the process he gets people injured.

 

Now when we're tanking he can't even do that right. Clippers and OKC should have been two close losses, but instead we get embarrased one night by the clippers and the next day we beat the OKC.

Last year we didnt have a good team.

We had Kobe , hurt Dwight, hurt Pau, injured Nash, injured Blake, old Jamison , slow Metta and injured Hill.

As those players got healthy, we won at a high clip.

Steven A. Smith says Mike D'antoni will be GONE next season #LakersNation👌

ZwYMKwr0_bigger.jpegKaywan Saed ‏@k1saed  1h
The fact @stephenasmith said Mike D'antoni will be fired after this season makes me think Lakers might turn this around in 2 years.

sJpWdd4L_bigger.jpegJared Brownlee ‏@BrownleeJared  4h
Mike D'Antoni will be fired at the end of this season, according to @stephenasmith sources in L.A. Should not be a surprise. #LakersNation
