Once money is spent, it's gone for them to keep spending would not be wise...

They are a family business, not a corporation-backed business

They are backed by a huge TWC deal. Fix the problems now, you'll be rewarded in the future.

Mike D'Antoni is GARBAGE.

MDA will get fired or he will resign before All Star weekend. I believe in our FO.

Mike D'Antoni is GARBAGE.

He better be fired soon, the guy cannot coach. He should adjust to the players he has, not the other way around.

Boy we may see a record for most coaches on payroll who aren't coaching.

Should have hired Sloan. Could have gotten your F U phil Jackson while still getting an elite coach

That would have been the logical thing anyways

I wanna see what GCMD has to say. He was very supportive of Mike D'Antoni iirc

I keep saying that I don't expect the front office to continue the bleeding. But at the same time, I didn't expect them to let it get this bad.

It kind of drives me insane that people are talking about trading Dwight for guys that better fit D'Antoni's system. Why in the world would we trade away our future franchise player for a coach who can't win no matter what roster he has? The problem I see with his system is that it is not for star players. It is geared for role players who can hit perimeter shots. That is all fine and D'Andy (you see what I did there?) if the team is winning games, but I do not see a "role-player" team beating a team like Miami or OKC in a 7 game series.

I am tired of stretch 4s.

We need a rough, physical, dirty, 4.

Futebol clubs fire coaches like nothing, so let's go ahead and do this.

Soccer owners could buy the lakers twice over

And also I'm pretty sure FIFA and the English premier leagues and Spanish leagues have different rules on firing coaches than the NBA

If I recall the press conference correctly; Mitch said this team was "built to win, and built to win now" as to one of the reasons why Brown was exiled. Well, D'Antoni hasn't done any better with the roster.. so how is the situation any different? We're still in the same sinking ship, just a different "Mike". It seems the FO simply doesn't want to swallow their pride (again) and admit to another mistake.

And promptly. Work out the financials, throw him a suitcase to pack his belongings up and send his ass packing. Then try to salvage whatever is left of our miserable season under Bickerstaff.

If the front office is afraid of firing D'Antoni because of his contract, they need to realize that if the losing continues, fans will stop coming. Imagine the money that would be lost if fans stopped caring. Not to mention that D'Antoni can potentially run Dwight out of town, and after Kobe retires what will fans come to watch?

I wonder if firing d'antoni is a good or bad message to Howard

On one hand it looks like they do everything to win

On the other hand it looks like the FO is a bunch of buffoons who can't get a coaching hire right

As long as kobes playing people will pay. That's not enough motivation

Dwight leaving and the losing is the real motivation. Sad because I actually have grown to like the dufus. He's a bad coach but he's kind of likable
