Mike D'Antoni said the Los Angeles Lakers' issue is of the entire team coming together.
The Lakers lost to the Memphis Grizzlies on Wednesday by a 106-93 final.
"We've got an All-Star team out there," D'Antoni said. "Have you ever watched an All-Star Game? It's God-awful because everybody gets the ball, they go 1-on-1 and then they play no defense. That's our team. That's us. We're an All-Star team and we haven't learned there's a pecking order. There's the one guy, the two guy, the three guy and the four guy. It might not be the same guy every night, but somebody has got to accept being the fourth guy. If you've been the first guy all your life, that's hard to accept. That's what happens in All-Star (Games) and that's what happened with us. Like I said, with today's meeting, hopefully we've overcome a little bit of that. I hope. We'll see."

But no, not in this offense. D'Antoni's answer:

Last night's game against Memphis was proof. The subs were in and holding their own and keeping the game really close, even ahead at times. 8 min left in the 2ndQ, the starters come in, and bingo, the Lakers are down by 10 in an instant.
I am beginning to think this is a personality and chemistry issue. The guys may not like eachother. It has been reported that Kobe is tough to deal with, and he is not above diss'ing Shaq, Bynum, Gasol, and now Howard.
Maybe Kobe should take over as player coach.
