Mike D'Antoni is GARBAGE.

It all started with hiring Mike Brown

Then it continued with hiring Mike D'Antoni over PJ (LMAO)

I do think the first two months. The Lakers did assume their talent alone would win games.

Sometimes the players, these vets and accomplished players don't assert themselves enough.

Their talent could win them games. But they need a system that works for them. And a man leading them who they respect, and who is a master motivator. Hmmm....

People had high expectations and they are surprised at how badly the Lakers are doing.

But when you think about everything: new coach, new big name players playing together for first time, new bench, constant line-up changes, major season ending injuries, lingering injuries, and on and on.....

it would be a surprise if they had a good season let alone a play-off run, let alone make the finals. Kind of ridiculous to think it should be going great.

We were swept by the Clippers.

We will miss the Play-Offs.

We have the largest payroll in the league.

We spurned and publicly humiliated Phil Jackson.

We traded away our (Lottery) pick in the upcoming draft.

Dr. Buss is going to die.


Try to stay positive.

Look at how the Lakers played Miami pretty close.

Hey, it's something.

But I hear you.

Phil wasn't public ally humiliated. He was humbled.

People kill me.

The [expletive] you mean he was humbled?

Look at this team...they're the ones who are humbled...and the front office.

He was humbled. Wanted big money, certain perks and was not all in when asked.

Obviously Phil is the best choice for any job, but if he REALLY wanted the job and he knew it, why leave wiggle room for Lakers to pursue any other coach?

I love Phil but if Miami won with Spolestra. I mean come on.

At any rate , Phil was FAR from humiliated.

He didn't. Jim Buss's head was up his own ass. Don't know if there was any wiggle room in there or not.

You don't know that he wanted big money. In any case, he's been worth every penny in both Chicago and LA.

Brown has coached Lebron and Kobe...what does he have to show for it? D'antoni has coached great players and what does he have to show for it?

Pau Gasol is GONE

Yes, because of the expectations this year. As I dubbed this season "The Season from Hell".

This is one of the worst seasons any professional team has had in the last twenty years. Forget Laker history, we're talking about the history of professional sports as a whole.

Brown coached LeBron before he made that leap. We saw what he did in the Finals against Dallas. If you want to get on Pau for shrinking, then u got to get on LeBron for that display.

He matured since then.


Phil
Is the absolute greatest of all time, but being under .500 is indicative of more problems than coaching.

In fact, Dr. Buss saved Phil a ton of stress. Hill and Pau still would be injured. Phil would not have played young players, it would have been a better record because Phil would rested Kobe and Nash more( D'Antoni cost us a game by playing Kobe too many minutes) but Phil has low-lights.
Up 3-1 in a series vs D'Antoni and the team blew it. The way he handled Kobe early in Kobe's career was unfair at times. Swept by Dallas. The Detroit debacle. Also we lost three games in a row heading into ASB his last season including to the Cavs without LeBron, Varejoa or Kyrie.

I don't know Phil's conditions and I don't know if it was primarily Dr B or Jim but I do know that Phil would want a healthy Dwight, Pau and Hill if he were coming back to win a title. Can't beat any of the Top 10 teams in a series without at least Dwight and Gasol playing at a high level.
