And that will be a mistake.

 

"Oh I have Dwight Howard, lets play fast and shoot 30 threes a game".

 

His "system" is garbage. Dude literally owes his coaching career to Steve Nash.

 

Isn't that what it was like in Orlando? Dwight in the middle with J.J Reddick, Hedo, and Ryan Anderson?

It is always important to have spacers on the floor to help prevent the defense from collapsing in the middle, but many spacers aren't exactly known for their defense. Teams do not win rings without consistent defense.

The REAL question i this, since D'Antoni WILL get one more START of a season to see if he does better than Mike Brown did in his "training camp" season.

 

 

If D'Antoni is smart, he'll assemble a GREAT group of assistants, not that bernie and etc aren't good, but I think we have a bunch of guys who came here to do one job and things changed.

 

Let's see if D'Antoni makes wise choices for assistants(Nate McMillian maybe)

Dwight at least got to shoot the ball in Orlando. And Stan Van Gundy had that team playing defense. Those are the differences.

You aren't getting Phil back.


So even if D'antoni was fired you wouldn't get Phil and would be disappointed anyway.

You also aren't getting Shaw and if you've seen one Pacers game you would bash your head on a desk if our offense was as sloppy.

We also don't have the capability of having an athletic defensive 4(he's injured) so we wouldn't be playing defense like the Pacers either.


Adelman is also retiring after this year.


So before you jump on the fire D'antoni bandwagon. Understand you won't be getting Phil, Shaw, or Adelman and ask yourself who you'd truly be alright with.

And then realize all your hopes resting on Phil returning will never happen and the alternatives would leave you feeling just as empty :)

I agree with the sentiment of needing to find a better replacement to fire D'Antoni, but the truth is there are better alternatives even with those names gone because how much of a disaster D'Antoni has been. He can't hide any of the Lakers' defensive problems, and the offense isn't that great. He insists on not only playing our older players huge minutes, but having them play in a system that constantly has them running up and down the court. It's been an absolutely horrible fit.

Mike D'Antoni sucks. I TRULY don't care if we replaced him with a coach from the high school level; he's that bad. Who's fault is it PJ isn't here? The front office [expletive]ed up yet again and now everyone is suffering because of their stupidity.

This is what I'm saying. An assistant that has never had a job would be better than him at this point. This was a fiasco.

His one good quality was not being afraid to not play Pau. Even that disappeared for whatever reason.
