<quoted text> I don't know B,not sure if even that should be a big factor. If I was an owner, give me Phil. I would take in consideration of his health. Can't knock his teaching and coaching abilities. D'antoni has proven anything getting teams to the finals. 11 rings vs no Finals. Touch call. Just my thought.
But what You are not taking consideration sammy it's personal feelings, and that's something that tents to cloud judgment mostly when You are in the position of Jim buss, where he actually has to deal with Phil on regular bases and can't stand Phil's ego.

<quoted text> just curious. Have you ever ran or experienced the triangle offense? You think its not that complicated? Just asking.
Sammy it doesn't matter if I ever ran it or not, I'm basing on things that already happened with past teams that Phil had coached since the bulls all the way to the last Lakers' team.

When Phil took over the Lakers in 2000 he brought vets from his previous bulls teams to help in the learning process and the won a title that season and when Pau was traded to the Lakers Phil was asked why Pau's fit into the system was effortless he looked like he has been in playing the triangle for yrs, Phil's answer which was the same as KB when he was asked, was Player IQ.
Now in this team he wouldn't even need to call for vets to come help him, he got a bunch of players from his last stink with the Lakers to help the new ones.

Like I said that's just Media P.R. B.S. helping the Lakers to come down the fans that didn't get Phil which is probably 95% of the L.A. fan base.

yah but phil wanted 12 million a YEAR d'antoni got 12 million over the course of 4 years (3 with club option) big difference.
Oh $12 mil for 4 yrs, I was understanding that it was $12 mil each of the 4 yrs.

Okay guys if the D'Anotoni doeesn't workout for the Lakers and it looks clear in a few month, do You think the Lakers should let him go or let him finish the season?

I think he will do well during the regular season but come playoff time I dont think so, this smells like another jim buss hiring.

another benefit is,(phil) 2 years we would need another coach while we rebuild and need to learn another offense, with d'antoni signed for 3+1 the offense will stay the same while the team rebuilds and won't have to bring in a new coach just an ENTIRE new team lol with only nash signed in 2014 (hopefully dwight too)

In NBA news other than the Lakers signing Mike D’Antoni as their head coach to a three year deal.
The Lakers are looking to add depth to their
bench. With the recent arrest of Devin Ebanks the Lakers may be looking to replace the 3rd year swing man with a key free agent. This could be the end of Devin Ebanks as a Laker. The Lakers bench has shown signs of life unlike last year. With the Lakers showing interest in Mickeal Pietrus, he will give the Lakers a threat off the bench that can score and play defense. He can fill in for Metta World Peace, Kobe Bryant, and even Pau Gasol.

What's up White. First let me say happy belated birthday and wish you many more. As for the D'Antoni hiring, I hope he proves me wrong because we all know how his teams usually operate. Maybe this may be different because hehas better defensive players this time around unlike when he had with the Suns and Knicks. There has to be something more than what they are telling us about why this didn't hire Phil back. Oh well we will just have to work with what we have at this moment and time. We will make the playoffs, but I will be watching how the defense plays. Sounds good that they are thinking about brining Pietrus, but I hope he keeps that Celtic metality away from the Lakers lol.

I'm not sure that this point because that would be 2 coaches fired in one year. I think they will let him finish the season out, but to be honest with you I have no idea what's going to happen. Deep down inside I know this will work for the regular season, but we all know the playoffs is what matters. If he doesn't make it to the Finals then I think he will be gone next year and that also means that can't ask Phil to come back because that was like a slap in the face when they didn't give him the job. Like I was telling white there is more to it than they are telling us.
