After the Los Angeles Lakers fired Mike Brown on Friday, everyone with a brain thought the next head coach of the struggling Lakers would be the two-time former head coach, Phil Jackson.

As a Heat fan, I'm really pleased they passed up Jackson and hired D'Antoni.

D'Antoni is an offensive coach - their defense is really going to suck.

Buss and Jackson haven't played nice. Very disappointing.

The ZenMaster didnt see that one coming! Guess he thought more of himself than the Lakers thought about him.

KoMe does not want to play "D". One of the weakest part of KoMe's game is "D". He is over-rated in "D". His man torches him all the time thru his sixteen or seventeen years.

well so far it seems to be working, and i think they should bring pau gasol. off the bench as the sixth man. it will enhanced their bench a whole lot...and put antwain in the starting line up.

Im just curious as to why LA Nation didnt b!tch about that CLOWN, Mike Brown as much as this guy. Brown was a clusterfvcck on offense and an utter failure on the defensive side--and this from an acclaimed "defensive coach".

Coach of the Year my ass. Lebron was the coach of the year. Judge that...

D'antoni is exponentially better than Brown, its laughable.
