The benefits gained from the Lakers hiring Mike D’Antoni are endless.
Now that the dust has settled, the Lakers’ decision to hire Mike D’Antoni over proven winner Phil Jackson isn’t any less shocking.
The Lakers handed Mike Brown the pink slip after 5 games and will undoubtedly turn to Phil Jackson as their first choice replacement.
I don’t care how “competitive” you are, how “passionate” you are or “what bad timing” it was. Nice try, but blaming that elbow on “two powerhouses colliding” is a lame excuse.
