    That team was tailor made for Sloan. Poor 3pt shooting, Center used to having the ball funneled inside, defensive specialist at SF, HOF players at PG & PF, and a bunch of scrubs to coach up as role players. Those people are idiots. Thank goodness.

    I didn't think that the Lakers had the three point shooting for the "seven seconds or less" offense. However, the offense should run through Steve Nash, now. That's a good thing for them.

    This is going to be a disaster. I love it.

    LOL....

    I don't think it really matters who coaches them. They're to old, slow, no 3 pt shooting, and no bench.

    I hope D'Antoni installs his offense. Nash will run down the court, see he's playing 1 on 5, and notice that his 4 teammates are still struggling with their walkers and wheelchairs to cross the half court line... Of course, who knows if Nash is ever really going to play this year? He's not exactly off to a great start. Perhaps this is finally the year where Nash's wheels fall off?

    Lakers don't have the horses or the 3 point shooting to run that offense ala the Suns a few years back. Of course, anything will be an upgrade over whatever they were trying to run before. I also have a feeling that those players will probably play harder under D'Antoni. It really seemed like they were trying to get Brown fired. I've never seen the Lakers roll over so easily and quickly in Salt Lake.

    I am just really puzzled by the D'Antoni hire for the Lakers. It's like Phil was just like, uhhhh, no thanks.

    I think they were planning on Phil jumping at it and were like "oh ****, now what"

    I think Phil didn't want to do road trips or all the practices. "Hey if I can just show up for the home game I'm in"

    I saw that too. Probably combined with his underwhelming final season made their decision easier. IMO they still should have gone after Sloan. Maybe he turned them down.
