I will start by saying I fell in love with the game because of Magic. I have always respected his opinions of the Lakers organization and how they should play, how they should do everything in their power to ensure they win, etc.
I don't recall him saying hiring Brown was a mistake, maybe I just missed it. Its easy to point the finger after the fact, but it wasn't Brown who choked a few games away vs the Thunder. In crunch time we (kobe too!) folded, period. Then we proceeded to let ourselves get rolled just like against Dallas. Not even Jackson made a difference in that series so not sure why Magic is so adamant about Phil.
iMO the org got it right in choosing Mike over Phil, primarily because there are just too many new players and expecting them to pick up the triangle on the fly is not realistic. Too risky. They couldn't pick basic math (Princeton) and you expect them to pick up Calculus 2 (triangle)???
You have Nash and you want to limit his skill set? Let him run the show and take your chances that given the players that are surrounding him, people will be spoon fed like never before. D Antoni has it right... simplify things and just let them play. As long as everyone is unselfish, we will be fine.
Magic of all people should be honored that D Antoni wants to emulate showtime and pipe down on why Jackson was bypassed. Sit back, enjoy the show.
Talk all you want in June.
