Approximately 25% of the time, perhaps.

D'Antoni hired by the Lakers. Bring back the seven seconds or less offense!

Looks like we still got a chance to sweep the Lakers this year after all!

I think D'Antoni brought his name up by himself. Don't think any team wanting to contend in this league would give him a chance after that Knicks fiasco.


LOL. Huge fail by myself. And obviously huge fail by the Lakers, too. :lol:

Good to see Wayne lighting up the Heat with his occasional good game of the season. We still won that trade, though.

I don't know about Ellington. Maybe it's just his only game at this level, but Grizzlies fans seemed happy with his play before the game against Miami. Now they must be nuts :D

Kurt Rambis: "The Lakers organization chose Mike D'Antoni over the more qualified Phil Jackson. In other news, I just lost my one and only chance of getting another assistant coach position. This is Kurt Rambis reporting for ESPN. FML"

I forgot about the D'Antoni/Nash connection until someone brought it up on SportsCenter this morning.

Ric Bucher ‏@RicBucher

Seeing job Rick Adelman is doing w/TWolves w/out Rubio/Love raises question: is that where Lakers' HC search went wrong?

That's glaringly obvious. They really effed up by not going after Adleman hard and I tell Lakers fans that often.

What an amazing take, Bucher. You're only a year and a half late to the party, dolt.

Hey, seeing Michael Jordan's wikipedia page last night raises the question: did Portland maybe make a mistake in drafting Sam Bowie over him?
