Currently, I am afraid that D' Antoni might not just have to fear losing his current job, but being done with the NBA all together now and the future.

Look at it this way. He has a three year guaranteed contract which he will be 65 after. If he gets fired, it makes little sense for him to get another coaching gig as the NBA rules dictate his new salary will be deducted from the money he is owed (nice one coaches' union if there is one). He is better off going TV at this point.

D'Antoni is good for the college game, too bad college players don't have the jumper like they do in the pros. But running the floor is what they love to do.

By the end of the year I think he is gone. I also think the Lakers will probably go after Phil after the season is over like they should have done at first :lol: . But I think Mike Antoni (No D for obvious reasons), is not a NBA head coach and I for one don't really see what's so special about his offense. It's basically PNR in a rare half-court set or a fast break three for a 3pt shooter (Another thing the lakers lack to run Antioni's "System"). Lakers have so much talent and waste it on Pringles.....Shame on not noticing how bad of a coach he is while in New York. :lol:

Pringles stopped worrying about the Laker job the minute the 12 million dollar check cleared...

Him and his freeloading brother are nothing but snake oil salesmen,
and the NBA teams represent the sucker born every minute.

The media has sold the unwise a bill of goods when they called this man a genius. He has never won a championship but yet he was dubbed a genius because he had a nice run with Nash and STAT. He was exposed in New York and is being exposed again in Los Angeles. As bad as he is he will still be given a longer leash than Mike Brown.

I was one of the biggest Pringles haters when he was our coach.

And this terrible run of the Lakers is actually making me feel bad for him.




Actually no, I am fcking reveling in this ****. Love seeing his dope of a brother Dan D'Antoni sitting on the bench looking just as flustered, and secretly thanking God that he's getting paid six figures to be a glorified towelboy for Kobe.

We need to send one last FU to Pringles and the Lakers by getting them to agree to an Amare/Pau swap. :lol:

Dwight will be gone, if the ownership is so worried about him staying and Dwight crying about touched then they should get him more touches to keep him happy. With the Knicks doing better without D'Antoni's system and Lakers struggling with D'Antoni's system. It just shows he can't make adjustments with the players he got.

After he gets fired from the Lakers this year, the College level is where he belongs.

Apparently, Dwight is the second in the league in post touches right after Al Jefferson.

I think DAntoni sucks and they should get rid of him but Dwight sucks even more. I wouldn't build a team around him.
