    Defense and D'Antoni

    Sure is gonna be a fun season following the Lakers.
    inb4 the Buss' fire their 2nd coach in 1 season, WTF are they thinking signing him to 4 years.

    Well that was on melo staging a protest. He could have, but he probably didn't want to commit to d to give the illusion that a problem had been fixed. He wanted D'Antoni gone and Im glad he did because he wasn't right for our team anymore and needed to go.

    But with that said if you look at the first part of last season, it wasn't the same as it was the year before with the premelo trade Amar'e run type team. We weren't giving up a crazy amount of points or running the floor like mad. It was slowed down a good deal but the offense wasn't clicking because we didn't have a point guard.

    We did with lin and maybe thats why we went on such a long winning streak. Who knows.

    I just think if we want people to look at Carmelo for who he is now as a player and stop judging him by old stereotypes its only fair to do that for D'Antoni.

    Default L.A. shuns Jackson in favor of the D'Antoni system: run, have fun, guard no one

    I hate Stephen A. Smith he is a clown and a 76 apologist









    The [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] want us to believe that they've made the right move. That hiring Mike D'Antoni as their new head coach was the right thing to do. For [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]. For [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]. For [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]. For a franchise in desperate pursuit of its 17th NBA title.
    Yet the fact that it came at the expense of an 11-time champion, Phil Jackson, means the Lakers did not make the right move at all. The fact that Jackson, according to league sources, had been led to believe the job was his to turn down makes hiring D'Antoni a bad move.


    It reveals that the Lakers might actually deem entertaining basketball more important than winning rings. And that is what's most alarming of all.
    Let Bryant try to sell everyone on D'Antoni all he wants. Let the Lakers' executives do the same with their rhetoric, telling the basketball world they were "unanimous that D'Antoni was the best coach for the team at this time."
    There's no getting around the Lakers' choice to pass over a tried-and-true champion in favor of a coach who lacks an affinity for defense, and whose definition of success seems to be how many points his teams score.
    When the Lakers feel bitten in the proverbial backside, it should come as no surprise.
    "I love PJ, but I'm very excited about D'Antoni," Bryant told ESPN early Monday.
    We'll see.
    Perhaps someone should ask Bryant a couple of poignant questions.
    How will he feel the moment he realizes wannabes, bench-warmers and has-beens are allowed to shoot nearly as much as he is?
    How interested is Bryant, 34, in racing up and down the court over the next 77 games, plus the playoffs, in D'Antoni's frenetic, up-tempo system -- with little regard for a player's ability to hold up? (See: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]'s knees).


    Did I mention the fact that D'Antoni's defenses have never ranked higher than 23rd in his coaching career? That D'Antoni's teams ranked 28th on defense his first three years in New York, before Mike Woodson was forced on D'Antoni during his last season with the Knicks?
    "There isn't a player who significantly contributed to Coach D'Antoni's system who doesn't love the man," one former D'Antoni player told me Monday. "But anyone who tells you that man mentioned defense, let alone preached it, is a liar."
    The truth is the truth.


    I'm not saying that D'Antoni won't win basketball games. To the contrary, he'll win more than his share. The Lakers will end up with one of the league's best records. They'll be entertaining and will be relevant … right up to the moment it's championship time.
    Around that time, the [Only registered and activated users can see links. ], [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] and the [Only registered and activated users can see links. ], or even [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] and the L.A. Clippers will laugh hysterically at the thought of the Lakers trying to defend them.

    don't be surprised if Chris Poopon becomes starting PG.

    I didn't even think of that. I'm glad he's the coach now. It's gonna be crazy.

    Whats your problem with what Stephen A Smith said about it?

    He makes some relevant points, not many other people in the media are saying anything about how **** D'Antoni is

    haha i recognized it all because he said similar things on First Take.
    He also took stabs at Jim Buss and claimed "It's the end of the Lakers as we know them".

    Personally i like him, mainly because he is one of the most outspoken people on TV. Bayless on the over hand, now thats a d*ck.

    Yeah, hiring D'Antoni is one thing, but choosing him over PJ is just down right silly. Im open to peoples potential and adressing their weaknesses... But Its just going to cause controversy and turn players on one another here. PJ wouldn't even have to say anything. He could just come in and BE there and the lakers would have been better.

Supreme stubbornness to the point it seems he'd rather set the ship ablaze and watch it burn and sink as opposed to even remotely consider steering it the direction that someone else suggested, especially when your route doesn't seem to be taking it anywhere.

    Just wait...I can see either a combo of Lee/Bogut/Ezeli or Thompson/Cousins/Hayes, grabbing boards left right and center, and Kobe is looking at MDA like "why in the hell is Jamison still out here??!?!" and MDA is like:

    Hahaha......This post has basically closed the thread for me.

    As ever, nicely put, nuckles.

    D'antoni has the talent to win 70 games but he has the stubbornness to get swept in the playoffs.

    terrible move by the Lakers but everyone thinks since Mike D and Nash are reuniting that it will be the exciting type of bball that can bring a ring.

    Mike D's style has never brought a ring and the style doesnt suit old men. Old guys cant run up the floor...his style fits a Denver Nuggets type of team just young guys with good PG's

    I read it right the first time, the triangle is a better offense than SSOL, you disagree?
