Mike D'Antoni wasn't winning in NY, and he isn't gonna win in LA even with an all star team. He's got NO D, and he relys on the pick n roll.
The Zen Master wasn't given a chance because he's been plugging Jeanie Buss for 10 years.. and Kupcakes, I mean Kupchak doesn't want this to be the Phil Jackson show. Especially after all the b.s. moves Kupchak has blown (not trading Bynum for Kidd, etc.) Over the years.
You know they can score points... Get the Lakers focussed on D, and watch what happens.
