This. IMO D'antoni did a fine job with all the injuries to the roster. Lakers had no business winning more than 15-16 games this season in the West.

I love Magic but that was kind of beneath him.

Yeah. He sounds like a teenager whose teacher was just laid off. Act like the businessman you want people to think you are.

Magic does that stuff all of the time. I try to avoid him as a commentator because of how fondly I remember him as a player.

While I'm glad that D'Antoni's gone, he wasn't even close to being the biggest thing wrong with the Lakers. But it's very difficult to win without a culture of defensive accountability, so he had to go.

Lakers will take time in coaching search, but consider Ollie, Calipari, Byron, Gentry, Dunleavy, DFish, Karl, JVG, Rambis on initial list.

THIS. Since when has Magic lowered himself to making comments like this.

I would bet that Ollie is #1 on the list because of his knowledge of the NBA, his success at UConn, and his strong relationship with Kevin Durant. I seriously doubt the will go with Laker retreads like Dunleavy or Rambis as they will want to make a splash and excite their fans.

Agreed. I'd love for us to go for a first time head coach. Sam Cassell is another guy I'd like us to consider.

No. I think he's better suited for a young, upstart team. I get why the Dubs are interested in letting him go.

I would still grab him in a heartbeat
