Mike D'Antoni Resigns From Lakers



I can't even be objective about this post to tell you the truth, as a Lakers' fan, I am so happy right now. After coaching the Los Angeles Lakers through their worst season in franchise history, coach Mike D'Antoni resigned from his post.



Not many other coaches would have survived the season under the immense slander he received from the Lakers' fan base. He didn't have much ammunition from the armory, as Kobe Bryant missed most of the season with injury to highlight the MASH unit that masqueraded as a professional basketball team. He was constantly at odds with the best player, Pau Gasol, and his defensive schemes were comical at best.


I tip my hat to coach Mike D'Antoni for doing the right thing by stepping down. Now, the coaching search begins. Who is next? Byron Scott? John Calipari? The NBA will be waiting for the announcement.
