    Will D'Antoni work with this team?

    I see a lot of different opinions and was curious what most people are thinking. Personally I think it's showtime. I'm not worried about defense because when you have Kobe, Metta, Dwight, and Jordan Hill they are all more than willing to play defense and the rest will fall in line. D'Antoni never had defenders like we have IMO and I believe we could be in for something special with this squad. So i'll leave it up to the poll now to see where everyone stands.

    Yes and all you idiots who whined about Mike Brown and are now whining about this are obviously LMFAO back-up dancers wearing leopard G-Strings.
    List of negative Lakers fans to watch out for this upcoming season on these forums. Even with Steve Nash or D12, they'd find something to complain about:

    Is it that bad to hope for the best for this team?

    Huge gamble by the Laker brass

    First 4 game losing streak under D Antoni is going to be a spectacle

    Your right! And the ”We want Phil chants will come back!” Jim Buss what a idiot!!! The Lakers are built to win right now!!! They dont have a few years to figure this out! In a few years it will be over anyway! Jim Buss proving a point will loose games,players and CHAMPIONSHIPS!

    Since you got my name on this list of so called whiners and complainers, Pointing out issues and problems is not whining and complaning when there actually is a problem. All things in life are not and should not be seen through rose colored glasses. I am a person that when things are good, I will point that out. When things are bad I will point that out too. Last time I checked that's what this is for. Calling out somebody for their opinion isn't cool. I respect everybody and ther opinion (even if I don't agree with it). I don't call people stupid or idiots.

    And futhermore so Mike Brown was doing a bad job, Should I have said it was a good job just to be positive, I don't think so. When players are not playing well should we say oh that's o.k. it will get better. I don't know about you, But on my job..You get a few chances to do a job right and then if you don't, They show you door. Why should this be any different. That's like the teacher who won't mark papers in red ink because it causes low self-esteem.

    With all that said...Here's my feelings on this: Would have preferred Phil Jackson or Brian Shaw. Obviously, The Buss Family felt different. O.K. so welcome Mike D'Antoni. I hope he does well. I hope he delivers that 17th championship, But if he doesn't he will catch the same wrath that Mike Brown caught.

    Don't bother to answer me back because i'm through talking about who's positive and who's not!

    If you've taken a deep breath and you're still convinced that D'Antoni can't win a ring with the current Lakers roster, then it's time to read this:

    Everything you think you know about D'Antoni is cheap conventional wisdom pushed by the same media voices who thought Mike Brown just needed more time in LA.

    ... and I seem to recall many members of this forum praising the hiring of Mike Brown... where'd they all go? They are probably the same ones sucking off D'Antoni now.

    He will work if

    A) he does not play run and gun.

    Or

    B) We trade Artest and Pau who dont fit Run and Gun.

    In other words it appears it may not work????

    Who's going to want to take on Pau's $20 mil salary.... I just dont see other teams wanting to do that

    Artest isn't really attractive to other teams at the moment, but with pick n roll offense that is about to be implemented, and since Artest is the only guy willing to throw a good pick, he might be of some value to the Lakers

    Bring out the oxygen tanks for our old guys

    James Dolan probably has already called Mitch/Jimbaco 20 times in the last 4 hours bout Stou, and how much Nash and Pringles would like to get togheter with him.
