    Dwight Hates D'Antoni

    Probably already been posted somewhere...

    http://espn.go.com/los-angeles/nba/s...ike-dantoni-gm

    Howard was one of several Lakers -- Kobe Bryant and Pau Gasol being the most noteworthy -- to have an extended separate meeting with the GM after his exit interview with both Kupchak and D'Antoni, multiple sources confirmed to ESPNLosAngeles.com.

    According to sources with knowledge of the situation, part of the discussion between Howard and Kupchak centered around Howard's frustration with D'Antoni -- particularly how the center felt marginalized as the coach looked to Bryant and Steve Nash for leadership and suggestions and discounted Howard's voice.

    D'Antoni chose not to retain assistant coach Chuck Person, a Howard confidant, on his staff for next season. Also, Lakers assistant coach Steve Clifford, who was with Howard in Orlando for five seasons before both of them came to L.A. last year, has become a hot head coaching candidate, interviewing with Milwaukee and receiving interest from Charlotte.

    One source described the potential departure of Clifford, coupled with the loss of Person as "removing the buffers," between Howard and D'Antoni, "which is a bad thing."

    Not really a surprise. Kobe and Pau have had beef with him too.

    well, to be fair, Howard doesn't seem like much of a leader

    Hell, even if Dwight bolts for another team I'd be thankful if he got D'antoni fired on his way out.
    "'Half of the people can be part right all of the time. Some of the people can be all right part of the time. But all of the people can't be all right all of the time.' I think Abraham Lincoln said that."

    Bring back jerry west. What a mistake to let him go. He would have had dwight signed already. His fingerprints have been all over our championship runs. Even not with the organization when we got Pau from him with Memphis. He is as smart a basketball mind as you will ever find. Look at the warriors. No coincidence he's a part of their organization and they are doing well.

    I think the only way to keep Dwight is if Mike D leaves. Sadly, I don't think Mitch or Jim will do it. Seems like he'll walk if the coach stays

    We all want dantoni fired but we all know it will not happen this offseason.

    Dwight, stay or leave already.

    Agreed. He needs to figure **** out. Let us move on either way. I have a feeling he's going to drag this out, which is only going to destroy his image even more.

    And if he takes a long time, that doesn't help us in our offseason endeavors. Our roster moves rest on Dwight's confused shoulders

    Handle, you will like this wonderful statement from Mitch...

    "I think he's fine with Mike D'Antoni, but I'm not really concerned if players like a coach, so I don't ask that question. Our coaches are evaluated by wins and losses."

    It's looking to me like the Lakers FO really don't give a **** if Dwight walks.

    Can't say I don't blame him...Guy sucks as a coach and a person. But Howard isn't much better so I wish they would both go somewhere else.

    Ditto, read the headline and was thinking, "****, I hate em both"
