How soon we forget - Laker's fans wanted Phil gone after they got demolished by Dallas. Our defense was TERRIBLE, and we made JJ Barea look like Chris Paul.
Putting this on D'Antoni is stupid. Kobe has played with Phil long enough and he is outspoken enough where he would have worked what he learned from Phil into the defense by now. If you think Phil has the magic key that would instantly turn this into a championship team - you are mistaken. The problem is they are slow, lack attention to detail, and give up easy buckets that add up over the course of the game.
What I find even funnier is Lakers fans putting this on Buss. He made almost every move we wanted him to make (except getting Beasley, which I KNOW FOR SURE at least SEVERAL people in this topic wanted Beasley, but none of them will admit it now).
I'm a Lakers fan...BUT:
1) No I don't think Kobe > MJ
2) No I don't think LeBron sucks.
3) No I don't think it's funny to continuously make jokes about Charles Osborne.
