who really thought this was going to work knowing the coach is straight offense and no defense. actually he obviously could not even coach both. I think there were politics involved with not hiring Phil Jackson.
The Lakers lost again on the road to the Memphis Grizzlies 106-93. A lot can be said by that score. The style that head coach Mike D’Antoni wants to play is this up tempo free flowing style that does not put a ton of emphasis on defense, which in theory would mean that the Lakers would be winning a lot of games in the 110 to the 115 point range. That has not been the case. Since the start of the year the Lakers have played 12 games and have been over the 105 points 4 times and their record was 2-10.
I would be the 1st to say,” I was wrong!” Wrong in thinking that D’Antoni that could work with the roster he has inherited. I thought that it was not worth it to sign Phil Jackson for maybe 2 year run and the amount of money it…
