How much credit does Coach Mike D'Antoni deserve for Lakers'

Hey all,

How much credit does Coach Mike D'Antoni deserve for Lakers' surge?
It’s not an easy question to answer – the team did play very well to close the season despite a ridiculous number of injuries. A look at some of the “better” teams that happened to have healthy players:

Preview: Lakers at Spurs
I have Spurs in 7 but should be a competitive series

Zero. Zip. Nada.

The Lakers surged into the playoffs in spite of D'Antoni.

They started winning when D'Antoni finally realized the current roster wasn't constructed for "seven seconds or less."
