We won't ever know what he'd be able to do with this team. You can bring up his track record, but the fact of the matter is that we have some glaring issues on this roster that have nothing to do with our offensive system, rotations, or defensive schemes. It's obvious that some of you are constantly (and unfairly) comparing what D'antoni's actually doing with this team with some imaginary hypothetical vision of this team that you had when you originally heard we might get Phil.
Seriously it's ridiculous. It's so easy to sit there and act like everything would have been perfect under Phil because of all the wonderful fantasies you draw up in your head because you don't have to worry about any of them ever being being proven wrong. And it's so easy to ridicule D'Antoni because of what has happened so far when the fact is so many of this team's problems go far beyond anything in his control.
Now seriously please stop talking about Phil in this thread. It's pathetic and really annoying. A couple of posters here don't seem to have anything better to do and can't seem to get over it.
Lakers fans are using every excuse they can to not admit the obvious : a flawed roster which lacks youth , athleticism and speed ...
With MDA as a coach : barely making the playoffs/1st round exit.
With Phil : MAYBE a 2nd round exit .... wow big deal .
This roster isn't championship material regardless of the coach ... I wish more posters would realize it
This is more about Philosophy than the names guys........
This is a flawed roster but why would you run full steam ahead towards your weaknesses?
Every team in the league is flawed one way or the other so I don't think your point flies there....... I personally don't want this team to follow the flavor of the week running teams..... it is better and works to your advantage too be different IF....IFFFFFFFFFF..... you have a good to great coach that can use it to his advantage.
good to great coaches play towards their strengths and reduces or masks their weaknesses.
average to Bonehead coaches just do what they do regardless of what their roster is.
Really, REALLY bad Front offices accumulate players with no sense of direction for the team than change their mind and philosophy if any hiccup or bump in the road comes along.......... what does that add up to for the Lakers? old as dirt roster trying to up[ the pace lmfao..............
