My rationalization hamster is convincing me that he said that in order to convince Dwight to come back and/or to keep PC as to not rub Jim/Lakers the wrong way so he can be offered a FO position. Am I losing it?
Well yeah, that's how I took it, a PC statement because he had no choice. He can't go on and bash 'Antoni even if he doesn't respect him or think he's a good coach in reality. It would create a big story in the media and it would get Laker fans hating on 'Antoni even more, it would be unnecessary drama and look bad, and yeah it would hurt Phil trying to stay involved with the Lakers.
