I don't want there to be a shred of hope that anything 'Antoni is doing can be something to build on, I want his a** fired and nowhere to be seen next season.
That said it's still nice to see our players that into a game. Throwing down a bunch of awesome dunks for a change, all excited on the bench, having something to celebrate.
I was worried about this too.
The only way he gets fired IMO is if he legitimately looses the locker room. Otherwise you have to look at the message being sent to potential coaches. We've fired everyone not named Phil Jackson for the last 15 years. That's a HUGE RED FLAG for a potential coach of this team.
MDA needs to be gone but the FO needs an objective reason (i.e. losing the locker room)to fire him. Not that his "style" doesn't work, or that fans don't like him. If you were a coach without a job and you saw that the Lakers fired EVERY SINGLE PERSON not named Phil over the last 15 years, wouldn't you be worried?
MDA is not going to be fired in the off-season whether we like it or not unless what you said happens. I agree. WIth Mitch alreayd saying MDA has done a great job and with 1 more year left on his contract I can't see anyway that Mitch fires D'Antoni.
