He's trying to motivate. Unfortunately he's got no charisma. Does anyone think of him when they think of leaders in the NBA?

Okay, I hope I see a blow-out win against the Cavs then.
Hopefully Pau plays; don't think Blake or Howard will though.

You have to either trade Howard or Gausol. I'd keep Dwight, pair him with a great shooting PF to spread the floor.

When the LA crowd was chanting "We want Phil", I remember certain posters on here saying Mike D'Antoni would be a better fit than an old Phil Jackson who only wanted to coach home games. Until we make the right coaching decisions, assistant coaches included, we aren't making any waves. The Mike D'Antoni hire was almost as boneheaded as the Mike Brown hire. Sadly, the Lakers probably wont fire him until the offseason at the earliest. By that time Pau will be traded because he cant fit the system. I wish he was used properly.

Of course nobody wants to see them in the playoffs. Stern's gonna back them up to no end.

Best case scenario is for them to not make it at all.

D' Antoni knows tonight's starting lineup is the one that fits his philosophy best. Told my best friend weeks ago that they should make Earl Clark sTay after practice and make 200 threes each time. His length, activity and not needing anything run for him fit what Mike d is trying to accomplish. With consistent pt he will be an adequate shooter. Gasol should only play the five position which means limited minutes for him unfortunately.

Perhaps they were just running weird rotations to experiment and find their strengths? Seems unrealistic to just come in and dominate with a new coach and all new players. If they weren't trying out new players I highly doubt Sacre would have ever got two prime time starts. Now he kind of contributes off the bench. That is a decent way to motivate a player is put him through the grinder against an elite team. Had to have improved his game a little.

Woooohoooo D'Antoni's epic speech motivated the Lakers enough to rise to the occasion and defeat the mighty Cleveland Cavaliers. True titans of the Eastern conference

They just needed a couple weeks of training camp with Nash, NOW it's time to get serious

D'Antoni is a great coach. Whatever problems the Lakers had before the game - they weren't his fault.
