The Los Angeles Lakers, in a surprising move, announced Monday morning that they have signed former Phoenix Suns and New York Knicks coach Mike D'Antoni to replace Mike Brown as head coach.

I don't think he's the answer

I'm just surprised they actually passed on Phil Jackson for him. I bet Phil probably wanted a mint for his services.

Nash doesn't have the legs he used to have in Phoenix . . . we'll see if that's gonna work.

Definitely didn't see this coming. I thought they were going to go with Phil.

Phil's contract demands were hilarious (assuming they are real).

yeah he basically wanted the option to not travel for road games (which was negotiable) but he wanted to get the same type of power Pat Riley got from the Heat, meaning the Lakers would have to get rid of Mitch Kupchak
