Mike D’Antoni Hired as Lakers Head Coach

In the middle of the night for the majority of the country, news hit the twitterverse that the Los Angeles Lakers have chosen former Suns/Knicks head coach Mike D’Antoni to succeed Mike Brown. Brown was fired after an 0-4 start with a team that has championship aspirations. Rumors during the week were that Phil Jackson would retake his post with the franchise, but it seems as though he was asking for too much money, control, freedom, pretty much too much everything.

Questions have already been raised as to if the reunion between D’Antoni and Nash can jumpstart the Lakers offense into championship form. When they were together on the Suns, they ran one of the most potent offenses in the game and reached the Western Conference Finals.

This new team has much more talent than the Suns of old, and if they click, the Lakers will be very dangerous. Defense will be a question, but Dwight Howard as an anchor will be a huge relief for Mike D’Antoni.
