After acquiring Steve Nash and Dwight Howard, so high was the expectation that Los Angeles Lakers will do well this season. However, with a starting record of 1-4, disappointment sank in and a big change was soon immediately made to the team. And basically, that was at the expense of the head coach of the franchise.
Eager to get some wins, the team fired Mike Brown as head coach last November 9. However, the replacement was not the former team coach Phil Jackson, who most Lakers fans and players, including Kobe Bryant, were hoping for. Instead, the franchise hired Mike D’Antoni, an ex Suns and Knicks coach.
Reports have it that Lakers owners Jerry and Jim Buss and general manager Mitch Kupchak all agreed to hire D’Antoni instead of Phil Jackson. And as shared by a source, the team passed up on the 11-time NBA champion coach because of his expensive demands.
D’Antoni reportedly signed up a deal of three years for $12 million with the Lakers.
