The New Coach

Mike D'AntoniLakers new coach: Mike D'Antoni
Once again the Lakers front office surprised everybody with their coach selection. They offered the job to Phil Jackson, everybody's candidate and the best coach in NBA history, but Jackson asked for a couple of days to make up his mind and it became the perfect excuse for them to go for the coach they really wanted: Mike D'Antoni. The next day they signed D'Antoni to a three-year deal for $12 million. The team holds an option for a fourth year.

The only question that arise with D'Antoni's arrival is: will this be the new Showtime era or will this running offense just worn down Nash, Kobe, Metta and Pau? One thing is sure, it will be entertaining and Kobe will shoot the lights out.
