Well it’s no secret if you’re a Laker fan how frustrating it is to watch your beloved team struggle so much. After Kobe’s injury, many blamed Laker coach Mike D’Antoni for allowing Kobe to play so many minutes at his age. The frustration continued this season when the Laker’s didn’t even make the playoffs. What will happen with the Lakers next season? Well one thing is for sure, Mike D’Antoni won’t be there to find out.
“Given the circumstances, I don’t know that anybody could have done a better job than Mike did the past two seasons,” Mitch Kupchak said in a statement. “On behalf of the Lakers, we thank Mike for the work ethic, professionalism and positive attitude that he brought to the team every day. We wish him the best of luck.”
PS. WE WANT PHIL BACK!
