According to Lakers beat writer, Mike Bresnahan, the Lakers have hired Mike D'Antoni to be the their next head coach. I believe this will be better for Steve Nash and the offense but we all know D'Antoni doesn't focus on defense very much.
Both of these from @Mike_Bresnahan:
Tweet #1: Source: Mike D'Antoni will be the next coach of the Lakers. Not Phil Jackson.
Tweet #2: Mike D'Antoni signed a four-year deal with the Lakers. Phil Jackson was "asking for the moon," accoring to source familiar w/ the situation.From J.A. Adande:
Lakers won't have D'Antoni in place till later in the week; he's awaiting medical clearance post-knee surgery.
