I’ve had enough time to evaluate D’Antoni and I’ve seen nothing that leads me to believe that anything with him will change. The word that keeps popping up when you read about D’Antoni is ‘stubborn’. His refusal to either tweak his system to fit the personnel or continuing to bench guys like Jamison or Meeks further proves the point that if you’re not willing to listen to those around you then you’re bound for failure. He’s given me no reason to believe that he will be here beyond this season. If you can’t find a way to make it work with four potential future Hall of Famers I’m not exactly sure if it’s possible to be successful again on this level. I understood why the Lakers chose to hire him instead of Phil Jackson. That doesn’t mean it hasn’t proven to be one of the most disastrous hiring in professional coaching history.
