Antawn Jamison Reacts to Mike D’Antoni Hiring

The Los Angeles Lakers have named Mike D’Antoni their new head coach, someone who is known for his amazing offensive plays and schemes. Players have enjoyed playing for D’Antoni and he allows freedom on the offensive end of the court. With Steve Nash running the point, the Lakers will have one of the best pick-and-roll players in the league and someone who has shined under D’Antoni before.

The former Suns and Knicks head coach will adopt a very talented team in the Lakers and on his bench he will have long-time NBA veteran Antawn Jamison. Jamison has struggled so far in his Lakers career, but everyone is hoping D’Antoni and Nash can make things easier for him.

Jamison spoke to Marc Spears of Yahoo! Sports and and talked about what he is looking forward to with the new coaching staff.

 

There has been a lot of criticism directed toward D’Antoni’s defensive prowess and a lot of people are wondering if the Lakers can win a championship under D’Antoni. There is no question the Lakers will improve on the offensive end with D’Antoni, but at this point no one knows how dangerous the Lakers will be on defense.

D’Antoni is reportedly going after Nate McMillan and is hoping he can make McMillan an assistant coach to help on the defensive end.
