[new_royalslider id=”127″]

In a shocking turn of events, Mike D’Antoni decided to resign as Lakers head coach after the team refused to pick up his fourth year option.

While D’Antoni was not popular amongst many Lakers fans, there were a lot of players who enjoyed playing for him.

One of those was Jordan Farmar who enjoyed a career year this season under D’Antoni. Despite that, Farmar told the LA Daily News’ Mark Medina that he still wants to return to Los Angeles next year:

After going overseas for a year, Farmar returned to the Lakers and posted his second-highest scoring average of his career, while also posting career highs in rebounds and assists despite being hobbled by injuries.

Farmar was one of a number of players who enjoyed excellent seasons under D’Antoni despite the team failing to maintain success when it came to victories. He has expressed numerous times his desire to return to Los Angeles.

Farmar also expressed his disappointment in the resignation to Medina, and supported D’Antoni despite him leaving:

Even though many questioned if D’Antoni had lost this Lakers team during the season, there were always a number of players who supported him, throughout all of the losses.

Farmar’s words in the midst of D’Antoni’s resignation is just another example of that.
