Lakers News: Mike D’Antoni Praises Chris Kaman After Performance

Chris Kaman and Mike D’Antoni haven’t been on the same page for much of this season. Kaman has voiced his displeasure with D’Antoni on a number of occasions, mainly due to his fluctuating position in the rotation.

Kaman had arguably his best game of the season tonight, pouring in 28 points, 17 rebounds, and six assists in the Lakers 115-99 upset of the Phoenix Suns.

After his excellent performance, Kaman was subject to praise from coach D’Antoni, as reported by the Lakers:

Kaman is deserving of all of the praise he receives after this performance. Despite going weeks without ever seeing the floor, Kaman always rises to the occasion when he gets his chance to make an impact.

Everyone was ready to see what Kaman himself had to say about his game, but according to Lakers Nation reporter Serena Winters, he slipped out before anyone could talk to him:

Even without saying a word, Kaman has done more than enough tonight and can afford to rest on his laurels for the night.

Kaman has shown that he is a true veteran this season, staying ready at all times despite never knowing if he will see the floor.

He has not been happy this season, but he continues to stay ready when his number is called. There is no doubt D’Antoni recognizes this, and that is why he praised him tonight.
