Lakers News: Mitch Kupchak Says Mike D’Antoni Has ‘Done A Great Job’
[new_royalslider id=”138″]

The Lakers are currently sitting at the bottom of the NBA Western Conference standings with a 22-45 record. The team is set to potentially have their worst season in franchise history since moving to Los Angeles in 1960.

And recently, Lakers star Kobe Bryant stated his concerns about the uncertainty over keeping coach Mike D’Antoni for another season.

With all the unfortunate turn of events this season, Lakers GM Mitch Kupchak, spoke to with Mark Medina of the Los Angeles Daily News about coach D’Antoni’s job performance.

I don’t want to get into that with those kind of questions, he’s done a great job and dealt with a year last year when he was here part-time and a ridiculous amount of injuries this year.

Most Laker fans have been irate about D’Antoni and the team’s performance for the majority of the season. Due to injuries, D’Antoni has never been able to coach the team to it’s full potential. The Lakers front office has an understanding of the situation and are willing to see how it plays out for coach D’Antoni.

It still remains to be seen how D’Antoni will perform with a healthy roster in the 2014-15 NBA season. There’s no guarantee that D’Antoni will be back next season, but he’s also not been reprimanded yet either.
