Longtime Laker Fan Flea Calls For Mike D’Antoni To Be Fired

FleaThe Los Angeles Lakers have a long list of famous fans from Jack Nicholson to Dyan Cannon to David Beckham, but one famous fan stands out amongst the rest in terms of expressing his opinions publicly.

Red Hot Cilli Peppers bassist Flea is finally fed up of head coach Mike D’Antoni. After the being destroyed by the division rival Phoenix Suns by 27 points and one day before taking on arguably the best team in the league in the Miami Heat, Flea let it be known that he wants D’Antoni fired via Twitter:


With the Lakers sitting at 13-15 heading into the Christmas Day showdown with LeBron James and company, the storied franchise is currently in 10th place in the Western Conference. The Denver Nuggets (14-13) and Golden State Warriors (16-13) stand in the team’s way of making the playoffs at this point in time and that may continue to be the case for the rest of the way.

The Lakers haven’t missed the playoffs since 2005 and have only been on the outside looking in on the postseason five times in franchise history. Obviously, with a tradition of being a perennial playoff contender, avid fans like Flea aren’t happy and want to see something done immediately.

Unfortunately for Flea, and fans that have been calling for D’Antoni’s firing since last season, the team has made any indication that they’re considering making a change. The Lakers’ front office has stuck by D’Antoni and will likely continue to moving forward.
