Video: Lakers Coach Mike D’Antoni Press Conference Highlights

Here’s our favorite quotes from the Mike D’Antoni press conference. After admitting being “medicated” in the first few minutes, plenty of unforgettable quotes ensued on day one of his coaching career. Make sure to check out our press conference video highlights below.

On hating the Lakers:

“Like everything else, I hated you guys forever….I lived and died with you guys for the Boston series. You kidding me? As soon as Mitch gave me the word, I love you guys…And I can’t be bought!”

On how it all went down:

“To be honest with you, I had no internet. I had no TV. I hadn’t watched them play this year hardly. I maybe watched one game. And then there was some rumbling. I’m on my back listening to Motown…all day. [Thinking] This is great, my future looks bright. It just happened. It happened so quick I didn’t think about it. I was heavily medicated too. This stuff doesn’t count cause I’m on medication right now.”
