ESPN- Mike D’Antoni has resigned as coach of the Los Angeles Lakers, the team announced Wednesday night. D’Antoni’s resignation ends the brief tenure of the Lakers’ third coach in less than three years. He took over from interim coach Bernie Bickerstaff early in the 2012-13 season and finishes 67-87 with the team. Mike Brown lasted just 71 games after replacing 11-time NBA champion Phil Jackson before the 2011-12 season. The Lakers and D’Antoni have been discussing his future with the team since the season ended, multiple sources told’s Ramona Shelburne. Last week he asked them to pick up the team option on the final year of his contract in order to empower him to coach without constant speculation about his job status.

Well I think it’s time for me to start watching Laker basketball again. After reading that you can think whatever you want, I’m not a bandwagon guy. I just really hate Mike D’Antoni. I hated him when he was a rival coaching the Suns, thought he was done after that but he just keeps getting jobs. He found the right place right time in Phoenix and I don’t think he will find another situation like that. Definitely not with a bunch of old Laker guys, picking and rolling isn’t really in the cards. I would give a left nut to see Phil come back but now that he is with the Knicks I think we can all write that out but who knows, crazier shit has happened. But this is the most important time for the team. The Clippers situation is a fucking wreck. LeBron will be a Free Agent next year (Kobe’s last). They have a top 10 pick in one of the best draft classes in a long time. Sign the right coach and bring in a great draft pick and the sky is the limit. Bron Bron flopping in Purple and Gold baby!

Take it easy Magic, you’re buying the god damn Clips
