Steve Nash Talks About His Friend, Mike D’Antoni

Nash is super excited to have Coach D’Antoni on his squad again. He took some questions from reporters about the acquisition and had the following to say on the topic: “I never would’ve predicted him being here as we get a chance to work together again, especially here with this team.

Mike D'Antoni Steve Nash reunion will be good for Lakers

Will Nash-D'Antoni reunion unleash Lakers' full potential?

Does the Mike D’Antoni hire make sense for the Lakers?

I really have no idea. The entire situation in LA is pretty stunning. I’m not surprised they got rid of Mike Brown, as his pathetic offense seemed like a poor fit for a team Steve Nash. Nash flourished under Mike D’Antoni, but he was younger at the time and they never won anything. Meanwhile the Lakers decided not to bring back the best coach in NBA history – Phil Jackson....

NBA Trade Rumors: Lakers Shopping Steve Blake, Chris Duhon

The Los Angeles Lakers are suddenly in need of as many point guards as they can find, yet they are reportedly interested in trading two of them.  When Steve Nash went down with a fractured leg, Steve Blake stepped in to replace him.  However, Blake has suffered a strained abdominal muscle and is day-to-day.  Chris Duhon is now second on the depth chart at point.  But that...

5 things to watch: Spurs vs. Lakers

The San Antonio Spurs (6-1) will take on the new-look Los Angeles Lakers (3-4) in Los Angeles who haven't gotten off to good start. Aside from adding Steve Nash and Dwight Howard to the mix, the Lakers went through a coaching change firing former Spurs assistant coach Mike Brown and added Mike D'Antoni. Needless to say, this Lakers team will need a bit more time to get some...

State of the Team: Change for the better?

LOS ANGELES -- "Brown is a good coach 314 regular-season wins don't lie. He actually has a full season this year to show it. Let him." I wrote that at the end of last week's "Three Thoughts"; I didn't know it was also going to be the end of Mike Brown. I still stand by what I wroteMike Brown is a good coach. He's just not the right coach for...

Kobe walking the fine line between embracing Mike D’Antoni and wanting another title run with Phil Jackson

New Lakers coach, Mike D’Antoni, held his first practice on Thursday a day after arriving in L.A.  Still on crutches due to a recent knee replacement surgery, D’Antoni was seen catching up with Steve Nash and sharing a laugh with Dwight Howard and Jordan Hill.  Of course the biggest issue was how D’Antoni would interact with Kobe [...]

Steve Blake Being Shopped Around

Mike D’Antoni’s new system needs some new players on the team to execute it. So all the “dead weight” needs to be cut in order to bring in some quality shooters for this rebooted offense. Steve Blake and Chris Duhon have been shopped around but there are no bites as of yet. Sucks for them, but such is the nature of the game. Expect quite a bit of shuffling in the coming weeks...

Taiwan Animation’s Take On Mike D’Antoni Is Pretty Perfect

I considered writing my normal wordy intro paragraph about how Taiwan Animation is the weirdest thing in the world, citing examples from the stories we’ve covered and wondering how two Taiwanese ladies with 3rd grade computer animation skills could get to the heart of a story better than a nation of aged sports reporters, but I’ll let this image do all that for me:Additional...
