From his days as a small-time gameshow and radio host to American Idol, Ryan Seacrest has seen it all in the world of entertainment. However, despite Seacrest’s prolific career in Los Angeles, sports was probably one area that he hadn’t engaged in so much. That makes it all the more surprising that new Lakers coach Mike D’Antoni‘s first interview with an L.A. outlet was with Seacrest and KIIS-FM. For the record, Seacrest seems to handle the interview pretty well. Even if he’s not capable of asking a complicated question about Steve Nash‘s role in the offense and playing off the ball, most of his queries were sufficiently better than his opening gambit of “Did you do anything over the weekend?” Among the points touched on during the interview were the pressure that D’Antoni feels, his recent knee replacement surgery and knowing Kobe Bryant as a 12-year-old — credit Seacrest for asking that question. Listen to the entire interview in the video below. Seacrest out.

Suffice to say Stanton wouldn’t be in such a dapper mood 24 hours later. Photo via Instagram/Giancarlo818 QUOTE OF THE NIGHT “I’m going to do everything I can do to win a championship. If we’re not at least in the hunt, a serious hunt, then I’ve failed as a head coach. I’m comfortable with that.” –New Lakers head coach Mike D’Antoni saying obvious things TWEET OF THE NIGHT One thing we can all agree on: Jeffrey Loria is undoubtedly a villain. My favorite James Bond villain is Jeffrey Loria… — Eric Stangel (@EricStangel) November 14, 2012 VIDEO OF THE NIGHT We know Rasheed Wallace has been out of the game a while, but does he really need to resort to begging to get a new sponsor? Or does he just really want free insurance?
