Mike D’Antoni was never able to get over the hump with the Phoenix Suns. He had a few teams that looked like they could win a championship, but his offensive mindset never translated to a title. When he left Phoenix for the bright lights of New York, with the talent the Knicks had, it looked like D’Antoni might have the chance to be successful there. But things were much worse in the Big Apple. The Knicks could never really comprehend the system and it was clear that D’Antoni missed Steve Nash, the guy who had run his offense successfully for years. He left the Knicks on bad terms and a couple years later, he is admitting that it was a bad decision. I shouldn't have gone to New York," he said. “I should have stuck in there and battled. You don't get to coach somebody like him [Nash] too many times. It's pretty sacred and you need to take care of it. I didn't… I initiated it and I probably shouldn't have. It is not all that shocking that D’Anton...

Nash expects to be out until at least next week

Lakers guard Steve Nash will be sidelined until at least next week, still unable to run without pain in his lower left leg, he said Tuesday. Nash took part in some agility drills Monday and tried to do some jogging but couldn't complete it symptom-free. He will probably undergo an MRI exam to get a fresh update on the small fracture in his lower left leg. Nash said he would...

Phoenix Suns Offer “Fun” Guarantee

With Steve Nash out of town, the Suns could use an attendance boost.credit: edwardandsons.com After losing Steve Nash this offseason, the Phoenix Suns must have figured that they would have to take a step back this season. They made some nice moves in the offseason, adding players like Goran Dragic, Luis Scola, and Michael Beasley, but nobody really expects much of them. At 7-9,...

Steve Nash Says Fracture Is In “Tricky Area” That’s “Complicating Healing Process”

Steve Nash, who is listed as out indefinitely, was asked by Doris Burke if the reports indicating he could be back to the Lakers by next week held any truth.  Nash was not shy on describing his non-displaced fracture in his leg calling it “tricky”, “complicated”, “frustrating” and”wishful thinking” in regards to the notion that he could be back within a week or...

State of Lakers: Still stumped

LOS ANGELES Our record is 7-8 right now, said Laker forward Metta World Peace. That means right now were a 7-8 team. Leave it to MWP to say what most of us are thinking. Fact is, they are a game under .500, and most of the time this season they have absolutely played down to their record. Sometimes, even lower, like the rancid offensive performance against Indiana last Tuesday...

Nash To Miss At Least Two More Games, Seven For Blake

The Lakers are thin at point guard with Steve Nash and Steve Blake injured.

Dwight Howard loses contest to Kings mascot

Los Angeles Lakers center was challenged by Los Angeles Kings mascot "Bailey" to a free throw and three-point shooting contest. Bailey won both challenges. "Sometimes you have to lose to win," joked Howard afterwards. Howard's free throw average this season is 47.8 percent while his three-point average is 0.00 percent as it should be.  

Buy Big, Sell Small

It’s been the Kobe Bryant show over in LA and will remain that way until Steve Nash comes back.  This is an extremely small sample size but Pau Gasol arguably had his best game this year when Nash was handling the ball (the first game of the year!).  He had 19 shots that first game and has only topped 15 shots twice since then.  Is Pau getting old? Obviously, but I don’t think...

Suns offer “good game, or money back” guarantee

The Phoenix Suns are officially running one of the most intriguing promotions ever, promising a money back guarantee to fans who don't enjoy the experience.  The promotion is due to take place Thursday December 6th against the visiting Dallas Mavericks.  The Suns are guaranteeing the always subjective "good time" to their fans, allowing them to mail in a ticket stub...

Guarded Feelings

Now that the rust is coming off the season (except for you Steve Nash), we’ll be splitting the Wednesday posts into morning (for recaps) and afternoon (for the tiers).  Check out the previous Centers, Forwards, and Guards tiers.  This week we’ll jump right into the guards. There’s been some movement on the PG front mainly because I had to move Kyrie Irving down due to his...

Preview: Nuggets vs. Lakers

It hasn't been the most pleasant 2-day break for the Lakers (7-8) after falling back to sub .500 last Tuesday thanks to their most lackluster performance of the season against Indiana. There were plenty of reasons as to why and how the purple and gold lost that game, but it's obvious the Lakers can't establish their identity without having everybody back, especially...
