Los Angeles Lakers head coach Mike D'Antoni got angry with a reporter during a postgame press conference after the team's 100-94 loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers, even going so far as to say "You're starting to p*** me off."
D'Antoni did not appreciate a question being asked by L.A. Times columnist T.J. Simers that seemed to imply that D'Antoni wasn't covering defense during the Lakers shootaround before the game, especially since Simers was not at the shootaround to observe firsthand.

Jay-Z watched Melo drop 45 on the Nets
The Lakers are 9-13 and look like trash on defense. We know the Lakers are currently without Pau Gasol and Steve Nash but is Nash really going to save the season? At a little over 20 games into the NBA season, almost a quarter of the way in, it might be time to hit the [...]
When the Los Angeles Lakers arrived in Cleveland, it was familiar ground to Antawn Jamison. The veteran forward returned to Cleveland for the first time since leaving as a free agent this past summer, but it wasn’t Quicken Loans Arena that gave him the chills — it was the bitter December Cleveland weather that smacked him in the face when he got off of the team plane.
NEW YORK -- Mike Woodson has enjoyed some solid victories in his brief stint as the head coach of the New York Knicks, but none quite as emotional and as exciting as Tuesday night's win in the Battle of the Boroughs. The Knicks team came from 17 points down to defeat their cross-river rival, the Brooklyn Nets, 100-97 at the Barclays Center. "What can I say about Jason...

Manhattan (aka New York) may have exacted some revenge. Or better...
Life is not all well and good in Lakerland. Reporters are asking tough questions about defense that the head coach can't answer because well, Mike D'Antoni has never been able to answer that question. Few knew this move would not work out because we see the real problems with the Lakers (defense) opposed to the fantasies by company men and fans who think the problems...
