The Lakers got a big win last night on the road against the Nets playing without Dwight Howard, Ron Artest, and Pau Gasol after he went down early with injury, but that didn’t stop head coach Mike D’Antoni from calling out a “rat” in the organization.
There were rumors going around that D’Antoni was not pleased with Dwight Howard sitting out Sunday’s game against the Pistons, and as reported by the LA Times he wanted to know who said it.
“You can go to some sniveling little rat, then, and ask them what I’m thinking and that’s fine,” D’Antoni said. “Somebody is going to you guys and saying things.”
So the question is are the reports that he thinks Dwight is a baby for not playing through injuries true?
“I said no 10 times. Oh God, no,” D’Antoni said. “You should all talk to me; you shouldn’t go to a rat.”
I don’t believe him. D’Antoni has been slim shaky on and off the court all year. Instead of worrying about a rat he needs to worry about getting the Lakers in playoff contention.
I wonder how the Buss family is feeling about their decision to shaft Phil Jackson now.

Los Angeles Lakers general manager Mitch Kupchak believes his center Dwight Howard is taking to many hard fouls. Kupchak filed a complaint with the NBA regarding hard fouls on Howard.
So, the Lakers enter tonight's game without Pau Gasol. Pretty sweet, right? Not quite.
Ever since Mike D'Antoni replaced Mike Brown as the coach of the purple and gold, Gasol has been on the outside looking in. In one of the most confusing and indefensible moves in recent memory, D'Antoni had the guy coming off the bench. He has, understandably, not been happy with his...

The 2012-13 season has been a disaster in many ways for the Los Angeles Lakers.
First off, and most prevalent, is their record of 23-26 which is awful by Lakers standards and is completely not indicative of how talented they actually are. Secondly, they traded for Dwight Howard AND Steve Nash...
