The Lakers eventually went with Mike D’Antoni and reportedly scorned Jackson by giving the impression that he would be hired. After that door closed, Jackson says that he will probably [...]

  • D'Antoni isn't going to cut it and Jackson being snubbed after initial talks dont really speak well for the Laker powers that be currently. The team is not communicating well on the court, Jackson could have done a much better job with that and a much sooner pace.

POTD 1/8/13: James Harden on Robert Sacre

I was sincerely pulling for Robert Sacre to have a good game in his first start in place of the injured Dwight Howard… mostly because I wanted the Lakers to win, because that just would’ve been funny.  Unfortunately, that’s not what happened.  Sacre did score 10 points, but, as the Lakers got blown out 125-112, he grabbed just three rebounds in 27 minutes and played Washington...
