Today is day one of the Lakers’ 2014 exit interviews, and one thing is clear: The guards love Mike D’Antoni (well, aside from Kobe Bryant who is now on vacation in France) and the bigs hate him.
OK, hate may be a bit of an extreme word – after all, nobody really has a bad word for D’Antoni as a person – though it’s obvious that his system doesn’t cater for the big guys...
DeAndre Jordan has really rounded his game into some shape this season.
Jordan just his grown man on with this powerful and-1 dunk off a Blake Griffin miss. Jordan and the Lakers just look so disinterested in playing at times.
Jordan Hill has been a victim of The Mike D’Antoni System this season.
When on the court, Hill has been productive – he recorded 18 points, 15 rebounds and 4 blocks in 29 minutes of play just last night against the Sacramento Kings – though he hasn’t received constant minutes from the head coach. The 26-year-old even went through an eight-game stretch last month where he...
Through all the missed defensive rotations, the absent rim protection and a missing source of energy, Jordan Hill sat on the bench without any chance to fill those needs.
Lakers coach Mike D’Antoni gave Chris Kaman and Pau Gasol a chance to start together in the team’s 124-112 loss Tuesday to the Portland Trail Blazers, but the sudden willingness of faith both exposed the tandem’s...
Jordan Hill went from being a player out of the rotation to being injured to being a starter all within a matter of days.
Welcome to the Mike D’Antoni system.
Seeing as the small ball approach wasn’t working, D’Antoni decided to go big and give Hill a chance to play alongside Pau Gasol after the 26-year-old big man registered 9 points, 14 rebounds and 4 blocks against the Washington...
With the trade deadline just hours away, the Los Angeles Lakers have upped their asking price for Jordan Hill, and rightly so.
The Brooklyn Nets emerged as an early favorite to land Hill, yet they don’t appear to be offering any additional assets aside from the salary cap relief that a Hill deal would give the Lakers.
ESPN’s Marc Stein reports that the Nets are still in the hunt...
Late Wednesday afternoon ESPN’s Marc Stein dropped a twitter NBA rumor involving the Cavaliers.
Hearing now that Cavs have strongly emerged as team trying to trump BKN and acquire Jordan Hill from Lakers. Looks like Cavs & Nets for Hill
— Marc Stein (@ESPNSteinLine) February 19, 2014
According to Stein, the Cavs are looking to acquire PF Jordan Hill from the Lakers. Hill...
It has to be a bad feeling to be part of trade rumors. It has to be an awful feeling to be part of rumors to be traded for a random exception to just free up cap space. Los Angeles, Brooklyn have discussed Jordan Hill deal into the Nets' Disabled Player Exception, league sources tell Yahoo. — Adrian Wojnarowski (@WojYahooNBA) February 17, 2014 Poor Jordan Hill.
While Los Angeles Lakers fans have been seeing some generally pedestrian, and at times, absolutely pathetic basketball the last several years, there are reasons for the Lakers, and their fans to be excited about their future. The funny thing is, more losing could be involved, which isn’t fun, but just might be necessary.
First of all, embattled head coach Mike D’Antoni...
In the midst of their first round matchup with the Nuggets, Lakers backup Jordan Hill is in trouble with the law for allegedly choking a family member earlier this year.
