    D'antoni is going to be fired or bought out

    I saw this last night and wondered has anyone else heard this.  It is unprecedented to sign two coaches to long term contracts and fire both before the All Star break.

    I think you read it wrong-I saw the exact opposite.

    VERY HIGHLY unlikely that he will be fired and/or bought out.  They can't afford it and the last thing they need is for Nash to lose his desire to play or request a trade as a result.   

    The Lakers will try to change players that fit into D'Antoni's system.  Its no secret that Gasol will be moved.   Howard, however, has been a bothersome enigma for them that they need to keep him happy, healthy and productive .  The Lakers, more than any other team, have always been committed to the belief that quality centers win Championships.  

    In addition to the dysfunction betwen players and D'Antoni's sysem, I believe their failure has been primarily due to bad team chemistry and resulting lack of mental resolve and commitment.  Sort of like what the Celtics are dealing with right now...

    I saw it on a chyron on comcast sport last night.  I did not misread it.  I asked because as you both pointed out it makes no sense.

    Despite all the struggles in LA the messy Lakers are sticking with Mike D'Antoni and Dwight Howard

    They should...not doing so would show they are inept.
