    So they go from not knowing how to run a offense to a team not knowing how to run a defense. I wonder a if PNR will work with a team not used to running, although one of the key ingredients to the PNR is an athletic big.

    Regardless it was obviously the right choice since Phil doesn't care anymore since he said he wants to be able to skip selected road games lol.

    I can't see this being a good fit. The Lakers were already struggling on defense despite having Mike Brown now they add Dantoni. I also think an up tempo offense is exactly what the Lakers don't need. With their age and lack of depth I could see them falling apart.

    He was Kobe's choice from the very second Brown was fired. The rapist gets what he wants.

    He scores points and wins championships, he's allowed to rape people in America.

    I only say it was the right move choosing Pringles over Phil f the reports are true about Phil wanting to skip road games. I need my coach 100 percent fully committed.

    With that being said, it'll come down to Kobe's ego and if he'll cool with Pringles' "fire at will" style.
