Phil Jackson is Jesus

Kobe politickin with coach Phil Jackson
What’s woody, kinfolk?

Well oh well…the good ol Los Angeles Lakers done pushed the panic button by hiring Mike D'Antoni to run the ship after firing Mike Brown

I’m so glad the Lakers signed D’Antoni instead of suckin’ Phil Jackson’s dick six ways to Sunday…they acted like he's the only coach that’s capable of winning…snatching 11 championships is an amazing feat, but shit, other coaches are capable of winning the ‘ship as well

Quick comments before I jet outta here…

I never thought Mike Brown was good enough to coach the Lakers in the first place…he only won games with Cleveland because of LeBron,…he’s too one dimensional as a defensive minded coach

Coach Mike Brown
On the flip side, he didn’t have enough time to mesh the team together from the lockout shortened season to now…who uses his Princeton style offense anyway...LOL...but hey, LA is neck to neck with the Boston Celtics as the greatest brand in the NBA…you either win NOW or go home

Some circles might use the race card to point out the Lakers itchy triggers to fire Brown, but the truth is that Kobe has 3 good years left, Steve Nash is old, and Dwight Howard is a free agent after this year

They panicked and needed to do SOMETHING to salvage the season after losing the first 4 games…shit, Coach Brown is gettin' 14 million without having to coach for the Lakers anyway…if that’s racism, then I don’t wanna be Pro-Black…ha ha!...real talk

Mike Brown reminds me of Mr. Ed…always cheesin' and shit even when he’s not…but that’s neither here or there

I think D’Antoni is a good fit for the Lakers…Kobe reportedly idolizes D’Antoni from his playing days in Italy, and Nash is a run-and-gun type of player that’s familiar with D’Antoni’s offense…it’s perfect for pick-and-roll schemes whether it’s Nash/Pau Gasol or Nash/Dwight Howard

The Zen Master’s infamous Triangle Offense wouldn’t fit this roster…(the Zen Master is Phil’s nickname for you non-sports heads)…the system worked well in Chicago and LA because it freed up the point guards that were spot up shooters (BJ Armstrong, John Paxson, Steve Kerr, Derek Fisher) as well as dumping the ball to their front court whether it was Scottie Pippen, Shaq, Robert Horry, Horace Grant, Bill Cartwright or Luc Longley

Scottie Pippen soaring over the wack ass Indiana Pacers
The Triangle isn’t for the run-and-gun type of point guard like Nash…it’s a slower paced style of offense that focuses on movement and passing until someone gets open…the Triangle would’ve benefitted Gasol and Howard while canceling out Nash’s ability to run the floor like he’d done in Phoenix

Gary Payton clashed with Jackson after signing with the Lakers from Seattle in '03 because GP is not the spot up shooter type of point guard…he needs the ball in his hands to direct the offense…the Triangle takes away selfish basketball until Kobe decides to take over the game like number 23 had done before him…LOL

A system won’t run like an oily wheel without the players to complement that style

Miami, OKC and San Antonio were the best teams last season because they played the game in a faster place…Jim Buss, Lakers owner, dreams of re-living the Showtime Laker era of the 80s…what better way to flip dreams into reality by hiring a coach whose style mirrors the days of Magic, Kareem, and Worthy

So Laker fans…don’t get your panties in a bunch…D’Antoni is a better coach for this roster than Jackson…I don’t think PJ wanted to coach anyway…he just wanted more power within the organization according to the Laker side of the argument

And with that said, D’antoni BETTER win with this squad or forever find his name in the land of “he can’t win as a coach” where it’s hard for anyone to come back from

Aight ya’ll…I’m out
