Mike D’Antoni and the expectations game
Ironically, it was Phil Jackson who may have best summed up Mike D™Antoni™s first period as head coach of the La Lakers. œMike hasn™t had a possibility in L. A., he really hasn™t, ” Jackson said back in May while appearing as a visitor on œThe Tonight Show with Jay Leno, ” after audience members booed the mention of D’Antoni’s name. And that was before Dwight Howard left for Houston, which makes it clear on his way out the door which he would have preferred Jackson over D™Antoni as the Lakers’ head coach.
