61-year old Mike D’Antoni was the Lakers’ third head coach in 2012-13 (Mike Brown and Bernie Bickerstaff), and he did a so-so job. He led the Lakers to a 40-32 (55.6%) record during the regular season despite having four sure fire Hall of Famers in his starting lineup. The Lakers got swept 4-0 in the playoffs, but I can’t blame that on D’Antoni as they were ravaged by injuries to their guards. D’Antoni is now 428-371 (53.6%) during the regular season in his first 11 years as an NBA head coach. He is also 26-33 (44.1%) as a head coach in the playoffs in his career so far. I don’t think that D’Antoni is the answer for the Lakers, but I don’t think they will want to pay another head coach in 2013-14 along with him and Mike Brown, so his job is probably safe for the 2013-14 season.
