Phil Jackson explains why Mike D’Antoni was hired as Lakers coach – Jay Leno – VIDEO

Phil Jackson sat down with Jay Leno on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno to discuss the Los Angeles Lakers. Mitch Kupchak chose Mike D’Antoni over Phil Jackson because “he [was] the best coach for these group of guys”.

Absolutely NOT! Mitch Kupchak missed out big time. 🙁 Watch the video here:


I’m still LIVID over Kupchak hiring Mike D’Antoni over Phil Jackson. That decision was complete bogus. Logically and statistically speaking, Phil Jackson is the much preferred choice by a clear mile.

Phil has 11 coaching rings, and 2 player rings. And he is, of course, the winningest coach in NBA history with well over a 70% overall winning percentage.

I wonder what could have been with the 2012-2013 Lakers Roster. Kobe Bryant and Dwight Howard could have been the next 1-2 punch; just like how Kobe and Shaquille O’Neal were back in the day. Phil — without a doubt — knows how to bring the best out of his athletes.

Lastly, I really do miss the Triangle System. I really do. I also miss some good ol’ fashioned defense as D’Antoni’s coaching methods don’t translate well here in Los Angeles.

Heck, I even prefer former head coach Mike Brown over D’Antoni.
