    Lakers Sign Mike D'antoni To Be Their New Head Coach: But, Can He Handle Kobe?




    The Los Angeles Lakers have finally found the coach that will take over the head coaching job that was vacated by Mike Brown.

    Mike D'antoni, the coach that propelled the Phoenix Suns in the upper echelon of the Western Conference will be re-uniting with Steve Nash in Los Angeles.

    D'Antoni signed a 4-year deal w/ LAL. Jackson was "asking for the moon," according to source familiar w/ the situation.Mike D'Antoni will be the next coach of the Lakers. Not Phil Jackson, a source said.

    Here's one of the provisions indicated in Mike D'antoni's 4-year contract with the Lakers.

    "Three years are only guaranteed. 4th, a team option. No championship this year, Phil Jackson takes over next season."

    Mike helped the Suns reach greater heights in 2004 up to 2007. The Suns came to be known as one of the most prolific offensive teams in the NBA, using primarily the Run and Gun Offense.

    He will surely infuse that kind of offense once he takes over the head coaching job in Los Angeles.

    The only problem that I can see here is that, how will D'antoni handle Kobe Bryant? Kobe is a lot like Carmelo Anthony. D'antoni had a hard time coaching Melo in New York. That's why a coaching dilemma between Kobe and D'antoni can also happen in LA, but it's not inevitable.
