Lakers coaching search gets the Taiwanese animation treatment, and it’s spectacular (VIDEO)

Nov 17, 2012, 10:28 AM EDT

The Taiwanese animation studio NMA likes to have some fun at the expense of the NBA from time to time, so it’s no surprise the folks there took on the biggest story of the early 2012-13 season: the Lakers search for a new head coach.

L.A. definitely could have handled things better, from the timing of Brown’s firing to the way the organization led on Phil Jackson before making a quick change of plans and going with Mike D’Antoni instead.

The video isn’t exactly kind to Jim Buss, D’Antoni, or this aging Lakers team, and of course, you can’t have a spoof like this without having Metta World Peace getting into a fist fight with a fan in stands, I suppose.

But all in all, it is a funny (if sardonic) take on NBA life in Los Angeles.

    Ha Ha! This was brilliant! I like the Laker players all using walkers. Not to far from reality… :-)

    Sorry, their last couple of attempts at humor sucked so I didn’t bother watching this.

    Too funny! And totally accurate. I, like Magic, am still stunned, and in mourning. My faith is shaken, in the Lakers management, and their ability to do anything with this super team they have this year.
