“We’ve got an All-Star team. Have you ever watched an All-Star Game? It’s God-awful because everybody gets the ball, they go one-on-one and then they play no defense. That’s our team.”
—Lakers coach Mike D’Antoni after another embarrassing Lakers loss, this one to Memphis on Wednesday night. The quote comes from Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports.
Clever quote. The question of course really is what is D’Antoni going to do about it? What about the players? Because right now the answer looks like point fingers and sulk. Which doesn’t win a lot of games.
