The guy many Lakers fans seem to want to blame for all the Lakers woes this year — head coach Mike D’Antoni — went on the Dan Patrick show this morning.

They talked about Lakers’ loss to the Spurs in Game 1 and what needs to change for them going through the rest of the series. His focus was limiting turnovers and knocking down shots — the Lakers need to hit better from the outside or the Spurs can continue to pack the paint and make things hard for Dwight Howard and Pau Gasol

Also, Patrick asks him how he felt about Kobe Bryant tweeting during the game. D’Antoni’s too smart to say anything negative about the 800 pound gorilla of the Lakers organization.
