Quote of the Day: This Lakers’ season almost driving D’Antoni to drink

Jan 10, 2014, 7:24 PM EDT

Hard to blame Mike D’Antoni if this season hasn’t been a fiesta on Figueroa coaching the Lakers this season — it was going to be a tough season anyway, everything needed to go right for them just to make the postseason. And everything has not gone right. Not even close. They still are without Kobe Bryant and Steve Nash, but hope to get them back at the end of the month.

If this season was almost driving D’Antoni to drink (even jokingly), imagine what it would have done to Don Nelson.

Thanks to Bill Oram of the Orange County Register for the quote.
