Mike D’Antoni has one year remaining on his contract with the Lakers, so the decision of whether or not to return isn’t his to make.

What a strange source for a strange story

Somewhere, Kobe Bryant is shaking his head.
Apr 1, 2014, 2:58 PM EDT
Remember when Mike D’Antoni just played small and forced you to adjust to him? He doesn’t have the horses for that in Los Angeles so he will go big against Portland with Pau Gasol retuning and starting next to Chris Kaman.

When the Los Angeles Lakers flew to Milwaukee for Thursday’s game against the Bucks, Chris Kaman remained behind for personal reasons before getting on a commercial plane. Chris Kaman (personal issue) still hasn't caught up to the team yet. Supposed to land in MKE any minute now. A true game-time decision.— Mike Bresnahan (@Mike_Bresnahan) March…

Knicks fans, you should not watch this. That is all the Lakers’ buckets from their third quarter, 51-point explosion on the Knicks Tuesday night. What the Lakers did to blow out the Knicks was hustle and share the ball. Nothing more. This is the NBA, give guys an open shot and they will knock it…

Kobe Bryant doesn’t seem to get along with Lakers coach Mike D’Antoni, though that’s a message sent through anonymous sources. Want a Lakers veteran willing to go on the record about his issues with D’Antoni? Look no further than Chris Kaman. Mark Medina of the Los Angeles Daily News: Chris Kaman said he hasn't talked…

It’s the one day on the NBA calendar you know is going to be like a roller coaster — rumors are going to fly, deals are going to appear close then fall apart, complete fabrications will fascinate a fan base who will then blame a GM for not making them reality, and in the end…

Jordan Hill has slipped down Mike D’Antoni’s Lakers’ rotations behind even Chris Kaman because… actually I don’t have a good reason for you. Hill is not skilled offensive player, but what he brings is energy and the Lakers could often use that. D’Antoni’s Lakers rotations have been interesting this season. We’ll go with interesting. The…

Kobe Bryant, if you haven’t been paying attention, tends to take basketball somewhat seriously. For years, the Lakers have cast off players who couldn’t near Kobe’s level of competitiveness and focus. (Nobody can match it.) But forced to fill out the roster with low-paid players during a transitional season, the Lakers couldn’t be as choosy…

The Lakers were already shorthanded heading into Wednesday’s contest against the Cavaliers, but by the time it was over, they didn’t have a combination of qualified and healthy players to even field a five-man team. L.A. led by as many as 29 points before holding on for the 119-108 victory, but things were a bit…

All-Star selections have become the de facto measure of good seasons, even though they’re really only the measure of good half seasons and rely on a gerrymandered system that splits players by conference. But All-NBA teams – which evaluate a full year and aren’t split by conference – are a better metric for good seasons. In the last…

LOS ANGELES — “They have to be shooting a movie or something.” That was Vince Carter’s first thought. Five years ago yesterday, the morning of Jan. 15, 2009, Carter woke up in the bedroom of his home in Edgewater New Jersey, and was lazily sitting on his bed just looking out the window of his…

Pau Gasol will miss his second straight game on Sunday while still battling an upper respiratory infection, Lakers head coach Mike D’Antoni told reporters at shootaround. Gasol will miss three games in total with the ailment, which kept him out of L.A.’s loss to the Warriors eight days ago. He tried to play through it…

Even with Kobe Bryant, the playoffs were a long shot for the Lakers this season — their defense was slipping, and their offense was not going to carry them far enough in a deep Western Conference. Kobe Bryant’s injury — out six weeks now with a fracture of tibial plateau in in his left knee…
