Mike D’Antoni Interview: Coach Takes Comedic Approach To Questions


With the Los Angeles Lakers currently having lost nine of their last 10 games, the season is on the brink with hope for a playoff berth quickly disappearing.

Following the loss to the Houston Rockets, head coach Mike D’Antoni talked to the media at the Lakers practice facility on Thursday. Even though things clearly aren’t going well for the team right now, D’Antoni was in a joking mood. D’Antoni was asked about if he saw a light at the end of the tunnel this season and said the following via Lakers Nation reporter Serena Winters:

It didn’t end there as D’Antoni continued with his sarcastic and joking style of answering questions on Thursday:

As a result of the loss to the Rockets, the Lakers are now sitting at 14-22 on the season and 13th place in the Western Conference ahead of the Sacramento Kings and Utah Jazz.

It comes as no surprise that D’Antoni is going with this approach as it seems the Lakers are in tank mode at this point. Kobe Bryant, Steve Nash, Steve Blake and Jordan Farmar may be nearing a return to the floor, but the team can’t seem to get it together and will be in a huge hole once these veterans get back healthy.
