Mike D’Antoni, Lakers Looking Forward to Proving Doubters Wrong

Mike D'Antoni 9The Los Angeles Lakers entered the 2013-14 season with low expectations as many people predicted them to be a lottery-bound team. However, with the recent injury news regarding Kobe Bryant, there are even more doubts about this roster.

With Bryant sidelined for about six weeks the Lakers will have their hands full trying to stay competitive in the Western Conference. The conference is already very tough and Los Angeles has a small margin of error heading forward.

Coach Mike D’Antoni spoke to the Los Angeles Times and said the team is looking forward to proving the doubters wrong.

“I think they’re excited about disproving people like they did the first time, and we’ll do it again,” Coach Mike D’Antoni said Friday.

The Lakers are in action tonight against the Minnesota Timberwolves and fans will get a first look at point guard Kendall Marshall. The Lakers signed Marshall shortly after the Bryant news was released and the front office is hoping the guard can help fill the void as the team faces injuries.

Los Angeles is already without Jordan Farmar, Steve Blake and Steve Nash, and as a result Bryant had to be the main playmaker when he was healthy. Xavier Henry is now expected to take Bryant’s role and hopefully Marshall can help him in running the offense.
