5 Immediate Changes Mike D'Antoni Can Make To Fix the Lakers

After courting Phil Jackson over the weekend in the wake of Mike Brown's firing, the Los Angeles Lakers have instead opted for offensive mastermind Mike D'Antoni as their next head coach.

D'Antoni has previously coached the Denver Nuggets, Phoenix Suns and New York Knicks, accumulating a career record of 388-339 behind his signature run-and-gun game.

Needless to say, with Brown's slow-paced Princeton offense out, some major changes are coming in La-La Land. The game is about to get a lot faster, and players who started the season slowly will once again flourish with D'Antoni at the helm.

In the blink of an eye, the Lakers are going to look nothing like a squad that started the season 1-4.

Of course, there will be a natural adjustment period before these changes become clear. But given how Lakers fans will expect results from the get-go, there are some tweaks that D'Antoni will have to employ from the moment he steps onto the sidelines.
