The Former Mike D'Antoni-Coached Player Each LA Laker Should Emulate
Christopher Hanewinckel-US PRESSWIRE

Mike D'Antoni is about to bring a fast-paced, team-oriented offense to the Lakers, and it's going to shake things up. Here is a team that has been used to Kobe Bryant shouldering the load for years, but that philosophy is out of the window now.

That said, some Lakers players are going to be in for a rude awakening once D'Antoni instills his system.

However, this potential disaster is one that can be avoided completely if the players D'Antoni plans to use the most simply watch some tape. There is surely seven-plus years' worth of footage available for players to watch just so that they can familiarize themselves with how their position works. This way, they don't have to make so many sudden adjustments and have a better idea going in of what they should and shouldn't do.

By each man looking at just one particular player D'Antoni once coached and doing their best to play like them, the Lakers could easily turn into the beasts of the Western Conference.
