There's a reason why Mike Brown isn't coaching the Los Angeles Lakers anymore and Mike D'Antoni is.
In fact, there are plenty of reasons. And D'Antoni would be wise to make note of them, as the Lakers fanbase was chanting Phil Jackson's name, not his, after Brown got fired.
Luckily for D'Antoni, though, Los Angeles is already thriving within his newly implemented offense, so he's already bolstering his reputation in Tinseltown.
That said, such success will prove to be but a fleeting safe haven if the new head coach fails to make the necessary rotational and in-game decisions moving forward, especially as his roster reaches full-strength.
And if the Lakers success under their newly instated coach is short-lived, you can bet Jackson's entire Montana estate that D'Antoni's tenure in Los Angeles will be short-lived as well.
To the point where Brown's stint in Los Angeles will have seemed like an extended stay.
