The debut that no one saw coming is here.

New Los Angeles Lakers head coach Mike D'Antoni is reportedly going to make his sideline debut in Tinseltown. Like for real.

According to Howard Beck of the New York Times, the man with the mustache, Magic Mike himself, has stated that he will be coaching from the sidelines when the Lakers face off against the Brooklyn Nets

To be honest, though, the "when" surrounding D'Antoni's coming-out party was always irrelevant. What actually mattered is what transpired once he officially assumed Mike Brown's seat, the same seat that many had hoped would be Phil Jackson's once again.

But what happens during this one game that will speak volumes about the rest of his time in Los Angeles.
