When Mike D’Antoni took over the Los Angeles Lakers’ head coaching job, he couldn’t have imagined things would be this difficult. Losers of four of their last six contests, the Lakers continue to struggle on both ends of the floor. After a loss to the lowly Orlando Magic on Dec. 2, players and coaches were looking to one another for answers.
D’Antoni is an accomplished coach, and is definitely known for an innovative style. Although most of his inventiveness takes place on the court, he might try incorporating a modern idea into his strategy sessions in between games.
It’s a little crazy, but wouldn’t it be interesting if D’Antoni crowd-sourced his players in search of advice on how to snap the Lakers out of their funk?
Of the 15 bodies on the roster, surely somebody would have an idea that the coach hadn’t thought of. Who knows, maybe some of his players would even have suggestions that went beyond X’s and O’s.
As an imaginative exercise, let’s see what piece of advice every Los Angeles Laker would impart to Mike D’Antoni.
