Could Kevin Ollie or Kurt Rambis be the next head coach of the Lakers?

Just like the Undertaker, Mike D’Antoni is a dead man walking (sorry, I couldn’t resist a reference to last night’s Wrestlemania.)

Mike D’Antoni explains why he hired Kurt Rambis, jokes about “We want Phil!” chants

Kurt Rambis not optimistic about Lakers’ offense

Anybody who has ever watched a Mike D’Antoni coached team in decent dosages knows one thing for certain. Mike loves to run. D’Antoni is a master of spreading the floor with shooters, while his point guard pushes the envelope. This approach did not work last season with D’Antoni’s personnel in Los Angeles, and newly appointed assistant coach, and former Laker, Kurt Rambis...
