I'm not a fan of the hiring and I thought they should have brought Phil back, but to be honest, I'm not as pessimistic as most seem to be.

First, I think D'Antoni will do good things for the offense and I think his defensive deficiencies can be compensated. The Lakers have two former defensive player of the year (Artest and Howard) + a perenial all-NBA defensive team member (Kobe). Plus, they have two other guys with head coaching experience on the staff. If D'Antoni delegates the defense to them and works with the personnel he has on offense, it could work. Still not the best decision, but I think it COULD work.
