Much has been made over the last week about the Lakers future, starting with Kobe Bryant’s comments during his press conference announcing he’s finished for the season and ending with Phil Jackson officially joining the Knicks. Both Bryant and Magic Johnson called for Jackson to be involved in the Lakers front office. With losses piling up, Mike D’Antoni’s seat is growing hotter.
