Kobe Bryant on Mike D’Antoni Being Hired: “I Love Him”
Kobe doesn’t care who is coaching the Lakers, he just wants that 6th ring. If that meant firing 7 coaches in a season he would do it.
He and D’Antoni have a good relationship from working with each other in the Olympics.
Kobe isn’t Carmelo, so he isn’t going to fight the system. He also is a more diversified offensive player and can find points in a lot of different ways, so it will not be the same situation as it was in NYC.
