Mike D'Antoni Is Unsure Who To Start At Power Forward.

He told you Lakers Fan.

The question was raised that some Lakers fans were discouraged about the team’s start to the season and here is what D’Antoni had to say.

“Why would I be discouraged?” D’Antoni said. “We’re fighting with a bunch of good guys that played well before, and they’ll play [well] again. If [the fans] are discouraged, then, you know, find another team to root for. I’m all right. We’re not going to give up. Are you kidding me? Discouraged? That’s not even fair to these guys.”

“It’s like, ‘OK, we lost two road games,'” D’Antoni said. “We were 1-5 [on the road] at one time, right? It takes some adjusting. It takes some adjusting. We got to get somebody healthy. We’ll be back. We’re not going anywhere. We’re going to fight, and we’re going to try to stay above .500. We got a nice homestand coming up, and if anybody hangs their head, then they don’t need to be on our bandwagon. We’re going to fight, and we’re going to be fine.”

All things considered, I believe it is a minor miracle the Lakers are even close to .500 at this point, so I side with D’Antoni on this one.
