Los Angeles Lakers have had a truly terrible season and eventually it will have to end with the firing of coach Mike D’Antoni.
That's at least what the majority of media outlets across America think should happen when the Lakers finish their pathetic season, which has them 26-55 going into their final game of the season against San Antonio Spurs Thursday.
The one thing that is stopping the Lakers from firing their coach later rather than sooner is the fact that they owe him $4 million for next season.
It doesn't matter whether he is courtside for next year's campaign, that $4 million will still be his. This is why they have to make the right decision.
The Lakers are not in a rush to kick D’Antoni out the door as the team said they have no timetable on the potential decision.
General manager Mitch Kupchak told the Los Angeles Times, “I’m not going to discuss Mike other than to say there is no timetable for any type of decision. So there’s really nothing to share,” Kupchak admitted.
The Lakers seem to have a bit of a dilemma right now and it will be interesting to see what the decision will finally be in the coming months.
