Former Los Angeles Lakers head coach Mike D'Antoni has finally spoken out on the Lakers terrible 2013/14 NBA campaign.

The Lakers managed to produce their worst record of the 21st century after 27-55 effort, and as a result Mike D'Antoni was sacked from the head coaching position.

Many were surprised that D'Antoni even lasted that long after some embarrassing performances. But D'Antoni is not to blame for all of the Lakers' problems last season, with the ex-LA coach revealing this week why he thinks the campaign was such a disaster.

"Biggest thing is – you want to have a certain style and be on the same page and we weren’t all on the same page," Mike D'Antoni told LakersNation. "Have to be on the same page from top of management down to the waterboy, especially in a tough place like L.A."

Despite D'Antoni's acrimonious exit from the Lakers, he still has positive words for star baller Kobe Bryant.

Wild rumors spread that Kobe Bryant and D'Antoni didn't get on, but the ex-Lakers coach praised him this week.

"Best – his ability to do the volume of work that he does, if it’s humanly possible to do he will do it, mindset and determination and work ethic. Will always try to be the best to ever play the game. That’s also the tough part of coaching him, he has a determination and near-sightedness. Sees one goal and will go over you, under you, whatever, to get to where he wants to go."
