Apr 24, 2013; San Antonio, TX, USA; Los Angeles Lakers head coach Mike D'Antoni speaks to the media after game two of the first round of the 2013 NBA Playoffs against the San Antonio Spurs at AT&T Center. The spurs won 102-91. Mandatory Credit: Soobum Im-USA TODAY SportsLakers fans, in case you missed it, Mark Willard and Mychal Thompson of ESPNLA 710 had the opportunity to interview Mike D'Antoni on Tuesday, and he said very D'Antoni-type things. 

Which were not encouraging to Lakers fans. 

Like when he's asked how the team will do next year, and he says that they'll be better than people think. That's a losing attitude if I ever heard one. No mention of a championship was made, and yeah, it's a long shot, but it would be nice to hear that the coach has faith.

Also, no surprise, he's once again counting on Steve Nash to be the guy who saves the day.

The good thing was that he spoke fairly highly of Pau Gasol, minus a really telling pause about the relationship the two of them have.

If you missed it, or even if you heard, feel free to relisten, and then use the comments section as a sounding board.
