The Lakers are putting up billboards around LA encouraging Dwight Howard to re-sign with them, and promoting the hashtag #stayD12 on Twitter. How is that working out for them so far?



The #stayD12 replies range from “Good riddance, Dwight” to “Fire D’Antoni” to “Get rid of Dwight and fire D’Antoni, too.” Too bad they can’t just re-sign Andrew Bynum, but they’re capped out, and he’s not visiting teams until his bowling league’s playoffs are over anyway.

This newest Next Media Animation piece isn’t any more ridiculous than the Lakers’ situation, so it’s actually perfect.

"Coach D’antoni we were wondering if you would —"
I’LL TAKE IT!
"…find some where more appropriate to sleep tonight, sir. You can’t lay down in the middle of Mr. Buss’s driveway."

"He just said it was the point of no return. If he holds on much longer, we might never get out of this. We might be in a position where we didn’t make the playoffs, and he didn’t want that for us. He said as a team, we were talented enough to make the playoffs and make a run and that he really wasn’t getting through to us the way he wanted to."
—Jared Jefferies about Coach D’Antoni in The New York Times
And as you conjure the image of Mike D’Antoni clinging to life, but letting go of your hand anyway so that you can ”save yourself!” you start to think of him endearingly.

Yahoo’s Adrian Wojnarowski tweeted that Mike D’Antoni has resigned as head coach of the New York Knicks. 
Knicks fans, the D’Antoni era is over. Welcome to the Mike Woodson era, probably. 
In his three and half seasons with the Knicks, D’Antoni took the Knicks to the playoffs once.

Should Whoopi Goldberg replace Mike D’Antoni as the head coach of the Knicks? I mean, it worked in the movies, so it has to work in real life. Right? She could probably get Amar’e and Melo to play defense.

Look at these Cavaliers fans behind Mike D’Antoni. Suffices to say, it was a rough year.

Everybody’s got an opinion.
Rajon Rondo, responding to Mike D’Antoni’s pregame comments that he would “like to see (Rondo) play in Minnesota and see how he does.”
In happier times: Dwyane Wade, Carmelo Anthony, LeBron James, Brad Miller (!), and coach Mike D’Antoni about to order some food. I think Dwyane is really happy about those corn dogs.

Playoff wins would suffice as well.
