Ask that question to seemingly any Lakers fan, and they'll tell you they certainly hope so. As Loit Kaskla at LakerLiker points out, D'Antoni is not the man to lead a team through a rebuilding phase. And hard as it may be to believe, that is most certainly what the Lakers are heading towards.
Kaskla would prefer to see someone like Pacers assistant coach and former Lakers assistant Brian Shaw take the helm, believing that he commands more respect than D'Antoni and will exercise more discipline and focus over what often looked like a disinterested and lackluster team this year.
