The last time Mike D'Antoni was a head coach was with the Lakers and it was two brutal years where he dealt with injuries to three of his star players, Steve Nash, Dwight Howard and of course Kobe Bryant. It was Bryant who didn't vibe with the up-tempo offense. Wednesday night will be D'Antoni's first visit to LA when the Rockets visit Staples Center. "The biggest thing (in Houston), management, ownership, star players want to play the way you want to coach," D'Antoni said. "So that makes it nice no doubt. No second guessing. This is the way we're going to go."
