The Laker's very own shadow-ruler, Kobe Bryant, is reportedly pleased with the new choice of coach — and has even given praise as his seal of approval.
Here's what he said online about Mike D'Antoni:
It's been a wild week to say the least.
I'm happy to have closure and can't wait to get to work with Coach D'Antoni.. spacing, ball movement. And despite the chatter, I believe we will be phenomenal defensively. I'm looking forward to getting started with him and his staff this week.
Cool sign off, Kobe.
Well, at least this is a good sign that Kobe might not be throwing a hissy fit over the new choice anytime soon. We'll see once Mike actually steps in. Ha!
Good luck, Mike!
