With the start of the new NBA season the LA Lakers have had no luck winning with their starting record of 1-4. The team thought who else to blame, but the coach. On Friday November 9th, the Lakers came to the conclusion to let coach Mike Brown go. Since the decision to let him go, rapper Wale wanted to be considered for the coaching job and tweeted:

@Wale: “. @Lakers I'll coach y'all #getmedoe ha”

The Lakers declined, and although fans wanted Phil Jackson back to coach the team, the Lakers decided to choose amongst these candidates: Mike D'Antoni, Jerry Sloan, Brian Shaw and Nate McMillan.

The team has decided to go with Mike D’Antoni who has an extensive history in basketball, and helped coach Kobe and others in the 2012 Olympics. Hopefully with the new coach the Lakers can start winning.
