Steve Nash: 'John Wooden couldn't save these Lakers'

There has been so much talk this season about will the Lakers keep or fire Mike D’Antoni after the season. The Lakers have obviously had a bad season even though they weren’t expected to make any real noise this season. Add into the mix that they have not been healthy at all and you have a recipe for disaster.

Steve Nash has defended D’Antoni before and he was feeling reflective when he dropped this line:

John Wooden is regarded as one of the greatest basketball coaches of all time and won 10 national championships in 12 seasons, including seven in a row. He also led the Bruins to 88 wins in a row for those of you too young to remember or without Google. 

Nash is right though, no one can save these Lakers. That probably won’t stop them from firing him.
