The NBA has finally started to transition from the hideous comments made by Donald Sterling and have begun to focus again on normal basketball stuff — like hating on the Lakers for being historically awful. In a season where they managed to end up in the top 10 of the lottery, at least hypothetically, the Lakers have forced out head coach Mike D’Antoni and he resigned from his position on Wednesday night.
Needless to say, Lakers fans are celebrating like the Ewoks at the end of Return of the Jedi and Magic Johnson is leading the group.
Happy days are here again! Mike D’Antoni resigns as the Lakers coach. I couldn’t be happier!

Johnson has been very vocal about his displeasure with D’Antoni as coach and his excitement over his resigning as coach is hardly surprising. But the best part about it is that Magic isn’t even trying to hide it and he’s letting us know how he really feels — and he feels like things keep coming up aces for Magic.
