Phil Jackon's "Zen Master" moniker isn't just some light nickname. You have to have an intense focus to be the head coach of one the league's most storied franchise: Los Angeles Lakes. You have to deal with Kobe Bryant being Kobe Bryant, being the scapegoat of a huge fan base, and constantly high expectations. Mike D'Antoni struggles with it, and that's not just on the court either. He apparently cries at night because of the team:
D'Antoni says he's been sleeping like a baby. "Every 15 minutes you wake up and cry."— Jeff McDonald (@JMcDonald_SAEN) April 27, 2013
He may need a hug or something afterward with the way this game against this Spurs game is looking.
