FIND A STATION Dan Patrick Show
Jody Oehler and Mike “MJ” Jurecki fill in this week
Friday’s guests: David Ross, Joel Corry

Hall of Famer Jerry West joined the show to talk about the Lakers hiring Mike D’Antoni and more.

West said he wasn’t surprised they let Mike Brown go. “Frankly, it didn’t shock me at all the way things were going,” West said. “They didn’t look like they had a whole lot of energy.”

West said that the Lakers do need a system that lets Steve Nash be Steve Nash. West said Nash needs the ball in his hands. And he thinks that they need a system that gets Kobe Bryant easier shots. West said Dwight Howard will benefit tremendously.

West said the expectations are way too high in Los Angeles. “Names don’t win championships,” West said. “Teams do.” He said he sees a team with flaws.

West said that he saw Phil Jackson recently and the former coach looked very healthy. But West said Jackson told him he didn’t want to coach again and West bought it at the time.

Andrew Perloff @andrewperloffDerrick Jones Jr. vs. Glenn Robinson III in #SlamDunkContest final is not quite Jordan vs. Nique. Close. But not quite.13 hours ago
Andrew Perloff @andrewperloffWhat? 38 for Aaron Gordon - grabbing ball after it fell from drone, going b/w legs. What's he supposed to do, actually fly? #SlamDunkContest13 hours ago
Andrew Perloff @andrewperloffThis using people as props stuff in dunk contest is weak. Give me Harold Miner, Vince or Dominique using nothing but their own awesomeness.14 hours ago
