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.
