07:26 AM ET 11.29 | Mike D'Antoni may not be in the driver's seat for coach of the year -- that's where Frank Vogel, Terry Stotts and even Gregg Popovich come in -- but the Lakers are 8-8 without Kobe Bryant and Steve Nash playing only six games. D'Antoni has managed to mix in minutes for almost everybody heading into Friday's game at Detroit. "He's playing 10 guys," [Jodie Meeks] said. "I'm sure that's hard to manage but I think he's doing a great job keeping everybody satisfied but at the same time hungry." That will change when Bryant comes back from his torn Achilles' tendon. ... For now, though, everybody's pleased. Except D'Antoni. "I feel we're OK, but I want this group to do something special," he said. "That's our goal. That's why I don't feel great about what we're doing, because we're not special yet. But I think we can get there."

Can you believe this injury riddled roster is out performing the Knicks???? I can't LOL!!!! Maybe they should've worked their but off to keep him in the Big Apple. They would actually be in the playoff hunt now.

Correction: Actually I meant to say why didn't the Mods post the "entire" statement by D'Antoni, instead of taking a sentence out of the middle of his statement. I guess maybe I'm a little too sensitive this morning. :-)

No question, that when Kobe comes back and he is able to play 20/30 minutes a game, then the other players minutes will diminish. That's what happens when a good players comes off of the injury list.

Things can get worse, just wait until Kobe comes back and highjack the team to get his stats.
