D'Antoni's First Game A Close One

 

As Lakers’ sideshows go, the much-debated debut of Coach Mike D’Antoni Tuesday night wasn’t quite the re-opening of Showtime that anyone might have hoped for. A 95-90 victory over the Nets isn’t going to make Magic Johnson feel any better about the spurning of the guru, Phil Jackson. It isn’t going to make anyone forget the Clippers are the far more entertaining team in Los Angeles right now. And it isn’t healing D’Antoni’s surgically replaced knee any faster.

David Beckham Hangs Up the Cleats

 

David Beckham has announced that the 2012 MLS Cup Final on December 1st will be his final game for LA Galaxy, but the 37-year-old had insisted he is not ready to hang up his boots just yet.

Beckham has been heavily linked with a number of European, South American and Australian clubs recently, with his management set to look for a new deal following the LA Galaxy's final against Houston Dynamo next week.

The 37-year-old will part ways with the Galaxy after five years in America, although he is still eager to remain involved with the MLS.

"I've had an incredibly special time playing for the LA Galaxy, however, I wanted to experience one last challenge before the end of my playing career," Beckham said. "I don't see this as the end of my relationship with the league as my ambition is to be part of the ownership structure in the future.

GSP: Better Than Before According to Goldberg

 

Georges St. Pierre, the UFC’s welterweight champion, has been out of action since he defended his belt against former Strikeforce champion Jake Shields in 2011, because of an ACL injury which was sustained during training. This Saturday, he will step back into the octagon to unify his belt against the division’s interim title holder Carlos Condit, but how well will GSP do after such a long time off healing and rehabbing his knee?

Talking with Michael Landsberg on “Off The Record” on Tuesday, UFC lead commentator Mike Goldberg said that he believes GSP can potentially be better than he was before the injury and year long layoff.

“I think he might even be better,” Goldberg said. “He might have been able to take all of this pressure off himself mentally during the time away. Get away from the different types of training and improve himself as an athlete. Georges ‘Rush’ St-Pierre is one of the greatest fighters in the history of the sport.”

Where is Royce White?

 

Houston first-round draft pick Royce White is not with the team and says the Rockets have been "inconsistent" in their agreement to help him cope with his anxiety disorder.

The 16th overall pick in this year's draft made a deal with the team to travel by bus to some games this season so he could confront his fear of flying and obsessive compulsive disorder over the long term.

Heat Down Rockets 113-110

 

LeBron James scored 32 points in the second half and the Miami Heat rallied late for a 113-110 win over the Houston Rockets on Monday.

James finished with 38 points for the game. He also hauled in 10 rebounds and dished out six assists. Miami trailed the entire fourth quarter until James scored on a layup with 18 seconds left to play, giving the Heat the lead for good.

Chris Bosh also tallied a double-double, finishing with 24 points and 10 rebounds. Dwyane Wade chipped in with 19 points, seven assists and six rebounds in the victory.

"He is a big player that can go inside and outside," Wade said of Bosh. "It's a luxury having a guy like that. He understands how much he means to this team."

Chandler Parsons led the Rockets with 25 points and James Harden had 22, but he missed a potential game-tying 3-pointer at the end of the game for Houston, which has lost four of its last five games.

No PJ: Mike D'Antoni Will Lead The Lakers Through 2012-2013

 

The Los Angeles Lakers, in a wholly unexpected move, announced Monday morning that they signed former Phoenix Suns and New York Knicks coach Mike D'Antoni to replace Mike Brown as head coach.

D'Antoni's deal is for four years, his agent, Warren LeGarie, confirmed to ESPNLosAngeles.com late Sunday night several hours after the Lakers beat Sacramento 103-90 for their second straight win under interim coach Bernie Bickerstaff. A league source said D'Antoni has a three-year deal worth $12 million with a fourth year as the club option.

The deal was signed around 11:30 p.m. PT Sunday night, a source close to the situation told ESPN.

Lakers Minus Brown: Premature?

 

"I have great respect for the Buss family and the Lakers' storied tradition and I thank them for the opportunity they afforded me," Brown said in a statement. "I have a deep appreciation for the coaches and players that I worked with this past year and I wish the organization nothing but success as they move forward."

Assistant coach Bernie Bickerstaff has taken over as interim coach for Friday night's home game against the Warriors.

Kobe Bryant scored 27 points, Pau Gasol added 14 points and 16 rebounds, and the Los Angeles Lakers responded to coach Mike Brown's firing earlier Friday with a 101-77 victory over the Golden State Warriors.

Jordan Hill scored 14 points for the Lakers, who had just a few hours to absorb Brown's dismissal after just 18 months on the job. Following a bumpy first half under interim coach Bernie Bickerstaff, they pulled away in the third quarter with a 25-9 run led by Bryant, who also had nine rebounds and seven assists.
