With a 22-42 record and little hope of further improvement, Lakers coach Mike D’Antoni is merely coaching out the string this year in Los Angeles—and likely won’t be back next season.

ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith reported on Wednesday morning that he had heard D’Antoni would be out, and that the Lakers’ potential pursuit of free-agent Carmelo Anthony would be the reason. But multiple sources told Sporting News that the reason for D’Antoni’s potential dismissal is closer to home—star guard Kobe Bryant.

Bryant, sources said, has “no interest” in playing for D’Antoni next season, and wants a new coach in place for the 2014-15 season.

In Kobe's defense, Howard left for a ton less to get away from Mike. Pau wants to leave and the lakers have a lost a ton of games in Mike's two years. Also, Kobe wants Pau back

That's what I thought the minute I heard we were pursuing Phil Jackson. Can't say I'm thrilled with the prospects of a overpriced 40yr old Kobe joining us

Kobe and Pau can't keep up with that pace. It makes sense. I wonder who they'll target to replace

Kobe is irrelevant,

MDA needs to stay and they gotta get the man a point guard!
