D’Antoni was recently the coach of the Los Angeles Lakers, as he lead them to a 27-55 record last season, without Kobe Bryant for over 70 games. Avery Johnson, was a coach of the Brooklyn Nets during the 2012-2013 season, until the Nets fired him after he lost 10 out of 13 games. During their last year in New Jersey, Johnson lead the Nets to 22 wins and 44 losses.
