Then elevate Canales to lead assistant in charge of defense. Kaleb can get guys to buy into defense and gain experience. Defense is also an area that requires dedication and study of film which is right in Kaleb's wheelhouse.
And remember Mike developed Nash and Amare. He can help DL become one of the top point guards in the league and push LA into superstar status.Don't forget how Batum and Wes' numbers will increase as well and who knows maybe Hickson will reach his potential. I can't believe any of the players are going to complain if D'antoni gets the nod over Canales. Also Kaleb gets to learn from one of the top offensive gurus.
D'antoni moves the needle. Maybe Olshey can set up an interview with Paul on the yacht since they are both in London.
