We've had a surfeit of NBA news all week, and it continues. This time, from the "other" L.A. team, which surely is not used to being called "the other team."

Los Angeles Lakers head coach Mike D'Antoni has resigned. He joined the team in 2012, after coach Mike Brown was fired just five games into that season. This year, the Lakers finished 27-55 under D'Antoni, the worst record in franchise history.

For more on this, we're joined by Bill Oram, who covers the Los Angeles Lakers for the Orange County Register.
