Mike D'Antoni: 'Coaches should be under scrutiny'

Los Angeles Lakers coach Mike D'Antoni believes that all NBA coaches should be under scrutiny regardless of their results.

Mike D'Antoni has said that coaches should be "under scrutiny" if they are in charge of an NBA team.

The Los Angeles Lakers coach has been linked with a move away from the team during the off-season, having failed to secure a place in a playoffs this season.

He told "Every coach should be under scrutiny. Some coaches get fired even after the best years they've ever had. There's always things we could have done better, and it's easier with hindsight.

"Things don't always go smoothly. For the most part, our guys were very competitive. For us, there are some silver linings in there, but in hindsight, it's disappointing for everybody."

This is just the second time that the Lakers have missed the playoffs in 20 years.
