Even with the possibility the Lakers could miss the playoffs for the first time since 2005, coach Mike D'Antoni has kept his sense of humor.
Consider his response when a Sacramento reporter asked about possibly coaching his last game if the Kings move to Seattle.
"You mean because I might not be coaching anymore?" D'Antoni chuckled.
D'Antoni signed a four-year, $12 million deal with the Lakers, which hold a team option for his final season. The Lakers' front office has publicly supported him.
Has D'Antoni been told otherwise?
"I don't know anything," D'Antoni joked. "As a matter of fact, that could be the problem."
