Lakers Head Coach D'Antoni Resigns

LOS ANGELES - In what has been a very busy, and at times surreal, week for Los Angeles sports continues as Lakers head coach Mike D'Antoni announced his resignation on Wednesday.

It is unclear who will fill the shoes of Lakers' head coach.

This news follows the Donald Sterling affair, which broke over the weekend and climaxed on Tuesday when National Basketball Association Commissioner Adam Silver banned Clippers' owner Mr. Sterling from the NBA for life, fined him $2.5 million and will attempt to make Mr. Sterling sell the team. This is an unprecedented punishment in the history of American sports.

Since that announcement many high-profile people have voiced their interest in buying The Clippers, including, Earvin "Magic" Johnson, Sean "Ditty" Combs, David Geffen, Oscar De La Hoya and Oprah Winfrey.

Many sport analysts believe Mr. Sterling will not give up the team without a fight.

The Lakers have wrapped up their rather lackluster season, missing the playoffs for the first time in eight seasons while under Mr. D'Antoni, while The Clippers are currently in the West playoffs leading the series 3-2 against the Golden State Warriors.
