Mike D’Antoni has the Houston Rockets leading the West with an 21-4 record. The 21-4 start through 25 games is one of the best in team history. Houston is certainly happy with D’Antoni right now, but no one supports him more than his wife Laurel D’Antoni who trolled Laker’s president Magic Johsnson after the Rockets downed the Lakers last Sunday night.
D’Antoni coached the Lakers, from 2012 to 2014, to a forgettable 72-92 record over the two seasons. When D’Antoni resigned in 2014, Johnson went on to tweet “Happy days are here again! Mike D’Antoni resigns as the Lakers coach. I couldn’t be happier!”
It appears Laurel D’Antoni didn’t forget Johnson’s words. As Jonathan Feigen tweeted, she is quoted as responding to a question about being back in Los Angeles as saying “Is it classless to say to say ‘Happy days are here again?”
D’Antoni was named Western Conference Coach of the Month with Harden being named Western Conference Player of the Month. Add best smack talking for the month to the list of Rocket’s honors.
