Like most NBA players, he feels like the offseason gives new hope to a Lakers team that won only 26 games last season. And that includes the addition of rookie guard Lonzo Ball. “He’s a really smart kid,” Brewer said. “The best thing about him is he makes the right pass, he makes all the right plays. Even when he was playing badly in the first game of the Summer League, he was making all of the right plays. It just didn’t go right.”
After all these years, D’Antoni has a soft spot for guys like Harden: great players who are willing to give up pieces of themselves for the greater good. He’s also partial to unheralded guys who have overcome ridiculous odds, like Patrick Beverley, who got his professional start in unheated gyms in Ukraine. But there’s nothing D’Antoni loves more than a good story, which is why ex-Rocket Corey Brewer will forever have a place in D’Antoni lore. Early this season, Brewer, who was traded to the Lakers in late February, took a pass on the baseline, drove, spun, shook two defenders with a 360 and missed a point-blank shot at the rim. “Coach, I did my thing,” he told D’Antoni, “but then I got to the rim and just ran out of talent.” “Ran out of talent,” D’Antoni repeats. “Best line in the history of basketball.”
