Mike Trudell

D'Antoni understand that there is and should be criticism even with the 319 injuries that were a sledgehammer to the roster.

Mike Trudell

D'Antoni hasn't met with Kupchak & LAL ownership about his own situation heading into next year yet. They'll take a bit of time away first.

Kevin Ding

D'Antoni said he will take an Easter holiday before discussing any job status further with Lakers management going forward.

Kamenetzky Brothers

UPDATE: Mike D'Antoni has been addressing the media for about 1 minute 48 seconds, and is yet to be fired. BK

Dave McMenamin

Mike D'Antoni says he hasn't had a meeting about his fate with the Lakers. Says they'll take off for Easter and then regroup

Mike Trudell

Mike D'Antoni is live at the podium (you can watch on bit.ly/IShmK or @TWCSportsNet ).

Bill Oram

D'Antoni said he and Kupchak have not discussed his future. First vacation, then get back together.

Mike Trudell

Here’s the @Kendall Marshall (my LAL social media Co-MVP with Swaggy P) exit interview summary, w/some good quotes on Nash: bit.ly/1jR47bh

One of my favorite pictures of all-time. Ha, Steve Nash’s hair. http://t.co/Q7kpUfAgeh

ICYMI: Nash, Pau are uncertain about their futures with the Lakers for vastly different reasons es.pn/1f3gRqT

While we wait for D’Antoni, Episode 4 of The Finish Line was released. Nash and Dirk reminisce on their Mavs days. bit.ly/1nunTdt

Gary Lee

If you have any questions for Mike D’Antoni, tweet them to @SerenaWinters. And no, “Fire D’Antoni” is not a question. It’s a command.

Gary Lee

Well, MarShon Brooks’ exit interview was fairly short. Head coach Mike D’Antoni will speak to the media in about 15 minutes.

Dave McMenamin

After playing for 4 teams in his first 3 years in the league, MarShon Brooks admits his career is "at a crossroads."

Bill Oram

Brooks: “I’m at the point where I’ve got to go earn a spot. And I don’t mind that at all.” An optimist if nothing else.

Mike Trudell

MarShon Brooks is the final exit interview. It’s been a tough year for him with multiple trades and limited playing time.

Gary Lee

“You’re only as good as your opportunity” - MarShon Brooks on inconsistent minutes since being traded to L.A.

Bill Oram

Marshon Brooks said he wants to find his way onto someone’s summer league team, then go from there.

Mike Trudell

Kendall Marshall’s contract with the Lakers goes through the 2013-14 season, but is non-guaranteed. He said he’d love to stick around.

Mike Trudell

Marshall acknowledged that he was “creeping” on Steve Nash all season, trying to emulate the PG, even recording Nash on his phone.

Gary Lee

“I think I showed that I can run a team” - Kendall Marshall

Bill Oram

Kendall Marshall: “I think I showed that I can run a team.“

Mike Trudell

Marshall realized he belonged, but recognizes making an impact requires that constant confidence and energy.

Dave McMenamin

Kendall Marshall on Steve Nash: "It may sound weird, but I was creeping on Steve ... I video taped his pregame shooting on my phone"

Gary Lee

“Kind of felt like I was a rookie this year, so that grind… kind of wore on me sometimes” - Kendall Marshall (via @SerenaWinters)

Mike Trudell

When @Kendall Marshall got called up, he was just happy to be here, let alone get 35+ mpg due to injuries.

Mike Trudell

Kendall Marshall is the 2nd-to-last exit interview: “The meeting went well. We talked about things they want me to get better at next year.”

Gary Lee

Day 2: Kendall Marshall, MarShon, D'Antoni, Kupchak - Got questions? Send em to @SerenaWinters

Gary Lee

And no, Mike D’Antoni hasn’t been fired. Mitch Kupchak mentioned that the team will take some time off before reviewing this season.

Kamenetzky Brothers

Late to the party, but @PAPPADEMAS’ breakdown of Nic Cage’s latter/bizarre/often terrible movies is great. AK es.pn/1n1xATt

Before Day 2 of exit interviews start in an hour, we’d like to wish our news writer, @TheeCoreyH a happy birthday! Give him a follow.

After averaging 8.0 points and 3.7 rebounds, Kelly has been one of the best rookies. He believes L.A. wants him back. bit.ly/1jOSUYT

Gary Lee

When Ryan Kelly was drafted by the Los Angeles Lakers with the 48th pick in last year’s draft, no one really knew who he was.

Kendall Marshall

Gary Lee

Day 1 of exit interviews are complete. Kendall Marshall, MarShon Brooks, Mike D’Antoni, & Mitch Kupchak will talk tomorrow starting at 9:30

Mike Trudell

That'll do it for today, folks. Kendall Marshall, MarShon Brooks, then Mike D'Antoni and Mitch Kupchak.

Bill Oram

But Kelly is hoping for some sort of All-Rookie recognition. Imagine he’ll get it

Mike Trudell

Kelly on D'Antoni: "I love Coach D'Antoni … he let me play my game, gave me confidence … he stuck with guys that were playing best."

Bill Oram

Ryan Kelly says “obviously there’s a lot of rookies that have had great seasons.” Uh-huh, ok.

Mike Trudell

Kelly is very aware of his strengths and limitations, and seems to get what he needs to do to stay in the NBA for a long time.

Mike Trudell

Kelly said it really helped him to play for the @DFenders this season, an opportunity to play bit minutes and build confidence.

Mike Trudell

Often this season, when Kelly was open from 3 (he's 6-11, after all) he passed or wasn't ready to shoot. That'll definitely improve.

Mike Trudell

Kelly's focus is on becoming stronger and more athletic, and though he's already a good shooter, he needs to get better as a stretch 4.

Mike Trudell

Kelly said he doesn't feel like pick No. 48 represented his value, but there were the injury concerns (broken foot).

Mike Trudell

Kelly on his rookie season: "I think everyone was happy with the way I played this season as a rookie."

Kevin Ding

Bill Oram

Sacre: "We went to a lot of dinners on the road, we went to a couple of movies. It wasn't a date, though, so don’t get that [confused]"

Bill Oram

"He is like Ron Burgundy," Robert Sacre said. "Chris Kaman is his own breed."

Bill Oram

My goodness, Rob Sacre just delivered an endorsement of Chris Kaman that should find its way to Kaman's LinkedIn page.

Dave McMenamin

Robert Sacre: "Like Ron Burgundy, Chris Kaman is his own breed"

Mike Trudell

LAL re-signed Sacre before this season for a reason. It takes bigs longer to develop, and his rise has been steady in two seasons.

Mike Trudell

Sacre thinks he showed that he belonged in the NBA, which is rarely a reality for the 60th pick in the draft. His coaches agreed.

Dave McMenamin

Robert Sacre starts his exit interview press conference by scanning the media in attendance and saying, "No Beto?!" @DuranSports

Mike Trudell

Robert Sacre started his interview with: "No Beto (@DuranSports)?"

Mike Trudell

Here's a summary of Pau Gasol's exit interviews: bit.ly/1gEtVUd

Bill Oram

Wes Johnson said Kobe had defensive scouting reports of players on his phone. "He's a maniac with that."

Dave McMenamin

Wes Johnson said Kobe keeps defensive notes on how to guard certain players in his cell phone: "He's a maniac with it"

Mike Trudell

"Flying around out there" is how Johnson described how he can and should play, whether at the 3 or the 4.

Mike Trudell

Johnson recognizes that his play was inconsistent, said he was "trying to find (his) niche" within the game. Still growing in that way.

Mike Trudell

Johnson suggested that Kupchak/D'Antoni saw encouraging signs from him, and that they wanted to see a greater level of consistency.

Gary Lee

For those who don’t want Pau back, who’s the best big man available this summer? I honestly think it’s him and the Lakers need to re-sign.

Kamenetzky Brothers

I had no idea, but Meeks has apparently been finishing up credits to graduate from Kentucky this summer. “Cap and gown and everything.” AK

Kevin Ding

Meeks was Lakers' MVP this season. Really impressive. I'd say all things considered, Young is more likely to be back with Lakers than Meeks.

Dave McMenamin

Jodie Meeks with a big smile talking about his summer plans: "Graduation (from Kentucky) is May 10th. Cap and gown and everything"

Kevin Ding

I'm convinced Meeks is more excited about graduating from Kentucky this summer than his free agency--which is cool.

Mike Trudell

Jodie Meeks is set to graduate from Kentucky on May 10. He's been plugging away at his degree in his NBA offseasons. Pretty cool.

Gary Lee

In addition, Gasol sees himself playing for another five years and prefers playing a more controlled pace. bit.ly/1iudAWk

Kamenetzky Brothers

Meeks said he's not too concerned about starting while weighing options. More about minutes and overall opportunity. AK

Gary Lee

With Pau Gasol becoming an unrestricted free agent, he says Kobe is "one of the main reasons” he’d return. bit.ly/1eYCjgI
