First of all listening to Mitch talk, for me, is like listening to somebody break really bad news to someone. Though he is a stand-up guy in many ways, I've no idea how he could ever be expected to close a free agent.
Some highlights (mostly Laker stuff here only):
Plans to work in basketball still will check other teams for positions.
Feels Jim's self-declared "timetable" to return the team to prominence was both incorrect in span and probably doomed the both of them.
Said he and Jim felt it was clear PJ did not want to coach anymore and that if they could talk him into it, it would've been a 1 year job so they moved on.
Sticks up for D'Antonio and his hire. Says he's one of the best coaches and that today's game is because of him....
