Lakers announcer was a fan of D’Antoni in Phoenix

For Phoenix Suns fans, the 2012-13 regular season has already turned into a bit of nightmare.

The Suns will have to call their former leaders rivals as they trade their familiar purple and orange gear for Lakers gold.

During the off-season, Suns’ legend Steve Nash was traded to the Lakers, and now former head coach Mike D’Antoni will join him in the City of Angels.

While Nash and D’Antoni were together in Phoenix, the Suns won 73 percent of their games over four years

Seeing the two reunited can’t help but bring up memories of better days in Phoenix.

John Ireland, the radio voice of the Los Angeles Lakers, joined Arizona Sports 620’s Burns and Gambo Friday and reminisced about the ways things used to be for the Suns.

“I have never been to more entertaining games than when D’Antoni was winning 55 games a year with you guys in Phoenix,” Ireland said. “I loved the whole act, I loved the way they won, [the way] Nash was dribbling, and there was a Globetrotters element to all of that.”
