Well the adjustment won't be a factor for either IMO. When Phil first took over the Lakers, they started 30-5 in their first 40 games. In his second stint, they struggled and were around .500 for the season but that roster consisted of Smush and Kwame.

D'Antoni's offense is more free flowing so there really wouldn't be an adjustment period there.

One thing people need to really look at is the long term aspect of the team. Best case scenario is Phil coaches the team for 2 years, then we go into that off-season with Dwight and Nash under contract, bring in a new coach and start off a new era under Dwight.


I think we should also focus on who benefits our bench as well. Our starting unit will be awesome but we do have a LOT of talent on our bench, would our lineups with the stretch players benefit more from D'antoni or from Phil? Cause if our bench is putting up 40 a game I'll be happy(37 tonight)

Whichever benefits our starters and our bench players would be a good choice

Though it would be interesting irony if Phil was the guy that beat his own team record with the Bulls with THIS team :laughing:

I would say lineups consisting of Kwame Brown, Smush Parker, Luke Walton, etc. were to blame during that stretch, not the system lol.

But in all honesty I wouldn't be bummed necessarily if Mike got the job. I want Phil though, I think he's the right man for the job.

Honestly, I will be pretty bummed if anyone other than Phil got the job. Doesn't really matter who.

Once we start winning though, I won't mind it. I trust the FO, obviously. They have done everything to win so far, so I don't see them doing anything to hurt us.

That would mean we would lose 5 games the rest of the season in order to beat that record. :laughing: :laughing: :laughing:

Well this is interesting:

There is a scenario in which former Lakers coach Phil Jackson would consider returning for a third stint with the team, sources said late Friday, but it will require executive VP Jim Buss once again relinquishing the organizational reins – and this time handing them to Jackson, rather than back to GM Mitch Kupchak.

One source described the possibility of Jackson returning, should a suitable offer be made, as “strong.”

...

That offense almost assuredly would return if Jackson were granted authority and/or Shaw, a long-time assistant coach of Jackson during his Lakers’ tenure, were hired. Sources say there is a scenario in which both Jackson and Shaw would be hired, with Shaw as the head coach mentored by Jackson.

Jackson proposed a similar arrangement to the Portland Trail Blazers at one point last summer, sources say, with former assistant Kurt Rambis as his head-coach protegè and Jackson overseeing basketball operations, but the Blazers declined.

Former Knicks coach Mike D’Antoni, former Blazers coach Nate McMillan and Mike Dunleavy, who has coached both the Lakers and Clippers, are among the Lakers’ list of candidates, a source said. D’Antoni just had knee replacement surgery last week and the recovery time has been projected as six weeks, but a source close to D’Antoni said that an accelerated rehabilitation program could potentially cut that time in half.

D’Antoni, of course, would be reunited with point guard Steve Nash, who became a two-time league MVP with the Phoenix Suns in D’Antoni’s up-tempo system and Nash, a source said, would welcome playing for him again.


From Ric Bucher btw.

I'm not sure how reliable Bucher is in this for the record. Earlier today he said there was no chance Phil would come back lol

You know that means: Phil Jackson would be the Lakers head coach then.

Do you guys remember how the Phil era ended in 2011? I'd pick D'Antoni as he could maximize Nash and Howard's strengths. This team can win a championship due to its extreme firepower on the offensive end. Defensively, we only have a couple of great defensive players. I'm not sure if Howard would fit in in the triangle and especially Nash. We must run P&R and P&P plays as much as possible otherwise we would be wasting Nash's talent.

Arguably the greatest franchise ever

Sorry. I think Jerry Sloan is the best choice. Steve Nash is not a triangle offense PG. Jerry Sloan has worked with a Nash like PG for 20 years. I think Jerry would be a very good and HUNGRY choice. And I know Kobe respects him Big Time
