Jerry Sloan worked with a Nash style PG (John Stockton) for almost 20 years and had way more success than Diantoni. Sloan Preaches defense. I also feel he would be hungrier than Phil. I really don't think Steve Nash is a Traingle Offense kind of PG. If we don't go with Sloan I certainly hope it's Phil not Mike D. As long as Jerry's mental health is okay :laughing:

I vote for whatever the staff deems worthy and capable, personal choice is Phil, but either way I'm not upset with the final choice.

I'd love the Lakers to get Sloan. He is tough and he knows how to get the most out of a good PG.

Sloan was a great coach but is he now? or is Phil health and fatigue matter Hollywood may be moire than he could handle at this age. But if prime would be a valid choice. I never liked the Briown hire thought it was too quick, good on papper but never closed at Cleve so I would pass. And where was that defense?

I'm hoping we get Sloan also but it seems like it will be Phil, and hey....that's not so bad.

he is probably the best choice aside from phil. who knows if either are possible though. sloan is old school and thats what the lakers need, a hard nosed tough coach. lets all hope they dont give it to di antoni, we know kobe likes him and nash probably does as well.
Abdul-Jabbar told the San Francisco Chronicle last month he met Howard only once and that Howard expressed an interest in learning from the former Lakers captain but he never again reached out to Abdul-Jabbar.

‘He’s charming, he’s charismatic, very nice young man,’ Abdul-Jabbar said. ‘Maturity-wise, he doesn’t get it.’

Sloan is blue collar, similar to Brown. He doesn't get too fancy with his offense...he does what works. He preaches playing tough and competing at every aspect of basketball.

He'd be a GREAT coach long-term but he would not succeed without the complete backing of the org and a buy in from the players.

I'd love to have him but the more I think about it, he's not the right man for this job. He's better building a PROGRAM like Popovich than managing egos like Phil.

All the back cuts Nash would be setting in Sloan's offense would make me cringe because of how Nash's health has been this year.

Sloan is a real good coach. Anyone who thinks otherwise doesn't know basketball. Would he be able to get this team up and running quick enough? Not so sure. Given no less than 2 years, would this be the best team in basketball until Dwight retires? Quite possibly if they find a replacement PG for Nash.


There are other options available...just none as attractive as a return of a Legend.

There's no question about being a good coach of sloan but I don't want nash to work so hard cause the los angeles lakers needs healthy nash to win this year but I put sloan in 2nd option if Phil is not available

to be honest, Sloan's system is pretty safe for a point guard, it's D'Antoni's system has tear/fractures written all over it

I hope Phil can Change his Coaching style or at least add some things to the triangle to maximize the PG position if not Steve Nash will be a spot up shooter which is not why they brought him here.
