Bryant suggesting changes to post play and half court acknowledges his apparent belief the Lakers erred in not hiring Phil Jackson. For all Jackson did for the Lakers — yes, he was well compensated — they did back out of several apparent promises, including some form of post coaching advising/mentoring position that Jackson could now get if the Kings move to Seattle as he’s close with that new ownership group. Howard, likewise, was repeating quietly and hardly seeming to have any fun that the team had to play inside/out. Yes, like in Orlando. The grass isn’t always greener even if it is a mild climate.

It’s not that acknowledged, but the Lakers went to Jackson on the suggestion of Howard’s “people,” whomever they may be. The Lakers had distanced themselves from Jackson because they didn’t believe he wanted to coach, and probably wouldn’t have had a change of heart to try if not for Howard’s suggestion. Though there are conflicting reports of what exactly happened, it is clear patriarch Jerry Buss overruled his management and rejected Jackson’s third return.

It makes sense to me why Dwight isn't engaged as he should be because it's possible he feels he wasn't listened to by management just like how the management in Orlando didn't listen to him.

No matter how many reports there are saying jerry made the call people will still blame jim. People don't believe what they don't want to be true I guess.

People will continue to blame Jim Buss and/or Mitch Mupchak, regardless, unfortunately.

I don't believe that jerry made the call , I still believe Mitch and Jim agreed on MA before informing Jerry.


I know Jerry is not in a condition of making decisions anymore.

Many people will not get this through their minds.

Jimmy will always be the scapegoat for many.

No its not, you may think it is, but if Bernie was the coach and still failed, you'd be in a bigger hole, it will be more of doubts whether the guy can coach or not .. I do want Bernie but it aint easy.

I don't think you understand that D'Antoni system is 50 percent of the reason we suck right now.

Nope, people will believe what they want to believe.

Jerry Buss could come out and say that he chose D'Antoni, and people will still say it was Jim.

I didn't say we'd be better off with Antoni. But the firing thing is not easy and simple, you'd put in account the possibility of failure again and the results that would come with it ..


I do want Mike to get fired , and i think its matter of time, but the coach is not all the problems we have, its a main one but not everything.

I mean obviously we have more than problem. But D'Antoni is the biggest and it will get simpler after that even if it ends up in failure or success.

I think Jerry has gone senile, thus, choosing D'Antoni over Phil Jackson.
My theory might be right
