Bill Russell was the Celric's Player-Coach for three seasons; Bob Petit was player coach for St. Louis;
Dave DeBusschere was a player coach for the Detroit Pistons; Lenny Wilkens was a player coach for both the Super-Sonics and the Trail Blazers; Dave Cowens is the last player-coach in the league. He coached the Celtics in the 1978–79 season.

Here is my case for Kobe being player coach:
  • This is Kobe's Team. He's the guy in control. Make if official.
  • Kobe Self-Professions of What Might Be the Best Coaching Decisions Might Be Right--Turn Over the Reigns to Him.
  • Let Kobe Scream at Gasol, Howard and Nash. He already is, so make it official.
  • If Kobe Doesn't Make the Playoffs With Kobe at the Helm, You Know Who To Blame
  • Kobe Has a Great Basketball Mind. Let Him Prove It With the Xs and Os.

Phil ain't coming back guys, so move on. I vote Kobe for Player Coach.

If you peeped the start of last night's game, Kobe took the offense in his control... With straight to the post and dominated that first quarter

I think Kobe would be a terrible coach in the same way I think Jordan would be terrible. Too competitive, too much ego, difficult to play WITH as a player, let alone having to play FOR if he were the coach.

I think Fisher would be a good coach. Luke Walton would be a good coach. BRIAN SHAW is a good coach *coughFrontOfficecough*

As for Kobe, I gotta say no. I would think he would hate coaching too

you dont understand Kobe is on a different level his teammates can not & will not match. HE cant be the sole head leader nor coach of this team. HE demands excellence from himself that he knows the other players cant reach nor care too. Kobe has said himself he is a psycopath. Kobe cant do everything for this team. you have a coach & assistants = they should do their jobs if they are gonna steal the $!

Kobe said he would never coach when he retires, let alone when he's still playing ..

My basketball mentor corrected me. Since the salary cap was instituted prior to the 1984–85 season, the NBA has prohibited teams from employing a player-coach.

Never mind.

What's Derek Fisher doing these days? He'd make a much better coach than the current idiot we got.

Yeah, that's true. I considered putting Bird with Magic and Jordan but he was different, he has had success as an executive as well.

Magic just hated coaching, and I think Kobe would as well. Magic could do it though because he was a better teammate than Kobe or Michael. They all have the same competitiveness, the same ego. But Kobe and Jordan would be unbearable because of their personalities. Just relentless in the sense that if you're going to play with them, you better be able to hack it or you'll get destroyed. Whereas Magic and Larry were better teammates, they did a better job of making everyone around them better and making everyone feel involved while still keeping that competitive edge.

It is time to win 10 games in a row. Period.

Arguably the greatest franchise ever
