D'Antoni to Adelman?!

 

There is little to no improvement there.

 

MDI, you asked this before and everyone told you already.  He was offered the head coaching job in Charlotte but turned it down because he said he was waiting for another opportunity.  When he turned that downIndiana came calling immediately.

 

He was also interviewed for the Orlando job and didnt get it.

 

Adelman also has high IQ on offense. I'd rather work with a coach who is flexible on offense than a defensive coach who has no clue how to draw up plays (Brown)

With Adelman, doesn't he run the corner offense, which incorporates parts of the triangle?

I believe Shaw also turned Orlando down, not the other way around.

 

I'm not sure, though.

He did also turn Orlando down.

 

Adelman has no championship pedigree, can't win the big game and has proven it time and time again.

Losing to Detroit, LA, and Chicago with Portland is nothing to hang your head on.  Losing to the Lakers a few years in a row isn't bad either with the Kings.

No thanks, I rather have Shaw or SVG/JVG

 

But if he can bring Kyrie with him, I wouldn't mind

 

 

No to Adelman as well. As great as he is, he's old

I agree.

 

Adelman is by no means perfect, but he's won 1000 games, and he ALWAYS got the best out of his teams. This dude has coached a lot of teams with lesser talent to the playoffs. Also, everytime he got deep in the playoffs he lost to better teams. I mean, he lost to Isiah's pistons, MJ's Bulls, and the Lakers at the beginning of the 2000's. 

 

He reminds me a lot of George Karl. Good coach but never quite had the players to win the ring.

I'm not seeing as much love in here for Jerry Sloan as in the past. What's the deal?

Jerry Sloan would've been fine too, but he came out and said he isn't interested in coaching any more.

^ Money can do a lot to change minds. I'm sure if the right offer was made, he'd at least re-consider.

That would be fantastic as well.

 

Quite frankly I'm up for most anyone as long as D'Antoni is but a terrible memory after these last few games.

All these "old school work ethic put in 150%" coaches mentioned here would be lost on all but 5 players on this roster unfortunately.

Not sure if Sloan can handle the LA environment.

If you watch any of his several rants this season, it looks like he doesn't want anything to do with coaching for a while.

That dude wears out his welcome everywhere he goes. I don't think he'd work here.

Lakers need a young coach, someone who will be with them for many years to come.
