Great, that's 1 less coach to feed. Now fire Pringles and find a taker for him, like the Bobcats because they're always running and play no defense. Not to mention, they're still tanking.

 

Laker "fans" hoping for a sweep?!  :turrible:

It's for the future. You swallow a huge embarassment for a better future, you take it.

Mike Brown getting hired by the Cavs will make the financial hit better.

So their is a rule where if mike brown for instance got another job we no longer have to pay him? If so then if Mike brown does get hired some where then MDA will most likely be fired. 

 

Who would be the next coach, who knows. But hopefully we dont go with the dumb notion, anyone is better than MDA. Thats what happened with Mike Brown and we didn't get much better. We are the lakers and we have allot of great players. It should be no problem to get a top tier coach.

Not many top tier coaches in the NBA right now. Besides POP, who else?  Jim Carey look alike in Dallas?  All we need is a coach that is good enough to not screw things up like MDA always do.  You think Spostra a great coach in Miami? He is an ok coach. He just happens to have great players.  But if we have him, he wouldn't screw it up like how MDA did it. We are not mad at MDA because the Lakers have a bad record. We are mad at MDA because he makes everybody confused and alienates everybody including his players and coaches. Injuries is one thing but to piss people off around you while coaching? That is unheard of.   Right now, Brian Shaw (an unknown) could be better than MDA. We know one thing, Brian Shaw won't screw things up or alienates people.  But if you want top tier coach, Phil is the only way to go. Jim Buss's nightmare is to rehire the zen master. 


MDA is an offensive genius. I hope he sticks to his guns and keeps doing what he does best: Run and Gun. That's the only way to coach.

That was the EXACT excuse for Mike Brown also.  Remember we didnt have a training camp cus of the lockout. End up being worst when Mike Brown had offseason to prepare.  Would of thought the Lakers learn their lessons.

 

Yeah but remember the princeton offense was new for the team, as well as the players we got.. we have 5 new players playing quality minutes ..

That will always, in my mind, be the downfall of Mike Brown.  He overcoached this team full of stars instead of making it easy for them and himself.

Then D'Antoni took our biggest mismatch in the post and shoved that down the toilet. He has this team pretending like they're something that they aren't.

This is about fixing the problem long term, not the remainder of this season and maybe not even about next season, considering Kobe is not scheduled to be back for awhile.  MDA is simply not the coach for a team with aspirations of deep playoff runs every year.

 

Who is that is available?  I don't see the "elite" level coach amongst the currently unemployed or otherwise available NBA types, except for the one obvious choice.  So who do we target?  I think we have to think more in terms of identifying a hotshot assistant that could become an elite coach in the future.

 

Shaw is the logical one to discuss first.  Who else?  A Popovich assistant?  Who else?

Kobe was hurt during the first month of PJs first season in LA. It really helped set the tone for Shaq to lead the way that season.


Dwight is no Shaq, but with the right coach and right situation, he could be poised to have a career year next year. And we need it.

So are you guys rooting for the Spurs to sweep? 

 

Yes, like I'm rooting for the Boston bomber to get acquitted for his alleged crimes.

At this point I have more faith in Bert or Ernie than this guy.
