Became a laker fan during Sharman's days coaching lakers. A long time ago. You'll be missed, Sir.
I remember thinking how weird it was for a celtic to be coaching the lakers to a title...with another former celtic KC JONES as Sharman's asst coach in 71-72.
Buss, Chick,Flynn Robinson, Sharman...I'm missing these guys and i know the lakers will have a nice tribute opening night (tues) for Bill.
Jeanie's statement was very classy. Nicely done.
Praying for 1. Kobe's Health (a special 20th season, like he deserves), 2. Draft Picks Ballin (they better. Seems half the team hasnt played in league) 3. Miracle Move (We still need 2 more impact guys, but Bass and Lou are solid moves), 4. Hibbert (trimming down, change of scenery and attitude sorely needed) 5. Upshaw (If he works out, mitch and jim and ryan deserve major kudos as the risk is minimal). Staples (some renewed energy in that building, been a total morgue last couple years)
READY FOR SEASON!

"Bryant had come to rage against the idea that Howard's clownish disposition could overtake the locker room, the Lakers' culture, and had warned Howard that he would never, ever let it happen."

I'm shocked. Very sad to hear that Bill has passed away. R.I.P. Bill Sharman.

This guy was about as legendary as it can get when it comes to basketball. On both sides of the most extremes of success with the two most successful franchises in the history of the NBA & mixed in playing and coaching with some of the most legendary players on top of it as well. RIP.

Hoping the Lakers find a way to get him on the wall and wear black bands on their uniforms this year.
