Who's out there? Who is brave enough or qualified enough to lead this franchise to another dynasty? I personally wouldn't want Shaw after the debacle in Denver nor would I want Rambis. I wouldn't mind Byron Scott as far as former Laker players go. But who else is out there? Who do we want? Discuss....

Byron Scott or George Karl in terms of names that would be out there if they fired D'antoni.

We can probably safely assume all the PJ clones will gravitate toward the Knicks such as Kerr, Shaw, Rambis, maybe Madsen, or even Luke Walton.

Kurt Rambis

George Karl is a big fat no from me. Career loser. You can't fire D'Antoni and then hire another proven loser. That's just stupid.

The 3 guys I mentioned can be called losers too if you want to be picky, but they haven't been given a fair shake. With the right assistants and right environment, all 3 can help turn this team in the right direction.

The Lakers need some one who runs a real offensive system. I don't think it matter what defensive coach or specialist in, this team will not play it.

For now. I still feel like he has more to prove though. The personalities on the Nuggets aren't really dealt with but he's not backing down from them and can get effort..some nights. 

but Byron is the same way and is experiened.  Karl is probably closest to the style that they want the Lakers to run however the question is what is it's effectiveness outside of the climate of Denver.

Oh yea because George Karl has been blessed with so many great teams. That guys best team came one game from beating us in 09 and going to the championship where they would have easily won a ring. 

 

All 3 you mentioned have horrible coaching careers. It's not picky calling coaches with God awful winning rates losers. Just because they worked with phil and played as Lakers doesn't make them good coaches.

Did people forget that D'Antoni is still our coach? Seriously.

Shaw has lost that team and I will be extremely surprised if he's not let go at the end of the season.

In 25 seasons as a head coach, George Karl has either missed the playoffs or lost in the first round 15 times.

He's a loser.

Karl is beyond the best choice so far. He's known to adjust well in playoffs and can over achieve with his teams.

Given our current predicament, I don't think we have the right environment or as Mamba called it, a winning culture, for those three to suceed. Those guys cant make lemonade out of lemons imo.

I feel like jeff van Gundy would be a good choice. I don't agree with everything he says but you can't deny his ability to coach. I think he would be perfect in rebuilding this team. Strong personality who will get the respect of the players. Also him only being 52 is nice. Means he could have a long career here. My biggest doubt with Karl would be his age.

Not really.  Looking at what Rambis was able to do or rather not do as a head coach of the Timberwolves and the fact that Mike Brown has done more with the 'going nowhere' Cavs than Byron was able to go goes to show what they can do with 'rosters' that are structured like ours.   Brian Shaw in his first year has completely lost a team and hasn't dealt with their egos well.    But he's no punk. He's made that clear.

Uhh yes it does. :laughing:

Byron Scott is a great coach. When he's not given a lottery team, he's tremendous. He took the Nets to the Finals in back to back seasons and did a great job with the Hornets.

Rambis is okay. There's better options, but in terms of familiarity and preserving a winning formula (Triangle), he would be a good fit.

Any criticism of Shaw is invalid.

Why would we bring in a proven loser like Karl to replace another proven loser? He hasn't done anything in the past, what's he going to do here? Either get a proven coach, or lay your own foundation. It's simple.

And for those wondering about Jeff Van Gundy, he has said he does want to return to coaching but would rather be an assistant than a head coach.
