Mark Madsen would be good in a few more years but not yet. Get him more experience.
Mark Madsen actually does have coaching experience and is probably more ready to be a coach than the likes of Kidd and Fisher were/are.
After he left the NBA he worked as an assistant coach before going to Stanford and being an assistant coach there.
Phil is actually the one that planted the coaching seed in him like Red planted the seed in Phil all those years ago.
So Madsen is a guy I'd love to see work his way and be a coach for us some day because he is very good at working with players and being a coach. He obviously needs experience, but I'd love to see him as an assistant next to the coach we hire for a few years. I guess you could call him our "Shaw".
But he is a guy more 'ready' to coach than some of the other players we've seen get coaching jobs as he was actually an assistant before coming back to coach here. The players also love him and he actively goes at them in practice as an opposing player while coaching them so I think they respect that.
So I'd say Mark would make a great assistant for us, along with Larry Lewis.
If he becomes the coach, expect kobe's print all over it.
