Wow I've never made that connection. He does look so much like Ron Jeremy.
Byron Scott Named Head Coach

And a first round exit with that record
Gallo tore his ACL and they matched up against a young and hungry Warriors team. I remember a couple of those games they lost were incredibly close.
Look at that freaking roster for gods sake! Lawson was not a star yet (he's taken his game to a different level this year).
I'm not saying this guy is a saint but he kept the Nuggets relevant even without star power.
Klay Thompson's impact would be no different than the impact Jodie Meeks currently makes if not just a small amount higher and Jodie actually shot a better percentage than did Klay last year.

George Karl...coach of the year with a record of 57 and 25 last year with a starting lineup of Ty Lawson, Gallo, Iggy Faried and Koufos is a proven loser?
Get out of town. You clearly have no idea what you're talking about.
No I think I'll stay because someone in town needs to point out to you (and everyone else who wants Karl) that's he has 15 first round exits under his belt and is 3x the failure D'Antoni is.

My biggest point here is that Karl isn't a loser like your saying. I'm not saying we hire him. I still think if 10 years ago he left for a better franchise he would have a few rings. Byron had his moments but he is a risk being that his last few seasons even without LeBron were beyond horrid. He would have to go into a rebuilding team which he has shown he struggles with.
He loses in the playoffs. What does that make him? He has no championships. He's certainly not a winner. What's left?
If you want to say Scott is a loser, sure I can live with that. But he's less of a loser and he would have no trouble commanding respect from our guys, Kobe included.
And if you say Scott will struggle with a rebuilding team, but defend Karl because he's struggled with losing teams as well it's contradicting.

Whether Karl is a loser or not, would you really want him over some of the other options listed in this thread?

^ MDA would never have the cojones to do that. Where was he when Nick Young needed support?
I can only imagine what Mike Brown would have done. How many times did that guy go off when one of our guys was fouled or pushed while in the air?

Jerry Sloan is an adviser and consultant with Utah and he will be 72 or 73 this year I believe, would be an incredibly bad hire. What does Karl bring to the table that MDA doesn't? I'd seriously like to know. There is no quick fix in Lakerland. They should hire and new blood coach and go from there.
Sloan or Karl. No for all others.

Experience and attitude is all I care. D'Antoni thing could have worked but it was extremely unfair situation to him with all the injuries past year and this year (especially it being without Kobe) but things have to change for the next year from top to bottom because people are tired of this thing and all we want to see now is result. Sloan and Karl can bring that, and get Kobe's nod as well.

Why even bother to analyze anyone's PO record when this team is in rebuild mode?
We need a coach that can install a work ethic culture, teach defense, develop young talent, command the respect of the veterans, which will lead to a respectable product / results on the court. Once we stop getting blown out of every other game by 20+, we can actually think about a winning record again. Let's talk about the POs AFTER all those happen.
I would be looking for a good young head coach, and go the way Boston, Atlanta etc did. Then hire JVG as his asst.

Lionel Hollins and Derek Fisher as one of the Assistants. Got to get Fish back in the Locker Room

Lionel Hollins will be a fine choice
Karl hasn't proved anything
