Brian Shaw has been a much desired candidate in replacing Phil Jackson for next season. Jackson has consistently suggested this is indeed his last season and “last stand.”
Recently Kobe Bryant had some thoughts on former championship teammate Brian Shaw in regards to Shaw replacing Phil:
“I feel all of the players believe in coach B-Shaw,” Bryant said the Lakers’ Friday morning shootaround. “We have such a rapport with him. He’s been with us for such a long time. We all have a bit of a bias towards him.
Bryant and Shaw go way back and it’s great to hear the team so supportive of Brian. A great coach and man, it seems as the majority of Lakers fans would be happy with Shaw.
