Either he was in the hot seat before the season started, or one or more players demanded him to be fired. When you have that much talent and you aren't winning you have bigger problems than the coach.

I think the Lakers have deeper problems than just coaching. But hey, firing the coach is the easiest roster move to make eh?

For all the talk about the Princeton offense, their offensive numbers actually look ok. It's their defense that has fallen off, and that probably has a lot to do with the aging players on the roster.

I am sure that the Lakers can cover the cost of crutches in their medical plan ;)

Not much of a concern though....get an interim coach for the next month or two....then have D'Antoni come in when he's ready. Although there is a chance that Dwight can leave after this season....the Lakers aren't in the position to wait it out and hope that things work out under an Interim Coach.....they have to get a Proven Coach when they have all of the Big 4 on the roster.

As long as their starting five stays healthy, yes. But a season with a deep playoff run will take its toll on the players. Don't think their current roster will be enough to reach the finals.

And Brown...a supposed defensive minded Coach did? ;)

Has D'Antoni ever had a defensive frontcourt like Pau and Dwight before? Maybe Chandler and Amare....but Amare defense has always been suspect. Get the offense going with a Starting lineup that arguably has a top 10 PG, a Top 3 SG, a Top 10 PF and a Top 3 Center and the defense will figure itself out.

Even though this is pure silliness...that would actually fix some of our issues. Ron Artest may be seven kinds of a unique character, but he's not afraid to attack the basket and he doesn't shrink away from anything. As long as Mike Brown doesn't get anywhere near the HC spot lol

Deep down inside they might not be happy, but this organization especially with Donnie Walsh in charge would never deny someone their shot to move up. Just not in their nature.

Of course the question is what didn't the Lakers see in Shaw that gave them pause?

It's the owners. They didn't care much for Phil or the triangle offense, and Shaw is one of "Phil's guys" and one who also believes in the triangle offense.

I keep hearing this line "if the Lakers stay healthy", but the Lakers have to GET healthy to stay healthy. Howard isn't 100% and it shows - especially on defense where he just isn't as mobile. Nash (once he gets healthy) hasn't been able to stay in front of guys on D for years. A 40 year old point guard who can't guard anyone and a center coming off back surgery just isn't a winning combination.

11-09-2012, 03:10 PM
My guess is they'll just go with Bernie Bickerstaff until further notice and make a formal search in the 2013 because it seems like Brian Shaw has no desire to return there and Mike D'Antoni recently had surgery. Their rumored top choices.

We'll have to wait and see, but can't say I'm not surprised they fired him. I was thinking they'd go a whole month into the season to see how things would turn out, but it's a mess in LA now.

I think Person got overlooked for the same reason that Shaw did. The Lakers are primetime baby. They don't grow coaches, they bring them in and have them rub shoulders with Hollywood. Mike D would work, and Sloan would be the best fit. But Sloan is too blue collar. He can get them to play together, but I do not see him taking the job.

Nate McMillan would be a great fit as well. Probably the best fit IMO.

I rarely disagree with you, but I think the firing was ridiculous only 5 game in.

The Lakers have played only 1 game with there lineup intact. Nash is not healthy, Dwight is not a 100%. If they didn't like what he did last season they should have fired him in the summer, coaches rarely change that much, they knew what they were getting. I still believe pretty strongly that Brown is a good coach.

You can't just throw a new team together and expect intimidate results, even with superstar talent. Even Miami struggled pretty bad at the start.

With a Starting lineup that includes Nash/Kobe/Pau/Dwight.....they don't need a deep bench. When Nash returns....they have Blake, Jodie Meeks, Jamison and Jordan Hill to fill in the rest of the 8-9 man rotation. It's not great....but you don't give up having a Frontcourt rotation of Pau/Dwight.

In a Mike D'antoni's type of offense you need at least 4 positions that can stretch the floor, leaving Gasol is going to create the same issues he had in Phoenix with Shaq/Amare and Amare/Tyson in NY, if I was the Lakers I trade Gasol for somebody that can score off the bench when Kobe is out, maybe a mix of players.

i would say more than probably. ever notice how almost every team has a few guys who have been head coaches before?
they understand that head coaches get hired and fired. and those who speak nicely and in defense of other head coaches are likely to get hired as an assistant one day down the road if the come looking for a job.

I don't think he's a terrible head coach, just a below average head coach.

It may have been a train wreck, but my guess is this has more to do with his lack of chemistry with Kobe than the team's record. Considering Dwight Howard was either not on the team yet or rehabbing when he was finally traded, there was bound to be a rough gelling period with Kobe early on.

It looks like the Princeton Offense will be abandoned...and it appears that Buss doesn't like the Triangle offense. Given that you have a super passing PG like Nash, a Super Scoring SG like Kobe, an above average scoring and rebounding PF like Pau and Dwight ;) , what is the best offense that would be best tailored to their skills?
What's the one they run during the all-star game?
:D

I wonder if this might be when Krzyzewski decides to go pro? Kobe seemed to like him previously...

Is Phil Jackson's cell phone the only # that Jerry Buss has on speed dial whenever they have to replace a coach every couple of years?

It won't be easy switching to the triangle after the season has started. But, I guess, most of the players have played it. It shouldn't take long for Howard and Nash to learn it......:cool:

Time's far past for K to try out the NBA, the guy's 65. He'll probably be done at Duke inside of 5 or so years and that'll be that.
