    Brian Shaw will interview with Frank Vogel and Larry Bird this week for the Pacers lead assistant coach position, according to a source.

    Change the thread title name. It's Shaw that will be the lead assistant. -_-

    Anyways, dude, this is potentially a GREAT hire!!! Holy balls I had no idea this was possible!

    Thread title changed.

    I am excited for it as well, just worried he could bolt after the year is over but we can always find a replacement.

    I do love the young duo of Vogel and Shaw at the helm.

    Mike Brown probably wanted to bring his own people in.

    I think it actually makes sense for Shaw who in the past might been seen as a guy who rode Phil's coat tails to success over the past few years. If he comes here and help revive the Pacers franchise then then he will be seen as a guy who will get alot of credit, much like Mike Brown did with RC.

    Just read this.... this would be a very good hire. If vogel doesn't work out, we have a young head coach right behind him.

    Shaw owes this franchise some good fortune. Guy had knack for being a pain in our *** as a player seemingly everywhere he played!

    Be great to nab him. I thought he was going to be a HC next season so to have him under Vogel would be terrific

    That would be a great hire and hopefully we get it done.

    I've liked Shaw even to be a head coach.

    He has a lot to bring to this team.

    Hell, bring that entire staff. Shaw, Hamblen, and Person. Shaw's interviewing, Hamblen "would be interested," Chuck's Chuck, our money's as green as anyone else's.

    I'm being serious, bring em all.

    This would be fantastic. Honestly, we could have the guy that Kobe Bryant wanted as a coach..as our assistant coach. Think about that.

    It's a good combination of respect from the players, because of what the guy has done, but not enough to overstep Vogel, because Shaw is an assistant coach.

    It also shows, once again, that Vogel tends to do what is right for this franchise. Just like not squeezing unnecessary wins out of the team at the end of the season, he hires someone that would make firing Vogel if needed, pretty easy. (I hope it's not needed, and I don't think it will be..but that's a great assistant hire.)

    I read the Laker's were cleaning house to get rid of all Phil Jackson's influence.

    I'm not sure what Shaw can add to the team, but I'm glad we'd be able to get one of Phil Jackson's top assistant as our assistant. Go Frank!

    Ya, you have to think one of Phil's guys, and the guy supposed to take the LA job would be a pretty solid head assistant. I am pretty pumped.

    I know what Chuck Person brings to the table ( and, BTW...why isn't he in coming in for an interview given his defense and his ties to the Organization in the past ?), but I have no clue what Brian Shaw is other then being named as a Head Coaching Candidate for the last couple of seasons for whatever reason ( presumably for being Phil Jackson's Assistant ).

    What does Shaw bring to the table as an Assistant Coach?

    Hopefully a little bit of Phil Jackson.

    Phil thought of him as the heir apparent, Kobe wanted him too. Add the success the Lakers have had with him on the bench, well thats enough for me to want him.

    Man if we land him we will have a really strong staff with him and Vogel. Vogel is such a good head coach.

    The Pacers will take the entire Lakers coaching staff from last season, minus Phil, Kobe will demand to be traded to the Pacers, and it all leads to

The league knows it. They should be ashamed of themselves to let the security be as lax as it is around here."

    Just woke up to this awesome news! If Shaw is interviewing here for a lead assistant's role for a coach who hasn't coached an entire season, you have to think that Frank has really impressed in the short time he's had as head coach. I wouldn't be surprised if Frank did bring in Shaw, Hamblen, Person to fill out his staff. Hell, Kareem isn't with the Lakers anymore, bring him in too!

    Shaw will DEFINITELY have some great experience with handling the egos and personalities of NBA guys. Think about all the egos he had to deal with in LA as an asst.

    This would be a pretty good hire I think. Shaw should be a head coach somewhere some day (similar to how Mike Brown was our lead assistant).
