Sad that it's even a choice one has to think over now, the freakin Clippers.

Alvin Gentry will decide between joining Lakers and Clippers staff in next couple of days.

He'll choose the Floppers. Who in the right mind would like to "serve" under MDA :freak2:

Well Gentry coached under 'Antoni before I believe, before he took over for him in Phoenix, so if he does choose the Clippers, my opinion of 'Antoni will be even lower.

^ Yes he did. But after he got a head coach job his mind had to change a bit. I know i wouldn't pick Mike to be my boss :man9:

Gentry would be an associate head coach on Doc's staff. His institutional knowledge is a huge bonus. Tough call bc friendship with MDA tho

And he did state previously that an assistant coaching position for the Lakers is the best assistant coaching job in the NBA.

Man...

Literally the only way I'm in any way comfortable with D'Antoni moving forward is with Gentry and McMillan on staff too. But we have no momentum and very little pull here. If neither of them are on staff we're in big trouble and it's looking like we might not get either.

F***...

This season sucks already. Gentry was probably one of the ONLY reasons to continue to back D'Antoni. We're not only missing on players and coaches, but now assistant coaches.

S*** is looking pretty bad in Lakerland.

This is what I don't get...

If the crew MDA wants isn't available and taking other jobs, what does he turn to?

Just a group of randoms with resumes making the best case for the spot? I don't like that idea one bit.

Even 'Antoni's old crew is not interested in joining him, and we're sticking by this clown why? Man this season is already disappointing me and the draft isn't even here yet.

It's kind of sad that we're going to lose out on Dwight because of Mike D'Antoni. I would do the same honestly, I wouldn't waste the prime of my career playing for a coach who doesn't know how to use me properly. It's the Lakers own stupid fault for continually backing coaches who don't know what the hell they are doing. It's a scary thought to think about where this franchise would be without Phil.

I gave MDA somewhat of a pass this season because the injuries made this team a mess and he eventually relinquished control because things were headed for disaster. However I can't see him doing that again and if this becomes apparent to Dwight he's a goner.

The front office might be the only people supporting Pringles at this point. Imagine Gentry prefers to go work for a guy who beat him for a position he really wanted than to reunite with his old "boss" on the freaking Lakers of all teams.

They are the only ones :freak2: I don't think more than 1-2% of Lakers fans are "pro" MDA.

^^ It's pretty sad, really. I just don't understand why the FO is willing to roll the dice with Dwight just to keep D' Antoni. The guy was an awful choice from day one. Now they run the risk of losing their FA just because they are backing this guy. To me it's just kind of stupid. Unless they really don't care about keeping Dwight. If that's the case, then fine, don't worry about the coach. But if they are trying to keep him here fire the guy and pick up one of the good coaches that's on the market. Doc Brown and realdeal went over it thoroughly on the last page and I'm in agreement with them on basically all that they said.

It's just a VERY strange vibe from the Lakers right now. Like they really want Dwight, but aren't willing to do what it takes to keep him. To me it's a very passive position they are taking . . . They are sending mixed signals really. Like we want you, but we won't make any changes or give you any assurances besides a paycheck. He's already basically said through his mouthpieces that he doesn't like D' Antoni, would like Phil and Jeannie somehow involved in the running of the FO . . . These are things that are actually good for the franchise, not diva demands. These are things the majority of the fanbase would love to see, too.

I am going to try to restrain myself from throwing stones here . . . but it really does have the feel of Jim Buss. His sister warned that he was too passive and indecisive for this job in that famous article about the family. She might have been dead on the money.

And re: Gentry going to the Clippers, it's not a good sign. I wasn't really high on the idea of three head coaches (coaching by committee) in the first place as it was kind of disastrous last year, but in this case at least it had more of a chance of working since Gentry and McMillan had worked with D' Antoni before. To lose Gentry is a bad sign. To the F'ing Paper Clips? Are you kidding me?

:bang: DAMN IT Gentry!

There are becoming fewer and fewer options out there to save our bench in the form of an assistant coach.

If we're gonna fire MDA we do it the 1st week of July. Not now, Dwight will change his mind we gotta do something that will stick fresh in his mind. I think if it comes down to Dwight or MDA, MDA will be canned

Here's a new one: Clippers outbid Lakers so far in $ that it was an easy decision for Alvin Gentry to join Doc Rivers over D'Antoni.

Sterling is historically a very cheap man who doesn't even like paying people money after he's signed them.

If the Lakers really wanted Gentry (and if they do fully support Pringles and want to give him the best chance to succeed then they should have), then I find it hard to believe that they'd not only lose a bidding war to the Clippers, but apparently get crushed.

This might be a good sign that the Lakers aren't as confident in Pringles as they've been claiming. Or maybe Im just seeing what I want to see.
