How about putting yourself on blast and deviating from your absolutely ridiculous 8 man rotation to make a point. If you don't like how Kobe is playing...yank him! He's playing on a bad wheel and will play like Kobe if he's on the floor. If you don't believe he is 100%, then yank him and put someone else in.
But of course, he doesn't have the balls to do that....he'll just keep screaming and kicking in the media, till Kobe tells him to sit down...and he will...
MDA isn't the right coach to have in this situation. He's a good coach when he has the right players and they all buy into his system, but with the Lakers he's been taken out of his area of expertise and he is being asked take on tasks he's not well-equipped to handle, such as managing egos and running an offense for an older and slower team.
It also doesn't help that the Lakers lack the cohesion and chemistry necessary on the defensive end to overcome their glaring defensive liabilities resulting from their personnel. No coach can really overcome that, so it'll be up to Mitch to address this off-season.
