IMO D'Antoni is just as bad as Brown, his offense is good, but he doesn't coach defense at all from what we've seen. It would be a lateral move if you ask me, he was run out of NY for a reason.

Remember D'Antoni turned around the Knicks, taking them to the playoffs.
He was ousted because both Melo and Amare need the ball, can't co-exist and are not interested in defense.

Both Kobe and Nash respect D'Antoni - the same cannot be said about Mike Brown.

Please no with D'Antoni.

If you hire a new coach, it's Sloan or bust (imo) ... unless I'm forgetting someone.

The guy has to have a Playoff-proven system, experience and command respect.

Didn't it also have to do with Melo and Lin kind of splitting the team into what type of offense they should run and who the leader of the team was?

I'd take D'Antoni over Brown any day of the week. We have defensive leaders that could lead the way to where I wouldn't worry about defense...and our offense would be unstoppable.

Bleh.. Pringles is terrible, although I'd rather him over Brown given them as the only choices.

JVG would be fine. Got tired of his mouth while announcing though.. and his constant doubts about the Lakers.

Yes, but don't take it for me, take it from Kobe.

"Bryant echoed Gasol’s statement, saying that “everything is correctable.” But he got out a final bit of frustration when a reporter asked if the Lakers were “worried” by the slow start.

“I’m terrified. Are you serious with that?” Bryant said. “I’m shaking in my Nikes.”"

I would take Sloan over Pringles.

1. Sloan had the greatest PnR tandem of all time ... imagine what he could do with Nash and Howard.

2. Sloan also uses a motion offense that I remember John Wooden said was a thing of beauty. I remember him saying that the way the Jazz played back then was how the game should be played.

3. Sloan always preaches defense and his teams are usually pretty good on that end.

4. Sloan managed an aging team very well especially at the PG position with John Stockton. He had good rotations and is good at game management.

5. Sloan would command instant respect. He's a throwback, which I think Kobe would like and respect.

6. I remember that Sloan always had Phil's respect. Phil thought he was a good coach and said it was a tragedy that Sloan had not won a CoY. Here's what Phil said when Sloan resigned:

"He was stubborn, you have to be as a coach. But he had a system and the system was effective. It’s not easy to have a team in Utah. It’s not the biggest draw in the country as far as free agents to go there. And they were able to have a really great home record, played the kind of basketball that was admirable. So we all had admiration for him as coaches around the league. So as a colleague, we’ll miss him."

Phil rarely praises opposing coaches. I remember when the Bulls played the Jazz in the finals, Phil never took jabs at Sloan.

Sloan would be a great fit for this team in my opinion. Forget the Pringles nonsense ... that would be Mike Brown 2.0 but on the offensive end.

Pringles is a bad idea guys...... his system with the age of this team would not have good long term results IMO.

The Lakers are right to introduce a read and react half court system but they are running the wrong one IMO. They should have swallowed their pride and seen if they could have gotten an assistant for the triangle and introduce more of it where majority of your core rotation already knows it! By going to a completely new system for almost everyone they are prolonging the painful process on offensive cohesion. Seems like the Buss family is biting of their nose to spite their face here in their dissatisfaction of the most successful offense in the last 25 years.

^^ Beautifully written post Big Mamma Jamma. And I agree all the way. You've really articulated everything I've been thinking about in regards to why Sloan would be a great fit for this team.

This is a veteran team that needs a veteran coach. They need the most work on the defensive end, and they need a coach who can structure a simpler but effective offense tailored to their strengths. And most of all they need someone who they respect and will buy into as their head coach. Brown is not that guy any longer if he ever was to begin with.

Well said BMJ.

The more I watch Brown and what he's done so far, the more I want Sloan. I still don't have any problem with the offense, but the rotations are literally so God awful that it's costing us games.

Not to mention our defense looks like total s***. Isn't that what Brown is supposed to be good for?

Sloan coaching Steve Nash and Kobe Bryant would just be phenomenal. It's what they deserve for their final years as players. Hall of Fame Coach for Hall of Fame players. One of the best who's ever coached the game for two guys who are absolutely two of the best of all time in the league. It's a match.

It's embarrassing and awful to watch these guys waste time with a coach who doesn't have a clue. It's offensive really.

Nash needs a guy he can follow. A coach who is deliberate and can tell him what he wants, not one that misuses him and puts the blame on him ("He can run pick and roll any time he wants").

Nash and Kobe at least deserve better than this. Much better. And we do too as Laker fans.

Deron Williams' fight with Sloan was mentioned here as some kind of detraction from the idea that Kobe, Nash, et. al will respect Sloan. To me that doesn't hold water. Williams is a headstrong young player who wanted to run things his way as PG of the team and Sloan being old school wouldn't put up with that. He felt it was time to go and let the team roll with Deron and company, but of course they dumped Deron.

With our veteran players - they know and respect Sloan deeply. Who doesn't? Williams himself was saddened and apologetic for his behavior IIRC. He was out of line.

Sloan commands respect and he will make sure he gets it. I like the fact too that he will not cowtow to the press especially the controversy seeking individuals and baiters that follow the team.

Sloan makes too much sense. The old legend alongwith with Nash and Dwight going for their first title. Kobe going for #6. Storybook stuff.
