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.
