Should MDA be fired?

Yes, he ran Kobe to the ground. Coaches need to control the player's minutes.

No, its not his fault. He was just respecting Kobe's will.

I never was on the Brown train. Ownership wanted to go away from the triangle so Shaw was not going to get the job. So if no triangle, then Adelman was by far the best man for the job. Mitch wanted him, Kobe respected him, he's had an excellent track record coaching big men (Webber & Divac in SAC, Yao Ming & Brad Miller in HOU) and coaching smaller teams (that HOU team that took the Lakers to 7 games in 2009). He can coach defense. He would have been perfect for Gasol as he loves intelligent big men and makes heavy use of them in his schemes. He's forgotten more about ball movement than Brown ever had in his brain. And they passed him over for what? .... Sheesh!

Back to the present ... Larry Brown is a big no. He can coach and he can teach, but he wears teams out and leaves anyway. Plus he's old now like Sloan. I like Sloan, but he's 70 and I'm not convinced he'd like it in LA as he has never struck me as an LA kind of guy.

Best scenario at this point: if MDA is retained, make him take Kurt Rambis to coach defense. He can name his other assistants, but Rambis has to be there for the D. Then somehow or other, Jeannie manages to boot baseball cap boy from the front office and replaces him with Phil. Think Phil and Mitch get along, the combo would work.

If MDA does get fired, SVG might be the best of an ordinary lot if D12 is on board with him. He can coach defense around D12, his time in ORL showed that.

But yes, we are in baseball cap boy's era now ... damn him. I don't think Jeannie will be able to get him out of there by herself, it would probably have to be Jeannie and all of the other siblings ganging up on him. Could get ugly in a hurry if baseball cap boy fights back as I think he would.

I guess the answer will come when the season ticket holders are due to renew. A low turnout may force Jimmy's hand. Till then, we just have to keep our fingers crossed.

I hate to say it but season ticket holders don't operate like this. A lot are loyal fans for many years, and they won't come to this conclusion. IMO Jimmy is the worst thing that's happened to the Lakers over the past 4-5 years, but expecting season ticket holders not to renew is pointless.

The Lakers will always have high high high demand for season tickets. We still have Dwight Howard, we still have Kobe on the payroll, and Steve Nash still isn't going anywhere.

agreed .. plus the main reason they wont drop their tickets is that.. there is a HUUUUGE wait list.. and if they lose their spot who knows when they will get season tickets again

Phil has said he doesn't want to coach. Everyone around Phil says he doesn't want to coach. He doesn't want to deal with the travel and the wear and tear on his body.

That ship hasn't just sailed, it's already reached it's destination and is being decommissioned.

I'd strike that name off the list of coaches to bring in. The coaches available would probably by Jerry Sloan, Larry Brown, Jeff Van Gundy, Brian Shaw, Nate McMillan, Jeff Van Gundy, Stan Van Gundy, Mike Dunleavy, Any of the recently fired coaches.

In order of least likely to most likely available.


I disagree with that.
After nearly two seasons in retirement, Phil Jackson has become increasingly interested in working in the NBA next season, according to sources familiar with his thinking.

That doesn't necessarily mean a return to coaching, as Jackson is known to be intrigued by the concept of moving into management for the first time in his career.

But sources told ESPN.com this week that Jackson is "itching" to go back to work after a long spell to recharge since leaving the Los Angeles Lakers' bench following the 2010-11 season.

Sources stressed that there is no specific opportunity in play yet for Jackson, who resisted coaching overtures from the Brooklyn Nets earlier this season and told longtime confidant Charley Rosen in January in a SheridanHoops.com story that he "has no intention of ever coaching again."

But NBA coaching sources say that stance will not dissuade teams with openings from approaching Jackson this offseason to gauge his interest, with the Nets and Cleveland Cavaliers -- who interviewed Jackson in 2005 and are known to be contemplating a coaching change -- potentially at the top of the list.

What has Jackson really intrigued, sources say, is the opportunity to oversee an organization in the patriarchal style of Pat Riley with the Miami Heat or in a role similar to that previously held by Larry Bird with the Indiana Pacers.

http://espn.go.com/los-angeles/nba/story/_/id/9182468/phil-jackson-itching-return-nbacoach-executive-sources-say
Ramona also went on ESPN LA Radio the day she wrote the column and said it wouldn't be out of the realm of possibility that Pjax decides to coach for 2-3 years and then move into a front office job. Obviously it's mostly "sources" and conjecture, but I honestly think that if the Lakers really want Jackson and present him the right offer he'd be willing to come back to coach for a few years.
I should get an assist for that. It's an intentional pass to oneself, so it's an assist. That way people can't say all I do is shoot.

Yes? All she says is that he would rather be in the front office instead of coaching. She never writes in the article he will never coach again.

So since Kobe went out, our only offense is dump it into the post? :man3:

No Steve Nash elevator doors? Staggered screen? Double screen? To get a wide open 3.

It's amazing how elementary this offense is.

Absolutely. Why in the world would anyone vote no, by the way? Of course he should be fired. He's just an awful fit here and he has been from day one. Is this even a discussion? Is there even one single person at CL besides Rock (sorry, not meant to call you out or anything, just I know you seem to like him) that is in favor of D' Antoni as coach of the Lakers. Seriously? Is there even one other?

Horrible. But then... he has gimpy Nash and now Blake.... that means more Morris+Glock. It's going to get worse.

Even if we were to let bygones be bygones, if Kobe, Dwight don't buy into MDA, the future is lost.
Let's not jeopardize the future, bring a coach that the troop can rally around.
This season is already lost and is behind us, let's not lose another one- time to get Phil on board.

Hire Phil as the President of the Lakers .. Give him along Mitch player personel control .. Hire Brian Shaw as the head coach .. Bring in Rambis and Hammblen as assistants .. Add another assistant (a defensive one) .. And fill the roster with shooters and players that fit the triangle .. The triangle should be our system .. Every successful team has a system and we keep throwing away the one that keeps winning us championships .. We're gonna have Dwight with us the next 5 years and we need a system that features him and that's the triangle

It's bad when after listening to Inside the NBA, I'd gladly take any of the 3 over MDA. Kenny, Chuck, and Shaq all know how to get Dwight the ball better than MDA does.

Getting him the ball isn't the problem most of the time.... it's where he gets it. It's got to be nearly a dunk or nothing it seems. He needs to be on the move IMHO... not posting up on the block...... not his game at all.

Not to mention whenever he's about to get the ball, the 2nd defender will blitz him. SAS don't respect our outside shooting. I cry when MWP, Jamison & Nash missing open shots.

Phil is a money [Swearing is not permitted at Clublakers. You must edit this post prior to submitting.] people. He has no executive skills. He is almost 70 years old with replaced hips and knees. It's over. You actually think Jim is just gonna go, "hey Phil, here is my position, you can have it, and here is 15 mil per". Come on. This team has one more year before the new generation takes over. And that is regardless if Howard stays. So, let Mike D finish next year, if he sucks, fire him, start fresh from top to bottom and thats it.

Kobe's career was cemented the moment he caught Odom's lob. Kobe has nothing else to prove or do.
