What happen to the days when the lakers gave a young coach a chance like when they hired riley when he was working with chick.

the guy has only had a job when his idiot brother is the HC
he hasn't had any assistant gigs at the NBA level without MDA. apparently he was a high school coach in south carolina for 30 years before joining the suns when his brother took over 9 or so years ago. i'd say there are many better assistant coach options out there but he's not going anywhere as long as MDA is there

It always felt like once the Lakers got rolling a bit they were playing in spite of MDA rather than for MDA as a cohesive unit..... You never really had a sense that he had the reigns and control of the ship. That has all the warning signs, the only thing really protecting him IMO is the mess financially that has a huge sum of money tied up in two mistakes...Brown and MDA. If MDA is here you got to think it will be on a short leash.
