John Ireland was just reading off the odds from some betting site as to who has the best chance of being our new coach: D'Antoni was leading the pack 2 to 1 followed by Phil. Sloan was further down the list at 11 to 1.

The only way I see us bringing in D'Antoni is if the Buss' are hell bent on a more uptempo Showtime-esque offense. Which isn't too far of a stretch. So with that said, I'd be fine with D'Antoni ONLY if we bring in an assistant who has a track record of lock-down defense...and that end of the court is made just as much of a priority.

You know, I live in the Palm Springs area and 2 weeks ago, I was at Toyota Center for my son's hockey game.

Afterwards, while driving to Howard Hughs Center for lunch, I look to my right, I see a dude in a big pick-up with a surfing sticker and he was looking at me like wtf am I looking at, I waved at him and he smiled and waved back... Told my kid to wave at the dude and he waved back at my 8yo... It was Rambis.

Then when I got to Islands, I walked by a giant old dude, I look up, and there was Phil and Jeanie with some friends. I said, "Oh hi Phil!" He looked, smiled and nodded...

So I'm going to say that was a good omen and Phil will be back to clean this chit up. Bring the band back...

The only problem with an uptempo offense is that we don't have the personnel to run D'Antoni's offense. Moreover, in his offense there has to be knockdown three point shooters to help space the floor. The Lakers don't have that either. I just don't see the fascination with him ... I think he blows.

bringing d'antoni in would be just as bad as brown

this team is too old to run that type of offense, they'll be gassed midway through the game from all the running. i still think sloan is the perfect fit

You can sense that the Lakers are excited about the idea of having D'Antoni who is tight with Nash and Kobe. His offense would certainly be exciting and would bring back shades of Showtime.

2 things: Nash doesn't want to do that all the time any more though and D'Antoni knows nothing about defense. If we brought in MacMillan and got the USA Team Coordinators basically as our coaches... then I'm all in.

Bring in Phil for 2 or 3 years and then make sure Shaw takes over Phil after. They should have just done this in the first place.

With all due respect I don't get the infatuation with Shaw. He was passed over for Mike Brown. Mike "freakin' Brown. Shaw is still in the same place he was a year or so ago: no experience as a HC. Mitch already said that they weren't looking at a coach currently employed.

If the Lakers brass wanted Shaw they would have hired him. That ship has sailed ...

Sloan is my first choice as well. But if they want that uptempo style...Pau is most likely on his way out anyway and D'Antoni is a real possibility. With the way Pau's playing...I wouldn't completely rule it out.

I'd be OK with D'Antoni if they gave him someone to coach defense. D'Antoni has relationships with Kobe and D12 via Team USA and with Nash. So it's not like he's an unknown quantity there.

Jackson will have to adjust his offensive schemes to take advantage of Nash's talents. If he can't do that, I don't want him.

Sloan might be the best fit: he knows defense, p-n-r, motion offense and he would not be afraid of Kobe.

But for goodness' sakes, Baseball Cap Boy MUST clear with Kobe. Not ask Kobe to do the job, but ask Kobe's opinion, what he thinks of the various candidates and to get his buy-in for whoever gets hired.

They are too consumed by the Showtime thing and don't realize we don't need him to make the offense work.

Phil has coached some amazing offenses and he's smart enough to make the adjustments to cater to Nash.

Of course I would be cool with McMillian as well.

Dwight wants Phil!

Dwight Howard has told the Los Angeles Lakers he wants them to bring back Phil Jackson as coach,’ a source close to the team tells SheridanHoops.com.

With the Lakers having fired Mike Brown earlier today, speculation is running rampant about who the next coach will be.

Jackson has been coach of the Lakers on two different occasions, and he remains romantically involved with Jeanie Buss, the daughter of Lakers owner Jerry Buss.

Buss’ son, Jim, is expected to be the person who makes the ultimate decision on who the next coach will be, and the source who spoke to SheridanHoops made it clear that Buss is aware of Howard’s wishes. It remains unclear if Jackson would be interested, but he retains a close relationship with Kobe Bruant and Pau Gasol — two of the players he coached in Los Angeles before leaving the team after the 2010-11 season.
