They weren't that bad offensively. Have to remember Nash is out and D12 not fully conditioned yet. The real problems were in the bench, the defense and the rotations. On top of which, his players called him "All Day" last year. Not a good sign.
At least give Baseball Cap Boy credit for sacking his own pick. And that makes him 0-2 at picking coaches (remember he picked Rudy T way back when).
I really, really wanted Adelman for this job when Brown was hired instead. Heck, he was Kobe's next choice after Brian Shaw. But no way to pry him away from Minny anytime soon. D'Antoni has a relationship with Kobe stemming from their time on Team USA and of course we know about him and Nash so that's not a crazy pick.
I'm not liking Jackson this time. It would probably take half the season to re-implement the triangle since the only guys that know it well are 3 of the starters and that's it. Plus the tri is a lousy fit for Nash's talents.
Sloan would be interesting, but dunno if he wants to be in LA. He would certainly not be afraid of Kobe though.
McMillan is interesting, he also has a relationship with Kobe dating back to Team USA.
SVG, nope, good way to run D12 out of town at the end of the season.
Shaw, if Indiana will let him go, maybe.
One thing for sure, Baseball Cap Boy better be running his candidates by Kobe. Gonna need Kobe's buy-in to whoever gets the job.
