Brown's misuse was equally as criminal as his Princeton offense idea.
It's either going to be Phil or D'Antoni, but I have my doubts about MD. I think Phil's first year in LA, he had a lot more mismatched pieces with Glen Rice in the triangle than he would with this unit. Phil loves Howard as is evident every time he talks about him. Gasol can definitely play in it. The real question is Nash, but Phil's a smart enough guy to adjust things to make it work.
It'll be an interesting 48 hours. everything I've read says a coach will be hired far sooner than anyone realizes.
You know more about the Lakers than I do so I trust your opinion. I have no doubts Jackson will get the max out of the team if the sources are correct.
If whoever takes this team deep in the playoffs Brown might be lucky to get a WNBA job.
No matter who they hire they are most likely better than Scott Brooks
