Whos the Lakers next Head coach

Whos the Lakers next Head coach? Phil Jackson has said before that this is his last year,So if he does retire who will be their next head coach. My guess is either Coach K or Larry Brown. I think if Coach K gets the all-times wins record in college basketball than maybe he will finally take the jump to the nba. kobe loves him,hes coach team usa,& the lakers are the favorite to win the championship & might have won 3 in a row when this choice will be made. Than Larry Brown is a Hall of fame coach & now not coaching any teams & it seems like a larry brown move. What do you think\Who else do you think could be a canidate?

I wonder if they'll stay

I wonder if they'll stay in-house and make it Brian Shaw? I don't know though, but he's a probable candidate. He knows the triangle better than anyone on the Lakers coaching staff, according to those close to the organization.

Coach K has been turning down

Coach K has been turning down NBA offers for 15 years (including the Lakers), I don't think he's gonna make the jump to a professional coach in his 60's. I was just watching his post game press conference after passing Dean Smith on the all time wins list and he seems very content coaching at Duke and the Men's National team. I really don't think he cares about the all-time wins record nor do I think that would have any bearing on him going to the NBA. I just don't think it will happen.

If Kobe was younger and in

If Kobe was younger and in his prime years (26-28), I could see Coach K coming to coach the Lakers, but like someone said, he's content where he is. I'd love to see him coach in the NBA even though that will never happen. It sucks that Kobe's prime years were wasted.

IMO I think they will go with a younger coach and Brian Shaw just seems like the likeliest coach...... I'm not sure if Brown will return to coaching at all.

Well seeing as though both

Well seeing as though both Jerry Buss and Mitch Kupchak have both been on record as saying they would like to keep the triangle even after the Phil Jackson era. PJ has already made small comments through the media emplying Brian Shaw would be the coach. He's been prepared through many road games last year. The only other candidate i could see would be Rambo if he were to be fired from Minny. Guessing the coaching staff will stay in tact for the most part. I have my own theories on the whole situation though. My gut tells me that PJ won't fully leave the team as he will more than likely get a job in the F/O and stay along as a Special Assistant Coach for Shaw to look to in time of need similar to the way PJ has always done with Tex Winter. It's an in house family type thing.

There was talk after the end

There was talk after the end of last season that was going to be Phil's year in LA...And there was rumors that Byron Scott was waiting to get that job...But Phil decided to return and Scott took the Cavs job..So maybe Byron has been told the job is his,once Phil retires...Then Brian Shaw might be in line..

Tom Izzo might look for a nba job....

id thought it would be rambo then scott

for years it looked rambo was the coach in waiting then he leaves so it looked like scott would be next in line but he just sgined the deal with cavs so its looking like shaw he knows the team so well including the triangle and hes in that mold of the good nba player who turns out too be a great nba coach like doc rivers rudy tom phil j fits that mold as well no way coach k takes this job it was before and he turned it down when kobe was younger so no way he takes it now so my pick would be brian shaw and imo its a great choice

Brian Shaw does seem the

Brian Shaw does seem the smart pick, and Rambis hasn't been impressive enough in Minny to get the reins so I think he's out of the running altogether. I don't know how wise it is to use the triangle after Kobe retires, it has only really been successful with a dominant wing player, i.e. Jordan and Kobe who can bail out bad possessions. They need to start looking to the future and either drafting or signing the next Laker sensation to take over from Kobe.

Brian Shaw would seem to be the most likely candidate if they kept it in house and maybe Kurt Rambis returns as a senior Assistant Coach.

Does anyone else think the

Does anyone else think the Lakers are about 2 years away from being very mediocre?

If they dont bring in a high profile coach and KB and Gasol continue to go down hill, they arent going to be all that great in 2-3 years.

Could LA go back down the

Could LA go back down the Coach K well again?

Like, If Coach K wins another title and breaks the all time wins record at Duke....could he go and conquer the NBA and join LA?
