...i'm sorry, but that would be the most incredible thing. Kobe still with us? Life after death?! Fisher as his main confidant?! Thats story book stuff right there (if they win of course).
Mamba would be a great coach imo. It would be a situation where his cataclysmic ego would subside - because he literally CANNOT enter the game. He'd be a level headed strategist - but a volcano under the ice. Plus, the guy knows bball as well as anyone in history.
