We all know that he was one of the worst Laker head coaches in his brief stint, but now as the Lakers defensive coordinator or assistant, do we have to acknowledge that he is the worst Laker defensive coordinator ever?
I mean, unless he is telling these guys "go out there and TANK," or unless he is deliberately altering schemes to allow more points in order to help us tank... then this guy is a freakin' paperweight yo. He's a freakin' turkey of the highest order.
And this brings up another good point: are we tanking, or are we not tanking? The local radio folks, from Ireland to Shelbourne and all the way around, seem really ambivalent about it. Sometimes they think we are tanking and it's like "hey, no big deal" and we need the draft pick but then sometimes it's all fire and brimstone and "Magic is totally right" and "we need to bring back Phil"... but... We should just get it straight whether we are intentionally tanking right now or whether we are trying to win games and failing. It makes a difference.
To me, it seems obvious that we are INTENTIONALLY TANKING. That is, we are intentionally losing games while still improving the team and cultivating the players.
The Laker team on Xmas day was a potential playoff bubble team, and I am 100% sure that these Lakers could be at or above .500 if we weren't tanking.
