Didn't read the article because I don't plan on the hassle of all that on my phone. But why not?

From the article:
At this point I think my preference would be to hire Mark Jackson. I don't know if he is interested in the job or not since he refused to comment about the job a couple days ago."The Lakers have decided they need a coach with previous NBA coaching experience, which means one thing for Derek Fisher: He isn't a candidate.
The Lakers think Fisher will be a solid NBA coach or executive at some point, but their initial curiosity about him has been replaced by a desire for actual experience, the latest turn in a deliberately slow coaching search approaching the six-week mark."
It was expected, since their two previous mistakes, they at least don't want to hire a rookie coach.
Let Fish be an assistant here or elsewhere and one day he'll be ready to take over.
Oh well Byron Scott is still my favorite candidate
It's going to be Scott or Hollins.
He's prolly Knicks bound anyways.
Thank God, what a horrible move that would have been. Hollins and Scott are the only two candidates I find even remotely acceptable at this point and I can't say I'd be overly excited about either of them.

I think Fisher will be a great coach someday in the NBA… but I don't understand why these players are not going the Asst coach route anymore (ie. Jason Kidd)… guys like Bryan Shaw put in their dues on the bench as an Asst and are groomed to be coaches.
... You know you got a good DVR... whenever you hit pause on your remote during the action and it displays its favorite player....
Lakers also have interest in Mike Brown and Isaiah Thomas.
Personally, I was hoping the janitor was right - Scott as coach, Fish as Dir. Player Dev. (where he could maybe become the understudy to Mitch).
Just goes to show: never trust a janitor-as-source story.
