    Lakers Coaching situation over the years is very.... unique

    Mike Brown got the job by being "presidential" in his meetings, he talked up how he came from the San Antonio/Pop school of hard nosed defense and how his staff successfully utilized a dual big post-up offense. Which was important for Jimmy Buss, considering his hard on for Bynum at the time.

    When that offense failed, Mike Brown brought Eddie Jordan on board and was devoted to installing some Princeton sets. The Lakers gave that 4-5 games before giving him the axe and taking the guy who would best suit Nash's game in D'Antoni. The 2 failed but both were a stark contrast in styles. Now with Byron, they went back to a defensive minded coach who ALSO plans on installing some Princeton sets.


    Now Byron Scott should be an upgrade on Mike Brown, I just find it funny how the Lakers have come full circle so quickly. Has any team fired a coach for installing a system they didn't approve of, try something else, and then decide they liked the original format better. I get the feeling that the Lakers are making moves based on sentiment more than anything.

    16 titles including 5 in the last 12 years and 10 in the last 30, only missing the playoffs 3 times makes you sound silly right now.

    Not trying to diss at all, no doubt Byron is the best choice they've ever come up with. But theres nothing sentimental about this;

    Triangle, Princeton, SSOL, Princeton

    Lakers are trying everything they can gotta give them that.

    I know its a pointless thread but Im always curious if anyone notices somewhat irrelevant **** like that.

    I never noticed this and I quite like the fact that you pointed it out lol.

    This is far more thread worthy than the usual "Something negative about Lebron", "something negative about Kobe", "everything is rigged" or whatever threads are popping up repeatedly now.


    The Princeton offense is a good offense and with the right players can be absolutely deadly. Unfortunately, Lakers don't have those players (imo)

    Scott has been a very solid coach, he's not a bad coach by any measure. But overall I have found him a little underwhelming. Lakers, imo, hired him for three reasons;

    1. He's a Laker guy. He has that history and he's close to Kobe.
    2. Familiarity, he's very much an "old school" coach. Not sure if old school is the right word but he's not pioneering anything new and I doubt he will be doing anything overly "modern" with his coaching methods.
    3. They're hung up on their past.

    That last point is the most important IMO, you're history does not define your future. The Lakers seem very much like they are collectively trapped in the "Kobe era". They don't seem willing to move on and embrace the future and the way the game is changing. That's just my opinion though.


    Has any team fired a coach for installing a system they didn't approve of, try something else, and then decide they liked the original format better.
    Watch this space, Warriors could potentially do this, hopefully not. But it's not impossible.




    The Lakers need to let go of their past if they want to succeed in the future.
