Well a younger coach would be willing to be part of a rebuilding process, but a coach of Phil's age isn't interested in starting over, they want to win now... which is what I was saying.. so it's the equivalent of ring chasing for older players.. there's a reason Ray Allen went to the Heat, and it wasn't for the beach...

Phil doesn't ring chase. It would be ring chase if Mike Brown led the Lakers to a title before getting fired or leaving on his own and then Phil taking over.

Phil will just continue where the left off and get that bad taste out of his mouth of the 2011 sweep.

Yup, mix-and-match the triangle with the P&R. Steve will play the Fish role. Remember how many wide open looks Fish used to get from the Triangle?

Now imagine Nash getting those looks and knocking down those 3's with more regularity and consistency. :drool:

I think Phil will mix it up. Some P&R (as just teaching the triangle without a training camp, the Lakers may need some offensive sequences of just Nash setting everyone up).

Of course he takes stacked teams, and what makes him so great is that just about every single time he has the most talented team, he capitalizes. 13 finals appearances and 11 titles. People act like just because his teams are stacked, a monkey could lead those teams. Not the case. Not in a sport like basketball.

True.

Next time anyone says PJ didn't earn his titles, just say two words: Mike + Brown.

He had a completely stacked roster and couldn't do anything with it except make a mess.

It is widely known that lately Phil wanted to explore basketball beyond the triangle. He wants to mess around with it and see what else he can implement.

Phil will find a way to incorporate Nash into the triangle.

This is tough for me to call. Phill is the best at mind games and getting players motivated. He is the best all time. Phil took the Lakers to back2back titles with far less talent. So Nash being a HUGE 3 pt threat and Howard being the best Center i dont see how he doesnt get the job done. He is a genius and will make that team amazing.

IMO, Kobe (leans towards Phil but would respect D'Antoni) and Nash (leans towards D'Antoni but would respect Phil) are the 2 geezers, and so it comes down to 1 player...


Dwight Howard, and anything to give this team a better chance of winning the title this yr and keeping him long-term. He has said he wants Phil, and dammit we will get him!

I can see Dantoni. He has the respect of Nash and Kobe, his suns teams were underrated defensively and should have won the championship that year Horry knocked out Nash.

He'd be an upgrade, but I would prefer both Sloan and PJ over him.

If PJ can come back, figure out a way to incorporate Nash, and groom a successor while he's here for two years(then leaves along with Kobe and Pau) then I think that's the best scenario.

I'll take Nate McMillan or PJ.

The bench has looked horrible because of Brown. Hill, Jamision, Blake, and Meeks are all pretty good if you play them the right way. The looked pretty good without Brown coaching against Golden State last night. Also, the Lakers looked far from "old" too...the other thing people have been saying.

Its just really a matter of playing with energy and fun...like any team. The Lakers are a big older and will have some down nights because of it though. Like any older team.

D-Leethal
11-10-2012, 01:42 PM
Phil openly admits his in-game philosophy is to 'stay out of the way'. He uses timeouts more for recooperating mentally and physically than to restrategize. He doesn't call plays. Hes not a hands-on coach in games but he definitely preaches and teaches everyday in practice and his fair share during games.
