I really think the Lakers should have thought about all of this stuff during the off-season, instead of right now.

He's gonna walk in there deflect each others ego's. Maybe host a yoga session. The team will slowly come together like they would have anyway and Phil will get all the credit. . .

i kind of want dantoni more. dantoni and nash played together for years and now they have a better roster to get it done.

i know phil and kobe been playing also together but i rather dantoni because their offence will come more from nash being the court general rather than triangle in the post

Phil Jackson's an idiot. He left the Lakers and said he wasn't coming back. Now when they have the 2nd most talent in the league next to Miami he wants the job all of a sudden.

He's a good coach but not a great one. He's been in the best situations any coach in history has ever had and when he had just Kobe to work with in the mid 2000s they sucked.

I have much more respect for the Heat after this considering they didn't can Spoelstra after 5 games and go out and get Phil Jackson.

Phil needs to go away or come back and coach a team that will actually give him a challenge. He's like Robert Horry at this point - collecting championships as a sideshow of the team.

This doesn't change anything, execpt LAL Fans if they lose will have some funny excuses. LAL has a talented team maybe even more talented then Miami. They will be a top 2-3 team out west, but I like the way teams can match up with them. OKC is still my pick out west, but just look at all the talented teams out west it isn't going to be a cake walk for the Lakers when you have teams like the Spurs, Okc, Spurs Clippers,Nuggets,Grizz, and hell even a healthy Dallas with Dirk back If mayo contuines to do this they might be a threat. Its going to be a rough west playoffs but it should be a great show.

Wishful thinking there. Miami will be playing a team from LA in the finals, tho it probably won't be the lakers.

If lebron leaves, he leaves, i'll get over it. Pat riley has done a great job over the past 17 years.

I don't think that's what happened. I think Romana Shelbourne summed it up pretty nicely.

She basically said that they wanted to give Mike this 6 game stretch to see how he does. But then Dr. Buss in all likelihood was like "if we're all thinking that this is possibly what's going to happen, why not do it now?".

So they just got it done earlier. The team started 1-12 if you include preseason under Mike Brown. The players don't understand the offense and the defensive schemes are just not there yet. Might as well just do it sooner then later.

The only reason I don't want Phil Jackson is because the triangle takes time to learn and the only ones who know the system are Bryant and Gasol.

I don't know if I like the idea of Dantoni being the coach, but the offense would be fun to watch

If the reports of a meeting between Jackson and the Lakers taking place last week are true, im guessing PJax told them to get it done sooner rather than later if they wanted him, because it was going to take him awhile to teach the new players the triangle.

So you really think that Vinny Del Negro will outcoach Phil Jackson?


The only coaches to have beat Phil in his tenure as Lakers coach are Gregg Popovich, Larry Brown, Mike D'Antoni (twice, when the Lakers were a mediocre team both times), Doc Rivers, and Rick Carlisle (who has always been a stud of a coach dating back to his Pacer days).


Are you seriously putting Vinny Del Negro in that group?

After watching PJ sit on his *** vs that dallas team and make 0 adjustments for 4 games, it wont surprise me. Not to mention VDN does nothing, CP3 runs that team and with the depth on the clippers i can easily see them making it to the finals.

Just because you have some good players, doesn't mean much. outside of kobe, dwight, nash and pau there is nothing there. One of the worst benches in the league, right up there with detroit and cleveland.

Jackson makes all the sense in the world. He knows how to manage the different personalities without being trampled on. He's not hitching his ride to the Lakers-they need someone like him to get them straightened out.
D'Antoni makes sense to a certain extent because of Nash, but he's never been known to preach defense over offense. Fun to watch, but what does it win in the long run?

Um no, the fact is nobody can slow Paul down, Paul can carry teams. Paul has talent, have you seen that bench??? Crawford is on a role, it would be a cool matchup. Its funny how you think a coach is going to win you things, I guess by that Logic Brooks>Pop I mean Okc did beat the spurs last yer/

Yeah that is what I don't get. The triangle takes the ball out of his hands, but he is the best offensive Playmaker they have, Its going to be interestng for sure, I think on offense letting Nash control the ball would make them really scary.

They are probably hoping his buddy over in Memphis will give them Rudy Gay for Metta, Steve Blake and Jodie Meeks at the deadline since SF is the only position they aren't stacked at.

I personally do not think Griffin, Jordan, and Butler are "great" players yet. Just good to very good. To me they only have one great player. Great players make a difference. The Spurs have 2-3, the Heat 3-4, the Lakers 3-4. See what I mean?

But if the Clippers get on a role at the right time in the playoffs you never know. If Billups is healthy and making big shots that might help.

Blake has to prove himself. You can throw out the "top 5 pf" stuff all you want but there were many forwards in the league I would have rather had them in the playoffs last year. In order for his type of game to work he has to keep that motor up really high OR hit the jumper like its a layup. I know he's been working on his game and jumper so we'll see. He's obviously a good player to have on your team but is he the go to offensive player in the playoffs? Or is that Paul like last year?

He's a good coach but not a great one. He's been in the best situations any coach in history has ever had and when he had just Kobe to work with in the mid 2000s they sucked.

This doesn't change anything, execpt LAL Fans if they lose will have some funny excuses. LAL has a talented team maybe even more talented then Miami. They will be a top 2-3 team out west, but I like the way teams can match up with them. OKC is still my pick out west, but just look at all the talented teams out west it isn't going to be a cake walk for the Lakers when you have teams like the Spurs, Okc, Spurs Clippers,Nuggets,Grizz, and hell even a healthy Dallas with Dirk back If mayo contuines to do this they might be a threat. Its going to be a rough west playoffs but it should be a great show.

Pretty sure there was a time in Lebrons 1st season in Miami where him & Wade weren't happy w/ coach Spo. Every Heat fan was cursing him out & requesting for Riles to step down frm the office & back to the bench.

The big difference here is the age factor of Kobe & Nash. They have a 2 yr window & Brown was just wasting time.

Why do you care if a team wants a coach like Phil back! Lebron after all ran to Wade & Bosh which is worse than your criticism about LA wanting Phil back.

Aside from our starting five challenging the Heats five, roster depth is not even close.

Metta < Lebron
Kobe > Wade
Pau > Battier
Howard > Bosh
Nash ( so far this season) = Chalmers

Allen > Blake
Lewis > Jamison
Miller > Ebanks
Cole = Morris
Haslem = Hill
J.Anthony > Sacre
Jones = Meeks
T.Harris = Dohun
Harlleson = DJO

Oh god, don't even suggest to these homer Heat fans that Kobe is better than Wade. Kobe could average 35 ppg, 8 apg, 8 rpg, on a fg% of .75 and they would still say Wade is better.

What kind of statement is that? By your logic, you are saying Michael Jordan needed Phil Jackson to play his best. Also, what's so impressive with joining up with two all stars in their primes? Lebron was compelled to win a championship at that point. Now, he has arguably the best 3pt shooter of all time on his side.

Phil Jackson's an idiot. He left the Lakers and said he wasn't coming back. Now when they have the 2nd most talent in the league next to Miami he wants the job all of a sudden.

He's a good coach but not a great one. He's been in the best situations any coach in history has ever had and when he had just Kobe to work with in the mid 2000s they sucked.

THE most talent for one

1) Well if you're so blind that you're going to believe everything the media tells you, then you simply can't be helped. Spo was never on the hot seat at any point in '10, and LBJ and Wade were never pissed at Spo at any point either. Just another case of the blind leading the blind.

2) Fans will always be fans. It's short for fanatic. If you truly understood this concept, then you wouldn't bring it up in this situation because it simply has little to no place here.

3) Let me ask you something. Had LeBron had anywhere near the quality coach, front office, and supporting cast around him, do you think he would've "ran" to Wade & Bosh? Kobe/Phil never had to go through 6-7 years with crappy talent in LA. Why you're even trying to compare the two situations is unfathomable to me. But hey, a spoiled fanbase who believes his favorite player or teams FO can do no wrong isn't a surprise.

Top five 2011-2012 Season:

1. Lebron
2. Durant
3. CP3
4. Howard
5. Kobe

Kobe was still first team All NBA last year and Wade wasn't. Kobe was All NBA defensive second team and Wade wasn't. Wade also missed 25% of the season. Wade's ts% wasn't all that much better than Kobe's either for you to even make an an efficiency argument. Even PSD voted Kobe the 5th best player in the NBA last season. Looks like it's only you and the Heat fan base that disagree. ESPN had Kobe as teh 6th best player in the NBA last season only because they completely overrated Rose by giving the 5th spot to him. Everyone knows that ESPN ranking Rose the 5th best in the NBA was all due to media hype and politics. Kobe's true place was at 5 and Wade behind him at 6.

Phil Jackson's an idiot. He left the Lakers and said he wasn't coming back. Now when they have the 2nd most talent in the league next to Miami he wants the job all of a sudden.

And that makes him an idiot because?

He stepped down because he needed a knee replacement, and wasn't mobile enough to coach with high activity. He had the surgery in March.


He's a good coach but not a great one. He's been in the best situations any coach in history has ever had and when he had just Kobe to work with in the mid 2000s they sucked.

'Sucked' is a description usually reserved for lottery teams. Those 2006 and 2007 Lakers made the playoffs under Jackson. The 2005 Lakers did not make the playoffs, and Jackson was not their coach. Perhaps you mean to say that the 2005 Lakers, with out Jackson, who missed the playoffs- sucked.

I dont know if he will lead, there are some centers out there that get great shots, but ray has been more than impressive so far. i think he will be right around 50% from 3.

but whats most impressive is what he is contributing besides the 3 ball, he is playmaking and hitting some really tough shots off the dribble and he has been clutch for us(a game winner and he help seal the deal last night with a minute left)

his defense is what it is but he has been a great pick up so far and much better than terry.

Also, didn't Miami basically force SVG to quit and Pat Riley stepped in? They went on to win a championship in 2006 after SVG stepped down. Guess they are the same way?

I also don't think Spo is not as bad as people think. He runs a good defensive scheme and his decision to go small is what ultimately led the Heat to the championship. That's not my point though.

I simply don't see how Michael Jordan winning with Phil Jackson or Kobe winning with Phil Jackson is less impressive than Lebron winning with Spo. Every championship team are different and all of them had to go through different circumstances to win it all. You are not taking to account the talent of those teams, the strength of their playoff runs, the health of those teams. Not to mention the health of other teams and the length of seasons etc...

Well it's clear you have no idea what you're talking about considering we've been a competitive franchise for over a decade. This year marks our 25th anniversary. All this shows is that you don't know how to handle criticism from outside fan bases, which can't be helped considering the Lakers have been a franchise that's been very successful and catered to. It's even gotten to a point where you have to take petty shots at the Miami just because you can't handle your team being question and criticized for mismanagement. Oh well. It can't be helped.

On topic, Phil Jackson has all the leverage here. If I were him, I would just enjoy my retirement personally, but if he really wants to coach again he should just ask for as much as he pleases. The Lakers will bow down to his whim, and considering the mess they put themselves in I wouldn't blame them.

look up the reasons behind it. it was explained quite clearly. wade plays better when he's angry and he was struggling in that game after just getting his knee drained. spo pushed his buttons to try and fire him up, but wade said his frustration boiled over since he knew he couldn't respond on the court the way he usually would since his knee wouldn't allow it.

as a heat fan i'll admit i wasn't too crazy about spo that first year with the big 3 and even at times during last season. but now i'm liking what i see out of him. he himself admitted that he cost the heat the title the first year by trying to play a traditional center and point guard even though they were trash, instead of embracing the teams versatility like he does now. he regrets not figuring it out sooner he said as much, but now that he has i'm on board with him.

More likely it is accepted but they can't say that because Phil isn't ready yet (he probably needs to get prepared for the job and get things in his life in order). He needs Bikerstaff to coach 1-2 more games before he's ready so they cannot announce a change yet.

I hate when SPO gets any credit. It took him 2 years (deep in the playoffs) to figure out to space the floor. Use the strengths of your team? Good thinking. It seemed like it fell in his lap instead of him thinking about it. He basically just had to "get out his own way". He finally did.

This is the best case scenario. Apparently Phil "likes" this team, which says a lot(even with a PG in Nash and a weak bench).
He signs a 2 year deal, brings aboard some of his assistants, and gives this team a better chance to win now all the while grooming an heir for when he departs for good(which has been discussed). When his two years are up, he'll leave with Kobe and Gasol ushering in a new era for the franchise.

He's gonna walk in there deflect each others ego's. Maybe host a yoga session. The team will slowly come together like they would have anyway and Phil will get all the credit. . .

I'm convinced that you haven't seen a single laker game this season, and the sad thing is that the lakers played the mavericks game 1.

I usually like to stay neutral, but if this happens. I'm rooting against the Lakers so much. Just ridiculous what they get away with. Classless.

i kind of want dantoni more. dantoni and nash played together for years and now they have a better roster to get it done.

i know phil and kobe been playing also together but i rather dantoni because their offence will come more from nash being the court general rather than triangle in the post

You're right to want him more than Phil. Nash would actually be relevant with dantoni, unlike with Phil. Not to mention the lakers play absolutely no defense (beside's Artest) so why not try to outscore opponents with the firepower they have and dantoni's uptempo offense.

Phil remains top choice but his demands in today's meeting were steep: travel restrictions 4 road games, & increased say in bball decisions

He probably never wants to see jim buss near the lakers facility and have say in decision making. Things are getting interesting.


Phil's demands could be obstacle to hiring. If he wants all bball power, I don't think he gets that from Jim Buss.

Not sure what you mean. They fired an incompetent coach and now they're goin after the best coach possible. If anything they're the epitome of what a sports franchise should be.

Fair point, they admitted they ****ed up, and are now hoping PJ can save what is currently a lakers team in last place.

This team doesn't need saving. They just need to play up to their potential and they should be good enough to represent the west in the finals. And Phil is the man that should get them uptown that level.

Seems like the job is still Phil's if he wants it. Dantoni is a good plan B.

Dantoni is not a good backup plan. Dantoni needs a steve nash in his prime to run the offense he wants them to run. Could you imagine Kobe's face when the coach says hey Pau why dont you and nash run a pick and roll.
