Over. I believe in the man.
Here’s to some stability for a change. Time to rise from the ashes.
I'm certainly not against it. I want to make the playoffs again some day.

Wouldn't that be something. It's been so long...

The thought that went through my head when I saw this was "if Jerry said this prior to the hiring, I wonder if they would have offered him?"

The Lakers sure are making a run at the Suns title for the most inept front office.

How do you screw up with both of your top two choices? :lol:

They were "surprised" Monty chose Phoenix. Then they can't even get Lue. :lol:

It's even worse. Sounds like they were going to force him into taking Thibs & Kidd(who they interviewed for HC) as assistants, only wanted to give him 3 yrs, and the deciding opposition were Kurt and Linda Rambis. Seriously, why do they have any say?

I was going to post it but I figured one of y'all had already. It's a great little article, I hope he projects to what Colangelo thinks he will. I'm really pulling for a homerun.

I am enjoying how badly managed the Lakers are turning out to be. Schadenfreude at its finest.

Once again, I have to wonder if D’Antoni is going to be available.

Why? Tell me which available coach would've done any better.

Why would they fire Mike D? They had another successful season. If they could keep Harden from gaining 15 lbs every summer, they would be the 1 seed in the West every year.

That isn't their problem. Their problem is they have a top 5 player on the planet, but the next best player on the team is a 33 year old PG way on the down side of his career, and after that nobody is even close to being in consideration for the hall of fame. Gerald Green played nearly 1500 minutes for them this year. Their "great" young center can't play in the playoffs and they are stuck with PJ Tucker playing 20% of his time at Center.

The team on the other side has 5 likely HOF members playing together.

The Rockets screwed themselves by going all in on CP3 with his most recent contract because then they went out and tried to find bargain role players.

They were lucky Austin Rivers was available to be signed mid season. Think about that.

Morey should lose his job before MDA.

Vogel was the third coach to be offered the Lakers coaching job. Monty Williams and Ty Lue both rejected the Lakers' offers.
Now Woj is claiming the Lakers did offer Monty the job?
