    I wouldn't be surprised. He might be expensive but Lakers are already invested in millions plus I don't think coach salary counts towards the salary cap anyways.

    I would love to see Phil back for one last run, quite honestly.

    *edit*


    I think Phil wanted somewhere around $11m per year? Could be expensive but I agree they may just go all out (hopefully)

    Plus they really do need to win this year or get very close to it to get Howard to stay.

    Tonight's game will be interesting to see what they do against the Warriors sans head coach

    Hopefully Sloan can handle it, plus Kobe will keep him in check because you know he'll slap him upside his head if fucks up with his ring.

    $10 they've already called Phil, Sloan, D'Antoni, and probably fucking Larry Brown already.

    I find it really hard to believe they fired Brown without already having a pretty good idea with who's replacing him.

    i don't know about sloan guys. i love him and i love the way his teams play, but if folks were bitching about brown's princeton offense, with all of its flexibility and options, what are they going to be doing when sloan tries to institute that old-school highly patterned offense utah always ran. that always seemed to be a perfect offense for a team with a lot of athletes and not a lot of stars (and yes i know they had karl and stockton), but when you've got a lot of really smart, really gifted athletes like kobe, gasol, howard and nash, i'm not sure it's the perfect fit.
    phil could probably be talked into it for the money ... i think the way his career ended is a sore point for him (i've got a friend in the organization ... have heard that), and there's nothing the big guy likes better than riding in to the rescue.

    I think Nash is perfect for Sloans system and Pau & Howard could benefit from that, especially Pau. Kobe will have to adapt again but at his age, he really should be making that transition (though the slump is bringing out the old Kobe back out) anyways.


    That death stare by Kobe is very powerful though. :lol:

    If I was the Lakers' front office, I would book a flight to Durham, North Carolina, with lots and lots of money in tow. Unlikely they'll be able to pull that off, but stranger things have happened.
