Of course some of those are debatable but just my opinion.....Furthermore, it's been said that familiarity with the players is very important, and you can bet your bottom dollar that Kobe is going to have a lot of input.
How is Don Nelson better than Adelman when Adelman has been to the NBA Finals twice???

Maybe because the Trailblazers in the early 90's > the teams Nelson coached? It's all debatable really... alot of factors play into it, but I'm inclined to think the guys I listed are your better coaches in the last 20 years, Adelman included. Rank them in whatever order floats your boat.

looks like mike "i throw the ball to lebron" brown will be the next coach of the lakers.
i wonder if the lakers management thinks he can give them some insite into how to play lebron or if they really think he is good enough to coach the lakers.

According to csnbayarea.com, former San Antonio Spurs assistant coach Mike Brown will be named head coach of the Los Angeles Lakers:

Brown, the former coach of the Cleveland Cavaliers, will be named the new coach of the Los Angeles Lakers, according to two league sources.

If true, Brown will have some pretty large shoes to fill with Phil Jackson retiring from the NBA. However, he does have an exceptional coaching resume.

Interesting choice.... he's more or less a defensive coach, but really the Cavs weren't the best gauge of his talents as an offensive strategist, because that team was built specifically around Lebron's talents.

Bumping this thread from 2 years ago because it's kinda interesting to read the comments in hindsight.

I really don't see any coach fixing the fundamental problem which is a VERY old high-mileage team with no bench to spare them the abuse of the 82-game season.

If Dwight walks, they might have the worst record in the NBA next year.

You and I agree there. I also agree with mathguy that its not a coaching issue as much as an age/wear issue BUT adelmann would IMO have been the best coach for the job that was available.

Adelman is a very underrated coach who has mostly been handed teams which were good but never truly great. Much has been made about Rick being Phil Jackson's biotch in the postseason, but Phil only hitched himself to teams which were already winners, while Adelman builds teams from the ground up (which he is doing again in Minnesota). Hopefully he is recognized as being on the same level as a Jerry Sloan when he retires, despite likely never coaching a champion.
