Former NBA player Etan Thomas has some interesting insights into the silliness that has come to define the search for a new head coach of the Los Angeles Lakers. It appears that the Lakers are doing all they can to ruin the last few years that Kobe Bryant has left:
1. It was reported that Mitch Kupchak called Phil Jackson in the middle of the night (after telling him that he had until Monday to make a decision) and told him that when it comes to the Los Angeles Lakers you will — dramatic pause and Maury Povich voice — not be the new head coach. Hasn’t Phil Jackson earned the right to be treated with a little more respect than that?
