While Kobe Bryant taking over as a player-coach (it worked for Bill Russell in the late 1960s) is a fun to dream about, there are quite a few attractive options available to the Lakers. Presumably, none of them will try to institute the Princeton offense.
In a brief statement on Brown's firing, the Lakers revealed that assistant coach Bernie Bickerstaff will be the interim coach but the search for a permanent replacement "will begin immediately."
Who do you think the next Lakers coach should be?
