We have had, by any measure, a lot of coaching changes over the last several years. Once Phil left in 2011 the floodgates opened. From Brown to Bickerstaff to D'Antoni to Scott to Walton. And now will be another. 6 coaches in 8 years. This team is such a mess most of us don't even recognize them as the Lakers anymore. Like, who is that? Aside from wondering who will next to be led to slaughter, there are other questions. What about assistant coaches? Are any of them still on payroll? Or do they all leave when the head....

Update: Lakers website only shows one remaining assistant coach. Player Development coach Miles SImon (who?), who imo should have been the first to go. We need to pilfer SA's player development pple. Anyways the reason the Lakers kept him is all the other assistants are apparently gone, and they needed to keep someone willing to stay on for pre-draft workouts in case the coaching search drags on.

So in short, the team is even in more of a mess than I thought.

I'm not sure who will be the coach but my heart dropped when I thought they made Mark Madsen the coach....lmao!!!....I had to read a little further and found out he'd been hired as Utah Valley college coach.....whew.

And the beat goes on...

Hiring a coach before deciding on Magic’s replacement? Letting Magic’s No. 2 conduct the search? Lakers, what are you doing?

You can't count Bickerstaff as being coach. He was Interim coach until they found a replacement.

That leaves Brown, D'Antoni, Scott and Walton over 8 seasons.

They have made mistakes with who they brought in, pretty much every coach has had a roster that doesn't fit their coaching philosophy so it's turned out exactly as you would expect it to.
