Kobe Wants To Help Decide Lakers New Coach

Ultimate Sports Talk May 11, 2014 Comments Off on Kobe Wants To Help Decide Lakers New Coach


If Kobe had his way, he would be the coach of the Lakers, but for now he wants some input according to Pro Basketball Talk via Dave McMenamin of ESPN Los Angeles.

Bryant hopes the Lakers will sing a different tune than they have in the past when it comes to consulting him about hiring a coach.

“On the last two they didn’t,” Bryant said, referring to Mike Brown and D’Antoni, who both failed to endure the length of the initial contracts they signed with the Lakers before parting ways. “On the third one, I’m hoping they do.”

I see Kobe’s angle, but in the end I think the Lakers are going to leave him out of it.
