Coach K to the Lakers?? Come On...




 

ESPN reporting once again that Coach K will not leave Duke for the Lakers.

"Five years ago, Krzyzewski was courted by the storied franchise before he ultimately turned down a reported $40 million offer and stayed at Duke."  ...  " 'I will never leave Duke until I leave coaching.' "

40 million clams ... come on. Coach K got the kind offer Pitino couldn't say "no" to and said N-O. That's capital N and capital O. I'm sure they'll keep on fishing for someone to assume the reigns out in wacky LA. Who else might be on that list? Anyone think coach Cal may jump to the NBA once again if the stars line up right for him? Oh, I don't think he's going anywhere soon - but someday?

Who will run the Lakers on the road while Jackson stays in LA? Rick got the keys to the Celtics and the proceeded to crash and burn - and then to the 'Ville ... eech!! The basketball gods can be so cruel.

So maybe the Lakers will go after Roy Williams ... after all, he said goodbye to Kansas with a good thing going on. Players kind of coach ... they offered 40 million 5 years ago what's the going rate today? The NBA is tough place to play ... a good guy from my High School was cut after only one year on the job .. and he made the playoffs. (Michael Curry @ Detroit). The NBA will chew you up and spit you out. It is a no mistakes business - you're off - you're out. Is there a college coach willing to take that challenge? Maybe not with a small market NBA team, but with the Lakers?

For now it looks like Kurt Rambis with Phil on Speed Dial ... hope he's got the Verizon Network! hee hee  LOL :)
