Dell Harris probably should get a mention as well.

Had a roster of:

Nick Van Exel
Young Kobe
SHAQ
Eddie Jones
Rick Fox
Robert Horry
Dennis Rodman
DFish
Elden Campbell

Which later he pushed for a trade for Eddie Jones and Elden Campbell for Glen Rice and JR Reid. Where Duncan completely obliterated Reid.


BS. Old Delmer was a solid coach. The Lake Show was an overachiever.


Maybe for some X’s and O’s But he got out coached quite a bit. Also lost all the respect from Jerry,Shaq and Kobe that’s why Phil was brought in immediately.


If being out coached is your criteria...I guess you voted for Luke.



Didn’t vote yet it’s still up in the air for me.

But yeah Luke hasn’t been the greatest.

You’re forgetting the Kurt Rambis coaching era in-between Del and Phil and misremembering other.

Ahh that’s right! Shaq really lost respect for Del and when Kurt came in it went extra negative

I also remember Dennis Rodman arguing with Kurt quite a bit as well

Kobe ruined Kobe.

In MDA’s first game as coach, Kobe waved off a substitution.

That was the thing with Kobe. He did it his way. And most of the time, that was great.

You also had a "losing records 2 years" criteria and promptly contradicted it by including D'Antoni.

So I'll keep Hamblen on this illustrious list of coaches even if it's not playing by your rules

Pringles had a 67-87 record, what's wrong with you?

MDA got a lot out of what he had.

Luke arguably the least.

Scott was just inept.


Lakers were stacked with Dwight Pau Kobe Artest Nash and we had a legit bench Jamison Blake and he almost didn't make the playoffs.


MDA was horrible for that stacked team.

In all fairness Byron wasn't a good fit for the young guns and post Achilles Kobe

Luke was ok last year with the young guns and was going to have a tough time with the dirty dozen this year before the injuries smacked the team.

MDA - by a mile.

Your lineup is a little off. Dennis Rodman didn’t play under Del.

I had a chance to meet Del Harris, really nice guy, but I agree. Del Harris was infuriating as our coach with that team. Especially with how he would keep Kobe on the bench for extended periods of time and in critical situations. Kobe was electric, even as a youngster back then.

That lineup is ridiculously good if harnessed properly, as Phil Jackson basically proved a year later. We’ve had bad coaches, but when you have a team like that anything less than competing in a championship series is a true failure.

Yup.
I'm too young to remember Pfund, so I'm voting for Byron Scott

Dull Harris was horrible.

Pfund was no fun.

I don't miss the No D Antoni era either.

Byron Scott, how easy we forget how bad he was. His best attribute was that he was able to guarantee each team he coached a top 3 pick.

That's what he was asked to do.

I'd like to punch Antoni in his face after he told us to go root for another team so it's him for me. But let's not forget Del Harris might have cost us a championship with the Nick Van Exel debacle, and Mike Brown, although a nice guy, is a horrible coach.
