A couple people saw this (along the bottom crawl) during ESPN's First and 10 this morning.

What do you think? Does Kurt want that job and would the Lakers want to let him go?

I think Rambis would be an excellent coach. He got a raw deal here in that one aborted stint.

Wow, that would hurt. But it's no secret that he'd like another shot at being a headcoach. It's a great opportunity for him.

I saw the John Ireland interview and he said that he thinks Rambis would be among the top of the Suns list. He didn't say he was the leading canidate.

I dont expect him or Brian Shaw to last too much longer. They will be missed. Id love to see Fish there one day.

I feel bad for anyone inheriting the Suns coaching job.

The team is headed on a downward slide. Think about the respect the new coach will receive from a certain 4 letter word Center.

I think the next Suns coach is essentially being set up to fail. Would be surprised if whoever gets the job lasts more than a couple seasons before the team gets blown up.

Shaq always dissed Rambis after he left in 99, wonder how that would work. Hopefully they patched things up.

Didn't Shaq push Rambis out the door in 1999?

I thought we went with PJ because Shaq said Rambis couldn't handle it?

Wasn't it Shaq that objected the most about Rambis? I wonder how that would be like if they were reunited...

ETA: Oops...did'nt read the entire thread. Looks like my question was answered.

If this is true I will wish Rambis the best (except when he's playing the Lakers of course).

He did get a raw deal in '99, and he deserves another shot at a head coaching job.

Who will be Phil's eventual successor with the Lakers? If the Lakers do go on a championship run, it may be years before we find out. I like rambis, but I'm not so sure i like his odds of getting the nod when that happens.

On a separate note, it would be great to see Kareem get a full-fledged assistant coach position.

has he already been interviewed? is that allowed given the laker season isn't even done yet? if not, how can he be the leading candidate?

...wish him luck with the suns ...even if he knows what the lakers are going to do, he doesn't have the talent on the team to stop them.

I don't think that same policy applies for Assistants. Did'nt Shaw interview for the Bulls HC vacancy a few weeks ago?

I can't see Shaq allowing this. The Suns don't want an angry Shaq. Dan got out in time.

I thought Shaq brings home championships when he is angry.
