Im a fan of hiring veteran experienced coaches as assistants, specifically ones who’s head coaching career is behind them. Nice hire.

I don't see how this is a bad thing. Much better than the inexperienced staff that has been on the sidelines the last few years.

On a related note, Woj got this way before anyone, a good ten minutes which is an eternity now-a-days.

Guessing they’re really trying to get Woj on their side right now.

Well it's interesting... I'll give them that...

I kind of can't look at them all without picturing the words 'future fired' below their names... I think we should start a lottery about who will be the first Lakers coach fired, or forced to quit.

They like veterans who actually played in the NBA like Kidd. But unlike Jason at least he did good with one team just like Vogel but unfortunately just like Frank, their former team didn’t crumble when they left while both if them failed and got fired the last time they head coached.

This coaching staff is a real volatile mix. Too many cooks in the kitchen. Expect drama.

It could just be Hollins agent having a better relationship with Woj.

Whoa so Kidd might eat Vogel then Hollins might eat kid?
I think Rob and the Rambii are drunk on Game of Thrones still or they are employing "project coaching darwinism"

I don't mind this as long as they get an offensive guru in their next move.

Hollins is not really as ambitious as Kidd and at this point in his career, he might be glad to be on a bench and involved in the league.

If you think there wasn’t drama when Jerry was around then you are not a Lakers fan.

Kobe and Shaq say hi btw

I like the move. If for nothing else, he's not the type of guy who is going to tuck their tail and cower if/when Bron starts power tripping or goes into diva mode.

There's constructive drama and destructive drama.... post Jerrys has been the later in spades.

As for drama and the Lakers... Jerry Buss' first few months on the job were interesting as was the early drama with Magic in 82..... then again in 96.... and again in 2018.... and....

I have absolutely no problem with this hire. I expect ADJUSTMENTS if we're struggling during any game. Something Walton lacked a lot...
