Whoever the new headcoach is would be already at 5-10+ handicap games behind to get his team and players up to .500 team...so I guess home-court advantage goal would need monumental WINs to get to that. Tough tough challenge for any replacement coach.
Btw, are you guys aware that Lakers (with the BIG4) are ranked #15
out of 15 in the whole western conference at the moment?
Lakers Rank #30
(out of 32 teams) in overall of the NBA league. lol
