Time for some new blood a new way of Lakers basketball.
The problem I have is NOT with the fact they didn't sign Phil, it was with them hiring the worst available coach for the job.....even he was shocked.
In addition the unprofessional procedure speaks volumes about Jimmy Buss.
I wanted Adelman at the time they screwed up and signed Brown....not Phil.
