Mike Brown Considering Kuester as Assistant

If the Pistons let Kuester go, Mike Brown will certainly be considering him as an assistant coach: “Another coach Brown is interested in having on his Lakers staff is Detroit Pistons Coach John Kuester, two executives with NBA teams said. Kuester’s job with the Pistons is tenuous because of the revolt from his players during the past season when five of them skipped a practice. He remains under contract, but if Kuester is let go, Brown wants him coaching with the Lakers.”

    Kuester was his assistant for two seasons in Cleveland.
    It’s looking more and more like the triangle will be scrapped and the Lakers will have the same offense as the Cavs did with Bron…whatever that was.

    What are they playing at?

    don’t matter who the coaches are. the Lakers just need to put together their own Big 3… KB24, D12 & CP3

    Yeah, great choice, he has a nice record of maintaining healthy relationships with his players.

    hahaha he will make the lakers crash and burn he is a terrible coach even if they do just have him sitting on the bench

    Why not Shaw again? Im a die hard Lakers and Minnesota Vikings fan, but those of u that watch football too will know that wit choices like this, Brown is starting to look like Brad Childress to me. Not good at all

    the lakers already have a big three. 24, 16, and 17. 16 just needs to play hard every play like 24 does. and 17 needs to grow up and get healthy.
    plus they got 2 role vet defenders. and an energetic pg off their bench. oh yea and the 6th man of the year. the only personal change needed is a pg capable of staying in front of at least 1/2 of the other pgs in the game today.

    As a Pistons fan, I beg the Lakers to take Kuester from us. PLEASE. You can have him.

    Take Keuster !!! Take hime away !!! He doesnt know what reality is

    Nooooooooo, keep Brian Shaw as Offensive Assistant Coach so they can keep running the triangle. Then you just focus on the defense Mike Brown.

    Man i would hate to see Kobe’s reaction if Shaw is let go for this guy….this guy of all people. Not pretty. He already wont comment on Brown’s hiring

    nba coaches are at times very overrated. for example, this laker team is stuffed with veterans. does anybody really think kobe needs a mastermind coach? young kobe yes, older wiser kobe? not so much. great coaches can help the younger guys and let the vets do their thing. so whoever LAs coach is, wont be an issue until kobes done.

    more evidence this coach sucks. lakers are going down, sadly.

    @ RoG23, dude the coach is gonna coach the whole team not just kobe. We do need some great assistant coaches to help us deal with gasol’s softness. For the love of gawd, wet toilet paper is tougher than gasoft

    @Chukaz: The same Gasol that held back big scary D12 in the 2009 finals?
