Jerry Buss: "Sloan, how's it been? I'm sure you've heard the news about our coach..."
Sloan: "Yeah, you fired him five games into the season."
JB: "Yes, well, right... It just wasn't a good fit and we all knew it."
Sloan: "Hard to say 5 games into the season with your starting point guard out."
JB: "Well, we weren't headed in the direction we wanted to be..."
Slaon: "...five game into the season."
JB: "Okay, right. So, the reason I'm calling. We'd love to hear your thoughts on what you'd do with this team. We've always had a massive amount of respect for you, what you did in Utah and the kind of player and coach you are. Simply one of the best there has ever been."
Slaon: "Mr. Buss."
Sloan: "I hate the Lakers. Goodbye" click
I'd like to think it went something like that.

Leave it up to Gameface to give me my laugh of the day.
"If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the people of all property until their children wake up homeless on the continent their Fathers conquered." - Thomas Jefferson
D'antoni seems like a terrible fit to me. They are a slow ass team.

I think, coach D'Antoni is the second best fit among candidates... I was listening some local sport radio shows on air in LA just after coach Brown had been fired. Faker fans think that LA should be scoring much more and there should be a "show" on the basketball court, which was definitely missing w/ Brown anchoring the team.
PJ is the fan fave. but do not think he will coach again, despite the fact that this Lakers team is built to win "now", which Jackson is great at. Kobe
Kobe has a great respect for coach D'Antoni btw.
....I hate being right all the time but this is what I said in the other thread: "Won't be Sloan, won't be Jackson........"That leaves the Suns old coach. He could do the job and fit as well as any coach could possibly fit....if Nash can get healthy and stay healthy."

Makes me feel better about having Nash, if he gets healthy.

This is funny.
Add a few more F words and you are spot on.
