The Los Angeles Lakers plan to be extremely thorough in their long search for a new head coach to replace Mike D’Antoni. Today, it was rumored that UConn’s head coach Kevin Ollie, will meet with the Lakers in the next couple of weeks. However, Ollie later denied the rumored meeting with the Lakers on his Twitter account.
Also, Laker legend Magic Johnson made an appearance at Long Beach State last night and was asked who was the better player between Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant. Johnson would end up picking Jordan due to his record of never losing in the NBA Finals. Johnson would also go on to say that Kobe is on his Mount Rushmore of NBA greats.
