The Los Angeles Lakers will be making one of their most important decisions in recent memory, when they decide on their next head coach.

The Lakers need someone who can be at the helm for the forseeable future. The team has struck out on their last two hires, and can ill afford to do so again.

With Kobe Bryant’s career winding down, he is looking for a coach who can help him win one more championship ring before he ends his career. And according to Lakers Nation reporter Serena Winters, Bryant revealed to Jimmy Kimmel that he hopes his opinion is asked for when the time comes to make the hire:

Bryant didn’t exactly mesh well with Mike D’Antoni or Mike Brown, and while he never publicly clashed with either, there were rumors that he preferred to not play under D’Antoni.

Bryant is one of the most outspoken players in the NBA. With only a couple of years remaining, he obviously wants the right coach on the bench because he can’t afford for the Lakers to miss another hire.

The Lakers must be careful not to make a hire only with Kobe in mind, but it would seem silly to not at least get an idea of what the star of your franchise wants. He has expressed confidence in the ability of the Buss family to build a winner quickly, but it will take both sides working together to accomplish that goal.
