Kenny Smith thinks Mark Jackson can coach Lakers to title

- by

LeBron James is gonna be happy to hear this … Kenny “The Jet” Smith says he loves the idea of Mark Jackson becoming the Los Angeles Lakers’ next head … telling TMZ Sports he can lead the team to a championship. The Lake Show just fired Frank Vogel after a horrendous 2021 season … and there are reports the 4-time NBA champ favors the former Golden State Warriors head coach to take the reins.

Mark Jackson even being in the building guarantees at least a few Gallo isos – 9:57 PM

The Cavs best bet might be if Mark Jackson went from the broadcast booth to the bench and took over — because what they have has just been taken apart by Trae Young with no change in style. – 9:51 PM

Mark Jackson is the only coach I’ve ever encountered that has stans. It’s the weirdest thing. I’ve criticized plenty of coaches without a peep.
When I bring up the mountains and mountains of evidence that Mark Jackson should not be an NBA head coach, my DMs blow up. – 9:09 PM

More on this storyline

We spoke with The Jet about the vacancy … and he thinks landing Jackson would add trophies to the Lakers’ already-stuffed case. “Mark Jackson, he knows how to handle that kind of environment,” Smith said at LAX this week … pointing out the success he had with the Dubs before he was fired in 2014. -via TMZ.com / April 16, 2022
