It was James’ associates, remember, who tried to get the Lakers to hire former Heat assistant David Fizdale (who went to the Knicks) last spring before James joined the team, an idea that was quickly nixed by Buss. And while James might want to retread his old coach, former Lakers guard Tyronn Lue, or his old Olympic teammate, Jason Kidd, Johnson may want a push for Michigan State coach and friend Tom Izzo, who’s given no indication he wants to leave the collegiate ranks. Expect Buss, who has backed Walton all year, to support a reasonable, qualified head coach who can please multiple factions, like Monty Williams.
Irina Pavlova, former President of Onexim Sports and Entertainment: Brook was out. Kevin (Garnett) couldn’t play big minutes. Mason (Plumlee) had to step up big time in his rookie year. I was talking to Jason (Kidd) before a game once and he said, “We need another big” and then asked what I thought of Jason Collins. I said, “I don’t know … You tell me! Is he good? Can he help us? Is he a good guy?” Kidd said, “Yes, I think he can. And yes, he’s a really good guy.” I asked, “Do you think it’ll be an issue with the locker room?” Kidd said, “If we had a bunch of really young guys, I’d be worried, but I know with KG and Paul (Pierce) here, it’ll be OK and they won’t let anyone get out of line.”
He resisted Kidd’s entreaties to shoot more 3s too. Middleton tried fewer than four per game; Kidd dared him to double his attempts in some games. “I was stubborn,” Middleton says. He blossomed anyway. Middleton averaged 18 points in 2015-16, and received All-Star consideration. He was primed to make it the next season. But at the end of a September practice, Middleton slipped on wet spot, and tore his left hamstring muscle completely off the bone.
