    Sports Illustrated has an article that says they are targeting Kemba Walker as their top FA desire now.

    Totally agree. Let the collective national sports media reach climax together, though.

And who is going to step up and provide veteran leadership when the inevitable early struggles lead to even more intense media scrutiny?
    I donít know if Davis has an ego and needs to be the alpha dog, even if he did, thatís not happening with Lebron around. That brings to mind the clashes between Shaq and Kobe, sure, they found a way to coexist and won big, but, it crashed and burned at the end, I donít see Davis and James enjoying that sort of success. And when those inevitable midseason struggles raises its ugly head, everyone will naturally turn to Lebron for that leadership, will he be able to provide it? Who knows. Even worse, what if this just doesnít work and the Lackers are mired in the middle of the pack? Does head coach Frank Vogel wind up on the hot seat with his job at risk? Itís all a mess if you ask me.

    You know who the Lakers should hire as coach to handle these superstars and has a history of it ? Plus he has a history with organization.



    PHIL JACKSON.


    Give Jackson whatever he desires as coach. If he wants a percentage of the organization like 10-20% you give Phil that. But you bring him in and have him sit down with the stars the Lakers assemble and go from there.
