Just remember when they hired Mike Brown it was because he knocked Jim & Mitch's socks off with a video presentation on his coaching philosophy and how he would coach the team at the time
Pringles was hired because it was allegedly Dr. Buss final dying wish and he was still calling the shots from his death bed in his hospital room. That's why Essential has that report book marked and will come in and defend Jimbo whenever that hiring subject gets brought up and why Phil Jackson was not brought back for his 3rd run with the Lakers.
Byron..well I don't know what Mitch & Jim were smoking at the time when they hired him
. All they literally said was he's a Laker guy and knows the Laker way
The reports I've seen lately is that Mitch is the one primarily handling this coaching hire and Jim Buss is not as involved.
