Brian Shaw

  1. Whoever replaces Phil Jackson will make a lot less

    May 24, 2011, 2:14 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Los Angeles Lakers - Game One

    Phil Jackson was the highest paid coach in the NBA. By 100 percent. He was making $12 million a year when no other coach was making more than $6 million. Jackson made about $10 million last season. Technically that’s a pay cut for him, but if my bosses want to cut me back to $10…

  2. Apparently Dunleavy is serious candidate to be next Lakers coach

    May 17, 2011, 10:32 AM EDT

    Phoenix Suns v Los Angeles Clippers

    This would be a big mistake — not because of his time with the Clippers but purely for stylistic reasons — but apparently the rumors are true. Mike Dunleavy is a serious candidate to become the next head coach of the Los Angeles Lakers, according to Kevin Ding of the Orange Country Register. Make no…

  3. Report: Mike Brown favored to become Warriors next coach

    May 13, 2011, 8:05 PM EDT

    Cleveland Cavilers v Boston Celtics

    Interesting note in ESPN’s Ric Bucher’s chat Friday, when a Golden State Warriors fan said Brian Shaw and Chuck Person were the front runners to be the next head coach in the Bay Area. Your sources are half right. Chuck and Brian are serious about getting the job and will be interviewed. But all signs…

  4. Brian Shaw is a lot more than a guy who coaches the triangle

    May 13, 2011, 6:59 PM EDT

    Phil Jackson, Brian Shaw

    Lakers assistant Brian Shaw is all over the place now. Interviewed in Houston, will get interviewed for Golden State, and of course is at the front of the line for the Lakers gig. Soon, somewhere, he is going to be an NBA head coach. On of the best bits of reporting this week came in…

  5. Golden State to interview Lakers assistant Brian Shaw

    May 13, 2011, 10:31 AM EDT

    Brian Shaw

    Brian Shaw remains the most likely guy to replace Phil Jackson on the Lakers bench. Getting the endorsement of Kobe Bryant matters. But if the Lakers go another direction (hello Rick Adelman) Shaw is going to have options. The Golden State Warriors got permission to talk to Shaw, according to Matt Steinmetz of CSN Bay…

  6. Lakers coaching search starts with Shaw, Person, Adelman

    May 12, 2011, 6:26 PM EDT

    Phil Jackson, Brian Shaw

    Lakers fans, you are going to need to be patient. Not your strength, I know, but you need to be. The Lakers management is going to take their time with this coaching search. But that search will begin at home, reports Sam Amick at Sports Illustrated. Then it will move on to Rick Adelman, according…

  7. Don’t count on Byron Scott as next Lakers coach

    May 11, 2011, 8:43 PM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers  v Miami Heat

    Byron Scott is a favorite son of Lakers owner Jerry Buss. Scott has openly lusted for the Lakers coaching gig. The Lakers have an open coaching vacancy, ergo… No. Don’t go there. To start with, Scott has a job as the Cavaliers head coach and as the Cleveland Plain Dealer tweeted they are not giving…

  8. Report: Lakers coaching search “wide open”

    May 9, 2011, 10:03 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Regal FC Barcelona

    The conventional wisdom is that the Lakers would go through the motions of a coaching search, then hire lead assistant Brian Shaw. The reasoning being that they have a two-time championship roster built to run the triangle offense, so you stick with what works. But there is this one little discussed fact — owner Jerry…

  9. Phil Jackson leaves the game with wry smile on his face

    May 8, 2011, 6:29 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Los Angeles Lakers - Game One

    This was not how you expected to see Phil Jackson walking away from the NBA. After a series where he could not get his players to buy into the system, to make the extra defensive rotation, to play at their peak, then to watch the players unravel at the end and take cheap shots. You…

  10. Bryant endorses Shaw as the Lakers’ next head coach

    Apr 8, 2011, 7:19 PM EDT

    Brian Shaw

    As you know by know, Phil Jackson is definitely, definitely not going to coach the Los Angeles Lakers next season. The last time the Lakers attempted to replace Jackson, they hired Rudy Tomjanovich and missed the playoffs. What will the Lakers do this time? Will they go with a big-name ringer or try to develop…

  11. Just to be clear, Phil Jackson is not coming back

    Apr 8, 2011, 3:26 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Sacramento Kings

    Phil Jackson played it smart. If he didn’t make another clear statement that this would be his last season coaching, he was going to be asked at every playoff press conference if he was returning next season. Now he’ll only be asked it every other press conference. Becuase when he sat down with a handful…

  12. Coach K almost came to Lakers in 2004; will not now

    Mar 24, 2011, 2:14 PM EDT

    Krzyzewski & Kobe Bryant

    Phil Jackson is going to walk away from the Lakers after this season, whether he makes it an even dozen rings or not. Brian Shaw is your front-runner. He almost certainly will be the head coach for the Lakers next season. But there will be rumors. Like Kurt Rambis (if he is let go in…

  13. Cousins says Brian Shaw motivated him against the Lakers

    Feb 1, 2011, 7:29 PM EDT

    DeMarcus Cousins

    DeMarcus Cousins is one of the most talented rookies in this year’s draft class. He’s also one of the most mercurial, and his play has been inconsistent throughout this season. However, the lightbulb seems to have gone off for Cousins recently: after the Bobcats held him to 9 points on 2-8 shooting on January 15th,…

  14. PBT Monday morning one liners

    Jan 31, 2011, 9:38 AM EDT

    Boobie Gibson

    Daniel Gibson is going to miss a game or two for the Cavaliers due to a left quad injury. Rather than having a bobblehead night promotion, the Cavs are almost at the point where one lucky fan will get to play backup point guard for a night. Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was at the Bucks…

  15. Phil Jackson says he is returning for one more year

    Jul 1, 2010, 5:20 PM EDT

    Phil Jackson made it official today — he is back for one more year as head coach of the Lakers. “Count me in,” said Jackson in the official statement on Lakers.com. “After a couple weeks of deliberation, it is time to get back to the challenge of putting together a team that can defend its…

  16. Report: Byron Scott in, Brian Shaw out as head coach of Cavaliers

    Jun 30, 2010, 8:55 PM EDT

    Cleveland sure looks like one well-oiled machine as they get ready to make their pitch to LeBron James for free agency. After a couple days of hearing how it was just a matter of negotiating a deal with Lakers assistant Brian Shaw, it appears the tables have turned. Shaw was known to be reaching out…

  17. Report: Brian Shaw to be head coach of Cleveland Cavaliers

    Jun 29, 2010, 12:12 PM EDT

    In an interesting move that could be brilliant or backfire horribly, the Cleveland Cavaliers are hiring Lakers assistant Brian Shaw as their head coach. The reports are conflicting. Shaw is the man and a deal is being finalized according to a report from Sam Amick at FanHouse. However, the well-connected Brian Windhorst says that no…

  18. The Cavs are setting themselves up to be shown up by LA again

    Jun 26, 2010, 12:00 PM EDT

    Earlier we told you that the Cavs have turned their coaching attentions towards Brian Shaw. It behooves us to talk a little bit about what this means for Cleveland. It means Cleveland is trying valiantly to be a premier franchise in the league. They’re willing to go out and aggressively pursue guys with championship rings.…

  19. If Phil Jackson steps down, the Lakers need to go with Brian Shaw

    Jun 25, 2010, 2:08 PM EDT

    For the next week, Lakers fans are heading to their local churches and lighting candles with a prayer that Phil Jackson decides to stay on to coach the Lakers. Fans are nervous, they are doing anything they can — meditating on it, offering rum to Jobu, burning incense to please the gods. There are PETA…

  20. Cavs set to interview Lakers' assistant Brian Shaw

    Jun 25, 2010, 11:47 AM EDT

    Cleveland continues to interview every head coaching prospect under the sun, and they’ve added L.A. assistant Brian Shaw to their itinerary. From Mike Bresnahan of the L.A. Times:  Shaw, a Lakers assistant coach the last five seasons, has been officially approached for an interview by Cleveland, The Times has learned, making this week even busier…

  21. NBA finals, Lakers Celtics Game 7: The coach's perspective

    Jun 18, 2010, 9:10 AM EDT

    After the game, a relaxed Lakers assistant Brian Shaw was talking to reporters about what it is like to coach in an this but intense game like Game 7. “You just want to stick with what you know and what you been preaching all year long. We kept on saying that we’re playing into their…

  22. Might Lakers Brian Shaw bring the triangle offense to Chicago?

    May 31, 2010, 5:57 PM EDT

    The triangle offense can win — 10 of the last 19 titles have gone to teams running the offense, and another triangle team is in the NBA finals this season. Of course, there’s a few other minor factors that go into that — Michael Jordan, Scottie Pippen, Shaquille O’Neal, Kobe Bryant, Pau Gasol, Phil Jackson.…
