Nate McMillan---The Portland Trail Blazers were in the top 10 in scoring defense four years in a row under McMillan, so the Lakers would more than likely have improved greatly on the defensive end under McMillan.
Brian Shaw---The former Laker was an assistant coach under Jackson and knows the personnel well.
Jerry Sloan---The master of the pick-and-roll offense would have had a great combination in Steve Nash and Dwight Howard. Then again, he never won a title in Utah with John Stockton and Karl Malone.
So who would you have chosen as the new coach of the Lakers? Vote in our poll and let us know in the comments.
