Coach K Coming to LA?

From some dude named Woelful at the Journal Times (Wisconsin):

At least one well-informed NBA informant insists that Lakers coach Phil Jackson will hang up the clipboard this summer and his successor could be Duke's Mike Krzyewski — especially if his highly-influential agen (Kobe Bryant) puts the heat on Lakers management.
Wouldn't this be fun? Every few years, Coach K's name pops up for an NBA job. I believe this is the second time he's been rumored to be headed to LA, and about 15 years ago his name surfaced for the Celtics job.

Coach K has passed on the NBA because he (and everybody else) knows his hard-line style won't work with NBA players. But if Kobe wants Coach K, then Kobe will get Coach K, provided he's finally willing to make the leap.

    Not a big Coach K guy. He is a brilliant coach and one of the best ever, but just not a big fan. Look at all these rumors…http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OsayCi8DDIs

    Weird. Just on Monday at work we mentioned his name to coach Cleveland.

    We should have seen this coming when Kobe started making the “Rat Face” in the finals.

    Hardline style? Coach K is known for coddling his players which is why so few Dukies are prepared for the NBA.

    If I remember correctly,19 years ago Red nearly had coach K convinced to join the Celtics. Red took him out to a DC restaurant and “wow’ed” coach K.
    He eventually declined and eventually Chris Ford replaced Jimmy Rogers and his ugly hair. lol

    Start hating? Duke is one of the most hated programs in collegiate sports.
