Lakers interested in Daggum Roy

roy-williams

With Calipari out of the mix and Kevin Ollie getting a meeting soon, the Lakers will also consider another successful college basketball coach to fill its coaching vacancy.

According to the L.A. Times, the Lake Show has added Roy Williams to the short list of candidates who may get an interview soon. Williams declined an interview for the job in 2004, but should have a little more interest now that his program isn’t what it was and the school is swimming in an academic scandal.

Furthermore, the Staples Center signed a 10-year deal with Coca-Cola since Williams turned down discussions with the Lakers in 2004. The current deal with Coke is through 2019, a huge draw for Daggum Roy.

    This has got big mess all over it. No matter what the Lakers do Buss will screw it up. Buss has screwed up everything he has ever done, and the Lakers are into a desperate slide of years of losing.

    Fortunately, there are no academic requirements to be a professional basketball player

    Roy W left a small mess behind him at Kansas, he’s going to leave a massive mess at UNC. Don’t why the Lakers are interested but if he gets the offer, Roy’s off to sunny CA.

    He will cry if he stays or cry if he goes. Plus he looks like Huckleberry Hound.
