Rick Adelman... coach of the LA Lakers? Not so fast.
Rumors have been circling that the Lakers almost transitioned from Phil Jackson to Rick Adelman, who would have fit in with the no-nonse attitude of LA.
Adelman was a coach for the Kings and Blazers, a nemesis of the Lakers in prior years and subject of antipathy from Lakers fans. No love for Adleman in LA.
Too bad for LA!
