Kevin Garnett roasts Lakers for coaching search: ‘They not serious about trying to better the situation with that list of coaches’

As the Los Angeles Lakers continue to seek out a new head coach, Hall of Famer Kevin Garnett is ripping them by implying that their efforts shouldn’t be taken seriously. The reason for Garnett’s dismissive attitude toward the Lakers is based on reports that the team has narrowed its search to three candidates. That trio consists of former Portland Trail Blazers head coach Terry Stotts, Milwaukee Bucks assistant Darvin Ham and Golden State Warriors assistant Kenny Atkinson.

The Lakers have reportedly narrowed down their coaching search to Bucks assistant Darvin Ham, Warriors assistant and former Nets head coach Kenny Atkinson and former Trail Blazers head coach Terry Stotts. Posting on his Instagram story, Garnett wrote, “Man are the Lakers serious? They not serious about trying to better the situation with that list of coaches.” The NBA Hall of Famer continued to opine on the list of candidates who could potentially replace the fired Frank Vogel. “FOH [get the f–k out of here],” he added. “They serious? Nah they not serious! They serious.” There are also rumors in NBA circles that Doc Rivers, who won an NBA championship in 2008 with Garnett on the team, is a shadow candidate despite the 76ers retaining Rivers after the team collapsed in the playoffs. Writing on his Substack Monday, veteran NBA reporter Marc Stein said that the Lakers have not “abandoned hope” that they could land Rivers in a deal with the Sixers. Perhaps that would be a hire that would meet Garnett’s clearly-lofty standards.

Kevin Garnett I No. 22 I Nick Wright's Top 50 NBA Players of the Last 50 Years

Few players brought as much energy and fire to the game as Kevin Garnett, who ranks No. 22 on Nick Wright's Top 50 list. The Minnesota Timberwolves and Boston Celtics legend is one of three players in NBA history with at least 20,000 career points, 10,000 career rebounds and 5,000 career assists. Garnett was the ideal defender for the modern NBA, a big man who could defend the rim, but also switch onto guards and stay with them on the perimeter. He was, arguably, one of the best defensive players in NBA history. He was also old school: a fierce competitor and intense individual who liked to antagonize his foes.
