The Los Angeles Lakers fired head coach Frank Vogel after what can only be described as a complete failure of a season. The Lakers never built any team chemistry. LeBron James was often on an island to try and win games himself. The next head man in LA will need to be a proven leader who can deal with big personalities and big egos.
Rapper Master P recently expressed his interest. The No Limit Records mogul has a long history in basketball. He even played minor league ball in the CBA for a brief period.
Shaquille O’Neal is a former Lakers great who has won championships with the team. Master P hinted that he would like to coach alongside Shaq. In his recent appearance on The Big Podcast, Shaq said he would be down to coach the team. It would cost them a fortune, though.
“If the Lakers offer me $25 million a year for 4 years, I’ll coach the Lakers. I need a 4-year contract. I’ll coach them right now.
Let’s just say they have a conversation with Master P and they don’t pick him, now I’ll just go in as a side meet and say, ‘Hey, I know you didn’t wanna consider my good friend Master P, but if you want me, this is the fee.'”
The number Shaq proposed is not a reasonable one. The current highest-paid coach in the NBA is Greg Popovich. He makes $11 million. While Shaq might not be a serious contender for the head coaching position, the thought of him leading a team alongside Master P is hilarious.
