Despite a brutal elimination in the first round of the playoffs, the Lakers still remain in the news with their search for a new coach. And for Paul Pierce, there is a candidate who looks like a social media scam…

While the playoffs are in full swing, the next season has already started for the Lakers.

Indeed, after parting ways with Darvin Ham, Rob Pelinka and his associates will have to find a successor capable of leading LeBron James and Anthony Davis to the top.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski, there are 5 names to follow at the moment:

The Lakers were allowed to interview several assistants for their coaching vacancy: James Borrego of the Pelicans, David Adelman of the Nuggets, Sam Cassell of Boston, Micah Nori of the Timberwolves and Chris Quinn of the Heat.

Paul Pierce not a fan of JJ Redick on the Lakers bench

The search is progressing and this list proves one thing: the Lakers will not be afraid to give an inexperienced candidate a chance.

This is what also strengthens the track JJ Redick, who has never been on a bench before but who hosts a podcast on tactics with LeBron. But for Paul Pierce, this choice would be a mistake:

If you want a choice that looks good and speaks well, presents well, you have to hire JJ Redick. We hear him speak in his podcast, he expresses himself well, he draws systems on the board that seem effective, he gives the impression of having a huge IQ, that he is made for this job…

But he’s almost like an Instagram model. The photos are always beautiful, but when you see it in real life, it’s not what you thought.

These girls are perfect when you look at their profile, but in real life you are always disappointed. And that’s exactly what I see with JJ Redick for the Lakers job. […]

If you don’t have experience, if you’ve never been on a bench before, it’s too complicated to land on the position with the most pressure in the entire league.

For Paul Pierce, JJ Redick would be almost too perfect in his podcast to become the coach of the Lakers.

He believes that there must be a defect somewhere, especially given his lack of experience.

Expressing yourself in the calm of a podcast is one thing, but doing it with the pressure of victory in a decisive timeout is another.

The Lakers will have to make a relevant choice when hiring their new coach. LeBron James is nearing the end and he will have to maximize all his talent before he retires for good…
