Nate is a quality head coach.

Funny how they just gave him an extension too.

Whether it was only a 1 year extension or not, it's still curious that they'd actually give him one if they had any inclination they would be firing him.

Well when Nate got the extension it was before the playoffs then it happened.

I don't think Nate is that impressive but the problems with the team go beyond him and Oladipo isn't healthy either.

I'm not sure who they're going to get that's better I think they did this because they have his replacement in place.

Although I rather have it be Kenny Atkinson than Mike D'Antoni.

I look up and down their roster and I'm surprised they even got the playoffs.

The East is weak and they play better in the regular season than postseason

What’s so bad about being fired if the money is guaranteed? Paid to do nothing. Can he collect double pay if he gets another job?

Considering the way this day has gone I think Nate McMillan had the best day ever if you think about it.

Yeah, I thought Nate did a pretty good job.

I'd say the Lakers should try to get him as an assistant for a year, if no other team hires him. But I think he's very likely to be hired as a head coach somewhere.
