08:10 AM ET 05.30 | Even if he could, Indiana Pacers coach Frank Vogel won't be bragging about 2011-12 this offseason. Vogel is already looking ahead to next season. On whether he expects associate head coach Brian Shaw to return next season: ... "I'd be shocked if he does come back. I'm actually shocked that he's not a head coach already. He's got it all. He's going to be one of the top five head coaches in the NBA for the next 10 years when he finally gets his shot, and there's not a doubt in my mind that's going to happen. I had high expectations for him coming in, and he flat out blew me away and exceeded those expectations, much like our team did, with everything he does. He has no weaknesses to him at all."

Shaw just seems too low key to be an NBA head coach.

Shaw should have been the Lakers coach.

Sure should have.....everyone in LA, including PJ, expected him to take over.

QUOTE(#8):

Perhaps the Pacers should keep Shaw around so they can give him the shot after Vogel fizzles out.

Coach in waiting.........Doesn't work.

Like Donald Trump's "opinion" about Obama's birthplace LOL

But in this case, with no facts, I share your opinion as well :-)

Shaw, Ewing don't appear to have what it takes to be a top notch HC in this league.
