09:45 AM ET 05.25 | Although Alvin Gentry has a standing invitation to join Mike D'Antoni's staff as an assistant coach for the Los Angeles Lakers next season, he'd prefer to return to Los Angeles as a head coach ... with the Clippers. "If you look at that job, it's probably the best one out there," Gentry said of the Clippers' vacancy Thursday in an interview on ESPNLA 710. "When you take into consideration the talent level that they have and what they did this year." League sources have told ESPNLosAngeles.com that Gentry will be considered for the Clippers' job once the process gets more serious.

The John MacLeod approach to getting a job - drool about the job on-air.

You already coached the Clippers, Alvin.

No its not the best job out there, just ask Vinny Del Negro

Not good for Mecca. Getting Suns reject coaches is not a good thing. I'd be surprise if CP3 would approve him as the coach...

Who do you think would be the right fit? Not "if" scenarios but real possibilities.

I thought he had Scott canned as well and now by [silent] admission from the Clippers camp, he had VDN fired also.

Ouch, Bill Simons is painting a very interesting picture of Dwight on Grantland. I guess if he leaves that would not be so bad after all.
MMA won't like to read about it.

Guam was right. You really are the one that keeps trolling for attention.

What? I can point put the article and mention your name?
You do the same thing about the fanatics and our love for Kobe. Damn but when it comes to you then it's trolling.

Next you will say I am making stuff up. LMAO
Good morning by the way.
