05:14 PM ET 06.06 | Brian Shaw, who played with Shaquille O'Neal and the Los Angeles Lakers, has a few suitors in the Clippers and Nets pushing for his head-coaching services, and O'Neal thinks his old floor general would be a perfect fit. Having won championships with the Indiana Pacers assistant coach, O'Neal told the Indianapolis Star that teams must consider going in the direction of the new-age head coach rather than the "recycling" route that gives many older head coaches second chances they might not deserve. "I'm sick and tired of these coaches getting another chance before these other up-and-coming guys," Shaq said. "People need to realize this is a new era and B Shaw speaks that language. He's my age, but he understands how it goes. He knows how the players go, how they tick."

Clippers need an old school coach to kick their butts and knock some sense into them. Not someone who "understands" them. Somebody like Jerry Sloan George Karl -- who probably have no interest in working for Stirling. So, maybe Scott Skiles or Byron Scott. You can always bring in a more player-friendly once Jordan and Griffin get their act together.
