I could see Mike D'Antoni or Larry Brown take over.
D'Antoni success in the West winning championships is known - which is the standard for the Lakers - and Larry Brown is a teacher best suited to young players just entering the league from college and have no clue of the NBA life and game.
I don't think either of those two will get the Lakers over the hump this year or next, the two year window.
Either they get Phil back or they make the decision now to just let the year play out and blow up the team to start next year with a new group of players.
