Return to the Lakers as coach and player (1994, 1996) Johnson returned to the NBA as coach of the Lakers near the end of the 1993–94 NBA season, replacing Randy Pfund, and Bill Bertka, who served as an interim coach for two games.[103][104] Johnson, who took the job at the urging of owner Jerry Buss, admitted "I've always had the desire (to coach) in the back of my mind." He insisted that his health was not an issue, while downplaying questions about returning as a player, saying, "I'm retired. Let's leave it at that."[105] Amid speculation from general manager Jerry West that he may only coach until the end of the season,[105] Johnson took over a team that had a 28–38 record, and won his first game as head coach, a 110–101 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks.[106] He was coaching a team that had five of his former teammates on the roster: Vlade Divac, Elden Campbell, Tony Smith, Kurt Rambis, James Worthy, who would retire after the season, and Michael Cooper, who was brought in as an assistant.[105][1 ...

more like the wrong guys to have traded... but who is to say the chemistry with that team would have worked...? History has shown us that in some trades, one of the two parties can be greatly benefited while the other party will be a big loser. We’ve seen several such deals in the history of the NBA. Let’s break down which are the Worst 10 trades in the history of the league. No.1: Charlotte Hornets trade Kobe Bryant to the Los Angeles Lakers Some trades are meant to change the entire history of a franchise. The Hornets received Vlade Divac, who was a solid starter at that time. But Kobe turned out to be the next big thing in the NBA. A definite loss for Charlotte. No.2: Milwaukee Bucks trade Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Yet another time the Los Angeles Lakers were the big winners of a trade. This time it was Kareem Abdul-Jabbar who came to LA to change the course of the franchise. The Lakers gave away Dave Meyers, Junior Bridgeman, Brian Winters and Elmore Smith but they never were able to meet the expectati ...
Little Giant Ladders
Laker Fans: So i've been a Laker fan since I could remember. I remember my dad stealing ONtv so we could watch Laker games or sneaking over to my brother Fran Duran friends' home to watch the Laker games at their place. I remember chasing down Laker girls with Kevin Michael at the Forum to get our picture with them. Magic Johnson rolling down his window at a stop light after a Laker game in Jim Smith car and saying hello to us. Sneaking into the Forum club and hanging with all the showtime Lakers and movie stars of the time. I was still a fan when it was the Lakers led by Nick Van Exel, Elden Campbell & Vlade Divac!!! I've got tickets today for when they play the Kings. I placed them on sale and no one wanted them. They are a few rows behind the Laker bench! So…i'm going to a Laker game today and I don't really want to go. Help me, why do i feel this way??? Your comments are appreciated, even from the Laker haters.
The Laker teams of Van Exel, Eddie Jones, Vlade Divac > Laker team currently
Joakim Noah had 14 assists in todays win having a Triple double. Yes that's a Center with 14 assists. He also leads the team in assists with 4.6 APG. Yes thats a Center leading the team in a category your PG usually does. He's the best passing Big Man since Vlade Divac and he's also pretty handy with the rock as well. Without Noah this year Bulls wouldn't be where they are now. When you look at what an MVP Noah is a prime example of it on and off the court. He kept the team together after the Lou Deng trade when the team could've easily collapsed. Deng was like a brother to Noah and it's not hard to see a lot of Deng in him. Noah is a bit different personality wise but that's what makes him so loved. He's a team leader, he's the ultimate hustle guy, he's versatile, and he's not only one of the top 3 Centers in the league but one of the top stars in this league. Yes He's better then Dwight Howard in more ways then 1 and most importantly in that is he doesn't get his coaches fired or team falls apart. Noah ...
A lot of people say the most talent ever to take a basketball court at one time was the 1987 NBA Finals. Bird, McHale, Parish, D. Johnson, Magic, Worthy and Abdul-Jabbar. But I say nay. Look to the 1993 MTV Rock ‘N Jock contest. Starting line-ups: Bricklayers – Ed Lover, Dan Cortese, Rick Mahorn, Mark Jackson and Dean Cain. For the Violators – Jeff Ament, Dan Majerle, Bill Bellamy, Vlade Divac and Flava Flav. Your announcers? Steve Albert and Jon Stewart. This is why history is taught in schools, so kids can know how great it once used to be.

The Bing search engine is RC Cola. It is a Yugo. It is Cleveland. Bing is a Little Debbie pastry, a Hydrox cookie, imitation ice milk, Krab. it is a timeshare presentation. It is Vlade Divac, Pauly Shore, Kenny G, the Chicago Cubs. It is the home page of "me too," the player-to-be-named later, a permanent digital art exhibit on the theme "others in attendence were..." It is too mediocre to hate, too hapless to use, and everytime I see a Bing commercial, I want to turn the sound off and sing something by Sammy Cahn. Rant concluded.
After the game in Cleveland I looked at who played for the Lakers, almost non of the players is a recognizable name.

LeBron James must have known it was the birthday of professional flop artist Vlade Divac yesterday, because to commemorate the special day LeBron broke out the very rare and elusive double flop! Just watch as the "King" tries the the subtle approach at first after being struck by the invisible elbow to the grill and then follows that up with the Academy award winning, eyes rolling to the back of the head while crashing down to the hardwood flop. Great work "King" gonna hate.

1992-93: Not A Very Pfund Year For The Lakers Prior to the 1992-93 season Mike Dunleavy departed the Lakers to become head coach and vice president of basketball operations for the Milwaukee Bucks. Los Angeles promoted longtime assistant Randy Pfund to the head coaching role. The Lakers had a difficult season, struggling to mesh young talent such as Vlade Divac, Elden Campbell, and Anthony Peeler with veterans such as James Worthy, A. C. Green, and Byron Scott. Veteran Sedale Threatt, whom Los Angeles had acquired from Seattle prior to the 1991-92 campaign, assumed Johnson's vacated point guard role for the second consecutive year. Threatt led the team in both scoring (15.1 ppg) and assists (6.9 apg), but something was still missing. At midseason the Lakers sent Sam Perkins to Seattle for Benoit Benjamin and the rights to unsigned rookie Doug Christie, an athletic swingman who seemed to have star potential. The move was a signal that the Lakers intended to rebuild with youth, a philosophy that would hit h ...
Steve Kerr said Kendall Marshall look like Vlade Divac ...Lol say he just might be right
steve Kerr said Kendall Marshall looks like Vlade Divac lmao funniest thing by far he has ever said and ever will say
The Colts traded a 2014 first round pick for Trent Richardson The Pats traded a 7th rounder and Jeff Demps (!!!) for LeGarret Blount. The way he is playing, that Blount trade is looking like the Kobe for Vlade Divac deal LOL
I know the LA Lakers will get Andrew Wiggins, they have had the most luck wit trades for most of the franchises history!! So to review, over the years and not including Wilt, the Lakers have been involved in deals that included losing Gail Goodrich, Elmore Smith, Brian Winters, Junior Bridgeman, David Meyers, someone named Essie Hollis, Jack Givens and Vlade Divac. In return, they received Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Magic Johnson, James Worthy, Shaquille O’Neal and Kobe Bryant. Wiggins will be a Laker and take the rains from Kobe!!
Can you believe this crap? We got rid of Bynum to pick him back up again for Pau? Are you joking? Why don't we get back Cedric Ceballos or the Gangsta himself Nick Van Exel? Bring back the big flopper and chain smoker 3 packs a day Vlade Divac! What a waste, one and done for the next five years!

The Kings aint been good since Vlade Divac & Chris Webber..lol
Star-less in Boston It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that the NBA is a league that heavily depends on the star power of its players. For instance, before the emergence of Kobe Bryant, the Los Angeles Lakers was just a lowly team struggling to find the shadow of Magic Johnson in Nick Van Exel and the ghost of Kareem Abdul-Jabbar in Vlade Divac. Same with the Miami Heat, a team which haven't had any serious post-season run prior to the drafting of Dwayne Wade in 2003, and the Los Angeles Clippers, which was a mere punchline before Chris Paul and Blake Griffin decided to don its red and blue jersey. That's the problem right now in Boston. Despite the Celtics' proud championship tradition and solid brotherhood, they have been reduced from one of the league's elite teams into the most mediocre squad. Call it tanking, rebuilding or whatever sugar-coated labels Danny Ainge could put, only one thing is sure: This is not the same old Celtics team that once sowed fear into the Eastern Conference. Th ...
Greivis Vasquez is out there looking like Vlade Divac's kid playing for the
“Vlade Divac.?? “Your a REAL Nba fan if u know who this is… Nick Van Exel?
We thank coach Rajko Toroman! And we thought we Filipinos were basketball junkies. Rajko Toroman’s day goes some thing like this. In the morning he watches the NBA games. Everything that is shown on local television he watches. Even on delay. What he misses he catches on the replay. In the afternoon, he catches the UAAP, the NCAA, the D-League in the different venues around the metropolis. In between, he surfs different websites for recaps, stories, gossip, and information about hoops. When he gets home at night, he watches the PBA. Think his day is done? His nightcap is the Euroleagues. “I am a basketball coach. It is all I know,” he proclaims. A man of three countries Toroman is a renowned figure in international basketball. But he is commonly associated with three countries. The first is his homeland of Serbia and being an assistant coach on the last united Yugoslavia team before civil war wracked the Balkan country. That mighty team featured such stalwarts as Drazen Petrovic, Vlade Divac, Toni K ...
“Been a lakers fan since Nick Van Exel & Eddie Jones was on the squad .” Vlade Divac
Vlade Divac, Peja Stojakovic, Mike Bibby, Doug Christie, and Chris Webber. I wish that was still the Kings' starting line-up.
Who is one of the best & one of the greatest L.A. Lakers legends of all time: George Mikan, Wilt Chamberlain, Jerry West, Gail Goodrich, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, James Worthy, Kurt Rambis, Vlade Divac, Earvin "Magic" Johnson, Shaquille O'Neal or Kobe Bryant?
Mario Chalmers flops more then Vlade Divac...smh
"He is amazing. He is somebody that can be in the same category as Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson and Larry Bird." -Vlade Divac on Kevin Durant
NBA legend Vlade Divac says bound Kevin Durant can match Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson and Larry Bird-
Why is Vlade Divac making a surprise visit to the Sacramento Kings practice facility? Ailene Voisin writes about it.
Just spotted Vlade Divac at the Orlando airport. Do you remember him more as a King or Laker?
Chris Kaman to the Lakers? Seriously?? Why not sign Stanley Roberts? Or Michael Olowokandi? Bring poor old Vlade Divac out of retirement? SMH
My pitch to free agent Dwight Howard: "Dwight, our history shows that we will win with you or without you. If you want to win and be remembered as an all time great like Shaquille O'neal, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Bill Russell then sign the dotted line. But if you want to settle for early round exits in the playoffs year in and year out and be remembered with Patrick Ewing, Rik Smits, and Vlade Divac then by all means. don't let the door hit'cha where the good Lord split'cha!

Now, I'm an Atlanta Hawks fan, so I don't know ANYTHING about NBA basketball, but: Kobe played on teams with Shaquille O'Neal (most dominant force in the league at that time), Elden Campbell, Derek Fisher, Eddie Jones, Robert Horry, Byron Scott, Nick Van Exel, Jon Barry, Rick Fox, J. R. Reid, Glenn Rice, Dennis Rodman, A. C. Green, Ron Harper, Brian Shaw, John Salley, Horace Grant, Mitch Richmond, Karl Malone, Bryon Russell, Vlade Divac, Luke Walton, Chucky Atkins, Caron Butler, Lamar Odum, Gary Payton. . . . . . . . . . . .and many others. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .and y'all are mad at Lebron for trying to put a team together to win championships? just asking... .. .
Chucky Atkins, Tony Bobbitt, Tierre Brown, Andrew Bynum, Caron Butler, Brian Cook, Vlade Divac, Maurice Evans, Jordan Farmar, Devean George, Brian Grant, Jim Jackson, Jumaine Jones, Aaron McKie, Stanislav Medvedenko, Chris Mihm, Lamar Odom, Smush Parker, Laron Profit, Vladimir Radmanovic, Kareem Rush, Ronny Turiaf, Sasha Vujacic, Luke Walton and Shammond Williams. In case you failed to see the common denominator, those were the names of the players that shared the court with Kobe Bryant at one point or another from the 2004-05 season to the 2006-07 one. Needless to say, these players were selected to a combined 0 All-NBA teams.
Chris Bosh puts in an impressive 0pt performance. When you gonna get a real big man, like Vlade Divac or Arvydas Sabonis?
All you whiners about flopping SH, You obviously never saw Starks, Reggie Miller or Vlade Divac play.and the BIGGEST career flopper is Manu Ginobli and that's a FACT
LBJ is underrated. He will never exceed or even meet the lofty expectations - he' s been saddled with burden of being the King since day 1- more than any pro athlete as far as i recall. I luv MJ but MJ had Dean Smith , Zen Master . Don't even mention Kobe- he was an apprentice for a while- heck he was acquired for Vlade Divac - nuff said. LBJ is hated now but when it's all said and done, he will be the greatest ever.
What do Mitt Romney, John Kerry, Vlade Divac and Lebron James have in Common? They're Pancakes they're Flip Floppity...
Larry Bird in Sac? Is he worth 5 mil per year? Gawd, I used to love this guy back when a Celtics-Lakers game was the epitome of great basketball, when he was a member of the Dream Team, and the fact that he is the only person in NBA history to be named Most Valuable Player, Coach of the Year, and Executive of the Year. I loved the Chris Webber, Jason Williams, Vlade Divac and Peja Stojakovic (and other players I can't remember off hand) days. If we can get something like that again, Larry Bird is well worth 5 mil per year. Maybe more.
Vlade Divac has elected Shane Battier into the Flopping Hall of Fame lol love this video
My team starting five right now: penny hardaway, Dominique Wilkins, lebron James, Tom Sanders, Vlade Divac
Sooo lemme get this straight...Yall are REALLY comparing Lebron to MJ and this guy is LITERALLY out here floppin more then Vlade Divac? (if you dont know him youtube him) I mean *** this gettin a lil old and played out yo...
Well the Sacremento Kings finally added the straw that broke the camels back with the firing of Geoff Petrie! I have hung on during the reign of Goofy Maloof and the two stooges, the firing of hall of fame caoch Rick Adelman and the contiuned hiring of pitiful, second class coaches. This is it. i have supported the Kings back to the time Joe Benevenuti looked for my support when he first though of bring a NBA franchis here. I watched a young Georr Petrie and his teammate bring a NBA championship to Portland.regon. Geoff was the rookie of the year their! I have watched him build a pitiful, inferior basketball team from scratch! I witnessed the signing ogf Chris Weber, Vlade Divac, Peja Stoyakovich, hedo Turkoglu, Doug Cristie and Henry Bibby to name a few! He is a hall of fame player and team builder. I now wish the Seattle franchise had taken this pitiful, over-valued, nee do wells' from our city..As of this day i no longer I will be just lethargic over this band of half wits. Now let them go and hire a n ...
Flopping is a big issue. Not that it only happens in todays game. Its been happening from way back in the 80s and 90s as well. Yeah the media back then isnt the media right now. They didnt have a million cameras in every single angle and instant replay. The reason why it is getting so much more attention now is because of the improved technology. Flopping as been part of the game for a long time. From Reggie Miller to Danny Ainge to Vlade Divac. They were all master of flopping back in the days. - Hoops Talk
Vlade Divac & Manu Ginobili think the Heat are a little overboard with the flopping...
Worse trade in NBA history. How many people know that Kobe Bryant was drafted by the Charlotte Hornets? He was traded on draft day to LA for Vlade Divac.
Sacramento should be called "That place Chris Webber and Vlade Divac played in"
What a dangerous tip out by Kevin Durant. Reminscent of the Vlade Divac tip out to Robert Horry. Inconsequential, OKC up 1-0.
Me and DuPont just turned Ricky pierce and Vlade Divac into MJ and Kareem
Bogut is channeling Vlade Divac tonite! Most entertaining basketball in awhile.
the same city that traded him for Vlade Divac? LMFAO
Vlade Divac ain't walking through that door...
