Brian Shaw’s Unimaginably Tragic Summer Of 1993: From ESPN’s Arash Markazi comes this great (and very, very sad) piece on Lakers assistant, and possible next head coach, Brian Shaw.

Here's a link to the actual article

I remember being heart broken as a kid when Shaw left for Europe for after his rookie season with the Celtics. I would actually go back and forth between pretending to be him and Reggie Lewis out on my porch with my nerf hoop. I wasn't aware of this aspect of his past so this is an interesting read.

Wow.

I'm not sure if I want him to win the Lakers job because he would be hard to root against.
