Hanging with Mr. Cooper... in Denver

We need to hear from you.
Today during our spring member drive, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. The local news you read here every day is crafted for you, but right now, we need your help to keep it going. In these uncertain times, your support is even more important. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership. Thank you.

The Sparks have lost one of their biggest Spark-plugs, as Head Coach Michael Cooper will leave the team to become an assistant coach with the Denver Nuggets.

Cooper has been offered assistant coaching positions in the NBA before (he was a Lakers assistant from 1994-97), but probably took this one because of swirling rumors that Jeff Bzdelik will be fired in Denver thereby giving Cooper the inside track to the job there.

In the meantime, LAist salutes Michael Cooper for bringing two WNBA titles to Los Angeles. We don't know what we'd do without them. Cooper did such a great job that it will take two coaches to fill his shoes.
