The worst Lakers season in histroy is mercifully over. And now it's time to move forward. LAist will be regularly chyming with our advice throughout the offseason. We've already suggested the Lakers hold on to Kobe Bryant, trade Lamar Odom and Caron Butler if they can (made more difficult by Odom's shoulder surgery), and bring in a new head coach to replace Frank Hamblen.

But today we'll focus on the last point, because it all starts with leadership.
