The Los Angeles Lakers 2021-22 season has been described as a “historical atrocity” and an “unprecedented disaster” by sportscasters and writers alike for the team’s embarrassing on-court performance.

The debacle was even more significant because LeBron James was at the helm of this marquee franchise who were rudely dismissed from the playoff contention after becoming a putrified mess with a 6-18 record after the NBA All-Star break.

Entertainment boss Master P, who was a talented prep b-ball star and earned a scholarship to play in college, but then missed making an NBA roster by a slim margin, actually wants to coach the Lakers for the upcoming season.

His confidence comes with credentials after coaching his eldest son, Romeo Miller, and helping him get to the college ranks. He also did some coaching work with current All-Star DeMar DeRozan who now plays for the Chicago Bulls. So Maste P believes he can get the Lakers a lot more “W’s” than this past season.

“They need some alpha males over there. Can’t get nothing bigger than me,” Master P told “TMZ Sports.” “If you want to win, bring me in. At least give it a shot because this is Hollywood. When you look at the Lakers, I know what Mr. Buss done, he thought outside the box. So, if Jeanie Buss wants to think outside the box, I’ll bring some hell of assistant coaches with me like Shaq [Lakers icon Shaquille O’Neal], John Lucas … I don’t know if Shaq wants to do that, but if he do, we can take over.”

When the reporter probed further and asked if Master P can get Shaq to leave his Emmy-winning show, “Inside the NBA” on TNT, the rap legend answered in the affirmative.

“Charles [Barkley], let Shaq go,” he said, lighting up and smiling. “We need to go win out here in Lakerland.”

Master P even predicted that he and Shaq on the coaching bench would instantly make the Lakers a title contender.
