who else was a viable option? Monty would have been a bad signing.... everyone wants to laugh but let's be real? which coach can we realistically get that would already have Lebrons respect, and has Championship pedigree?



The one thing I hope is that he hires the best assistant coaches and medical staff because that was Luke's downfall... will be nice to actually have a 1/2 court offense too

The coach doesn't usually hire the medical staff, so if Walton is being blamed for them that's a bit BS (but the guy who gets fired usually gets blamed for a lot of things).

And you should know that your offense is going to just be even more the LeBron offense, not a Ty Lue offense.

That said, you are right, not many people out there who want to take that on, and Lue's Lakers history probably helps too.

At least they didn't get Kidd or Mark or Phil Jackson ... that would have been a real sideshow.

Still, in a vacuum it's an uninspired hire.

Marco Nunez was on staff before Luke's hiring, he was asked numerous amounts of times to upgrade his coaching staff, medical team etc, was asked to hire a shooting coach... which he refused... ultimately that's what led to his departure...

Lebron will get him fired/let go within 2-3 years. That's just how things work. Lue had to step away from coaching the last time he coached Lebron. Why would this time be any different

It can mean one of two things:

1. Lakers decided on Bron to take over as coach and also to dictate to the GM all new contracts and roster, who goes and who comes...

2. Out of the coaches they interviewed, the decent ones turned them down after they heard the answer in their Q "what the role of Bron with the team will be"? and therefore they were forced to go for Lou...

In either case Lebron takes over...

Why would they ask Walton to upgrade the training staff? I get the other stuff ... the poor staff was a major reason Mark Jackson got fired. But the training staff is not usually the coaches job.

Luke had full control of coaches and staff on the bench, he opted not to upgrade so that's why he got the boot. I like Luke but too stubborn costed him the Lakers job, hope he learns from his mistake.

I understand, usually he doesnít have responsibility for the guy... the thing that fís me up is we hire these guys because they were Lakers.. Nunez was Garry Vittiís ďprotegeĒ .... Luke elected to keep him on the bench with the assistants... we missed over 200games+ total this year... itís ok, we can just move on from this because weíre not getting anywhere with it but Luke did have full control of the entire staff.

Doesnít matter. LeBron has 2 (maybe 3 more years left if he exercise his player option) so it would run thru the same timeline as Ty Lue. If we unsuccessful with those 2 guys, Lue can get fired and Bron can retire.

Then weíll go after Giannis when he becomes a free agent and boom. Lakers be back

candidates I would consider before pulling the trigger on Lue

Joerger
either Van Gundy
Vogel
Vanterpool (especially seeing the Blazers in this years playoffs)
Becky Hammon

not saying that any of these are necessarily a better hire considering their roster, but it seems like the Lakers should broaden their search efforts after the suns nabbed Monty...I don't think should just settle on the only Lebron guy left.

Itís not as bad as people make it out to be in my opinion. Part of the fault of the Lakers this season was the utter lack of shooting they had to go around the one player whoís fullest potential for winning becomes unlocked with shooters around him. Time and time again its proven crucial to surround a dominant player with shooters to make the offense very hard to guard (Lebron the past few years, Giannis this year, Dhoward in 09) and the fact Magic went against that was stupid. Letting Lopez walk was VERY stupid this year, he would have been perfect for the Lakers. I think Rob Pelinka will be able to learn from this. Back to Ty Lue though, this is a coach who, though he makes dumb decisions a lot, understands the ďLebron systemĒ more than most in this league do. Without LeBron heís utterly useless (0-6 to start the season), (4-22 without lebron and w kyrie & love), but with him he does a great job of unlocking LeBronís fullest potential. He has those perks however if hired youíre probably going to see stupid rotations and questionable plays when LeBron is off the floor, that comes with having him as a coach. However, donít expect anything under 5 seed for the king this upcoming season.

Okay, sorry. I just think that it's a terrible idea by the Lakers. There are major questions on how much of an coaching impact Lue actually has on a team, (especially a team with a bunch of younger players cause his teams in Cleveland were full of veterans). Many people believe he's more of a Lebron hire/patsy (even with the title). This could hurt the teams pursuit of Thompson/Durant/Leonard/Walker, etc, cause while they might not mind playing with Lebron, the impression that Lebron rules the entire team functions through his stroke might be a bit of a turnoff. Of course, we'll have to see what happens come July, but this might have a negative impact.

Youíd think the fact only 7 players on the roster would mean they could have the ability to revamp the roster, right? Itís less a bold prediction & more of using past context to justify my reasoning. Ty Lue & Rob Pelinka could get something special going if they get an all star level talent (doesnt even have to be superstar) and a few shooters around bron. Lue knows LBJ, itís not completely far fetched to believe those two go well together. I mean, they have a ring for goodness sake.

Yes, they have room to remake the roster ... just like they did last year. Last year people were predicting 3 seed for the Lakers. Until the roster has something more it's pretty hard to support a prediction of top 5 seed out of the blue.

Saying all that, Lebron bringing a title back to LAL will catapult his love up near Bryantís, more Lakers fans would be accepting toward him and we wouldnít get the bash fest we have now.

Yes, they have room to remake the roster ... just like they did last year. Last year people were predicting 3 seed for the Lakers. Until the roster has something more it's pretty hard to support a prediction of top 5 seed out of the blue.

Until 212+ total games missed... healthy that teams wins 13 more games. I get it, you hate us, I donít blame
You but not watching the games (rarely) it really doesnít seem like you have anything to support your claims on... but hey it happened and you can say it all you want until we prove differently.

Fair statements for the most part, though I think the haters will continue to hate #LABron even if he wins a Chip, which frankly is not guaranteed. All I hear Lakerfans saying is "gosh I hope we can get the 8th seed."

Sure, every time wants to win a Title, that's not unique to any team. Mind you, Lakers haven't even scratched the 1st round in something like 7 years. The last time we made it we got swept in the 1st round (Spurs?).

We should start a separate thread just for my LABron pipe dreams. I see him getting this additional extension contract with the Lakers, maybe a 2 year deal similar to bryant's, then a nice long farewell tour where he becomes the all time leading scorer in NBA history.

He said himself he wants his #23 jersey in the rafters - and I think it's headed there!

If you look at the free agent list for this off-season ... if the Lakers add the top 4 stand still shooters, a decent center and PF they will be a LOT better. Then all Lue has to do is get the young guys to develop and give the ball to LeBron.

Thatís what I was trying to say my man. They will most likely be top 5 seed if they add a star and shooters. Itís early for predictions yes, but its not a very big stretch to say that especially if they get a stretch big or two, theyíll be guaranteed playoff bound.

There is only one problem... "Convincing FAs to join Lebron or the Lakers"... at least for next season and especially if Lou is the coach as it will then mean that they'll have to live under Lebron's "shadow" in all floor "tactics", "coaching" and even their "contract management" to much extend...

Ohhh... he meant Vooch! Everybody wants him, but I doubt Hammond lets him go... He certainly won't go to the Lakers if he ever leaves Orlando...

He is the "best of buddies" with Mirotic, with whom he was team mates when they where kids back in Montenegro (they are the only two from Montenegro in the league) and the Bucks have Mirotic all over him as to join the Bucks... But as I said before, "I doubt Hammond will loose him off his hands with ease"...

1/8th of the FAs and then the lower part quality wise, would be a far more reasonable figure, although still optimistic...

I believe that the managers of the players have an example to be based on after the FAs that signed with the Lakers the previous off season...

I believe that last February the 7th deadline is a good example of how managers look at the Lakers and the same will be repeated this off season...

Ask Bledsoe (who is the best of buddies with Lebron) if you don't trust me saying...

The Lakers can absolutely add 3/4 of the free agents ... they won't get them on some sort of 1 year cheap deal, but you pay a mid-level NBA player more than what they are worth for more years than makes sense and most of them will go anywhere and play with/for anyone.

I always though (and now realize) that you are totally clueless on basketball... Let me explain it you... It doesn't matter that you realize no"worthy" FA will sign an 1-year deal... It's the trade they can't control later... Understand?

But even if they will believe that "they trust their performance" and therefore "the Lakers won't trade them if in a mulltiyear contract"... there is no way they can see the Lakers going somewhere with Giannis being 24 and Lebron 35... Understand?

If you don't (understand) then you better wake up and realize there is a new king in the NBA!

Therefore stop posting nonsense and stop banding people for explaining it to you... because you've heart PSD's credibility more than anyone in here!

You are simply totally clueless on basketball!

It's just another example of the Lakers seeming to have no plan or no people who can execute the plan:

- The way the roster was built last off-season
- The players lost/sent away
- Throwing former players under the bus
- Throwing a stupid deal at KCP to make LeBron('s agent) happy
- Publicly putting Walton on the hot seat in the first week of the season. Not the best way to get the team to come together.
- Supposedly the training staff has been terrible for years and it wasn't replaced
- Alienate the entire roster with mid-season trade talks.
- The team as a whole failed to manage the players and the culture, in fairness that's incredibly hard when LeBron is on a team.
- Magic leaving
- Magic telling the press first
- Walton fired with no plan
- Lue was a weak move in the first place
- Trying to hire a head coach and trying to dictate their staff

This all leading into an offseason where the plan is to try to get top free agents to join the team. It's not going well.
