    Darvin Ham was under the Budenholzer learning tree in Milwaukee so I have to give him that. But then he has hardly no young players on this team to work with except THT, Nunn, Reaves, Gabriel, Monk, etc but majority are all vets like LeBron, AD, Westbrook, Melo so I wonder how Ham handles those veterans 🤔 because he will most likely bump heads with his vets constantly.

    Not to mention he would have to deal with the Rambises and Phil and Jeanie constantly. But if they allow him to pick his staff and they don't interfere at all then they will be just fine.

    Good hire, I was afraid they would cave to LBJ and hire Rivers.

    3 reasons the Lakers made the right decision by hiring Darvin Ham

    1) Heís not Doc Rivers

    Rivers wasnít necessarily the wrong guy for the job, but he hasnít exactly hit it out of the park in recent years, particularly in the postseason. The Lakers had an interest in Rivers, but a younger, fresher mind is a more inspired choice than a retread coaching his third team in four years.

    2) Heís a former player

    In the current NBA, players ó particularly stars ó hold more leverage than ever before. Understandably, hiring ex-pros to lead squads is in vogue.

    ďBesides Erik Spoelstra, all the other three thatís in the final four are ex-players,Ē Magic Johnson told The Athletic, speaking on the conference finals. ďSo I think that says a lot about these young ex-players who command respect right away, who have done it before. Iím not saying it has to be an ex-player, but Iím saying you have to look at whatís going on.Ē

    3) Gravitas

    At exit interviews, Rob Pelinka said the Lakers were prioritizing candidates with a commanding voice.
