He passes at the age of 70.

 

 

 

“Frank Hamblen was a great coach and a good friend,” said Lakers Head Coach Luke Walton. “He was not only beloved by everyone in the Lakers organization but by those in the NBA community as well. Frank coached me as a rookie and in addition to all I learned from him on the court, he also emphasized how important it was to enjoy life off the court as well. My thoughts and prayers go out to Frank’s family. ”

RIP Coach. He was part of five Laker championships. He was our interim coach in 2005 after Rudy resigned and played a big part in reimplementing the Triangle after the Rudy Three fiasco. It was a tough job, but Frank did great. He then stayed on when Phil came back and helped bring home two more titles.

Betting they honor him before tonights game by saying something.

Probably Walton as no one else on team was here except Madsen?

 

RIP Frank

Praying for  1. Some Cohesion (Ill fitting parts with young bucks, new guys, and those playing for next contracts may muck things up all season) 2. Better Coaching, No More Tanking (Last season was more of the latter but not sure how much of the former we can count on. Walton with something to prove this season as much as any Laker player) 3. Rookie Watch (Hoping Lonzo outshines his daddy (ROTY??), and Kuzma finds minutes and makes a push for all rook 2nd team)

READY FOR SEASON!!!
