It will be interesting to see how Luke handles Rondo's return with Zo playing so well as of late... the team is in a groove.

Phil Jackson needs to be considered.

NO and NO. The game has passed him up.

No way. This is an analytics based game. Just like every other sport and competitive endeavor. The game passed Phil by long ago.

Bring in a damn shooting coach.

Shouldn’t need someone to come in and teach professional NBA players how to shoot free throws, but apparently, we’ve reached that point.

I've explained this.  Fans get it wrong, not coaches and players.  

 

 

Find a playbook.  Look at the numbers/positions for the play.  Positionless basketball means that if a C has the skills to execute the role of the 2/3 in a play, you can run that play with the C playing the 2/3.

 

It doesn't mean there are no positions.  That's an overly simplistic view that points to ignorance of the concept, not a flawed concept.

According to our resident coaching expert😂Luke is responsible for a lot of the good things we have done this year. 🤦‍♂️ He’s deployed sets from the warriors those same sets he’s only been trying to implement for years! LMAO unsuccessfully. Memo to Lukas. WE ARE NOT THE WARRIORS. Quit stealing from Kerr and build an offense around what we have. He’s an assistant coach that lucked into interim coaching successfully one of the greatest teams of all time. I give him zero credit for that accomplishment or anything this year. These vets are running the show, these kids are just trying to figure out where and how they fit.


Bye for now

Im not saying he won't help but KCP really didn't improve.  He just had a terrible start but at this point anything can help lol

Veterans, including Beasley, JaVale McGee and Lance Stephenson, challenged Walton in postgame locker room, sources said. Those involved were separated before anything escalated.

Probably because he told Lebron and ADs agent to request a trade and put it out in the news media....

Or maybe because Walton decided to sit Lebron down a game

Walton is done, look for Mark Jackson from Klutch Sports to run the Los Angeles Lebrons

Heard the same. Josh Hart, Michael Beasley and JaVale McGee were frustrated and got a bit heated, but it never came close to getting physical, I’m told.

Seriously no one saw this coming? Lebron, Klutch Sports, players that could take the blame. This is going to one of the worst 4 years in Laker history. I thought Magic and Pelinka were smarter than this but we should have all remembered Magic as a player/coach..
