His offensive playbook is much better and he’s proven he can maximize LeBron if given a proper roster...so I don’t think he’s a lateral move from Walton. A significant upgrade? Probably not.

But he’s good enough...I immediately see most of our late game troubles disappearing.

Also, Lue was a defensive guy and in charge of that for the Clippers before becoming a full-time coach. The Cavaliers have done ok, he’s done a good job scheming and making adjustments to defensive gameplans through the years and from reg season to playoffs. When they haven’t had the personnel, they’ve sucked of course.

Offense: Lue by a lot
Defense: Luke by a little
Locker room mgmt: Lue, LeBron factor
Rotations: Lue by a little
In-Game Adjustments: Lue by a considerably large amount

I do have some concerns, but I’ll give the guy a shot.

We're just settling for the same thing. If Lue struggles next year then he will be fired as well. How many coaches are we going to go through in a single decade?

I expect them to hire Lue because of the LeBron factor and the urgency to maximize his remaining years. When I said I have concerns, it’s about Lue being a long-term fit and how he’d function on a roster minus LeBron and whether he’s only here for 2 + 1 more years.

I was hoping Luke could be an anchor for the Lakers like Spo, Stevens, Atkinson, Snyder, Stotts...unfortunately that didn’t work and I doubt that this front office is thinking 5 years ahead anymore. Not with LeBron here.

If we get Davis and another big time FA, I doubt Lue vs Williams will matter. Walton got the David Blatt treatment, imo. 

 

Same reason we're not going after Messina. No time for a young coach. We need someone with experience who can come in and make changes right away. Messina would have been good 2 years ago, but now, it's too much of a game. Not with LeBron having only 2 years left before his player option.

I agree that landing a Max FA is very important but we have to do things differently this time.

 

I'm not in favor of ANY coaching candidate before we hire a PBO.

 

I question whether Luke was the right person for the job but when he got the job, he had a "do your best mandate".

Lakers fired the PBO and GM who gave Luke that mandate.

Lakers hired a PBO and GM who wanted to win now.

The new PBO and GM brought in a Star at the end of his career.

The new star tried to give Luke and the team a year to grow.  It didn't work out.

 

Magic quit because he didn't have full control.

We should not make the same mistake again.
 
 
The next coach won't have a CHANCE if the PBO and GM don't have complete faith in him.  We can't keep doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.

Does it matter if Lue is a long term fit? He'll be here as long as LeBron is. That's why I think we should just promote Rob and not hire a team president. When this LeBron experiment is over we clean house from the top down.

It will matter to Free Agents this summer so yes, it matters.

As opposed to the tanking seasons actually having expectations this year and failing to meet them combined with the Magic bombshell has brought the hope level of the fan base to an all time low.

If it’s down to those two, I’d lean toward Monty Williams, only because we’ve seen the Lue-LeBron story before...

Hire Lue and get it over with, then see if Monty would accept the lead assistant role to try and lure AD in 2020. I dunno

Either way, this organization is trash right now. 6 years of crap and this will keep going until Jeanie sells or gives the power to a smarter Buss in Joey and Jesse.

Really? You interview a man for a job and then put him as assistant to that same job, assisting his competitor?

I wonder if Juwan Howard has the best chance of landing the Lakers' head coaching job since Rob & Juwan were Fab 5 teammates.

Ty Lue: to placate LeBron, not because he's a good coach. 

Monty Williams: to make a desperate plea to AD of "Hey.. you worked with him before. Don't you wanna do it again!?"

Nothing to do with the best basketball moves.


Ideally it would be Messina or Hammon and pushing hard for Adrian Griffin as an assistant coach or defensive one.  

But the Lakers aren't making their moves based around the best basketball decisions if Ty Lue and Monty Williams are their two top choices.  We know exactly why it's specifically those two, and 'best basketball decision' isn't the reason for any.

"Bryant had come to rage against the idea that Howard's clownish disposition could overtake the locker room, the Lakers' culture, and had warned Howard that he would never, ever let it happen."
