  1. james worthy deserves to be the gm or wilt chamberlain…
    that spurs asst. which was uploaded previously is the best fit for next headcoaching job, I forgot the name…


  3. Don't do it Lue. Your ticker can't take it.

  4. Lebron really is trying to make Lakers , Cavs 2.0 huh ? And the Lakers franchise will be left just as broken as the Cavs were because of that stupid decision. That 'Cavs' don't work on West… and Ty Lue is not even a better coach than Luke Walton. He will only be a candidate so Lebron can walk over him like Allen Iverson did.
    Why not cut to the chase and put Lebron in every Lakers role ? Because that is why it seems to be happening…and it is an insult the Lakers Franchise.

  5. My top 3 choices:

    1) Mark Jackson
    2) Mark Jackson
    3) Mark Jackson

    If I had it pick someone else, I’d probably pick Mark Jackson.

  6. Lakers fans don't want no damn ty Luke we want mark Jackson like if I'm right Lakers fans

  7. I wish Woj did this alone other dude was annoying

  8. Rob most definitely need to be next to go!!! For coach=Mark Jackson,Ty Lue or Lionel Hollins!!! Montey Williams shouldn’t be in this conversation not say he’s a bad coach just not for the Lakers at this moment. Plus the Grizzlies should go n get montey

  9. His cavs team played like shit, no gameplan whatsoever, was basically lebron being amazing by himself… he never showed any sign of being a good coach

  10. lebron: good, now lets get ty lue from the dumpster and pick up jr smith at the liquor spot

  11. Maybe Jeannie has the hots for Rob…he’s a lot younger than Phil…lol

  12. So no Mark Jackson and Jason Kidd? Guess they are afraid to hire someone who can yell at LBJ…

  13. who allows this nerd to talk basketball???? he should write ready stories and that it is all!!! pathetic!! when you start to show up, where you do not belong!!

  14. People calling him a great coach while he was on the warriors lol. He sucked. Warriors just made him look good.

  15. Good for Luke!!! He’s was not happy since Lebron got there… and ty Lue almost dam near died last season he coached Lebron in Cleveland….

  16. I hate these choices..Ty Lue & Monte…it should be Jason Kidd..maybe Mark Jackson..
    this notion that Ty Lue has Lakers ties, you mean when Iverson stepped over him? LeBron was the Cavs coach.
    & Monte, respectfully, his life was altered forever by that accident, he'll never be @ full potential.

  17. Yet Lebron is still there. It's the same song and dance.

  18. Trade LEBRON and start a rebuilding program.
    Invest in a new coach with a fresh approach. Hire Tony Bennett

  19. That guy thought he was funny with the Iverson comment with his balding ass.

  20. Ty Lue almost died because he couldn’t handle coaching Lebron. He’s also one of the worst coaches I’ve ever seen. Why the fuck would you hire him

  21. I was all in LeBron Lakers..then injuries forced a panicked trade attempt, that would rid of all good young players that Magic picked, for one AD..that tore the team up
    ..& LeBron not even speaking to Luke is so fvkd up..they were backstabbing Magic, brought him to tears, forced his hand to step down abruptly. he's doesn't need this drama, he's a legend.
    LeBron's arrival wouldve been a a good thing, but these moves he got away with in good in LA. his best run was in Miami under Riley/Spolktra for checks & balances.
    give LeBron too much power, where he's the coach, gm, president, his teammates panic or kiss up, 'cause they know he's the real boss. Its too imbalanced, can't sustain like this, I'm out.
