: : : : Tyrone Lue is definitely not the coach for the Lakers. He does not develop
: : : : young plsyers and his ms defensive woes were equal to or no better than the current Lakers squad. Hereís my problem with Luke though - it doesnít appear he can coach or get this teams to play championship defense or close out games. Quite frankly, itís still early but Luke hasnít proven he is a developer of young talent either and that is becoming is serious issue.The Lakers are 9-10 deep. As such, there is no readon for guys to not sell out on defense. The key here is can Luke teach these young guys to play tough disciplined defense without commiting foolish fouls. Luke must prove he can improve the defensive IQ of the young guys; otherwise, the Lakers need to bring in an assistant coach who is a defensive specialist and communicator.
: : While I agree that Lue can't solve all problems, the Cavs were halfway decent on defense at times even with guys like Korver, Love, and Clarkson on the floor, and all the while LeBron was taking plays off at the 3.
: : At least Lue will take care of LeBron, Luke played him the last 14 minutes of the game tonight in an effort to save his job. That will run him into the ground, he's already averaging more minutes than he is years old so far this season. Lue would not lose sight of the bigger picture, only concern is Lue's health, he suffers from anxiety. Bielein (sp?) from Michigan is another possible choice.
Love the expert analysis and suggestions on who would be better than Luke Walton. Let the Drama queen Lebron coach the team, "is another possible choice".
