Tyronn Lue deserves to be the next head coach for the Los Angeles Lakers. Lue won a championship in 2016 with the Cleveland Cavaliers and LeBron James. The Lakers need a coach that can work with LeBron James and understand how to hold him accountable.
The bond that Lue and James have together after winning a championship together is unbreakable. No other candidates out there are winners and have rings to show for it but Lue does. The Lakers are clearly going to hire Tyronn Lue within the next week.
The dysfunction of the Lakers since the sudden departure of team President Magic Johnson has put a bad mark on the Lakers. This hiring of Tyronn Lue can start something new and good moving forward for the Lakers. This past season was a disaster for the Lakers organization and disappointing for LeBron James first season in LA. The NBA draft is the next step for the Lakers as they move forward to building a contending roster. Tyronn Lue can help in the selection of the players that the Lakers may pick in the draft. It’s important to select players that fit into Lue’s system.
The Phoenix Suns hired Monty Williams today so that leaves the Lakers with an easy choice for their next head coach. LeBron James may have 2 more years as a top 5 or 6 player in the league and it’s important to maximize his final years of his prime to win a championship.
James obviously needs another star caliber player alongside of him in order to compete in the Western Conference. LeBron James being comfortable with his coach is important for him to play at his best next season.
