  • Don't disrespect Ty Lue because he coached Lebrons team. Most coaches that coach Brons team will have success. Why? Because Lebron is recognized as the best player in the league, and still recruits other super stars to create super teams to chase rings. The 2nd best player on Brons team is usually better than 95% of the whole league. Name a coach that couldn't get Lebron, Kyrie, and Love to the finals every year in the weak east. Gtfoh

  • The one exception to Max's point about bigs not winning without a non-big almost as good as them was Bill Russell. There were other good players on those Celtics teams, but none of them were close to Russell's level.

  • The last time a coach got in Kawhi’s face (CoachPop), he mentally folded and broke from the whole program. Yell at Kawhi and he will physically disappear for weeks. And the team calls it load management.

  • You wanna approach that dual Paul George needs to go....they don't need those two on the same team neither have leadership skills...It would have been better to have just added Kawii to the team. Rondo go to Clippers the jealousy and envy will result in the same thing a bounce out the playoff and no ring. If I was Rhondo I would not risk it...I'd run it back with AD & Bron

  • If the Clippers doesnt win next year....almost all of the Clippers players can opt out. They have no Picks. Ty Lue will be back to square 1 for the next 4 years like what happend to cleveland after james left. I guess thats what he wants a rebuild. He picked the clippers over the lakers

Anthony Davis is going to win another NBA Championship back to back. Ty Lue should have been the Lakers Coach? No , but good try. Great Clippers and i need a Coaching Job! Holla at me Ty Lue. Lol. I would take the job. Frank! Frank will win 4 straight may 5. Frank is set up by Miss Buss. She is going down BIG TIME IN HISTORY as the BEST EVER OWNER IN THE HISTORY OF THE NBA. WATCH.

  • I have no idea why Lue doesn't get any blame for the poor performance of the Clippers. He is part of the coaching staff. The guy is overrated. He won 1 championship with LEBRON!!!! He took for David Blatts job only coz Lebron wanted him too. That's all... check his record... its the same as Blatts record before he was taken out during their championship season. He is overrated because the media keeps telling people that he is such a great coach but technically he hasn't proven that without Lebron!

    Jackie MJackie M9 ditë më parë
  • Media actin as if Ty Lue was a great coach, meanwhile he was only able to win one single championship with a LeBron Team and this was only because of LeBron‘s leadership and god-mode not because of Lues coaching abilities. If I were Kawhi I would‘ve stayed in Toronto where he was beloved. Also he is not the type of personality to play for a team that is in the limelight of the media
