    The next coach for lebron to fire has been hired:

    LOS ANGELES — A person with knowledge of the decision says Darvin Ham has accepted an offer to be the next head coach of the Los Angeles Lakers.

    The person spoke with The Associated Press on Friday on condition of anonymity because the deal has not been publicly announced.

    The 48-year-old Ham is getting his first head coaching job as the 28th coach in Lakers history. He has been an assistant to Mike Budenholzer with the Milwaukee Bucks since 2018, and he played a role in their run to the 2021 NBA title.

    Ham will be the successor to Frank Vogel, who was fired one day after the Lakers wrapped up one of the most disappointing seasons in NBA history by going 33-49 and missing the playoffs.

      This is like drinking vinegar but it looks like the Chowders are heading to the Finals against the Chardonnay Warriors. Heat Culture suffers from the same flaw as the pre championship raptors. You never had the best player on the floor late in a playoff run.

      So who ya got in the Finals...
      Chowdah or Chardonnay?

      Chowdahs

      God I hope this ages well.
      So it aged .. barely.

      So its the now veteran team in GSW up against the new kids from the east who for the first time in more than a decade are in the NBA Finals. Curry and Thompson and Draymond vs Brown and Tatum and Smart. Both teams have solid rotation players. GSW is may;be a bit deeper.
      Still.
      Bostons defense travels well.
      Chow-dah's in 6 or less.

              IF they win, last 8 years:

              6 finals appearances
              4 titles (2 without KD, on each end of his run)

              Greatest team since the 90s Bulls.

              To me, this makes KDs Finals MVPs even MORE fake. Warriors are back again, quite easily, with lesser of a Klay Thompson than before but Poole replacing KD. KD left to go play with another all world player and didn't win a single playoff game.

                  People love to dismiss Steph in the all time great rankings. But if they pull this off he has 4 titles in 6 appearances. LeBron is what 4 for 10?

                    you know KD is punchin the air rn. He probably never thought GS would win another title when he left and Klay had the injury...this will just hurt his run in peoples eyes even more lol

                        Actually the only reason he left was because he felt slighted that the perception was they didn't need him to win & he was just riding the bus. But now KD stuck between two knuckle heads (Kyrie & Simmons) he probably misses the guys who don't make excuses in Golden States.

                        Age & reality caught up to KD quickly.

                          it's because ppl are only capable of conceiving of a "best player" who dominates the ball and who generates the best scoring chances in iso. durant was the "best player" on the warriors by that definition, hence his finals MVP's, even though the entire success of the offence revolved around curry's movement, shooting, and screening. by that measure steph should have been MVP for all of them, which i have been shouting for years.

                          curry should be approaching magic johnson status in the all-time rankings imo. each of them have made their teammates better than anybody else in my lifetime, they just go about it completely differently (magic with the ball, curry largely without it).

                          meanwhile lebron actively made his teammates worse, which i suspect is also probably the case for other ball dominant players (like luka)

                            jayson tatum was 14 when he said that about two players who were in high school at the time.

                            he was also probably already being recruited by duke, hence backing the one who committed to duke

                              Meh. What if Lebron got drafted into a better organization? What if Steph got drafted by the Knicks? There's a lot more that goes into winning championships after you acquire the superstar. Steph was fortunate, because you have to admit the Warriors have been run like a well-oiled machine since Lacob, Myers and Kerr have been the leadership. Light years ahead, they arrogantly said, and that's been mostly true... on and off the court.

                                But lebron agreed he was going to win "not 1, not two, not three" just in Miami
                                He's also been the best player in every Finals and lost more than he's won ....
