    One embarrassing moment after another for the Lakers. Clipper Darrell has more friends than any of these protestors put together. Do tumbleweeds blowing in the wind count as protestors? ?

    Where are all the other teams knocking down Ty Lue’s door to offer him a bigger contract? 18 million is a lottery ticket for that guy. This outrage is beyond absurd.

    Looks as if they feel that they need a black coach, yet they jerk them on the terms and money, as is the case for all pro sports.
