    SAS racist af defending a mid coach because he’s a black man. So biased lol

    I don’t know if he will be successful at the NBA, some coaches are just better suited for college. I remember when Rick Pitino left college and coached the Knicks, it did not end well for him. Other college coaches like P.J. Carlesimo left Seton Hall to coach the Golden State Warriors and that did not end well for him either. There is a reason why Hall of Fame College Coaches like Dean Smith, John Thompson, Bobby Knight , John Wooden and Mike Krzyzewski never tried to coach in the NBA, they knew that college coaches have power and NBA coaches have no power. It is also hard for NBA coach to yell at a player who makes more than they do. There have been a lot of NBA coaches who were cursed out by their players. The nba player’s contract is guaranteed and coaches are easily replaceable, so the player is always going to win that argument.

    I see why Stephen A smith got rid of guys like Max Keller man and stopped having JJ reddick out. He doesn’t want people to provide any push back on his trash takes, just so he can push whatever narrative he wants 🤡

    Not throwing shade at Dan Hurley for his success at UConn, but he needs to stay in Stores, CT

    How are the lakers a “dysfunctional organization?” In the last 5 years, one chip, one WCf, playoffs every year and in season tournament winners. 25 other franchises with this 5 year run would probably qualify as their best ever.

      And on a third coach with 2. Top 10 players in the league

    • @jadephoenix9857

      June 7, 2024 at 6:36 pm

      Yeah not ideal. But the results are still better than 25 other teams in the league over that span. So I guess even while dysfunctional they still a better franchise than “functional” ones that have never won a title.

    Oh, and Frank Vogel won the chip, too. Vogel and Hamm were both scapegoated.

    So getting two shots at beating the same team and failing to do so, isn’t that reason to move on?! Not sure how many chances you need Stephen A. Get over it, Darvin made alot of mistakes by being stubborn. Adjustments that were obvious even to the casual. I get it Stephen a, he was your friend but he just wasn’t it.

    First Vogel was the issue. Now ham. Common denominator is the players

    We are about to see a Mark Jackson and Steve Kerr situation.

    I can longer support Steven A Smith

    OH GOD STOP DEFENDING HAM STEPHEN A if you had actually watched the laker games u would know ham was a bad coach

  18. @yonah10

    June 7, 2024 at 8:25 pm

    Lakers are in massive trouble if the best hire is a college coach😤🤦‍♂️

  19. @TreMac357

    June 7, 2024 at 9:21 pm

    I really want Ham to get a 2nd chance somewhere else so people can see that he just stands there with his hands in his pockets looking stupid. I doubt we see him in the head coaching position anytime soon.

  20. @REALJayDOTWill

    June 7, 2024 at 9:24 pm

    Anthony Davis said Ham couldn’t coach on the summer jam screen lol.

    LeBron & AD were beating the Nuggets for three quarters in spite of Ham and getting beat because the coaching broke down late in the games. Lol

  21. @MWTA312

    June 7, 2024 at 9:26 pm

    I’m so tired of everyone in national media trying to paint this narrative that Ham did a good job !! Ham was horrible 😂

    All this talk, watch what happens…..

    No coach is going to make the Lakers better. They need another star.

  24. @imarura

    June 7, 2024 at 10:20 pm

    Yea two years in a roll getting out of play-ins. With that roster, Ham was unfit for the job.

    I disagree ! Denver never beat us! Darvin ham’s inexperience beat us
