Lakers Need a Coach That Doesn’t Mind Being Stepped Over, and They Are in Negotiations with Him

The Lakers are having a tough time finding their new head coach. It was no secret the position was going to become available either. The writing was on the wall as soon as LeBron signed his contact. The problem was that Luke Walton wanted too much power to be the coach of LeBron. By that, I mean Luke Walton wanted 10% control and that just so happens to be 10% too much.

How does one coach LeBron James? How do you tell one of the best basketball players who has ever lived what he can or cannot do on the court? You can’t. But due to NBA rules, you have to have a coach on the bench, so there is only one option for the Lakers… a coach that won’t coach. A coach that doesn’t mind being walked on or, dare I say, stepped over.

And wouldn’t ya know it, Yahoo Sports’ Chris Haynes has confirmed that the Lakers and Tyronn Lue are in negotiations to make him the next head coach of the Los Angeles Lakers with Frank Vogel as an assistant.

So, congratulations to everyone (expect for the idiots that thought John Calipari was interested), you were right. It’s a no-brainer decision really. The only other option was Jason Kidd, who would have done an equally nothing job, but Ty Lue has a proven track record of staying out of LeBron’s way. Now, all that is left is to get two more all-stars, some decent role players, an amazing shooter and JR Smith and we may just see another LeBron championship.
