ESPN gonna run with the "He knows how to stop LeBron" narrative.
[–]Lakers CokaWooo 586 指標 6小時前
But Spo who coached LeBron longer for some reason didn’t know how to.
Oh ESPN, never change.
[–]Pacers mayonkonijeti0876 79 指標 5小時前
And Spo is actually an excellent coach. If the Clips win anything, it is because of Kawhi, not Lue knowing the secrets of Lebron.

Let’s see how he does with the Clippers first before making this assumption.
[–]76ers ilive12 64 指標 6小時前
Don't matter if he can stop LeBron if they can't stop Denver. Needs to get the Clippers attitude to treat every game like an elimination game before anything good happens for them.

If they treat every game like an elimination game they're gonna blow a 15 point lead again

He needs to go through Golden State too, which will be a healthy team hungry for action.
[–]Heat fapmonster1999 19 指標 5小時前
Golden State been busy with their own bubble. Klay's been putting in the work. So have the others. Really excited for this team to come back because they've given us so much this past decade lmao.

Underwhelming season, great in the playoffs. Ty gets clowned for being apart of a dramatic Cavs team and making dumb faces, but I don’t think he’s a bad choice at all. I’m definitely excited about Chauncey being with him.
[–]Jazz SuperDuperJazzFan 22 指標 6小時前
So reverse Doc Rivers then?
[–]Raptors youarenotracist 17 指標 6小時前
He also was part of a team that made the most historic 3-1 comeback in NBA history against one of the best teams ever, while controlling a locker room that had Irving and by numerous reports Lue had to check Lebron numerous times. How in anyway is this not the go to hire for a Clippers team so similar?
[–]Registered to Vote Guardians_of_Pawnee 12 指標 6小時前
Exactly. Everyone calling this an L is just riding the Clippers hate bandwagon. Ty may be the perfect guy to control the egos on the Clippers.

Don’t understand the disrespect. He’s a championship coach and everyone acts like he’s trash. Why? Happy for him and excited to see what he can do.
[–]Trail Blazers Soap_MacLavish 46 指標 6小時前
Looks like a fish, is black etc, LeCoach. Many underlying causes. By all accounts, he's a good coach.
[–]Kings FarCavalry 42 指標 6小時前
Yeah I honestly believe this is it. His facial expressions look goofy and people assume that he’s dumb because of it. And probably some implicit racism. Absolutely no reason he shouldn’t be a highly sought after coach on his resume alone
[–]Bulls bleizar 348 指標 6小時前
If you coach a LeBron team that wins a chip you're always gonna have to prove yourself without him. Happened to Spo and he rose to the occasion
[–]Raptors VanVleet-goes-for-22 114 指標 6小時前
This is the reason.
Your team is always going to be good when you have LeBron, let’s see how your voice resonates when there’s a clear leadership void on the floor

How is he as a coach or analyst? Never watched him post his playing career.
Or is it like Nash, good player we hopes translates well into coaching?
[–]Lakers SloatThritter 28 指標 6小時前
He says obvious shit as an analyst and frankly doesn't come off well as a communicator. That has nothing to do with coaching so you never know.

Funny how Lue didn’t take the lakers job and it was probably the best thing for them
And now he can ruin the clippers
[–]Nets BasedGodProdigy 97 指標 6小時前
Ruin? I think he'll be good for them at least offensively - the key will be to make that offense a little less stale.
Defensively, you gotta hope he gets a solid assistant to take the reigns but I don't think this is a bad HC hire. .
Not very exciting but it's his 2nd gig and he might've learned from his mistakes.
[–]thePATRONEEmoa 62 指標 6小時前
Lue isn’t really known for defense, definitely offense but I don’t know if Kawhi will like to be told he’s playing like a bitch like Lue told LeBron lol
[–]Nets BasedGodProdigy 40 指標 6小時前
which is why I think he needs a solid defensive assistant
and Kawhi was definitely consulted on this hire - I think he will be fine
[–]LakersZurdo112 209 指標 6小時前
The main reason he didn’t take the job with the Lakers is because we offered him three years and he wanted five years. He felt it was disrespectful to offer an NBA champion coach only three years.
[–][OKC] Mustafa Shakur IncaseAce 53 指標 6小時前
I know that, and that ended up being a blessing in disguise
[–]NBA corgi_on_a_treadmill 22 指標 5小時前
Lakers probably still win the championship with Lue, although they'd have a worse defense.
[–]NBA mrdilldozer 17 指標 5小時前
Coaches, players, and GMs around the league all generally agree that he is a good coach. He has also shown that he can manage a team with multiple stars and keep egos in check (at least until the offseason). People on reddit and Twitter think he sucks. I dont know who to believe.
[–]goodolvj 3 指標 5小時前
Not arguing how good a coach Lue is or will be, but me might be the right guy to keep the stars accountable and make the tough rotation decisions. We've seen how problematic it was when doc refused to adjust for the bad matchup vs Denver, Lue isn't afraid to bench the dudes hurting the team in favor of playing the guys willing to do what it takes to win.
[–]Lakers MisterConbag15 35 指標 6小時前
I think Lue is a very solid coach. I don’t get why Lakers fans are celebrating this. Perfectly good hire.
[–]Lakersfocus_grouped 356 指標 6小時前
I’ll be the contrarian and say this is a great hire. I think Ty Lue showed during his Cavs runs that he is great at managing a locker room, and that is one of the biggest issues plaguing this team.
People are really unfair to Ty Lue. If the Durant Warriors didn’t exist we would talk about the 2017 Cavs as one of the greatest teams ever (they were). He is part of that success, not just LeBron and Kyrie. If anyone says “oh Steve Kerr isn’t a great coach he just has all these great players” we rightfully call them a dumbass, but Lue doesn’t get the same grace
[–]Rockets only_necessary 23 指標 6小時前
Thank you for having a Lakers flair and saying something positive, not that other flairs aren’t being highly disrespectful too. Just because it’s the clippers, doesn’t mean you gotta trash everything clips related.
[–]Trail Blazers Soap_MacLavish 94 指標 6小時前
This is where I get slightly uncomfortable. He coached the team that defeated the greatest team of all time coming back from 3-1. Regardless of LeBron, I feel like other coaches wouldn't have gotten this amount of blatant disrespect post-championship. If Blatt would have pulled it off (which he didn't because star management is a vital part of NBA coaching), it would have been "Blatt top 3 coach in the league?"

The Clippers locker room is a mess. This is the biggest benefit to hiring Ty Lue. The talent is still there

[–]Cavalierscavaleir 24 指標 4小時前
He took over the Cavs mid-season in 2016 and did an amazing job with the culture. Nobody knows how he'll work out but he seems like a great option for the Clippers.
[–]NBA qeheeen 4 指標 6小時前
Lue isn't afraid to call out his players, he would even do so on Lebron and Kyrie, I think with the lack of leadership rn in the clippers Lue can be a better voice than Doc
[–]Supersonics Soppoi 4 指標 6小時前
Doc Rivers rode his championship into 10 more years without any accomplishments. Let Lue have this and we'll judge him after this season.
