    I skimmed over this so fast yesterday on FB, that i assumed it meant he was top assistant for the lakers given his previous relationship with lebruh.

    At least for the time being it appears the Lakers have burned their bridges with Lue. We shall see though. If things go south with the Lakers who knows.

    It makes me wonder if Lue was that close to Lebron, why didn't he get the head coaching job with the Lakers?

    From a technical standpoint Lue turned down the Lakers offer to be the next head coach but I suspect it was because they couldn't reach an agreement. It was reported Lue wanted a 5 year contract not the 3 year contract offered.

    So he really isn't nba material, i wonder who kept him around the Suns org and even had him starting for us??? Seriously thank you James Jones for turning the roster over.

    The NBA and Kings have finished their investigation into the sexual assault allegations involving Luke Walton. They say there is insufficient evidence to act on it. The victim held a press conference today and is suing Walton.

    Here is a link to the NBA's comments about insufficient evidence.

    https://www.latimes.com/sports/stor...ton-kings-investigation-insufficient-evidence

    And here is a link to the accuser's story and press conference.
    https://www.latimes.com/sports/lake...exual-assault-allegations-20190423-story.html

    She said she never reported the assault to her employers or the police. This seems sketchy all around but she's pressing on anyway.

    Here's a link to a story mentioning that the police were never alerted of this "assault".

    This isn't something I'd want hanging over our head coach going into the season.

    Grizzlies recoup $2.6 million by Howard signing with Lakers. This works out well for Memphis.

    I was surprised he was still playing.
