“I just saw you fire your championship coach”

The LA Lakers continue to look for a head coach ahead of the NBA season. While there have been numerous potential coaches associated with this work, the franchise has yet to make a final decision.

It was recently reported that the candidates were questioned by Rob Pelinka and management about how they would best get the most out of Russell Westbrook.

“First Things First” analyst Kevin Wildes has resisted asking such questions to potential coaches in interviews. He shared what the proper answer to such a question should be.


He said the correct answer should be “so if you want me to coach, I don’t want Russell Westbrook on the team.” He was of the opinion that if the coach took such a stance, he would most likely get the job.

“I think the coaching staff, all the coaches or potential coaches for the Lakers are being asked, ‘How are you going to use Russ? “. “You know what the right answer is? I wouldn’t. If Russ was on this team, I wouldn’t want to be the coach.

“I just saw you fire your championship coach because he didn’t know how to use Russ. When Russ in the reports was told ‘Yes, we can get the ball up,'” and Russ said. , “No, I’m putting the ball up. ‘ So if you want me to coach, I don’t want Russell Westbrook on the team. That is actually the correct answer. “

Which direction will the Lakers go next season?

With the next NBA season a few months away, the LA Lakers have time to figure out the team. Immediate potential issues that need to be addressed include securing a competent head coach and Russell Westbrook’s stance on the situation.

While the franchise is on track to find a replacement for Frank Vogel, there has been no clear response from the main office on the team’s stance in Westbrook. While some predict he will be transferred from the franchise, others firmly believe he will be kept and that he will have a great season.

These are key pressure points that the Lakers will be looking to overcome and address before training camp. While the direction the front office will take is still unknown, the Lakers Nation wishes to make a decision that is in the best interest of the team.
