Lakers and Luke Walton Mutually Agree to Part Ways

Some Laker fans will be happy to see this happen and some will undoubtedly not. People feel Luke Walton is one of the reasons we had a really bad season with bad rotations taking people out at the wrong time, but others feel injuries were the primary issue. The team finished 37-45, making it the third straight losing season.  2016: 26-56, 2017: 35-47


The two front runners for a replacement are Ty Lue and Monty Williams, the 76ers assistant. We all know the past Ty Lue had with LeBron, but Monty Williams might be a name you haven’t heard. He has experience with LeBron as the Assistant coach for team USA and has had successful runs as the Pelicans head coach. Ty Lue is a championship winning coach, ex-Lakers player, and LeBron James approved.


Lakers fans, I want your opinion. Was this the right move for the Lakers? Or did Luke Walton deserve another chance with a fully healthy roster through the whole year (we hope)?
