At long (like, loooooong) last, the Lakers have finally hired a coach. As widely anticipated, save one brief/public with UConn's Dan Hurley, the new guy in town is JJ Redick, whose communication skills, charisma, and basketball intellect are being bet on to offset having never coached anybody older than children. Is this a brilliant roll of the dic…

Lakers have made if officially official! JJ Redick is now your head coach of the Los Angeles Lakers! Much to be discussed in this episode so not much else of a description needs to be written, these are JC De Leon's immediate thoughts to the news upon hearing the news once it broke. SUBSCRIBE, Rate and Review on iTunes and make sure to follow @Etho…

Well, the script writers are at it again. Have we entered PLOT TWIST character? Monty Williams -- the same Monty Williams who was a prime choice for the Lakers a few years back and turned them down before they eventually landed on Frank Vogel -- was let go by Detroit with approximately 11 years and $9 billion left on his contract. So with the proce…

In the end, we finished where we started. JJ Redick—who began the process as the frontrunner, then went back to the front of the line after a brief flirtation with UConn head coach Dan Hurley—agreed to a four-year deal with the Lakers, worth about $8 million a year. So the Lakers got their man to succeed Darvin Ham. There's plenty of intrigue built…

With the Finals in our collective rear view mirror (maybe not THAT far in our collective rear view mirror but nonetheless in it), ESPN has it's first edition of the 2024-25, admittedly way too early Power Rankings. Of course, the idea of ranking teams now, when so much is going to change and we are almost literally as far as we'll be bfeore anyone …

Yeah, everyone saw. In a series that was about as lacking in drama as a series could have, the Boston Celtics polished off the Dallas Mavericks Monday night to win an 18th NBA title, putting them back ahead of the Lakers for most in league history. And it doesn't take a crackerjack NBA analyst to note that they are in much better position to keep a…

JJ Redick was in LA this weekend, meeting with the team for his "most formal" round of interviews yet, via the LA Times. How quickly the Lakers move from here is a matter of debate. On the one hand, it certainly seems like the Lakers are facing a time crunch, with the draft rolling around at the end of the month, and free agency starting soon after…

The Dan Hurley Saga is over, sort of. As the postmortem continues on this relatively short but extremely interesting chapter in Lakers history (people still talk about Coach K turning them down 20 years later), there's still the matter of finding the coach for next season. To that end, you'll never guess who is, reportedly, back in front... Or mayb…

No NBA franchise, save perhaps Celtics the has more names who could legitimately be placed on its proverbial Mt. Rushmore than the Los Angeles Lakers. And even with all that competition, it would be impossible to put together an honorary like that without including Jerry West. A man who would make a compelling case to be on the league's Mt. Rushmor…

A couple days after Dan Hurley turned down the Lakers, the news around the NBA is still very much centered around the fact that Dan Hurley turned down the Lakers. Everything about the story, from how it has been covered and who broke what (i.e. Woj vs. Shams) to big questions about the Lakers brand, the competence of the Lakers front office and whe…

It was going to be a big Monday one way or another, but it went the wrong way for the Lakers. UConn head coach Dan Hurley will remain UConn head coach. He turned down an offer from the Lakers reported to be worth $70 million over six years. That's a lot of money, no doubt, but was it the right offer for this situation? Or even close? A very solid a…
  continue reading
 
Well, the news indeed arrived on Monday, and it wasn't what Lakers fans wanted to hear. Dan Hurley said thanks, but no thanks, to the Lakers, and will remain in Storrs, Connecticut to coach the Huskies. So the Lakers are still without a head coach, except now they have a high profile failure in the headlines. Why did they fail? It's possible that H…
  continue reading
 
The Lakers, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reports, made a "compelling case" to be the team's next head coach. Hurley was "extremely impressed" by the "compelling vision" offered by management on how to bring his program and ethos to Los Angeles and build a new era of success with the team. So will it work? We'll find out today, he says. It's hard to re…

The Lakers shocked the NBA world Thursday when the news broke (via Woj) that the Lakers are pursing UConn head coach Dan Hurley for their open head coaching gig. They are, reportedly, ready and willing to pay through the wazoo and commit to a lengthy deal in order to entice Hurley to leave Storrs. They're intrigued by Hurley's ability to develop yo…
  continue reading
 
As far as Woj Bombs go, this one was atomic. The Lakers, he says, are targeting and have entered negotiations with UConn head coach Dan Hurley to become their next head coach. This was extremely shocking news, as everyone -- like truly everyone who does reporting on this -- didn't see it coming. All of the attention has been on ESPN's JJ Redick, an…
  continue reading
 
The Lakers are, presumably, waiting for the NBA Finals to end so the can go ahead and hire JJ Redick to be their next head coach. Redick, for his part, isn't commenting. Or says he won't until the Finals are over. Probably at his introductory press conference. So until anyone says otherwise, let's assume Redick is the guy. How exactly did we get he…
  continue reading
 
For weeks, the Lakers have been attached to ESPN's JJ Redick as the leading name in their search for a head coach. Nothing has come along to change the idea that the gig is Redick's to lose. Tuesday, that sense only grew stronger, as Shams Charania of The Athletic reported that the Lakers are "zeroing in on (Redick) as the front-runner to be the fr…
  continue reading
 
Lots of response to Monday's show, looking at the relative value of potentially available players like Chicago's Zach LaVine and Washington's Kyle Kuzma, and why raw talent isn't necessarily the best metric to use when deciding who to do after. There's a tricky calculus in play that also involves cost in salary and cost in talent, what's left over …
  continue reading
 
The Lakers are still feeling out that space between stars and depth. Depth and stars. But what about those guys who are big names but may not qualify as either? Like Chicago's Zach LaVine, who seems perpetually on the trade block now, and therefore always rumored to be a future Laker. The Bulls, reportedly, are getting LaVine back out on the market…

Earlier this week, we noted an interview done by our friend Trevor Lane of Lakers Nation fame with Taurean Prince in which Prince stated his hope that he's back with the team next season. He also talked about the team more broadly, reflecting on whether he believes they should try to run it back with continuity, or if the team needs big changes to …
  continue reading
 
Not that he was every really in play, but Ty Lue, the Lakers aspirational coach (who, of course, could/should have been hired a few years ago) finally came to an agreement with the Clippers that will keep him on their sidelines for the next five years. Maybe Rob Pelinka was secretly holding out hope that somehow Lue would become available. Well, no…

Things are taking a turn. Tuesday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reported that Bronny James has been invited by 10 or so teams to work out with them ahead of the NBA Draft. Nothing unusual there. Except James is only going to accept two of them. Phoenix, and the Lakers. Now that, if it holds is unusual. Bronny is not exactly in a position, based o…

The Lakers are reportedly ready to open up their coaching search a little wider this week, with interviews with the big batch of well-regarded assistants (David Adelman, Micah Nori, Chris Quinn) expected to happen relatively soon. In the meantime, it's a perfect time to get into the Locked On Lakers mailbag (found in the community section of the Yo…
  continue reading
 
The Lakers head coaching search is going slowly, in part because the apparent frontrunner still has a gig calling games for ESPN. Reports from Shams Charania (and others) continue to put JJ Redick at the front of the line for the Lakers, even while more interviews are set to happen this week, followed by another round of more intensive interviews a…
  continue reading
 
There hasn't been a ton of news out of El Segundo as the Lakers slow play their coaching search and nobody can really do much about next season from a personnel standpoint, because the playoffs are still happening. But on Thursday, the calm was shaken just a little bit. BJ Bickerstaff was let go by the Cleveland Cavaliers. Now in theory, that could…

The Lakers and their two stars got some good news Wednesday, when the league announced its All-NBA squads for the season. LA was represented by Anthony Davis (2nd Team) and LeBron James (3rd Team). Not super surprising, but still a nice honor for two very worthy players. (You could argue, too, that LeBron deserved Kawhi Leonard's spot on the 2nd Te…

Well, the interview process is off and running! The Athletic reports that the Lakers have met with JJ Redick, James Borrego and Sam Cassell for their vacant head coaching position, and plan to meet with David Adelman, Micah Nori and Chris Quinn before things are said and done. But for now, the infatuation with Redick appears to be just that. The La…

Brian's lost his voice, but Harrison Faigen (SBNation) took his place to discuss- after an "Earth 2" victory lap about being "proven right" that the Lakers would be in the Western Conference Playoffs had they listened to him and tanked vs. the Pelicans during the play-in to avoid Denver - Shams Charania's report that LeBron James, despite all appea…

Well, it was fun while it lasted. Earlier this week, it was reported that the Lakers were among the teams that were ready to go with an offer for Cleveland star Donovan Mitchell should he become available. After all, there have been persistent questions about whether or not Mitchell would agree to a (very lucrative) extension with the Cavs, or try …
  continue reading
 
The dirt has barely settled on the 2023-24 season for the Cleveland Cavaliers after they lost to Boston in Game 5 Wednesday night, but that means it's now time to talk about the future of Donovan Mitchell. The Cavs star has the opportunity to sign an extension worth A LOT of money to stay where he is for a while, but at the same time, there have be…
  continue reading
 
Things are shifting, at least a bit, as the Lakers begin their coaching search in earnest this week. Reports indicate that JJ Redick is still at the head of the class, but rather than former Nets coach Kenny Atkinson filling the role of "guy with experience as a head coach," the Lakers are more focused on former Hornets/Magic coach James Borrego. A…

The offseason has begun, we're now out of the Darvin Ham era, and the future has more questions than it does answers. What else is new with the Lakers though? JC is here to talk about the Darvin Ham firing, the potential replacements, some Bronny James updates and much more in the latest EthosLakers. Enjoy! SUBSCRIBE, Rate and Review on iTunes and …

The Lakers were not participants in the weekend's NBA Draft Lottery. Not directly, at least. Indirectly, however? Yeah, they're involved. Because when the Atlanta Hawks won the thing (despite only having a 3% chance of doing so), earning the top pick, it added an unexpected wrinkle to this offseason. If the Hawks decide to put guards Trae Young and…
  continue reading
 
The Lakers don't seem to be in a massive hurry to get something done vis-a-vis the coaching search, since two big names are off the market (Mike Budenholzer, Charles Lee), one isn't likely to get there (Ty Lue) and the only other open job belongs to the Washington Wizards. Meanwhile, oft-named candidates are still occupied, whether that's David Ade…
  continue reading
 
Thursday was a busy one on the NBA coaching carousel, which is obviously a matter of import for the Lakers. First, Charlotte hired Charles Lee, a top assistant on Boston's staff and long seen as a name to watch in coaching circles. He was on LA's list, but not seen as a priority candidate by most reports. Meanwhile, in Phoenix, Mike Budenholzer is …
  continue reading
 
How unpopular is Darvin Ham among Lakers fans? Well, for starters, at least according to a poll on the show's YouTube page, fans would rather see Phil Jackson return—nearly 79 year old projector of intense "these teenagers need to get off my lawn" energy and once insulter of LeBron James Phil Jackson—than give the keys to Mike Budenholzer, who isn'…
  continue reading
 
As the Lakers were losing (again) to the Denver Nuggets in the first round of the NBA Playoffs, it felt like they were far enough away from the defending champs that the deficit couldn't be placed entirely at the feet of Darvin Ham. Somewhere near his feet? Sure. A good chunk of that blame? Ok. But to the point where you'd say the Lakers would win …
  continue reading
 
The Lakers have to find a new head coach, meaning there are a lot of decisions in front of them, some small, some large. But even before it comes time to actually start the interviews and begin negotiations with a preferred candidate, the Lakers need to decide a couple things, themselves. First, what do they really want in a coach? What qualities d…
  continue reading
 
Defenders of Darvin Ham—and while Lakers Nation isn't exactly full of them, there are some whether among fans or in the (generally national) media—have pointed out since the Lakers canned Ham (ha!) Friday afternoon that it's not fair to blame him for everything that went wrong this year. Darvin wasn't "the" problem. The "real" problem was something…
  continue reading
 
The inevitable just became reality. On Friday, the Lakers announced that Darvin Ham has been relieved of his duties as head coach of the Lakers. It's no surprise that Ham is out because all signs pointed in this direction, but it's actually pretty shocking that Ham, after doing such a good job building buy-in as a rookie coach with LeBron James, An…
  continue reading
 
WHAT'S TAKING SO LONG? While not exactly the sentiment of every Lakers fan... it's the sentiment of many when it comes to the expected dismissal of Darvin Ham from his gig with the Lakers. After all, reports following LA's Game 5 loss to the Nuggets earlier in the week suggested Ham's job was all but gone. Subsequent reports say the Lakers are stil…
  continue reading
 
The immediate business ahead of the Lakers is deciding, or perhaps just finding the right time to announce, the future of Darvin Ham. But while everyone waits on that—and the Lakers did in fact conduct exit interviews internally (and away from probing questions from media types)—one could certainly assume that major stakeholders were asked not just…
  continue reading
 
The Lakers have a lot of decisions to make this offseason, but without question the highest profile choice is about Darvin Ham. Does LA fire him, as is the broad expectation based on multiple reports? If so, why? For starters, you can look to a few recent quotes, some from after Monday's loss and more in a story published by ESPN following the game…
  continue reading
 
When those who defend the Lakers talk about how the distance between them and the best teams in the league isn't necessarily that big, Monday's Game 5 loss to the Nuggets, eliminating the Lakers from the postseason, is what they're talking about. Jamal Murray, once again, was the catalyst. He scores Denver's final five points, and they beat LA 108-…
  continue reading
 
Playoff series often hinge on the fairly random prospect of who is available and who is not when the games need to be played. You can be the second best team in the East, but if Giannis and Dame are injured, you might just lose in the first round to Indiana. The Lakers, while they've enjoyed a good run of health from Anthony Davis and LeBron James …
  continue reading
 
The Lakers had lost 11 in a row to the Denver Nuggets, including seven straight in the playoffs. 12 would send them home for the summer. And, finally, mercifully, the Lakers got a win. Like it was in the first three games, the Lakers built up a lead. For the third time in the series, they built that lead to double digits. But for the first time in …

The Lakers have proven their critics correct: The Nuggets have their number. Now in a 3-0 hole and staring down the barrel of defeat, the Lakers find themselves searching for something that feels like it doesn’t exist. The Lakers are down and just about out; is a last second miracle the Hail Mary of the year? SUBSCRIBE, Rate and Review on iTunes an…

Let's face it, the Lakers put themselves in a position where winning their series against the Denver Nuggets would be very, very, VERY challenging after they blew a 20-point lead in Denver to fall down 0-2. But to even have a shred of hope, Game 3 had to be a win. It wasn't. The Lakers dropped yet another game to the Nuggets, this time by a 112-105…
  continue reading
 
The biggest headline to emerge from the total collapse of Game 2, where the Lakers allowed a 20-point second half lead to disappear, was after, when Anthony Davis said the Lakers have stretches on both sides of the ball where they don't know what they're doing. This was a very pointed criticism, to say the least. Wednesday, Darvin Ham was asked abo…
  continue reading
 
Monday was a brutal night all around for the Lakers. They blew a 20-point lead in Denver against the Nuggets in Game 2, and while it doesn't end their chances of winning the series it certainly does some very serious damage to their hopes. Psychologically, too, blowing a 20-point second half lead is not an easy thing to recover from. But that's wha…
