Despite finishing the season well out of the playoff picture, the talk around the NBA the last couple of days has been about the Los Angeles Lakers. Their dumpster fire is burning so out of control that it just can’t be ignored.
On Wednesday, contract talks between the franchise and former Cavs head coach Ty Lue came to an end with both sides going in different directions.
The reason the talks ended is reportedly because Kurt and Linda Rambis opposed the hire.
Source: The Buss family & Rob Pelinka signed off on hiring Ty Lue last week. Kurt & Linda Rambis were the only parties opposed, and convinced the Lakers to hold off, which lead to today.

The couple was hired on by Lakers to join the front office after Magic Johnson’s resignation. The Rambis’ apparently have a lot of power.
We wonder if LeBron is missing Cleveland yet? Sure they had their own set of problems, but one of them wasn’t refusing to bend to his will. He almost always got what he wanted with the Cavs.
