Biggest shock was reading a Raptors fan suggest that losing Phil Handy was a bigger deal then losing Kawhi

Well it’s noteworthy that the losses all came from the Warriors. If he lost against different opponents, then maybe it’s worrisome. But he lost to the same opponent who was just flat-out better.

This is an excellent read by Harrison Fa.gen which talks about him working with various stars:

Quote:
This past July, Kawhi left Toronto to sign with the Los Angeles Clippers in free agency. Faced with an uncertain future, the Raptors granted permission to other NBA teams to engage with Phil.

Kyrie wanted his former coach to join him and Kevin Durant with the Brooklyn Nets. And LeBron hinted at an opportunity in LA, with Anthony Davis coming over from the New Orleans Pelicans.

Phil found some clarity the day after the NBA Las Vegas Summer League ended, in the form of a phone call from Frank Vogel, the Lakers’ newly-hired head coach.

“Can you fly here tomorrow morning?” Frank asked.

The next day, Phil was on an 8 a.m. flight from Vegas to LA to meet with the Lakers. After a quick interview, he was back on a plane home where, upon landing, he turned on his phone.

“It rang immediately,” he says. “My agent called me and said the Lakers had made an offer.”

The Lakers wanted to give Phil a seat on the front of the bench as an assistant coach. But before he accepted the Lakers position, he got another call—this time from Clippers head coach Doc Rivers, who made him an offer.

Though Phil found the opportunity to work with Doc and reunite with Kawhi difficult to resist, he ultimately opted to return to the Lakers.
Either way, he has only one thing on his mind this season: winning.

“I've gotten hooked on that,” he says. “That feeling is just one that you want to continue to experience.”


Good read.

Geez Clipps always sucking at the Lakers teet, no original scouting or hiring practices of their own.
