Luke should be fired during ASB. We could be using that time off to gel with a new coach/staff. Don't see how that would hurt our playoff chances at all, given Lebron and Rondo are basically coaching the team as-is. Just need someone with an ounce of common sense to make proper rotations and lineups based on the matchups and individual performance mid-game. It's not rocket science

If they fired Luke, they’re not hiring a new permanent coach

They’d promote Shaw as interim coach then search for a replacement coach in the offseason

They should just stick with him, you ain't getting anyone better during the season to salvage the season as is.

Not like anyone on his staff is good enough, they're all as bad as he is.
Summer is the best time to go looking for a new head coach.

Luke can get crap for his rotations..but he did not assemble this team of misfits who cant shoot. He cant control injuries..we were 4 seed with everybody healthy. Plenty of blame to go around.

The team had enough talent to be a top 4 seed with Lebron at full health. But because of Luke's lack of offensive system, he ran the team ragged, especially Lebron in order to mask his ineptitude. That has led to Lebron having his worst injury every, Zo, BI, Kuz, Rondo, so many damn injuries. Not to mention his reluctance to hire a shooting coach. His player optimization is piss poor.

How did Kuz sit for 9 straight minutes in this game?

Luke loves cooling off players who are on a hot streak. 😂😂

if you noticed Luke's 2nd quarter coaches breakdown before the half he mentioned that their D was bad after the reporter asked about Kuz's hot start. You could see that he wasn't impressed and figured that the team needs to do other things, like play better D, than let one one player carry them. reading in between the lines, he benched kuzma to teach them a lesson and looks like he cost them the game? it's happened before and luke never learns. he's a horrible coach. cant even ride his hot hand correctly to cover his ass.

If I'm Kuzma, I'm kinda sick of this organization. The FO is trying to trade me, and the coach won't ride my hot hand when I'm on fire.

I was defending him for a long time. But not anymore.

His rotations last night and lack of effort of the team is awful.

He need to go now. FIRE LUKE. I am done with this moron.

They can even promote Jack to be a coach. In this moment everything is better than Luke. Luke is basically not coaching at all.

Kuz's mother said Luke doesn't run enough plays for Kuz. Ingram is constantly creating on the fly. Lebron and Rondo continuously make stuff up on the spot, when Lance is running point he makes stuff up on the spot ... where's the offensive system?

Opposing commentators and coaches continuously say our offense looks like a pick up game at the local gym. It's just frustrating

With Lebron on the floor 123 off rating, 121 def rating
Lebron off the floor 82 off rating, 155 def rating

https://www.reddit.com/r/lakers/comments/apb359/we_lost_the_game_in_the_disastrous_15_mins/

Now this is because Luke dragged Kuz and Ingram off as well, but you can see how well Luke's non-Lebron lineup performed ...

That lineup at the end of the 3rd was a disaster. Got to at least have 1 of LeBron, Ingram or Kuz on the floor at all times.


4 point defecit, Luke reefed them all. 15 point defecit at the end of the quarter. Game done

He's been doing that all season.His rotations and subs are the worst for an NBA coach.I'm not even surprised anymore.I'm more amazed that he is still coaching this team.

Luke’s a better coach than all of LG combined. But at the same time, he’s the dumbest, most stubborn coach I’ve ever seen. He might actually be worst than Byron Scott. The same Byron who kissed Kobe’s ass, benched Lin for Price, refused to play Clarkson during his rookie year, and hated DLO.

I remember one of the first Laker Film Room videos where GT broke down a bunch of Warriors plays. The Lakers just signed Luke and we were eager to see what was in store. They mostly consisted of a motion offense with lots of weak side action, deception plays, and creative ball movement. It’s 2019 and I’m still waiting to see something from Luke.

Luke's gonna have a losing season with Lebron. That's extremely hard to do but it's happening. FYI, Lebron's only losing season was his rookie year. You can blame it on Lebron's injury all you want but I'm quite sure Lebron didn't play every single game in his career prior to coming here. Jeanie loves Luke. What does that make Jeanie? See where the problem with Lakers lies?

Sounds about every Laker over the past 10 years not named Kobe or lebron.

All of you saying fire Luke, do you actually have another coach in mind? Or are y’all content with Brian Shaw handling the reins until the season’s over? I want this clown gone too, but...damn, is there anybody remotely interesting out there?

I really like to see Luke roll out this rotation until Ball gets back

With injury

Starters should be

PG - Rondo
SG - Bullock
SF - Bron
PF - Kuzma
C - McGee

1st back up at each position

PG - Hart
SG - Popes
SF - BI - serves as defacto point forward
PF - Muscala
C - Chandler

Is that really important? In this moment our team looks so bad that new coach can be DJ Mbenga if you ask me. I am not sure if we can play any worse than this. We lost already to Cavs, Knicks, 40 by Indy, 23 by Philly. Is there a worst scenario than this. I highly doubt?

I supported signing him (when we had Byron).

But let's be honest, strip the veneer of "ex Laker" and if he was just another coach off the street, would we want to keep him?

Luke's losing me and yes, he's had injuries, the trade drama, adjusting to LBJ, etc., but he has some mind boggling poor coaching decisions that are just killing the team.
