  1. Ty Lue didn’t want to get sent to the hospital again trying to coach LeToxic, it’s smart that he wanted to take care of his health.

  6. Who else is going to offer Lue a HC job ?! – ESPN narrative is getting dumber by the day, Vogel got it right, getting a 15m deposit into your bank for the next 3 years and worried about what comes after, TY can make his 500k annually by competing with retread like Tibb and Stan V for ESPN TV time and scrap out a living, any sane human being would see Vogel made the much better decision here…ppl need to remember with LBJ and Kyrie, Lue was just a guy who never coached, and his only qualification was he get along with LBJ, why ppl confuse him with the upper echelon of coach like Pop, Bud, Stevens, Kerr, Carlile, I would never know, there is NO nba HC I will automatically replace Lue with today and say I feel certain I got better

  9. Lue is overrate, dumbass road the coattail of lebron. He hasn't proven anything. No one wants him, lakers only looked at him him cause everyone thinks lebron loves him. Cleveland fired him after lebron left…clearly if he was a good coach the Cavs would have kept him to coach a bum team and save 10 million.

  10. Think about it…the Cavs have a bum team when lebron left and they rather throw away $10 million and fire Lue than to keep him. That is how much a bum he is, a bum team thinks he's a bum. Lue's a bum bum.

  16. Ty Lue's health declined with LeBron and Cavs. He's not stupid to go through that again. Ty Lue was able to turn a squash into a pine tree with LBJ, Kyrie, and Cavs on that run and make history. Talk about "against all odds." There isn't anything for Tyronn Lue to prove.

    Reply
  17. If he was confident in his abilities he would of took that deal and proved he could get an extension

  18. Houston rockets should hire Tye Lue so Lebron James can look that way. James Harden could use Lebron James To help him get 2 rings before it's to late. James and James. Lue know how to beat Golden State and Lebron know how to beat Golden State. Trade Chris Paul and give a draft pick to Get King James. First get Lue that will make sure he came that way and stay for the rest of his career.
