Is Darvin Ham a Good Candidate for the Lakers Coach? Mark Jackson? Who Else? (Guest: Kevin Arnovitz)

Locked On Lakers - Daily Podcast On The Los Angeles Lakers

On Monday's episode, ESPN's Kevin Arnovitz broke down the bind the Lakers (with LeBron James, Anthony Davis and Russell Westbrook), and other "mercenary" style NBA teams like the Clippers and Nets face when building a roster that tries not only to have talent but cohesion and culture. The second half of the show focuses on their coaching vacancy, which is seemingly thought of by Rob Pelinka and Jeanie Buss as too big for a first-timer like, say, former Lakers/current Bucks assistant Darvin Ham?Well, according to Arnovitz, not so much.He points to Ham as a blindingly obvious candidate for the Lakers to interview (which he actually said before news broke into the weekend that the Lakers will, in fact, talk with him). Are there other assistants out there the Lakers should be paying attention to? What about among the "retreads?"All of this points to big questions about the process we're about to see play out. There are no slam dunk obvious candidates. There are many the Lakers could probably find success with, if that coach is given the right tools, the right roster, and a culture that makes sense. Will that happen? Are the Lakers more concerned about winning the press conference? Keeping control in the basketball ops department by choosing assistants and having Kurt Rambis sit in on coaches meetingWe're about to find out.HOSTS: Andy and Brian Kamenetzky (Guest: Kevin Arnovitz)SEGMENT 1: The narrative is the Lakers aren't a "starter job." It's one belied by their history. Will the Lakers limit themselves, though?SEGMENT 2: All about Darvin Ham!SEGMENT 3: What kind of process will the Lakers take in their coaching search? Who gets on the list and why? More importantly, who doesn't get on the list, and why?Support Us By Supporting Our Sponsors!PrizePicksCheck out PrizePicks.com and use promo code: “NBA” or go to your app store and download the app today.

Can the Lakers Build a Culture That"s More Than Just "Superstars?" Guest: Kevin Arnovitz

Locked On Lakers - Daily Podcast On The Los Angeles Lakers

Heading into this season, the Lakers, with a superteam headed by LeBron James, Anthony Davis and Russell Westbrook, were considered among the favorites to win a championship. But like the equally star-laden Nets and Clippers, now find themselves with questions to ponder after a massively disappointing season. Around the league, is chasing stars at all cost emerging as a faulty approach? Joining today's show is ESPN's Kevin Arnovitz, one of the smartest basketball writers out there, who introduced the idea in a column a couple weeks ago. One major problem he identifies is culture and chemistry, and the challenges sustaining either in situations where stars come from the outside and don't have any proverbial skin in the game. The Lakers certainly had problems with both this season. Do they need to create some sense of culture that reaches past "Superstars!" What are the problems that can come with the "all mercenary" superteam construction? Wh does it matter if players don't have deeper skin in the game, that can come from spending time in an organization during more formative periods? What might be happening on Earth 2, where the Lakers made a point of leveraging the talent of the "Baby Lakers," rather than making it abundantly clear that the only purpose of the young guys was as trade fodder for a star. What is LeBron's future with the team? Why it might benefit the Lakers to build a culture that goes deeper than "superstars... and go!" HOSTS: Andy and Brian Kamenetzky (Guest, Kevin Arnovitz!) SEGMENT 1: Why the Superteam! construction might be in peril. Where they tend to go wrong. SEGMENT 2: What can the Lakers rebuild a culture given all their roster turnover? SEGMENT 3: Do the Lakers use "Win at all costs" as a shield to avoid making harder, and potentially unpopular, decisions they'd have to explain? Support Us By Supporting Our Sponsors!
