    That's fine and your opinion as I have mine, to avoid repeating further, check my response to futurecoach above. I've already given the L. Ball clown too much mention

    I see a father that loves his kids, and is extremely passionate about helping them be successful. Is he a over the top? Sure he is, but the world would be a MUCH better place if more kids had a father like him.

    I’m sorry, but I continually hear how he “loves his kids” as if that elevates him to a different class of father. Millions of dads love their children. I assume he loves his kids, but I also know he finds it acceptable to quit when the going gets tough and be misogynistic. That’s not opinion, that’s fact. If that makes the world a better place then don’t sign me up for his school of fathering.

    Is he a bit of a tool? Sure he is. Would I want to deal with coaching his kids? Nope. Just stating that this country is littered with fatherless children that would benefit from having a father like him.

    I think his treatment of women might make him worthy of the term loser. That's not how a man should act.

    This guy is an absolute joke. The Lakers should go ahead and cut ties now.

    I can give you that, but that isn't the reason people here are attempting to throw him under the bus.

    Probably the part where he's going to end up costing his most successful son his job.

    The Lakers should for real trade him tho. You can't have this happening when you are trying to get big free agents.

    I assumed they'd be trying to move him when they picked up IT.
