The Los Angeles Lakers Fire Darvin Ham

Los Angeles Lakers have decided to fire their head coach, Darvin Ham.

Although the Lakers improved their win total from the previous year, it was clear by the end of the regular season that they were going to need a coaching change. As for Darvin Ham’s time as the Lakers head coach, it was one that was underwhelming. After having to deal with the Russel Westbrook situation, he helped them find through the West to get to the Western Conference Finals ultimately to get bounced by the Nuggets. The Lakers made a lot of solid acquisitions in the offseason that was supposed to make them title favorites, but fell short of that as they were taken out by the Nuggets again. He will more than likely be a head coach again in the league soon.
