On ty lue, frank vogel, old dogs, and new tricks – forum blue and histiocytoma dog gold

If reports hold true, tyronn lue will be the next lakers head coach. He’s the candidate many thought would end up winning the histiocytoma dog removal cost job eventually, dating back to when it was still luke walton’s job to lose in the first place. The path here has been twistier than expected, with monty williams getting serious consideration and nearly playing the histiocytoma dog removal cost role of spoiler only to bow out right before the histiocytoma dog removal cost finish line by hitching himself to the suns. We can debate whether this is to the lakers’ loss or gain, but that’s a discussion for another day.

Lue, then, looks like he’s primed to takeover. The details are reportedly still being worked out, however, so we’d be remiss if we did not point out things histiocytoma dog removal cost could always change. But after a birthday party over the weekend donned a histiocytoma dog removal cost lakers themed cake — whether in jest or not — things are advancing. Both parties seem to want to make it happen and histiocytoma dog removal cost when that’s the case a deal normally gets done. Only thing left is to dot the i’s and cross the t’s (and, I’d imagine, count the zeroes in the final contract number).

Vogel’s indiana teams were led by paul george, roy hibbert, george hill, lance stephenson, and david west; they were a team that clobbered opponents defensively and had histiocytoma dog removal cost enough on offense to to be a pseudo contender. Defense, then, is vogel’s calling card and metrics support his wizardry on that histiocytoma dog removal cost end of the floor. His teams, at least in indy, would grind you down with a combination of length and histiocytoma dog removal cost physicality while, at their peak, forcing misses all over the floor, controlling the defensive glass, and avoiding shooting fouls.

That peak was years ago, however, and like most coaches who experienced success in one place histiocytoma dog removal cost and then struggled in the next, the question is whether that original success was more personnel histiocytoma dog removal cost based, schematic, or a combination of both (and, if both, how much was actually influenced by the coach). There’s also the question of whether vogel’s success, which came during a time before the league’s full-on infatuation with the 3 point shot took hold, can translate to this new era of NBA basketball. And, if it won’t, whether he can recognize that and adjust in kind.

Lue’s qualifications as a coach speak for themselves. He was on doc rivers’ staff that went to the finals in 2010 and later histiocytoma dog removal cost served under rivers as an assistant with the “lob city” clippers. He was the lead assistant/associate head coach on david blatt’s staff that went to the 2015 finals and then, after replacing the fired blatt early into the 2016 season, he coached the cavs to the championship over the 73 histiocytoma dog removal cost win warriors. He then coached two more consecutive finals teams before being histiocytoma dog removal cost fired, like blatt was, early the season this past year after a slow start histiocytoma dog removal cost in the wake of lebron leaving for the lakers.

That’s a long list of accomplishments, but should lue end up the head man for these histiocytoma dog removal cost lakers, it remains to be seen if those past successes are histiocytoma dog removal cost portable. Yes, he’d be joining lebron, but all that shooting that served to optimize james’ specific gifts while punishing defenses from distance for daring to histiocytoma dog removal cost try to contain them are not coming with him. There is no kyle korver or kevin love or kyrie histiocytoma dog removal cost irving. There’s not even a JR smith or a channing frye histiocytoma dog removal cost or a matthew dellavedova.

When you can space the floor like those teams, offensive design need not be complicated. Run various PR actions to create advantage off the dribble histiocytoma dog removal cost or force switches, then use the spaced floor to either get to the histiocytoma dog removal cost rim for a shot or draw enough help to free histiocytoma dog removal cost up a shooter to make the defense pay. Rinse, repeat. Lue, though, would not be coaching that team anymore. He’d be coaching these lakers, in whatever their final form is — but currently devoid of long range snipers.

For lue (and vogel), then, there’s a certain amount of proving required. Past accomplishments deserve praise and the reputations earned from them histiocytoma dog removal cost require respect. But respect is maintained and carried forward by continuing to histiocytoma dog removal cost achieve at the levels you made your name on in histiocytoma dog removal cost the first place. The lakers, more than most organizations, should know this better than most. A wall full of banners can only gussy up six histiocytoma dog removal cost straight lottery seasons and suspect front office work so much. The NBA is a what have you done for me histiocytoma dog removal cost lately? League and while coaches with a pedigree offer a runway histiocytoma dog removal cost to respectability, the plane still needs to be able to fly.

It’s rare in sports that second chances are framed this histiocytoma dog removal cost way, with these types of candidates. Most times, it’s guys who have failed previously who are out to histiocytoma dog removal cost prove they can be a success at all, not guys like lue who have reputations of being difference histiocytoma dog removal cost makers on the sidelines. But as the league changes and people are dropped into histiocytoma dog removal cost new environments, evolving and fitting schemes to rosters and connecting with a histiocytoma dog removal cost new group of guys is a daily proving ground.
