Is Ty Lue the best coach to lead LeBron James and the Lakers into the 2019-20 season and beyond? Can the Lakers pair Lue with LeBron (and some new players) to form the “Cavs-West” and take down the Warriors? What about Juwan Howard? He was LeBron’s teammate and assistant coach in Miami, and a college teammate of Rob Pelinka. Other possible Lakers head coaching candidates are former NBA coaches Jason Kidd and Mark Jackson - neither who have had the levels of success as a head coach that Lakers fans will expect them to achieve in LA should they be the man who gets the job.
