The Lakers have been taking their sweet time finding a new coach.
Why have they been stalling you ask? Well, apparently they’re waiting for LeBron James to hit free agency.

Cleveland has a very small window to handle a lot of business. From Kyrie Irving to finding a head coach to deciding who to select at number one.
Before the Cavs workout Wiggins or any other big name prospect, they’d like to have a head coach intact.
Cavs will workout Wiggins closer to draft. Trying to get a new head coach in place before pivotal workouts.

At this point, I’m convinced Donald Sterling likes the attention he’s getting. In his latest publicity stunt, he was found taking a group of very young, very attractive black women out to paparazzi happy Mr. Chow in Beverly Hills.
In the video you can see Sterling arrived with the women, but reports are that he left alone.
I’m just ready for him to go sit down somewhere.

If you’ve ever wondered where soccer players get their ridiculous flopping skills from, it’s from guys like this. Watch as this amateur soccer coach gets into a confrontation with the ref, then acts as if he’s been given the Touch of Death after getting lightly hit in the neck by the official.
That’s an Oscar worthy performance if I’ve ever seen one.
