Lakers hire Redick as head coach, what’s Lakers legend Johnson’s reaction?

“I see Redick’s appointment as a positive”

The Los Angeles Lakers are one of the NBA’s most prestigious franchises. After a dark period in the 2010s, the franchise rebounded in 2018-2019 with the signing of LeBron James (203 cm, F). They even won a championship in the 2019-2020 season.

In recent years, however, the team has been a bit unstable. Frank Vogel, the coach who won the title in 2019-2020, didn”t last long. After the third season, Vogel left the team.

For the 2022-2023 season, the team hired Davin Hamm. With a wealth of coaching experience and an excellent defensive tactic, there were many expectations. The reality was not so easy. He started his coaching career with a 2-10 record, and the Lakers performed below expectations.

There”s also the turnover point. They rebounded quickly, reorganizing their roster through trades during the season. As a result, they reached the Conference Finals. Although they didn”t win a single game against the Denver Nuggets, they had a successful enough season.

The problem was the second season. They finished the regular season with a record of 47 wins and 35 losses. They made it to the play-in tournament and earned the No. 7 seed. But once again, they met Denver and lost. As a result, the Lakers fired Hamm.

After Hamm’s dismissal, a number of coaches were considered for the job. JJ Reddick was one of the favorites to take over. However, Redick has no coaching 토토 experience. Nevertheless, Redick was the Lakers’ final choice.

The decision still comes with a lot of question marks. However, Lakers legend Magic Johnson had a different opinion. Johnson told ESPN, “I see the appointment as a positive. I’ve seen how he’s played, and he has the ability to overcome tough things. He has a high BQ, he has a passion for the game, he plays tough, mentally and physically, and he has the ability to take the Lakers to great heights.”

“There are successful coaches who were players. Tyronn Lue, Steve Kerr, and other great shooters were also great coaches. (Laughs) I think Redick will be just as successful as they were,” he added.

Meanwhile, none of the Lakers’ recent head coaches have lasted more than three years. Even Frank Vogel, who won a championship, left the team after his third season. It will be interesting to see if Redick can end the Lakers’ coaching atrocities.
