    Interesting rumors flying around about this possible marriage.

    It's not a rumor anymore. It's confirmed LAL is preparing a massive offer for Hurley. They already met, and more meetings are scheduled.

    Great coach, but quite the D-bag.

    could set off another set of Calipari-esque dominoes in the college coaching world.

    I hope he goes to Lakers. Tired of UConn.

    Whatever UConn's AD is doing, we need to get some of that. When we played them in 2014, we were the two teams closest to breaking into the blue blood tier. They had three championships, we had two, if we won, we would have been neck and neck with them, but they won, and won two more championships after that. With three different coaches. The coaches change, the championships keep coming in. Super impressed with what they've done. Over the last 25 years they are the best team in college basketball. And no one else has had so much success with so many different coaches.

    That team is beyond what coaching can help. LeBron will be 40 and has AD ever played a full season?

    I thought JJ Reddick to the Lakers was all but a done deal, guess not

    disagree, they were 47-35 with a crap coach, 47 wins is well beyond decent. 3 games behind the Mavs. AD played 76 games last year - so, yes.

    He's Lebron's podcast partner and a smart player...but a bit of a reach.
    Possibly Plan B or C.

    yes on paper he would seem to be but personally I see him as potentially a Steve Kerr type, very high basketball IQ that would at least garner the respect of players. Of course there's no way he'll have the kind of success Kerr has had as a first time coach, but he does have potential

    The Athletic had an article saying the management team was really high on him. I agree, total reach.

    Hurley told his CT players the other day. I think he will take the 10 year deal at $7 or $8 million a year. Has leverage. Get out of the recruiting, portal and NIL madness.

    Kerr has 5 rings as a player and JJ has zero. I would think that Kerr would have a ton more respect from players.
