According to NBA reporter Nichols, the new Los Angeles Clippers coach Tyronn Lu talked about giving up last year
Last summer, the Lakers selected coaches and interviewed many coaches. At the last moment, the Lakers management means Tyronn Lue. Lu once coached LeBron for the Cleveland Cavaliers and led the team to a championship. However, Lu and the Lakers management failed to negotiate the details of the contract. Lu was dissatisfied with the three-year contract that the Lakers offered him, nor was he satisfied with the Lakers' arrangements for the teaching assistant team, and eventually gave up the Lakers handsome position.
The Lakers management instead chose to hire Vogel as the team's new head coach, and Lue joined the Los Angeles Clippers as the assistant coach of mentor Rivers. This season, the Lakers successfully won the championship under Vogel's coaching, while the Clippers stopped in the Western Conference semifinals. After Rivers took the blame and ended get out of class, Lu became the Clippers coach and signed a five-year long contract.
相反，湖人队的管理层选择聘请沃格尔（Vogel）作为球队的新任主教练，而卢（Lue）加入了洛杉矶快船队（Los Angeles Clippers），担任导师里弗斯（Rivers）的助理教练。本赛季，湖人队在沃格尔（Vogel）的指导下成功赢得了冠军，而快船队在西部半决赛中止步。里弗斯（Rivers）怪罪并结束了退学后，卢成为快船队的教练并签署了一份为期五年的合同。
Speaking of rejecting the Lakers, Lu said: "I don't regret it, this is part of the business. Of course I am happy for LeBron, he is my person. But I don't feel sorry, I think I did the best. The decision. I am very satisfied with my decision, so I don’t regret it. Everything I have done in my life has a reason. This situation is the best for me now."
Lu and LeBron have had three seasons of cooperation with the Cavaliers, and together they led the team to the Finals every season. In the 2016 finals, Lu led the Cavaliers to stage a shocking reversal after 1-3 behind, winning the first championship in team history. Lu is very good at using superstars, and his use of LeBron is also to the extreme. However, after LeBron left the Cavaliers, Lu's coaching team had a losing streak, so get out of class was soon dismissed.
