New Clippers HC Can’t Remember Own Player’s Name

The Los Angeles Clippers traded for Pistons guard Luke Kennard last month, and the deal was considered a home run. Or perhaps a slam dunk. One would therefore think that Kennard’s name would be worth remembering for the Clippers faithful. Apparently their newly-hired head coach Ty Lue missed that memo. He forgot his name completely.

Ty Lue isn’t a bad coach, but this is pretty sad. Part of his job is to know his own roster. We’ve all drawn a blank thinking of a player or two from our favorite teams, but we’re not the coach. He is.

Lue won an NBA championship in Cleveland in 2016 with LeBron James, Kyrie Irving, and Kevin Love at his disposal. Maybe he knocked it out the park with the Cavaliers because those names were worth remembering?

What makes this epic space-out even funnier is the clueless look on his face. Ty was hired because of his ability to lead the Clippers when they clearly lack leadership, not to look like he has no clue what’s going on.ย 

The basketball world just watched the Lakers ink LeBron James to a long-term extension, while the Clippers traded for a player their own coach can’t remember. It might be time to move Kawhi, Pandemic P, and Coach Lue to Inglewood before they hurt themselves.

  1. You are sitting at a table in a restaurant, having dinner with your family. Everyone is relaxed. After a moment, it intrudes upon your attention that there is a commotion at the front. A woman is shouting at the manger and gesturing wildly. You look up, and for a moment, you lock eyes with the woman. She turns and makes a beeline for you, brushing off the manager’s arm as he tries to restrain her. As she stalks your way, she starts shouting at you that you are not taking care of your children and you ain’t no man.

    You have never seen this woman before in your life.

    The look you have on your face as she steps up to the table and sticks her finger in your face – that is the look Ty Lue always has on his face.
