Apologies if this was posted elsewhere. I thought it deserved it's own thread.

Here is a link you do not need itunes to listen to:

First of all listening to Mitch talk, for me, is like listening to somebody break really bad news to someone. Though he is a stand-up guy in many ways, I've no idea how he could ever be expected to close a free agent.

Some highlights (mostly Laker stuff here only):

  • Plans to work in basketball still will check other teams for positions.
  • Feels Jim's self-declared "timetable" to return the team to prominence was both incorrect in span and probably doomed the both of them.
  • Said he and Jim felt it was clear PJ did not want to coach anymore and that if they could talk him into it, it would've been a 1 year job so they moved on.
  • Sticks up for D'Antonio and his hire. Says he's one of the best coaches and that today's game is because of him....

According to Tracy Murray's Instagram, he announced that Frank Hamblen has passed away.

Thank you Frank for being apart of the Lakers family and helping them win those 5 NBA Championships. R.I.P., Coach.
