As the LA Lakers announce their new starting lineup for LeBron James’ NBA comeback, fans claim that Darvin Ham, who had been bullied, “finally got the memo.”
Darvin Ham, the head coach of the Los Angeles Lakers, was jokingly “bullied” by the team’s supporters into altering the starting lineup for LA’s matchup with the New Orleans Pelicans.
Ham fielded a team with significantly more size than usual with LeBron James back after a three-game absence, and the crowd laughed that Ham “finally got the memo.”
Even after the Lakers reorganized their shoddy roster before the trade deadline, they continued to start games with Dennis Schroder and D’Angelo Russell as their starting point guards.
Malik Beasley, a 6’4″ wing, and Jarred Vanderbilt, a 6’8″ forward acquired through a trade with the Utah Jazz, were only playing off the bench.
But for the start of the Pelicans game on Wednesday, Ham used both Beasley and Vanderbilt.
And Lakers supporters rejoiced that the rookie head coach finally made adjustments to the starting lineup, while simultaneously taking credit for his abrupt shift in thinking.
“Y’all done bullied Darvin Ham into putting out a decent starting lineup,” one person tweeted.
Someone else commented: “Almost like lineups matter! Finally, Darvin Ham got the message! lovely quarter. The ball movement, spacing, and fluidity were all excellent.
“Ham cooked with this lineup, and it’s about damn time,” a third person added.
