Oram: Lakers trading D'Angelo Russell is fitting end to a flawed tenure

Two years ago when the Lakers held the No. 2 pick in the NBA draft, forgoing the predictable and safe pick of Duke forward Jahlil Okafor felt bold and daring in a way the Lakers, to that point, had not been.

Lue: It’s great to see Kerr back on the bench

Cleveland coach Tyronn Lue suddenly finds himself with a new, familiar counterpart. Steve Kerr’s return doesn’t really change much for Lue, who still offered a gracious reaction to Sunday’s news that Kerr, not Mike Brown, will coach the Warriors in Game 2 of the NBA Finals.
