The Lakers Have Become the Chernobyl of the NBA

Listen to Doug Gottlieb explain why Doc Rivers publicly stating that he’s staying with the Clippers and passing on the de facto vacant head coaching job for the Los Angeles Lakers tells you all you need to know about how much the once proud franchise has fallen.

The Clippers are widely regarded as one of the worst franchises in the history of North American sports… Conversely, the Lakers are one of the most recognizable sports brands on the face of the earth whose best player just so happens to be one of the greatest athletes who ever lived… Yet you’ve got one of the most notable names in coaching saying ‘thanks’ but no thanks’ to the aspects of being the frontman of the league’s most glamorous logo. See a problem yet?

Check out the audio below as Doug says the Lakers have become the most toxic landing spot in the league and compared them to Chernobyl, the Ukrainian nuclear power plant that hosted one of the most infamous and catastrophic accidents of all time in 1986.
