    6Y 70MM, how much of that would he actually get? 36MM?

    Assumming 36MM is somewhat accurate, the contract is for 6MM a year to relocate and live in Lost Angeles. I'd pass of that all day long if I was Hurley.

    Seven coaches in 14 years.

    Coaches aren't the problem.

    The problem is that if you're in a major market like Los Angeles, you (teams like Lakers and Dodgers) are expected to sign star power. (This is why the McCourt years were such an anomaly - he couldn't afford the best). If you sign the biggest names, it takes care of one problem... getting butts in the seats, selling merch, TV contracts, etc. But if you sign the wrong "star", you're sabotaging the teams chances of multiple championships. The Lakers were somehow able to keep it together for the one championship early in Lebron's tenure with the team, but haven't got close since and unlikely to again while he's on the team. Makes one wonder how they would've done with two or three lesser stars instead.

    But then again, I don't follow basketball at all anymore, so this take may be way off.

    I thought so too. That was about the final nail for me.
