The Los Angeles Lakers are facing tough questions as they head into the offseason. With uncertainties surrounding coaching, player contracts, and free agency, change seems inevitable in L.A. 

Many eyes are on the coaching staff, especially Darvin Ham, who faced heavy criticism during the postseason for his game management and strategies against the Denver Nuggets.

Speaking to the media after the Lakers' season finale, Ham addressed the criticism he's received, shifting some of the blame onto the players.

"It’s amazing how people just skip that core part of having consistency with your lineup is all predicated on health and performance. 

If you’re coaching a team and one of your starters is like 10 games in a row, just s—ting the bed, what are you going to do?" he said, as reported by Lakers Nation.

Ham believes he shouldn't shoulder all the blame, highlighting the pressure of his position. He had to navigate through inconsistent performances from players like D'Angelo Russell and Austin Reaves, along with injuries to key role players such as Rui Hachimura and Jared Vanderbilt

As the Lakers contemplate their future, the spotlight remains on both coaching decisions and player accountability.
