Millionaire Clippers Head Coach Signs With LeBron James’ Agent Despite Refusing To Shake His Hand At A Lakers Game: “Hand Shake? Hell No!”

Published 05/17/2022, 10:30 AM EDT

Tyronn Lue is a top coach. He has been for over six years now. When he started his time as a member of the coaching staff, his approach and his view of the game made him unique. He was the assistant coach for the Boston Celtics from 2011 to 2013. Then he got the assistant head coach job at the Los Angeles Clippers and then at Cleveland Cavaliers. In 2016 he became the head coach of LeBron James’ Cavaliers and won the NBA championships in his first season as head coach.

After he got fired from the coaching position of the Cavaliers, he was appointed as the head coach for the LA Clippers. He has done a decent job with them ever since. He left the Cavaliers in a pretty unconvincing way. Ty Lue tried really hard to keep LeBron there, but that did not happen and as a result, he also could not continue. It ultimately came down to LeBron’s agent, to whom he sort of returned the favor.

During a game between the LA Lakers and the LA Clippers, Ty Lue refused to shake hands with Rich Paul, LeBron’s agent. Paul extended his hand and tried to get some love from Lue but Lue left him hanging and then stared down Paul’s hand. It was unclear if it was friendly banter or part of the beef. The latter seems not to be the case as Ty Lue has decided to join the agency created by Rich Paul.
