The Los Angeles Lakers are slowly but surely putting their abysmal 2021-22 NBA season behind them. They are preparing to improve their chances of at least fulfilling the expectations of the fans to have a great playoff run.

In the 2021-22 NBA season, the Lakers played so underwhelmingly that they missed the NBA Play-in tournament along with the postseason. Next season they need to do better and in hopes of doing that, they have made a crucial change in the team's coaching department.

After firing head coach Frank Vogel, many wondered who would fill in his shoes for the Purple & Gold. Well, the Lakers announced that they are hiring Darvin Ham as their new head coach, along with Rasheed Wallace as their assistant head coach.
