    He was one of the greatest Dunk-contest robberies ever…still remember the touch-the-backboard from one side while finishing off on the other….so underrated.

    You’ve got to be kidding me. The Lakers will do better letting Kobe be the player/coach. #IJS

    How is this happening?…. While the Lakers are at it, why don’t they hire Isiah Thomas as an executive.

    FYI, Ham and Ray Allen BOTH got jerked in 97… No way Kobe should have gotten past the first round, let alone win.

    Guess this is poetic justice. lol

    Ham is one of the greatest dunkers in NBA History. I am glad the Lakers are giving him a chance to prove himself. I hope he succeeds. BOOK IT!!

    WTF Sherlock, KB8 won 97 but Ham shoulda been in the final round instead of Michael Finley. Ray is no better then Jerry Stack. And Lebron still afraid to show up in dunk Comp. IMO

    How is it that people can judge how a guy will be as a coach based on how he was as a player? As I recall, Phil Jackson and Pat Riley weren’t exactly great players but they became two of the top three greatest coaches in history. How about letting a guy show what he can do before passing judgement? What a novel idea!
