It’s been a rough offseason for the LA Lakers. Not only did Magic Johnson randomly quit on the team but they’re having a tough time hiring a coach and there doesn’t seem to be an end in sight.

In less than a span of the week the Lakers missed out on their top two coaching hires in Monty Williams and Ty Lue.

It has since been revealed that Kurt and Linda Rambis opposed the hiring of Ty Lue are gaining power within the organization.

Apparently, the current front office dysfunction is “embarrassing” players according to Chris B Haynes of Yahoo Sports .

“It’s the Lakers organization as a whole right now. You said it in your opening: It’s a laughingstock right now. Just the way everything was handled… It’s really frustrating for people who are involved with the team, and certainly for some of the players I’ve talked to. They call it an embarrassment. I’m talking about players for the Lakers. They consider an embarrassment what’s going on, and it’s not the ideal situation to be in.”
