It’s been a really tough year for Los Angeles Clippers head coach Tyronn Lue.
A rough season on the court is one thing, but the Clippers head coach has been dealing with a lot of death off the court. Lue went on The Pivot Podcast, which is hosted by Channing Crowder, Fred Taylor and Ryan Clark, and revealed he has lost seven family members since December.
“Since December, I’ve lost seven family members from Mexico, Missouri but we lost six games in a row. I can’t leave my team behind and I know I should be there for my family but we lost so many in a row. I could take the easy way out and go home for a week but I just felt like I couldn’t do that,” Lue said.
Lue shared that it’s a brutal reality for people in his position, that they have to weigh the needs of the team he’s coaching against tragedy in his personal life.
On the year, the Clippers are 5th in Western Conference with a 40-36 record.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
