If he has yet to prove himself as a Lakers coach, Darvin Ham has left some big memories as a player. His highlights on the field have resurfaced recently, and it didn’t take long for Californian fans to react ecstatically.
Far from recruiting a big name to replace Frank Vogel in coaching, the Lakers opted for a more modest solution in the person of Darvin Ham. However, this does not detract from the resume of the person concerned, who has solid experience on the bench since he has been an assistant coach since 2008, including in LA just after the time of Phil Jackson. On top of that, he was part of the 2020-21 titled staff, with the Bucks of Giannis Antetokounmpo.
Proof that he knows exactly how to win at the highest level, this was his second ring since he had already acquired one in 2004, as a Pistons player. By the way, we were talking about an athlete whose playing time was limited (12 minutes on average in his career), but who knew how to mark the spirits in no time. Indeed, he was able to crush anyone by climbing the dunk as much as he could repel his opponents with big blows:
Darvin Ham’s highlights ignite the fans

Super-athletic to the point of completely destroying a basket (!), The guy was able to do the show and therefore sticks perfectly to the mentality of the City of Angels. Of course, this does not mean that he will be able to make his squad a Rolls-Royce on the pitch, but we can believe in a different level of offensive play that is better than that shown in 2021-22. On the side of the fans, we were in any case left in shock in the face of such violence:
This our coach ??? DAMNNNN !!!! https://t.co/3cSa85PNmn

Darvin Ham really knew how to play!
Darvin Ham knew how to make the net tremble and ignite the fans, when he was still active on the floor. Can we believe in a similar show in 2022-23, this time as a coach? The Lakers fans want to hope so.
