Why is Lue considered a good coach?

I guess Lue proved he's pretty good at dealing with egos, power trippers and strange guys... He'll probably be the right guy for the Clippers.

Really good question. He's a good superstars coach, I wouldn't hire him to build a culture but manage egos and get them to play hard. Other than that, I have nothing.
Perhaps he is hated because he is a narcissist, pathological liar, incapable of decent human emotions, incapable of running an organization such as a government. He incites racial hatred, doesn't know how to handle a crisis - I'll stop there.

5 year deal, damn. If the Clippers flop this year, I can see Kawhi leaving in the off-season.

OK, that covers Ballmer, but what about the roster flaws?

Why isn't he ? He has won the ultimate prize as a head coach before.

And then what happened when he didn't have Lebron on his team anymore?

I can see Lebron schooling/taunting Lue whenever he plays the Clippers

Lue is soooo overrated. He quit on the Cavs after Lebron left after he was exposed as a bad coach.

Why should kawhi leave his home? That was his destination. Sure Lue is not a excellent coach, but he can manage egos, and have experience with that since his cavs tenure.
