Ty Lue is the favorite to become the next head coach of the Clippers

Ty Lue knows all about the LA Clippers collapse this season and it turns out he's using this knowledge to his advantage.

The Clippers assistant coach, and the ex-Cavs head coach, has been labelled the early favorite to take over for Doc Rivers. His familiarity with the team and his championship background and two things which seem to be working in his favor. 

It is not set in stone quite yet as the Clippers decide who is going to be tasked with bringing the team closer together. If anyone has an advantage, it's likely the assistant coach who witnessed the misery.
