There never was that true rivalry and now we start having these storylines elaine's like tyler linked up into two rival was spurned by the lakers is now back with the clippers in a fun talking about tie is taco. Just sidelines really made. I think five six million bucks. He took this job because he takes a step down. You know you know it really limits. Maybe what he can do during the season prepare for next year. I think this is just really tie wanting to be part of the slip organization. I think it's a vote the confidence and the clippers and as you guys know tie is very well respected and well and also he has a close relationship with doc rivers remember. He had this role before he got the cavs job yeah so he went from he went from being issues with thai undocking no like those guys are really close. Doc helped launch him as a coach in this league and he's one of his proteges regimes and so. I think that that's really the draw here but you know the lakers in their salary negotiations.
