What did LeBron James say about Dan Hurley? Lakers star speaks highly of ‘super creative’ UConn coach

On Thursday, a new name emerged in the newswire after weeks of rumours that former NBA star JJ Redick would fill Los Angeles' position. 

Hurley is one of the most respected basketball coaches after leading the Huskies to two national titles in 2023 and 2024. LeBron James noticed him following UConn's title run due to his X's and O's skills and his competitiveness. 

It's funny that James's only public compliment to Hurley was in response to the championship coach's appearance on... Redick's "Old Man and the Three" show. 

Higley was on Redick's "Old Man and the Three" podcast two weeks after the Huskies won the 2024 national title.
