Darvin Ham is officially the NBA season’s first meme after trying to send the Lakers a simple message on his clipboard

Look, man. It’s bad for the Lakers right now. Pretty bad. But not all bad.

They’re 0-2 after a loss to the Clippers on Thursday night. On top of that, their defense is up and down and nobody can seem to shoot. . Russell Westbrook is also blaming his injuries on a potential bench role.

But they’ve got a good coach in Darvin Ham who their players seem to be playing hard for. And Ham is genuinely trying his hardest to fix what has turned out to be the saddest story in the NBA so far.

And, obviously, we’ve got a long way to go. But Ham is clearly trying his hardest. He put that clipboard to good use on Thursday night.

He had to remind his team to play defense without fouling. Obviously, a core principle of good basketball. Ham was on it.

Unfortunately for him (but perfect for us), this stellar effort from the coach just turned him into this season’s first NBA meme. Everybody is photoshopping just about everything on that clipboard now.

Gotta love the internet, man.

Ham’s got the goods. But this is hilarious. Hopefully, the Lakers get the message.
