Los Angeles Times columnist Bill Plaschke did not hold back on why the Los Angeles Lakers letting Jared Dudley walk away and sign with the Dallas Mavericks as an assistant coach would hinder LeBron James’ chances at another ring. Plaschke described Dudley as the quote: ‘Last guy on the bench, but the strongest voice in the locker room.
