Welp, that didn't take long.
The Lakers have fired Mike Brown, according to a source.
Time and change will surely (truly) show
How firm thy friendship ... OHIO!
Figured it was inevitable, but five games in? Damn.
Yeah but he was 1-4. Terrible starts make people panic. Especially with that much talent.
Finally, this guy never had any business being coach of the Lakers. Just a bad coach.
Won't happen, but wish Phil would come back for two years.
I don't think it would happen, but I have a thought they called him behind the scenes.
Management had said that with this homestand they would evaluate Mike Brown and that for now he was safe. That means they would give him 4 more games. What changed that accelerated the firing? I have to imagine that they have a coach in waiting already and the first one that comes to mind is Phil Jackson.

Damn I was hoping that the lakers would keep him on the rest of year, so I could see them continue to struggle
damn I was hoping he'd make it the whole season. He's a terrible coach
CELEBRATE GOOD TIMES, COME ON!!!!

Also this didn't surprise me. The defense has been just non-existant and the Princeton offense felt weird; in the two games Steve Nash played he should not have been relegated to an off ball guard, it was stupid to take the ball out of the hands of someone so adept at seeing the floor and passing.
Thank you. Who the hell is going to be the coach now?
I know right. I am a huge Lakers fan, but haven't watched a single game since opening night. They have way too much talent to look like ish. Too difficult for me to watch.
If Phil comes back, which every fan hopes, they will have a strong run for the rest of the season.
Yes, the offense obviously goes through Kobe. However, Nash should be the one driving, dishing, and making the decisions. Hell the offense was going through Gasol. Most idiotic offense I've ever watched on any level.
Why would Phil come back? He is enjoying the retired life, and plus he is already 67
Lakers need their players to play defense, and their offense to not be a piece of crap, not to fire Mike Brown
Come back for Kobe's last two years and they retire together. Don't expect it, but would love it to happen.
Give me D'Antoni
He is supposedly a defensive coach and he brought in a coordinator specifically to run the Princeton offense. So both those problems fall on him. I know the players have to play, but if he is taking them and putting them in bad setups then that is his fault.
Also, look at Dallas. They had tons of turnover in the offseason yet Carlisle had them in tune with the system when they came to LA in the first game and kicked our asses. Mike Brown got the same training camp time and preseason as everyone else. Why were we not ready?
I'm just thankful they didn't pick Byron Scott the Cavs head coach when they had the chance.
Amen. Happy to have him in Cleveland.
That would be worse than Mike Brown.
Sorry that week ban I had for no apparent reason has me pent up!
Never say never...Phil is ing around the franchise
What about Larry Brown?
