    L.A. Lakers fire coach Mike Brown

    After the Lakers slow start (1-4) and panicking fanbase the Lakers have decided to fire coach Mike Brown.

    Read the article below for more info.

    -http://espn.go.com/los-angeles/nba/s...wn-source-says

    After Kobe gave him that death stare from the loss to Utah I wasn't surprised that he didn't last long after that.



    Do you think it was fair or unfair? And which coach do you think the Lakers should hire?

    From last year too? Yes perfecly fair.

    He's not a good coach at all. The preseason was shit too.

    That's a championship lineup, with a mediocre coach.

    Well, it takes time for chemistry to grow so i would atleast gave him 30-45 games. Also preseason doesn't matter.

    EDIT: shit double posted

    Around 10 games isn't going to build chemistry to the point where it needs to be around playoff time. That's the regular season.

    Yes, problem?

    Im not saying that its going to be built in preseason, but thats where it starts. Extra games to get back in rhythm and build chemistry.

    Heat fan before 2011?

    Re: L.A. Lakers fire coach Mike Brown

    I think it's perfectly fair, brown isn't a good head coach, and chemistry or not, with the 3rd and 4th best players in the MBA on the court 1-4 is unacceptable, it's a big city with a huge history, accepting the job means he knows with failure he'll get fired.

    P.s. if some things look weird I typed this on my phone

    To quick IMO, they could've at least gave him 30 games to see what happens. Team might get Phil Jackson back

    You need to be more clear, what trades/free agency specifically did LeBron accepted or rejected since you say he was like a owner?

    And no, he wasn't like a owner, if he was, when the Cavs had a opportunity to get Amare via trade (which LeBron had no problem with) with the Suns, it would of probably been a successful trade. But the actual owner/management didn't want to include J.J. Hickson in the deal which is a decision I know they probably regret. LeBron along with any other superstar/player and even logical fans would of made that move, but the retarded Cavs management didn't.

    On Topic: Watching ESPN and they are saying Phil Jackson and Mike D'Antoni are leading candidates for the head coaching position.

    It's true that playing for an organization like the Lakers comes with higher standards, but he should of gotten more time then 5 games of 82. I agree he is not the best of coaches but their lack of chemistry was expected (from people who actually know basketball) due to the fact that they have 2 new starters who are essential for their success, and one of those players is currently injured (Nash). Also they have gotten some new players for their bench so you add that to the equation 5 games in is a little too soon to fire him imo.

    I agree. Phil will be a huge pickup, although I thought they should of gave Brian Shaw the position when Phil retired.

    You are confusing benefits from actually being a owner. You have yet to answer my question of which trades/free agency did LeBron specifically accept or reject? And like I said he did receive benefits along with many other players, he probably has gotten more than many other players since he is a superstar but one of owner/management main purposes is improving their team via trade/free agency/draft. In no way shape or form has LeBron been the guy that accepts/rejects players because he does not have the power too. The owner/management does, not players. So again stop getting confused with the two.

    on all of them. its like with kobe they would ask do you like this trade and they say no then that trade wouldnt happen. they used to tell lebron every move they were going to make and if lebron disegreed then they wouldnt make the move

    No.
    PUU brings out a very valid argument with the JJ hickson and amare trade. This did not push thru because the basketball operations officer of the cavs really thought that hickson was a keeper, which right about now they are hugely regretting.

    the cavs did what lebron wanted
    The cavs essentially drafted lebron in 2003 and did nothing to help him. I can only name 3 players Lebron has played with that was actually worth remembering, Anderson Varejão, Shaquille O'Neal (because he is a future hall of famer), and Mo Williams (because he was actually pretty good). The point is that these were honestly fringe players who Cleveland organization expected Lebron to win with, which he did not.
