Bye bye Brown

Postby geodbear » Fri Nov 09, 2012 7:20 pm

Not a huge surprise, maybe that it happened so soon. Mike Brown is fired.

Lakers GM Mitch Kupchak had pushed ownership to give Mike Brown more time before firing him, sources tell Y! Sports.

Not too surprising. Any indication of who the replacement will be? I could see P-Jax being coaxed into another run based on the talent on this roster.

Mike D'Antoni's name is being mentioned quite a bit on Twitter as a possible replacement. That would be very interesting. :-D

Man they didn't even give us time to put up the coaching hot seat thread this year. :-b I'm not gonna cry any tears for Brown, but I do find myself wondering what he could have done differently. Unless the next coach employs a zone defense, I don't see how they get better.

I'd say Brian Shaw but curious if the Buss family would be willing to go there after the Phil Jackson fallout.

What about Jerry Sloan? I think Sloan and D12 would get along famously. :-D
