2012-13 Coach's Hotseat

Postby RedHopeful » Fri Nov 09, 2012 7:22 pm

Lol. Should have probably put up this thread earlier but I thought the Lakers were going to give Mike Brown a little more time than just 5 games. 8-o

Los Angeles Lakers coach Mike Brown has been fired after a 1-4 start to the season, a source tells ESPNLosAngeles.com's Ramona Shelburne.

It is not known yet who will take over for him, but a source indicated that one of assistant coaches Bernie Bickerstaff or Chuck Person will take over on an interim basis.

Earlier Friday, sources had told ESPN.com's Marc Stein that the team was using its upcoming six-game homestand to evaluate Brown, but after numerous discussion over the past 48 hours, Lakers management came to a unanimous decision that the team wasn't heading in the right direction.

The Lakers have had a healthy Steve Nash in the lineup for only 1½ of their five games so far thanks to a leg injury, while fellow newcomer Dwight Howard has acknowledged that he's still recovering from the back surgery that brought a premature end to his 2011-12 campaign and knocked him out of the London Olympics. Kobe Bryant has also been playing through a foot ailment.
The Lakers are off to the worst start in the Western Conference despite carrying the league's largest payroll at just over $100 million, which would trigger an estimated luxury-tax bill at season's end of nearly $30 million.

The team has also been trying to institute a form of the Princeton offense, a system that relies on reads and ball sharing in order to take some offensive load off Bryant. The results have been mixed so far.

Maybe...but if you look at that Detroit roster, though talented, has issues. I know coaches take the downfall but Joe Dumars has done a pretty terrible job with his personnel moves (other than Monroe)...

With Detroit, they honestly look like the worst team to me and they arguably have more talent than the worst teams. I'd argue for VDN too but the Clippers are straight mashin folks right now.
