Mike Brown Fired as Los Angeles Lakers Head Coach

I know, Mike, I have the same reaction

well, today, after the lakers started out 1-4, only beating the detroit pistons this season, fired their head coach mike brown.  they’ve only won one game out of 14, if you count the preseason also.  i thought it was kinda quick, and i have a feeling many others feel the same way.  they only had steve nash healthy for one game, and they were still learning how to work together.  they were inserting a new offense, the princeton offense, which required many adjustments, in terms of how their team played.  here’s my take on it.

i think that the lakers pulled the plug too early on mike brown.  he is a really good coach, one of the best in the league.  he only took lebron and the cavs to the finals when their next best player was larry hughes.  that’s saying alot.  he i don’t think he had a chance to really make adjustments so that the lakers could succeed.  he came in last year, and personnel was all messed up with pau gasol sad that the lakers didn’t want him, lamar odom all the of sudden getting traded for nothing, and everything out of whack.  so last season was the first season he coached the lakers, and he led them to the semifinals, where they got swept by the thunder.  he wanted to  implement the princeton offense, which involves alot of ball movement.  some people say it’s for players who aren’t really that great, so the ball movement makes up for the skills that the players have.  this was before they got steve nash and dwight, but mike brown wanted to try this even after they got those players.  nash in particular isn’t used to that style of play, and he was trying to adjust.  i think that mike brown
