Sports: Lakers Fire Coach Mike Brown After 5 Games

Lakers Fire Coach Mike Brown

The LA Lakers front office handed coach Mike Brown his walking papers after just 5 games.

The Lakers landed at the bottom of the NBA Western Conference with a dismal 1-4 record after breaking the bank to sign Steve Nash and Dwight Howard.

Lakers superstar Kobe Bryant reportedly expressed frustration with Brown’s coaching strategy in the days leading up to his sacking. Bryant’s angry stare at Brown in the closing seconds of the Lakers’ loss to Utah on Nov. 7 set tongues wagging.

Brown becomes the 3rd Lakers head coach to lose his job due to Kobe’s tantrums.

But Bryant told reporters that he wasn’t looking at anyone in particular and that he was just mad.

From Sports Illustrated:

Brown’s Lakers team added All-Star players in Dwight Howard and Steve Nash over the summer. They, along with Kobe Bryant, were widely predicted to dominate the league, but the team has struggled at both ends of the floor. The last straw for Brown was apparently Wednesday’s 95-86 loss in Salt Lake City, a loss that didn’t sit well with Bryant.

Former Utah Jazz head coach Jerry Sloan has been linked with the position, while former Knicks coach Mike D’Antoni is known to be well respected by both Nash and Bryant. Further, Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports reports in a tweet that D’Antoni has been specifically discussed amongst Lakers management.

      I’ll tell ya what i’d do, i’ll crap my pants first but then welcome my Lord with open arms :yes: :lol:

      Brown just wasn’t the right fit with Lakers mgmt. They should just go with Brian Shaw, take a chance like Dallas did with Avery Johnson :yes:

      broan Shaw is an assistantin Indiana now, that would be at least a three part move unless Indy can do without an assistant. LA may need to take notes from the Indy colts and hire an interim coach in name only and let Kobe basically just coach from the floor. Because if they keep letting him run that front office from the bench nobody’s gonna want the job anyway. Folks already call him Unkoachable Bryant.

      That banana is phallic and offensive. You should be ashamed. Also, I’d prefer the color blue or brown. It will make a nice doorstop.

      @redeemed ok, I do want to purchase the complete bible soon. I checked out the site you told me about. Funny thing I came across that site earlier this year. Those brothers are really on it. I also frequent a few other Hebrew sites that are pretty informative and bring forth truth.
