Found a great excerpt off silver screen and roll. MB is making it hard for even the 'wait and see' fans like me..

http://www.silverscreenandroll.com/2012/11/8/3616710/lakers-come-for-jazz-brown-gives-us-the-blues
I hate to bash Mike Brown as he is the coach of our team, and the Lakers organization has just reaffirmed their faith in the man, but seriously what was he thinking? At the end of the first quarter he trotted out a line-up of Darius Morris, Devin Ebanks, Antawn Jamison, Jordan Hill, and Pau Gasol. A passive Pau Gasol paired with no great floor-spacing shooter or shot-creating playmaker, what could go wrong? That line-up closed out the final two and half minutes and produce not a single point. Zero. Zilch. Nada. Goose Egg.

Surely Mike Brown would have recognized the flaws in that line-up, right? Not quite. He started the next quarter with a similar line-up, but with Metta World Peace now manning the shooting guard position and Howard anchoring the middle. It shouldn't come as a surprise that this line-up played a couple minutes and was outscored 10-4. Playing these two line-ups to end the first quarter and start the second quarter caused the Jazz' four-point lead to balloon to fourteen points. The Lakers would never recover from that run.

The famous saying is, "Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me." But what happens if you are fooled three times? Mike Brown was twice hurt by these four non-shooters plus one all-star big man line-ups. Certainly the man wouldn't do it again in the same game would he? Well, yes he did. Brown sent the same line-up that started the 2nd quarter back out on the court to start the 4th. The Jazz extended their lead another three points during that span. For those of you who are counting, those line-ups were a combined -13 while the other line-ups were a +4.

One of the reasons those line-ups failed so miserably is because there was no spacing due to a lack of shooters on the floor. This is where Mike Brown's other most puzzling move came in: Jodie Meeks, DNP - Coaches Decision. Meeks is the only true back-up shooting guard on the roster, has a solid three-point stroke, and has shown some defensive chops. Mike Brown never let him leave the bench and instead chose to play MWP as the back-up shooting guard. If anyone has any idea for why he would choose this, please let me know because no matter how I look at it, I can't find any justifiable reason for such a decision.

idiot. we need a bench. Meeks can shoot the 3 annd thus open things up for Dwight/Pau whoever is in with him and also he can get to the line with his 90%FT its easy points.

Mike needs to manage the rotations way better bc no coach would ever play the lineups he has played. players need consistency and that involved playing Meeks with Dwight and running plays for Jamison. And for god's sake run the PnR! i dont care if youre trying to implement the Princeton...i obviously doesnt work bc even Mike scraps it when were down and goes to traditional feed the bigs basketball....why not use PnR??!!

I think he cares ... deep in his heart he hopes we lose every game. The faster more losses come the faster Mike Brown will be fired :man11:

The Princeton actually keys off of delivering the ball to the post. That's one of the main sets.

complete waste of amazing talent. good teams have a bench or at least one or two guys who can come in, feed of eachother, and potentially turn a game around. Jamison and Meeks are that for us as well as Jordan Hill who had 12 rebounds yesterday!

Minutes for Meeks and sets run for Jamison is what we need. Duhon (although against 2nd/3rd stringers) set up Jamison multiple times...thats what Jamison needs, not just handing the ball off EVERY time. Meeks got good looks too from drive and kick, not having DNP's

The last sentence sums up our thoughts on this whole thing perfectly. There is literally no justifications for these lineups Brown has come up with, and I seriously don't understand how he doesn't see it. I really dont.

Mind numbing.

Everyone and their moms predicted a total failure for the lineup before the game started. And guess what happened.

This dude....how the hell is he an NBA coach? Boggles my mind. Even a stinking High School coach can figure out that you don't play a stud post player with 4 non shooters.

Heck, I have zero coaching experience probably couldn't get a job volunteering to coach special olympic basketball.....even I figured it out. Sheez! :bang: :bang: :bang:

Basically Turd Face is trying to over think everything in an attempt to be clever or original, when we would be so much better if he stopped trying idiotic rotations just for the hell of it. It's like he's just putting names in a hat and deciding his rotations that way, in a hope that eventually the right combination will arise.

People that call him smart or knowledgeable...I dunno you would have to have quite low standards for intelligence

Meeks and Duhon i think should get minutes. From what ive seen Duhon has worked well with Meeks and found him many times. Also with Jamison.

Duhon
Meeks
Jamison
Hill
Dwight

would be something Mike Brown could put out there. Obviously Jamison at the 3 isnt ideal but i dont think Mike will change that. Duhon has played with Dwight & has worked well with Meeks and Jamison...while Hill just does his thing no matter whos playing with him

I feel sorry for Jodie too. I'm really excited when the Lakers signed him but now I'm sad to see Potato head made him Goudelock 2.0. :bang: :mad1: :disagree:
“Look, we don’t get five championships by being sympathetic towards each other and kissing each other’s a– during the game,” Bryant said Wednesday when asked about the Lakers’ upcoming game against the Thunder next week. “I’m going to demolish him. He understands that. If he switches off on me in the post, there’s going to be problems. I’m sure he’ll put an elbow right in my back, and that’s why we love each other.”

Now hopefully he'll get some playing time. We desperately need floor spacers when Dwight/Gasol is manning the 5 so that the defense doesn't collapse.
