Brown to Y! on LAL offense "We're still going to do a lot of stuff we did last year. We're just incorporating some of the Princeton stuff."

I'm gonna pretend that I didn't read that.
^^ I cannot stand Brown. I know Jim Buss was on board with trading for Howard and with using the TPE on Nash and for all of this I'm supremely thankful. But I'll never forgive him for his horrid coaching hires. Rudy T and now this guy. Rudy T at least had won a ring. He needs to delegate coaching hires from now on to Mitch as well.
Basically, my feeling is the same as it ever was - if we win we will do so in spite of Mike Brown at least on the offensive end. Yes, he can coach some D as we saw against OKC last year. For that I'll give him credit. But he is the worst with substations, not understanding his own roster, and just plain offense. And he micromanages the hell out of it, too. It's just no fun to watch.
This is the kind of talk that concerns me, realdeal. Will he really NOT be in charge of anything offensively? He shouldn't be, but do you really think he'll relinquish the reigns? Not from the way he's talking. I won't believe til I see it.
Personally, I don't want us to fixate too much on any system or any playbook stuff. Offense really doesn't need to be complicated. Let these guys play. We have all the right pieces for these guys to run their own thing out there: Nash at the helm, Pau the best passing big man in the league, Kobe the killer, and Howard to post or pick and roll. Add Ron Ron in as the wild card. They can handle this. I swear that between Nash, Kobe, Pau and even Howard they know more about offense than Eddie Jordan or Mike Brown. Let Nash do his freaking job and lay off Potato Head!!
