Yea looking back, I wish we had Shaw. Maybe not over Adelman but definitely over Brown.

If Byron Scott had waited one more year, he would have gotten his dream job and would have been perfect for this team.

Why the Byron Scott love? That man lost not one, but two teams. The Nets turned on him and so did the Hornets. If it's once, you think, OK that happens, but it happens again with a totally different team WITH Chris Paul on it, something is wrong there and it ain't the team. I don't think Scott has learned the lessons he needed to learn from those two experiences, but we'll see how his Cleveland tenure goes. I definitely don't want him on the Lakers until he shows that he has learned how not to lose teams.

About Adelman, everybody who mattered wanted him. Even Kobe wanted him if Shaw didn't get the nod. Then Potato Head snowed Baseball Cap Boy. and the rest is history. Well just remember it was mentioned somewhere that the 2000 Laker team went 0-4 to start the exhibition games in Phil's 2nd year and that team went on to win the title. So I won't get alarmed yet.
I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I--
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

^ Do we really need to keep calling Jim Buss "baseball cap boy"? The man was a key player in building what has the potential to be the best starting five in basketball maybe ever. He's also committed to spending more than 125 million dollars in taxes and penalties alone over the next two years.

He's shown his true colors and they're purple and gold.

I'd give you that, but his coach selection has a lot to be desired. I don't see Mike Brown as an NBA level head coach.

He's NBA level. Just not championship level.

I think he's a nice assistant to have on a championship coaching staff.

Yeah, well Mitch gave Luke Walton 6 years at full MLE. Everyone makes mistakes, and I think Jim Buss realized his. He filled out Brown's bench with more than suitable assistants/replacements.

Jim Buss is doing an incredible job so far. One mistake should not reflect his entire record.

Not only will Dwight Howard likely play Sunday but Mike Brown will try to play the Lakers' starters their regular minutes.

I don't have a problem with Mike Brown testing his lineups especially in the preseason. The way I see it is yeah you could just play the same old lineups that may be just "ok" or even pretty good, but if you keep testing them eventually you will find one that works great and you only ever need to find that once. Once you got it you're good. Think about going to a barber. You could keep going to the same decent one or you could keep trying new ones and eventually you'll find one that you really like and you're golden.

So, when Metta predicted we'll win one game in the preseason... he was serious. Good to know. :man9:

I think it's good MB will start playing their regular minutes--HOWEVER, I hate that he plays them ENTIRE quarters. He thinks, "Well, if the starters are down 8, I have to keep them in the game because that lineup is the best opportunity we have to get our lead back."

That's just not smart coaching at all, especially with a much older roster than everybody else.

If something is not working, FIX IT! You need to sub in a bench player or two to add energy to the mix, then when the starters get enough rest, they can come back in and play at their peak again.

That's just basic fundamentals. Not sure what MB thinks he can accomplish by running our older starters to the ground. :bang:

I have never seen at the end of the game...all of the players are surrounding the assistant coach drawing up a play...and Mike Brown is also a spectator. Then the assistant coach, Eddie Jordan, finishes the x's and o's...then Mike Brown steps in...with his fist into the huddle...and hoo-rah! Breaks the huddle. :man10:

Must be nice to collect a huge paycheck as head coach, and let the assistant coaches do most of the work.

Mike Brown is a great person, but not a great coach...he doesn't seem like a coach that fits a winning 1st class organization, he is sort of a joke who doesn't seem like players would respect him too much...more of a friend than a coach.

Quite frankly, he's more suited to be a very good ASSISTANT coach. However, I do hope we can make it work in the twilight of Kobe and Nash's careers for at least one more ring. We'll see...

Different season, same backscreen by Pau on Kobe's man on the inbounds, for a top of the key iso to end the game. BACK TO BACK times......

That GIF is hilarious but like someone else mentioned, it's pretty sad when you consider that's our head coach. :man5:

mike brown can't make these analyses and adjustments on the fly. he's the guy who needs a long time to gather, break down, and process (hence being known for loving his dvds). that doesn't really work when you have to make adjustments during the game...and it may be something that holds this team back. i am hoping that as things settle and get more comfortable, the players (we have TONS of IQ on this team) will lead themselves on the court and reduce mike brown to more of the glorified cheerleader he kinda is.

Charley Rosen's ranking of head coaches

22. Mike Brown (LA Lakers): Makes poor in-game adjustments. Caters to his star players. Has been fortunate to coach Kobe Bryant and LeBron James. Known around the NBA as the most overrated coach in the league.
