INT. THE LAKERS PRACTICE FACILITY IN EL SEGUNDO - DAY
Mitch Kupchak (Michael Corleone), Jim Buss (Freddo) and Joey Buss (Al Neri) enter.
Mike Brown (Carlo -- the traitor) hangs up the phone that he was dialing.
You have to answer for the 0 and 5 record, Mike.
Mitch, you got it all wrong...
You infiltrated the organization to ruin us from within. Ahhh that little farce you played with John Kuester last season -- you think that could fool a Laker? And this year, turning Nash into Derek Fisher ...
Mike, I'm innocent -- I swear on ... Steve Blake's jumper. Mitch -- Please, Mitch, don't do this to me.
MITCH K. (as he pulls up his own chair)
MIKE BROWN (sitting)
Mitch, don't do this to me, please...
David Stern is dead. So is Mark Cuban -- Dan Gilbert -- Pat Riley- and Bennet Salvatore. Today I settle all Laker Family business, so don't tell me you're innocent, Mike. Admit what you did.
(then, to Joey Buss
Get him a drink, Joey -- and don't pour yourself one.
(then, to Mike, as Mitch shifts in his chair)
Come on. Don't be afraid, Mike -- Come on, you think I'd make my franchise a laughing stock? I'm Godfather to your son, Mike --
(then, after Joey Buss hands Mike Brown a glass of wine)
Go ahead, drink it -- drink
(then, after Mike Brown drinks)
No -- Mike -- you're out of the Franchise, that's your punishment. You're finished. At noon you will announce via press conference that you're resigning from the head coaching position of the Lakers to spend more time with your DVD collection ... in Vegas --
But my family lives in LA, Mitch, not in Vegas ...
Yeah, well ... now they do because I made them an offer they couldn't refuse.
(then, to Jimmy, as he reaches out his hand)
(Jim hands Mitch a plane ticket, which he hands to Mike Brown)
I want you to stay there. Understand? You can coach our D-League affiliate.
Only don't tell me you're innocent. Because it insults my intelligence -- and it makes me very angry...
Now who approached you? Was it David Stern or Greg Popovich?
MIKE BROWN (after hesitating)
It was Popovich.
Good. There's a car waiting for you outside to take you to the Press conference, and then to the airport. I'll call your wife, to tell her what flight you're on.
MIKE BROWN (as he rises, starts to protest)
Come on -- get outta my sight. And close your mouth for chrissake. The reflection from your teeth is giving me a migraine.
[Mike Brown turns. Joey Buss helps him put on his coat]
CUT TO: LAKER COMPOUND GATE - DAY
Rick Adelman is putting luggage into the rear of the car. Mike Brown gets
into the front seat.
Metta World Peace (Clemenza) is seen behind Mike Brown, in the back seat.
METTA WORLD PEACE
Queensbridge says Hello, Coach
Metta garrotes Mike Brown, who gets pulled back and kicks his feet
at the windshield, which breaks as the car takes off.
Mitch, Jim, and Joey watch. After the car pulls away, we hear the Godfather Title Theme music as they walk through the mall.
