I love when the person accusing people of being racist is actually the one being the most racist.

Getting back on topic, I think the bottom line with Mike Brown is that he was dealt a bad hand and should be given a full season (with training camp) to proof himself before we call for his head.

I was willing to give him a shot, but I'm pretty down on him right now. When we hired him I went on record as saying he deserves a chance, but I just wasn't impressed at all with what he did this last season.

I understand the argument that he didn't have time or personnel, but I just don't buy it whole-heartedly. He showed no creativity or willingness to work to find a lineup that helped. He gave Ebanks a really hard time and he over played our starters all season long.

Whether I like it or not, he's got another chance to prove me wrong. I hope I'm wrong, I hope that he can be a great coach, but from what I saw?... I'm not too enthusiastic.

I disagree and agree.

He was not dealt a bad hand. He had Kobe, Pau, Bynum on his squad. The Charlotte coach was dealt a bad hand.

But, I agree that a full training camp and season is a better gauge of his ability than last season alone.

We lost Odom, which was big. The guy was the reigning six man of the year. Also, anyone following Phil Jackson is naturally going to get alot of ****. IMO, it was a tough situation to be in on top of the lockout shortened season.

I have to say, even though my confidence in Brown himself hasn't increased at all since this thread started and I first posted, some of my worries and concerns have been allayed with the hiring of Jordan and Bickerstaff. Now at least I know he has guys that truly advise him well and both of whom he will probably listen to. Hopefully Bernie gets in his ear when he tries to do some horrible rotation and talks him out of it.

I have my doubts about Mike Brown but not based on that Denver series. It seems like every playoffs in recent years we've struggled with teams that we went into the series expecting to sweep. This season with better pieces & assistants I expect him to get us playing some amazing D, & with Nash, Kobe, the asst. coaches, offense will handle itself.

Last remaining "Mike Brown" guy is gone. Kuester is the closest to Mike I believe

http://twitter.com/lakersreporter
John Kuester has "been reassigned to the position of Advanced NBA Scout and will be based on the East Coast," per the press release.

Kuester had a large role with the team's offense in particular last season; we can surmise that Eddie Jordan will work with the O.

Chuck Person and Darvin Ham remain on the staff as assistant coaches, for those inquiring.


I like Person, he has good rapport with Ron and Kobe. Darvin Ham helped Bynum a lot with his balance and some of the other big men

Most of Mike Brown's true assistants from last year are basically gone.

Mike Brown bring in your staff........

(1 year later)

.........Mike how about we bring in your staff.

It's basically saying, we've invested some money in you and don't want to let you go after a year. So we will upgrade everything around you and hope your fat a** can wear flotation devices so you don't sink.

Guys like Eddie Jordan and Bickerstaff are being brought onboard for a reason. Potatohead insurance. Jimmy doesn't want egg on his face after hiring Brown, yet the rest of the FO probably thinks Jimmy made a huge mistake. Sending Kuester to the scouting ranks and bringing in Bickerstaff, Jordan, and Clifford is a compromise IMO. If Brown continues what he was doing last season, he'll be canned and one of the assistants (Bickerstaff or Jordan) will take his place. For now, the "it was a short season and no training camp" is the convenient excuse.

^While I'm a little less cynical about it, I think that's pretty much the measure of it all. Brown brought in all of his guys, and his coaching staff didn't do diddly. And that's including Messina for whatever reason who didn't work out here.

Now we're going to be rolling out Eddie Jordan and Bickerstaff and hopefully Kareem can come back in that same limited capacity he used to have.

Agreed 100%. I think the LA front office still believes in Brown's defensive philosophies, but they're trying to minimize his role on the team down to a defensive coordinator. The Nash trade, and those two assistant coach hirings absorb offensive responsibility from Brown, and it's probably the right thing to do. Mitch and Jim probably had the same intentions by bringing in CP3 last offseason. Brown can organize a defense, but no way can he coach an offense.
There are two teams that play in the Staples Center:
the LA Lakers and NBA Clippers.
