If we need Kobe to play 40 minutes in order to win with this team and this talent, Mike Brown needs to go because he is clearly not maximizing the potential of this team.
So in other words, I do care if we win or lose. Mike should be able to win 55-60 games easily with Kobe's minutes down to 32.
Agreed. He won 60+ games with LeBron and some scrubs. He should be able to ride Dwight during the regular season for 60 wins or so, leaning on Kobe and Nash as required. Of course, we'll lean on them all equally, but he should be able to get to 60 wins with this team easily.
MUCH weaker eastern conference though, and it's still weak compared to the West..
