One thing to be said...the Lakers once again are missing wide open shots.

Lets not forget that this team was garbage with Jackson last year too. The problem is not the coach, its that the Lakers have nothing. No chemistry, no speed, no shot making ability and no killer instinct except for Kobe.

We have made 18 threes through 4 games in 60+ attempts. You're not going to beat good teams if you can't make your shots. The Lakers are at their best when they post up and play inside out. But that doesn't work if your perimeter players suck at shooting 3 pointers.

He played Kobe, Pau and Drew way too many minutes during the rs. His rotations suck, he looks lost out there... but he'll be back :man9:

Maybe he'll work on his coaching ... but I guess the only thing he'll update is that he maybe switches from DVDs to BlueRays ...

Sorry, but I don't see him getting fired. Maybe if they missed the playoffs or got easily knocked out of the first round. But making it to the second round and losing to a clearly better team won't get many coaches fired.

I'm ok with 1 more year with him. He did what he could with the resources handed to him. We had the same problems we had under Phil last year with largely the same core group of players, its a personnell issue more than a coaching issue. Give him some athletes, shooters and some wing defenders I think we'll be right back into it. We need to construct a team that can beat OKC. Onus is on Mitch and Jim to do that.

Brown didn't adjust..... he didn't call a timeout to change our offensive decisions at the end of the game so going away from what got us the 13 point lead is on him..... he watched it... he didn't try to change it....

When Bynum was fronted he didn't adjust to that.... the front is fairly easy to beat... it's a desperation move...just as Andrew said it was. You rotate the ball and he's under the basket in position or he creates a mismatch by having to be doubled.... instead we used him as a decoy to set up isolation for Kobe....

This is a real issue with this team. I don't think he will be fired but I, now think he should be fired.....

You could have easily brought Pau up to the free throw line when they were fronting. Brings Ibaka up with him, a quick pass to Pau and a quick lob over Perkins and the defense doesn't have time to rotate to help. And if they do it will be a foul, because it will be a guard trying to stop Bynum from going up for a dunk.

I've said it multiple times....Mike Brown fails to micro-manage the game and cannot do the basics (rotation/personnel) or able to adjust to something as trivial as the fronting in the post.

Out of timeouts we can never get that easy score. Never. Last night out of timeout we get a Pau long jumper and half the time, I don't think there is a play drawn up other than inbound the ball.

For some reason we never get easy looks out of time outs or seem to be able to defend other teams out of time outs.... this isn't germane to Brown....it's been going on for years for some reason.....

Brown didn't change things because he didn't think they needed changing.... he was about as useful to the team as I was....... except he gets a free court side seat and free drinks...

We should totally use the old play with Shaq. Shaq used to be fronted all the time, Shaq would push his man up and seal him in front of him, and the ball was passed to the corner man quickly, and the ball was passed down to Shaq on the baseline or a lop. If the center did a good job of sealing, the baseline pass was as good as 2 pts (because his man is now sealed behind him and Shaq has a free lane to the bucket for a dunk)....or we force OKC to rotate down to help. But it is almost impossible because if the 2nd big comes to help....all Pau needed to do is get into the key for the easy cleanup on the rebound.

Of course, Mike Brown just sat there adjusting his glasses (LOL, instead of the play)...and we just keep giving the ball to Kobe to play one on one instead.

^^ +1 all the way. Spot on post Roo. Completely agree. It's on the coaching staff and Mike Brown in particular. We never adjusted and watched a 13 point lead get whittled away over a LONG course of time. Plenty of time to change things up, try something different other than passing the ball around the perimeter and finally dumping it into Kobe with 8 or less seconds possession after possession.

We have too many weapons to be playing the garbage offense we have been much of the year and down the stretch when it counts in the playoffs.

I don't see that Brown has the ability to utilize what he has personnel-wise on offense. I see Cleveland version 2.0 but we are wasting two incredibly talented 7 footers.

he's got to call out the refs on perks illegal screens. now or never game 5. look at the way the refs are calling the heat-pacer game...calling every illegal screen. we need that even if it just saves us a few points bc that's all we've lost by and I'm sure would make them change their gameplan and this the game for us.

Either complain or send in our scrubs to hip check Westbrook into the 3rd row to send a message.

If you disagree with Kobe dominating the ball, call a time out and reset the offense.

If you see Bynum struggling, call a time out and give him instructions.

If you don't like Gasol hanging out at the top of the key, send in plays to run the ball into him in the low post.

We didn't pay you to be a F****** cheerleader. Coaching is more than chanting the word "physical."



WAKE THE F*** UP MIKE BROWN!

shaddap pau. you are a big shrinking daisy, stop looking for excuses.

you could have gotten plenty involved when you had an open jumper or could have driven to the hoop. but no, you chose to pass in a crowded lane to MWP and got your crappy pass stolen (crappy passes being a theme of the past 2 games for you).

if pau is gunna continue to be this passive than he is correct in his involvement in the offense. it's his choice...but he's got to find a way to contribute. look what Chris bosh is doing, a huge part of the heats offense bc of his aggressiveness and shoot first mentality. pau needs to board and look to score. if he sees a pass to drew or a cutter than take it but otherwise should look to attack and but more pressure on the d and ibaka which will allow others to score without getting blocked

Some more minor adjustments, Brown: 1) don't play Pau as blue-collar type player beside Bynum for too long. He is capable to do more. And let him play more center instead of power forward. He is a better player close to the rim. 2) give some minutes to Ebanks and Goudelock as Barnes is off. 3) play more sessions unless Blake is more aggressive to attack the basket. Sessions can score. He is a threat. When OKC put Durant on Kobe n Harden on Ron, Lakers didn't have a perimeter player can score. In fact, u can keep Sessions on the floor and let him play pick n roll with Pau n cut in for lay up or take midrange jumper. Lack of scoring ability is our weakness, especially in final minutes. It costs us so much.

Pau has no room for these excuses....he got replaced in a sense in the 2nd unit, as the man, when Bynum had to be inserted into that unit because Pau didn't go into the post and be aggressive.

Your involvement is nothing but jumpers because you don't want to go into the post. You've had plenty of chances to get your touches and shots, but you decide to jab step 50 times and then pass out of a 1 on 1 opportunity.

If you want more involement, get your a** in the post and demand the rock, you know your job with the second unit.

How come Mike does not stop Kobe's selfish plays ? I think Shaw will stop that in the same situation.
