Let's be honest Brown's gut clogs the hole before he can get in over his head.

Mike can't do a shi* without LeBron. Give me any other coach in the league right now, we would be much better.
Don't expect us to play any better when season start, nothing is going to change until this clown is our head coach. i think that first half of the season will be very very painful for Lakers fans....

The best part of the Lakers being 0-8 in the preseason is the clock has started early on Brown. The front office will pull the plug on the "Mike Brown Era" with a slow start. Team just looks uninspired and confused. Lakers need to do what the LA Kings did last season. They need a coach that can motivate and get the most out of each player.

Last year it was Blake at the Sg and another Pg in the backcourt. Or it was Barnes at the Sg with MWP at the 3. This year it is going to be Ebanks at the 2 with jamison at the 3 at times.

Those moves make ZERO sense!

I think when he laughs so much, he doesn't exude that confidence and intensity that you need to control and command a team. Especially a team like the Lakers, and the caliber of players he has. He doesn't have the rings to back it up and get the respect. And when you can't draw the X's and O's on your own, and swap out players with crazy rotations (that never work)...then the players will just tune you out quick.

He needs to put on the game face. I have the same knock on Howard, no more clowning around. This is Los Angeles, we are EXPECTING championships. It's no game.

THIS!

it was unbelievable how much that coaching change helped the team. Sutter completely overhauled the atmosphere and attitude of the team. the trades were clutch, but having the right coach, pushing a workmans mentality elevated their game to a championship level. i've never seen a team respond so positively to a coaching change in my life, and i'm so grateful for it.

It just keeps getting worse and worse with this complete moron we have as a coach.

That was as embarrassing a display of basketball as I have seen in a while. He has a literal All-Star team to work with, and the best he can give us is this clumsy and disorganized mess?

It's pretty insane how little people seem to understand when it comes to preseason. We have one of, if not the worst bench in the league. This preseason who has been getting all our minutes? THE BENCH. Of course we aren't going to win any games. This is why a lot of the top teams don't win and the young and deep teams that aren't usually good do really well.

Do you all really think Nash, Peace and Howard are gonna play 15-20 half assed minutes in the regular season? god no.

wow. hes a terrible coach. hes not actually coaching. the team hasnt gotten better at all over the course of the preseason. in fact they got worse. 21 turnovers and like 20 the game before is unacceptable. nothing will change from now and until the first reg season game....how can it. its not like they werent trying out there. they were and did that bad.

kobe being back wont fix the turnover issues either. at this rate i dont expect anything for the first reg season games. it has nothing to do with "timing" or whatever else mike brown blames turnovers etc on. its just that guys are turning the ball over all on there own and with terrible lazy passes.

let nash run the offense. EVERYTIME. not this bring the ball up and pass it too a big on the peremeter and disappear. only mike brown can make STEVE NASH...one of the best pg's in the history of the nba, useless and unused.

pissed doesnt quite cover how i feel

I'll give him some credit for making Ebanks play better today. Devin stunk midway through the 3rd, Mike yelled at him at the timeout after he let James Johnson score on an alley oop. He became a much aggressive player after that.

He sucks. Basically the worst Laker's coach I've seen. I'd even take Kurt Rambis or Del Harris back at this point. Randy Pfund is looking like a hall of fame level coach in comparison.

I want this guy gone.

To me, he just seems so unprofessional. This team looked chaotic and out of sync all last year and all of this preseason as well. He got severely out coached by George Karl last year, and I dread to see what happens when he goes up against someone like Pop.

I don't see this guy taking us to the promised land. If we win the championship we'll do so in spite of him, not because of him. And that's not a good feeling to have about the coach. Our team looks so incredibly disorganized.

When I see the Lakers coached by Mike Brown , I have the same reaction as when I learned Adriana Lima married Marko Jaric : " Some things in this world just don't make sense"

Nash deserves much better than this. Dwight deserves better than this. And Kobe SURE AS HELL deserves better than this for his final years. Are we really going to continue to waste one of Kobe's last seasons with this buffoon level coaching? It's not worth it. There's too much at stake. Kobe has what this year and the next left on his contract? It's absurd that he is surrounded by teammates this good and a head coach this awful. It's not right.

It sure doesn't make sense ... one of the 5-10 worst coaches in the league for a top organization with a 100 millions dollars payroll ... you don't need a Popovich , just a silent coach which isn't a liability ..

I'm not gonna lie, this guy being our coach has cut my excitement for this season in half. He's garbage as a coach, he's a joke, as far as I'm concerned he's a con artist for somehow getting it in the first place. I think LeBron getting to the Finals under this guy shows how good he really is or something, it had to be in spite of him. This "offense" we're running is pathetic, Nash is being reduced to an off the ball guard, a cog in this offense of crap. I'm not even looking forward to games anymore, if this team doesn't start clicking in the regular season then Potato Head has done the impossible, taken an idiot proof roster and wasted/ruined it. Seriously, **** this guy.

I expected some bumps in the road..... it's not that easy to get a bunch of players used to having the game centered on them to transition easily into a equal sharing system.... That's why I don't think the Princeton offense will work long term. These guys are out of their comfort zone at times and you get things like turnovers and missed assignments as a result.

I stil think you let Nash run things and rotate the bigs in and out so they aren't on the floor with each other as much. That way each can get post touches and lord knows the bench will need one of them in with them to at least keep it within reason....

It is telling however that there has been no improvement in the preseason.... that is a concern for sure.

On offense they look completely unorganized. However that is understandable cause the lineup was a rotating door amongst the players.

But how is our D suffering so bad. Forget the transition D coming off TOs in the offense that no one knows how to run...in a half court set, teams are getting really good looks. If you consider our opposition in the preseason, these were "scrub" teams that were running up the score on us.

Coach B prides himself off defense....where is it then?

It's all a reputation thing with no substance. Just like he's known for being a "stats guy", I don't see that either. The offense has literally looked like crap and gone downhill since the 1st quarter of the Warriors game (1st preseason game).
