Get out of here with that s***. Some of us actually understand basketball and know that it takes more than one game for a completely new team to build chemistry.


dallas seemed to do it just fine, on our court.

first you say the 0-8 preseason held no meaning because it's the pre-season and when we get to regular season games, they'll try. well, as far as i know we're in the regular season and the play on the court and final results are the same. so what's it gonna be now? they'll try hard when it's been 10 games? then 20? i can't really take you seriously anymore...not that i ever did.

I don't really take you seriously either so I could care less what you think of me. The pre-season doesn't mean anything so I put absolutely no stock into it especially because our stars only played two games together. To be saying the Brown should be fired after one loss is ridiculous. It doesn't surprise me since the Lakers have the whiniest and most spoiled fan base in sports.

Retaining Mike Brown as HC is like putting your $250K Ferrari in the hands of some back yard mechanic.

This pinhead needs to be replaced - like yesterday!

REALLY misusing Nash. There are TONS of cheaper PGs that are more fit to the s***ty and limited role he's been asked to play.

We were beat by a team with a line up that has never played together either...... and they had more "turnover" on their team than we have had..... and their two best bigs were out..... Next excuse...

1 loss? Last season doesn't count? going 0-9 overall with this new offense doesn't matter? turning sessions & now nash into fisher doesn't matter? having the starters on the floor with 2 min left down 15 doesn't matter?

Get real, Brown is a joke of a coach that doesn't have the respect of his players, nor does he deserve it. Now I can at least see why Bynum acted out against him...the guy has the lowest coach IQ in the NBA

Phil was arrogant, confident, prepared, and calm. The team sleepwalked at times, but the end results are undeniable.

Mike Brown comes across as a neurotic, unconfident, incompetent, passive, turd. Did anyone catch the little mic'ed segment before the game? Coach Brown did not command any respect from any of the players. They seem to think he is a joke.

A head coach is not just about X's and O's, player rotations, and minute management. There has to be a certain relationship with the players, a confidence, a respect, and an ability to rally the troops. Mike Brown does not have this.

This missing piece CAN result in poor defensive focus and energy and poor focus and self confidence when shooting open jumpers or FTs. There is absolutely a psychology to coaching, which is what Phil was best at. Mike has plenty of coaches to do the X's and O's.
^ Gets it.

But on top of that, Brown's now managed to screw up the X's and O's part too.

So . . .

:freak2:


This, completely. Mike Brown is not a head coach, he doesn't command respect, he wants to be everyone's buddy, he's an assistant coach, a film guy, he should not be running the Lakers, with some of the greatest players in the NBA and one of the greatest players of all time.

^^ Agreed with Punk, BDG and Weezy. The players aren't playing hard for Brown. Sad to see it. And they're beyond confused. There's no excuse for them to be so out of sorts.

How many more games before this guy is fired?

Bring in Sloan. If they don't play hard for him then we can talk about the players.

Someone mentioned that the Lakers under Phil lost ugly games too. The thing about that is, these teams were coming off championships. They were complacent because they just wanted to start the playoffs. Alot of the players even admitted to this and Phil knew it.

We added 2 superstars that are hungry for a title and we're coming off a thrashing by OKC in the 2nd round. No hunger there tonight....no identity...the offense wasn't clicking but all you need on defense is effort and proper communication....zip on that end as well.

What exactly has Brown done? Where can you see his signature in these games and even last year? Dwight came back from back surgery to play on opening night...Kobe played as if nothing was wrong with his foot...Vitti is earning his. When is Mike?

Mike Brown's biggest achievement in LA thus far is talking like a politician and getting less done than one.

USA TODAY: "I think (former baseball manager) Tony LaRussa said it best one time," Brown told USA TODAY Sports. "He said 'Pressure is lack of preparation.' So I feel like I'm prepared. I feel like we're prepared, so maybe that helps out.

"To me, I felt more pressure going into the season last year. It wasn't from the standpoint from the team or anything like that, but because of the (lockout) shortened season. I really didn't know these guys. I didn't know the media, or anybody in town, so there were a lot of things that I had to get used to while coaching the team for the first year. But I wanted that (Lakers pressure). I wanted that. I had other opportunities to go other places, but I wanted that."
Really, you felt like we're prepared?

Million dollar question.

I'd really like to hear ONE positive thing that Brown has done for this team since his arrival.

I'm waiting . . .

Mitch and Jim better give the ultimatum to Brown, if we failed to win against Blazers at the Rose garden tomorrow, he will be gone for good. :mad1:

I know we're just fans, and I know we have no idea how a NBA franchise, let alone the Lakers, works. But if Mitch and Jim sat down Mike Brown, and JUST Brown, and said, "We need you to strap down, do all that you can to manage this game and win it. Losing this 1 game against he Blazers isn't an option."

I honestly don't know if Mike could do it.

It's designed to bring the opposing team's 5 out of the paint and out to the top of the key, that way when the guard takes the hand-off he has an open lane to the rim to work for a layup or a pass to his big man. It's basically a high screen only instead of the guard calling for a pick the pivot man has the ball and hands off to the guard who comes to him. SA does this all the time.

Oh and by the way ...

Gasol plays 40 minutes. Being driven into the ground ...
... meanwhile Jamison plays only 15 minutes, all of them at SF, outside his natural position (PF) ...
... meaning Devin Ebanks doesn't get a single minute of playing time after an impressive pre-season.

Just HORRIBLE management.

Who else was pissed when he had Jordan Hill guarding Marion when he easily could have slid Jamison over to that position?

Are bigs seem to not be getting the concept then. There were a few times today when Gasol/Howard got the ball at the 3 point line and was just left standing there dazed and confused. This would eventually lead to one of them being forced to put the ball on the floor trying to dribble so as not to waste the shot clock or for lack of a guard coming to receive the hand off.

I'm just getting tired of seeing it not be executed properly or even at all . Maybe It'll just take some time for the guys to get accustomed to it.
