It seems like Brown lacks the fundumental ideas behind running an effective offensive. It's more than x's and o's. Phil would mention many times in postgame interviews that it's important to put every player in a position where they can be successful. That's one of the primary roles of the coach.

I've seen him trot out the "we had open looks, they just didn't fall" canard a number of times already. These aren't rookies that Brown is playing out there...they're veterans that have been playing a long time and can make open shots. So why is it that they are missing? Is there something in the system that is contibuting to them not being focused or in rhythm?
It is Mike Brown's job to figure out why the open looks aren't falling. If it's the player...then the player needs to be benched. I don't for a second believe that every single Laker player magically lost the ability to nail an open shot.
It is very much the system in place that is the culprit. But Brown will be the last guy to admit that.

Nah, he's wasting it scoring 40pts four times in a row, making plays for others, being the bailout guy on too many possessions to count, and being the closer.
Your sour grapes lament is hilarious though.

But even Glock seems to check out on the road. His deep ball is streaky and he doesn't have enough of a green light to keep chucking.
The team as a whole seemed lethargic and not ready to compete today.

Simply put, he's in over his head.
