That was because Drew often did not play to his full potential. There was a chance last year...post All-Star break when Drew stopped moping about touches and just focused on defense and rebounding. It made a huge a difference for us as team. Drew still got touches here and there and some putbacks off rebounds....but the work he did defensively and on the glass helped us win 17 of 18 games.

After today's game, I'm really starting to like him.

I thought when he first got signed it was the beginning of the end, I was wrong. He's got this team locked in on D and really getting a lot production out of everyone.

He'll never replace Phil, but I suppose Brown was the best choice available.

Just to be clear there will be no one that can replace what Phil Jackson has done. But you can't deny the fact there is noticeable change In the way the Lakers have been playing under Mike Brown. Just watching him coach off the bench with the yelling and screaming is completely diffrent that we're normally used to. Especially at times when the staples crowd is quiet you bet you can hear Mike Brown pushing our guys. I'm enjoying what I'm seeing as the season continues to unfold!

The Phil of last season was a crappy coach. Saying he has 11 rings doesn't mean jack when it comes time to put it on the floor. Every year is a new year, and past rings don't score you extra points to start a game. Ask Rick Carlisle if he gave a (bleep) about Phil's 11 rings. Fact is Phil was not what he was 10-20 years ago. He was old, injured, and no longer had the mental energy required to coach a team to a championship anymore. That's why we lost: the players of a team will always reflect a coach's disposition. And that's why a change was completely necessary. Right now our guys play with energy and attention to detail because that's how Mike Brown coaches.

It's way to early to give a real evaluation. With that said, I will say that the team is showing a lot more effort at the defensive end and the youth and new guys are leading the older ones to hustle more.

Even though we aren't showing a lot of success with the offense we aren't taking any plays off like we have in years past. That I like.

I want to see the rotations settle down a little and a much better strategy than Kobe at the top of the key from the 5 minute mark in the fourth before I give my full evaluation (like anyone really cares.... :man10: ).

The only real complaint so far. The rotations are just :man3: Ebanks goes from starting to not playing. Barnes doesn't play in 2 games and then starts. All the while, Fisher is still starting. :bang:

I actually like what he's doing. It keeps everybody ready, and ensures they will be ready to play. It builds camaraderie and is a focus on teamwork. I also believe it will keep everybody in shape while also giving guys time to rest their bodies.

It also gives everybody a fair chance to earn their minutes for later in the season. I could be wrong though, just an early assessment and opinion.

Kobe and Brown should get along just fine. Their both basketball nerds and both very detail oriented.

MWP right now playing in the forward spot is garbage. He only is decent playing like power forward, but MB play a done Murphy in this position 28 minutes. Dumb decision. And why is he not playing Glock and Morris at all? They can not be much worse than what we have.

Brown benched Artest for the 2nd half. Played less than 10 minutes. Gave some time to Goudelock and Kapono with Kobe seeing more time at the 3.

Good move.

Would rather see more Goudelock than Kapono personally but guess he's too short most of the time depending on 2 matchups. Seems to have decent lateral quicks on D and can create his own shot.

Please, Mitch help him, send this guy out of here !!

One of the things that I like about Mike (vs. Phil), is that he's willing to ride the hot hand from game to game. When Fisher's really bad, he closes out with Blake. The couple times Blake has been worse, he went with Fisher. We see the same with Barnes vs MWP now too. There's nothing wrong with recognizing a player is having a terrible game and benching him, especially if the alternative is actually playing well. If Phil were still here, he'd be riding Fisher and MWP to a few more losses than we already have.

the Lakers are allowing 90.7 points per game and 41.8 percent shooting to lead the Western Conference in both categories. Those averages dip to 85.9 points and 40.0 percent at home, where Los Angeles has won six straight.

:jam2: Eliminate the plethora of turnovers every game and that would dip below 90 and below 40 percent shooting. That's rather impressive considering the lack of defense we had last year.

On another note I give Brown a 1 testicle out of 2 so far with the rotations and managing the lineups. He has the testicle to sit Metta down for quarters, halfs, etc.. when he is playing like crap, but does not have the other testicle to do the same for Fisher who is playing just as bad as MWP.

Overall you can't argue his work ethic, defensive approach and upbeat, talkative, always moving style he brings to every game.

Think what the opponents shooting percentage would be if we didn't let up 9 or 10 fast break lay-ups a game with our stupid turnovers...... Memphis shot 41% AND had at least 9 fast break lay-ups.... cut those out and they probably shoot 35%....

Our half court defense is pretty good.... some of the best I've seen in a long time. Even with Fisher we hardly ever let an opposing guard get to the rim.

Mike Brown also needs to have the stones to reduce Kobe's minutes. He's playing WAY too many.
