a little bit ago on 710, they were talking of the top 5 candidates and one of the candidates brought up were Nate McMillan. The other host was like, "Yea, I always liked Nate, especially ever since he helped that little girl sing the national anthem", and the other host was like, "yea, class act".

How do these guys get jobs as "sports experts"? That was Mo Cheeks.
Idiots.

Remember this lol

Mike Brown on Nash running same pick-and-roll offense he did in PHX. "They won a lot of games. It was fun to watch. Where were they in May?"


https://twitter.com/bruce_arthur/status/264144848213381122



Per @ramonashelburne, Mike Brown, who has never won a title, is saying Steve Nash shouldn't run pick and rolls because it never won a title.

I'm sure as he continues with his career, he'll see the ways in which he messed up in. But right now, we don't need that. We having aging stars that need a ring asap.


I quoted this for truth. This is a great balanced perspective of the situation. Well said.

I'm shocked that the Lakers made this move so soon, but actually not surprised......if that makes sense. Although I have supported MB and thought he could possibly have turned things around with this team given a little more time, I'm not surprised the Lakers fired him, just shocked it did happen this soon into the season. But having said that, I guess you have to congratulate the Lakers for being decisive and making an early call, irrespective of what call they made, to keep him or cut him.

Hopefully it will be the right call.

TMZ found Mike Brown at Chic Fil A after getting fired :man10:

http://www.tmz.com/2012/11/09/mike-brown-lakers-coach-chick-fil-a/

Image

Nothing softens the sting of being fired from the Los Angeles Lakers organization like a chicken sandwich ... just ask ex-coach Mike Brown ... who hit up a Chick-fil-A right after he got the chop today.

TMZ obtained photos of Brown hanging at a Chick-fil-A restaurant in Costa Mesa, CA around 11:30 AM ... just a few hours after news broke that he was fired from the team over their dismal 1-4 start.

We're told Brown was super-nice to fans ... taking pics and shaking hands ... but he never discussed the firing.

However, it appears Brown WAS in the mood to talk ... 'cause he was in the middle of a phone convo with legendary L.A. sports reporter Jim Hill when he stopped to take the above photo.

Brown seems to be handling the situation with class -- releasing a statement saying, "I have great respect for the Buss family and the Lakers’ storied tradition and I thank them for the opportunity they afforded me."

Not sure if posted yet but according to David Aldrige the firing of Brown came straight from Dr.Buss himself and not from Jim and/or Mitch:

Heard that Mike Dunleavy is a possible candidate...PLEASE GOD NO :disagree:

I'd be happy with either Phil or Sloan. Never liked D'anPhony.

That's exactly what I was thinking. It didn't seem like Mitch or Jim. Only one left is Jerry Buss. We all know he's still the boss no matter what :man1:
