Cut to him getting dressed, taking his time while the women all sleep comfortably behind him.

He opens the door to his room as the butler brings in his breakfast and a newspaper. He sits down on his couch overlooking the city, opens the paper, and pauses as he brings a bite of scrambled eggs to his mouth. He reads "Lakers fall to Utah","Metta World Peace backup SG", and "Jodie Meeks DNP-CD".

He calmly picks up his phone, presses #6 and the send button. The call is picked up immediately,"Yes, father?"


Jerry-"Get him the f*** off of my team." And he hangs up.

:bow: :jam2: :jam2: :jam2:

Awesome, realdeal!! Man, I am the happiest freaking camper in the world right now!! Jerry OBVIOUSLY said enough is enough with this garbage. Now this time around, I hope the decision making is made by Jerry and Mitch. Jimbo is the strikeout king when it's come down to coaching hires. He just cost the family a boatload of money, once again!


I think it's a little premature to jump back into the Jim Buss hate. First of all, he has proven himself to be pretty apt as of late. Second, I'm guessing he could have kept Mike Brown on if he really fought for it. Clearly that didn't happen.

"On Friday morning at the Lakers' practice facility, Brown was meeting with his coaching staff to discuss the evening's home game against Golden State, when a Lakers employee interrupted and asked him to step out for a few minutes. Nearly 10 minutes later, Brown returned and informed his staff that he had been fired."

I don't feel bad for Brown even a tiny bit. As far as I'm concerned he conned his way onto the team with his book of plays had in mind for us during his interview with Jim, preaching stats and supposed defense. Then, he still gets his salary when fired, millions and millions for doing nothing and he can go find another job as well.

...and whatever there was on those DVDs that he refused to let Jim Buss take with him. Don't forget those. I'm sure they were revolutionary concepts.
Nor can the Lakers get blamed for always making the right decisions over decades. At some point its not just luck or "gamble", its superior management and superior ownership.

I'm really curious to see if Backstage Lakers shows anything involved with this ordeal.

Or at least how much they'll show.

Brown’s camp believes the decision to let him go came straight from Lakers owner Jerry Buss and not from his son, Jim, or GM Mitch Kupchak.

Apparently, ODB didn't think too highly of waiting until December 1st to make a change.

I doubt it will happen, but man would I love to see the moment he was fired, the look on his face would be priceless to see, but I doubt it was filmed. I think we're too classy of an organization for that, despite ESPN all day saying it wasn't fair for Brown to be fired, poor Potato Head boo hoo, LEBRONSPN still has your back.

the way he's talking it sounds like he feels like mike brown got a raw deal...either that or he's just trying to be overly PC. not surprising i guess given his connection with brown

i think he's too invested to not be able to separate mike brown the man/his friend and mike brown the coach. cold as it may seem, it's business man, and mike brown was really bad for business.

Bickerstaff is like someone who gets fired, but is then told that they have stick around for a few more days until the new guy is brought in.
