Mike Brown Makes The Biggest Mistake Of His Lakers’ Coaching Career

I thought Mike Brown would at least wait until the season actually started to screw up. Thought it might be a few botched play calls or miscommunication with Kobe that would make me label him the biggest mistake in the Lakers’ franchise history.

Unfortunately for him, adding ex Pistons’ coach John Kuester to the mix was probably the worst offseason move he could have made.

Mike Brown To Be Named Lakers Head Coach, Replacing Phil Jackson

 

According to Matt Steinmetz, who is an NBA reporter for CSN Bay Area, two NBA sources have confirmed that Mike Brown will be the Lakers Head Coach.

Here is what Steinmetz had to say in his report:

Brown, the former coach of the Cleveland Cavaliers, is expected to be named the new coach of the Los Angeles Lakers, according to two league sources.

Brown was considered a frontrunner for the Warriors’ job, but is expected to sign a four-year contract worth approximately $18 million with the Lakers — succeeding Phil Jackson as coach.

All I know is he has some pretty big shoes to fill. To pay Brown MORE than Phil though? Really? What are your thoughts on this Lakers fans?
