Mike Brown doesn't care that team is 0-4 in preseason
 
For now, however, Brown hardly cares about the team's 0-4 preseason record. He's used that time fielding endless bench combinations featuring some who may not even make the final roster. Brown has limited playing time to all of his starters, including Kobe Bryant (24.3 minutes in three games), Steve Nash (18.8), Metta World Peace (25) and Gasol (25.3). And Brown has expressed little concern on whether Dwight Howard fully rehabs his surgically repaired back in time to appear in a preseason game.
Brown said he will continue that approach tonight against Sacramento.

Ok, so he's the ON and OFF or procrastinator kind of guy. I'll take his word for it. BUT he better lead them to win first real season game or we will start campaign to fire him.

For once I agree with Brown, use this time to teach everyone the offense, get everyone ready and avoid injuries.

Our first game just got a whole lot easier because Dirk just had surgery and will miss over a month.....we will win!!!

What was Phil's record in the preseason when he coached the Lakers?

Miracles do happen.

I think this whole preseason thing is overblown. No matter how many times we go through this we get the same concern. Its not a big deal.

Lets see Nash, Kobe, Metta, Pau, Dwight + Jamison, Blake, Meeks, Ebanks all player 36 and 20 minutes each respectfully. Then we can make a legitimate judgement.

Pre-season has never been about winning...

Hahahaa 0-6 :roll:

Why do people even waste money when coach is not caring about winning?
It's probably going to be 0-9 with Brown.

The last year with PJax, I remember some win - not 0-6.

Even with the KINGS, they seem to have a lot of work to do still between the BIG 4. With BIG4, you have a bigger target on your back because everyone will be using your team as a meter stick to see if they are at champion caliber yet. I don't think it will be easy smooth sailing even with Dirk out...

I agree with you on the avoid injuries thing...oh well, I guess we just sit back and laugh at the loss.

Brown shouldn't be concerned as much with winning in the preseason. It's about working on things that need to be tweaked. I don't worry about preseason records at all. Most smart sports fans don't either. Things will be just fine in the regular season.
