Exclamation Mike Brown could be gone

Pro Basketball News

Quote:
CLEVELAND - Could this season's NBA Coach of the Year be looking for a job before the start of next season?

It sounds ridiculous but it just might be the case for Cleveland's Mike Brown, according to several sources close to the situation.

The Cavaliers' front office has reportedly been in disarray since the team was bounced by Orlando in the Eastern Conference finals -- despite finishing with a league-best record of 66-16 and possessing NBA MVP LeBron James.

Some key members of the organization feel Brown was badly out-coached by Orlando's Stan Van Gundy, according to sources. One source said Cavs management wasn't only disappointed in the losses, "but equally disappointed in the (two) wins" in a series that went six games.

I wouldnt mind keeping him as long as he'd be an assistant

I honestly think that Mike Brown might have already been fired had he NOT won coach of the year.

Obviously, he was badly outcoached against Orlando, and after several years now, still cannot coach on the offensive side of the ball. Questionable substitution patterns have been a problem for him as well.

He does, in part, deserve some credit for keeping the team together during the injury spells that hit the team this year.

I don't like him. I was happy he got coach of the year, and I felt as if he HAD improved somewhat, but it was a quick trip back to reality for him. If he hasn't figured out how to coach all phases of the game by now, then will he ever?

Let's say if he is on his way out. What are the candidates you'd like the Cavs to look into? I hear Avery Johnson brought up a lot the pass few days since the Brown reporting.

I wouldnt mind Avery, but i'd want Pat the most. He knows how to handle superstar talent, and is a great coach.

I don't have anything against Brown. As long as this doesn't become a trend...

Avery would be a huge upgrade for the Cavs.

I wouldn't call him an outstanding coach. However, he knows how to lead this team, and so long as he does that, I'm fine with him.
