This was my initial reaction: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WK7lI...ilpage#t=30 s

But it's not nearly as bad as everyone says. He has an undeserved bad rep.

People should give him a chance, in Cleveland he basically only had Lebron to work with, but with the Lakers it's a whole different story, they got multiple great players.

Let's see, they hired a cheap coach for rebuilding purposes, because Dr Buss doesn't want to pay over $5M for a coach.

I am good with this signing if it turns out to be true. No one can step into Phil Jackson's shoes, they are just too big to fill. If the Lakers wanted to keep things rolling with the status quo, they should have performed better in the playoffs.

I think Brown's pedigree is good enough to command some initial respect from Kobe and crew. He did lead the Cavs through what has been their most successful period ever and has been better than he was given credit for. If he's truly a good coach, he'll figure out how to get the best from what he has to work with, rather than trying to use a formula that was developed for a different cast of characters. Even Kobe admitted that the Lakers need to recommitt themselves to having their defense be the cornerstone of their game. If Brown needs to enlist some help for the offensive side of things, he has shown a willingness to do so rather than having his ego preventing that from being seen.

It's not like the Lakers have had a huge list of candidates with sparkling resumes with Adelman topping the list that has been circulating. I see no reason to give Dunleavy the job given the results of his most recent stint here in Los Angeles, not to mention his previous Laker history. He may start out being OK, but things have had a way of going south for him as time goes on.

Shaw would been a roll of the dice and if they thought he was the guy for the job, I would have gone along. But as more time has passed, I began to wonder if it was all really just a dog and pony show to make it appear that they looked around some before just handing the keys to Shaw, or if they didn't feel B Shaw was the guy. It appears to be the latter for now.

Brown couldnt handle ONE dive, how he will handle MULTIPLE divas? Honestly, with all the "lets give him a chance"... why risk one or few years of still real contending team, if there are better coaches available? It makes no sense from any point I can think off. Lack of defensive mentality? Get Larry Brown, hell, hire Mike Brown as assistant D for the real coach, who can handle divas.

You can't remotely have watched Brown in Cleveland and compare his attitude towards LeBron with Phil really with any of his players. Not even close. Jackson was the coach, Brown acted like a fan.

TRUE

Mike Brown would be a decent assistant coach......that's all.

If we have him as head coach it'll make it that much easier for the Heat to win multiple titles

very surprised by this decision. Seems like a rash, knee-jerk reaction to the Mavs shooting an NBA record from 3 point land on us.

Regardless, the decision has been made. I've always trusted in the organization to bring a top quality product to the floor for the fans and I will hope for the best.

Mike Brown just has a"clown" aura about him. He doesnt fit the Hollywood role at all.

Wow I was stunned too but I can't say I'm shocked at my fellow laker fans reactions to this, why is it that if we don't pick up a future HOF'er we have no shot. My personally I like it, it's something new I was getting so sick and tired of watching broken triangle after broken triangle and Shannon brown just chucking away with 14secs on the shot clock and him head rushing shooters. Amd I cam go on and on about the lakers bad habits. Maybe a few tweaks to tue roster and may e in 2-3 yes we'll be some where (however Kobe ain't got that kinda time) but I'm
Not sure of this could all mesh together In 1 season.
