Please name an agent who does NOT ask for top dollar for his client???????
I mean an agent who is actually employed
I don't get what the rush was? They should've been in negotiations with Adelman at this point where do they think he or Brown were going to go?
L.A is the best job out there for a coach.....and despite what Adelman's agent may have been pushing, he was NOT going to get PJ money from anyone. IMO this was just a boneheaded screwup.
What also strikes me as being weird is that there may be an extended strike or work stoppage. I may be wrong on this but dont coaches get paid during this type of situation in the NBA? You have the potential to pay a coach for months where he cannot work with players......but I guess you DO have to have a guy in place for when it's over.
The Lakers knew for the entire year that Phil was leaving......no question about that, this was far more than enough time to decide what the proceedure should be and if Kobe should be in the loop or not.
It shows a clear sign of incompetence for Buss to say NOW that Kobe should've been involved
Is Mike Brown a guy who is going to lure free agents to the team at a lower price.......are guys going to have that kind of confidence in his abilities?????
He didn't seem to have any pull at all in Cleveland despite Lebron being there.
