I don't get this signing at all. Sure, LA will be great defensively, but with a 33 year old Kobe as the lone off-the-dribble creator & spot-up shooters in limited supply as it is....the offense could get downright ugly at times. LA will likely go from a perennial offensive powerhouse under Phil to middle-of-the-pack next season.

Maybe he will keep the triangle and just help them on defense.. That would be positive for the Lakers... I wonder how he is going to handle kobe though.. OH NO

Brown got his ass outcoached in the playoffs the last couple of years though.

A basketball genius he ain't. He should help the Lakers defensively, but it's not like Phil Jackson didn't know how to coach defence.

The Lakers are just an old team that doesn't like to expend energy on the defensive end. It will also be interesting to see if Brown can keep all those egos in check, seemed to be some schisms this year already with Kobe/Gasol/Bynum.

Lakers will be fine in the weak Western Conference though during the regular season.

LA would be smart to trade bynum for Gay and some other piece.. I think they would become better cuz that would give Pau more space to work with... They would get a player that has given Bron a hard time in the past and the athleticism to defend the sf position..

I would say his sets were perfect for that Cav's team.

Posters really think he will run the same stuff??

Dude is a tremendous coach, but is also pushing 70 years old at this point I believe.


That isnt the road for LA either.

They honestly do. Which is baffling to me. Lakers have an entirely different team than that Cav's team. Why on EARTH would he run EXACTLY the same offense?

He's a good defensive coach, but you can't ignore the fact that he hasn't shown a great ability to make adjustments in the playoffs. And his sub patterns were questionable, especially last year.

He's not an good offensive coach so I don't understand the interest. He would be a could assistant to Adelman. But Brown IMO is not the best choice for the head job.

The lakers lost this year solely because of their terrible defense. That will hopefully get fixed.

And I really don't see their offense changing all that much. A huge part of their offense was kobe operating in iso sets in the post and they're still a great offensive rebounding team so none of that will change.

The lakers NEED to get a knock down shooter though. I'll never understand why they don't go after a korver type that can knock down the open shot. With all of the offensive rebounds they get and with kobe's ability to draw the defense in it would be so valuable.
