bingo. i'm still sort of perplexed by it all really. given, brown will fix LA's biggest current weaknesses: pick n roll defense and closing out 3 point shooters.

however, can he handle the egos in LA? can he handle the media? will he gain command and respect over that locker room? kobe will have to be 'all in' and everyone else should follow. i just don't know if brown is that guy. seeing him stumble in crucial moments and be unable to draw a semblance of something creative on offense is worrisome.

that said, LA's won and they have heady, veteran players who know how to play offense together. maybe this won't be as much an issue because of that. i just see it ending up badly if kobe isos even more than he does now and bickering happens (and brown is unable to cope).

it sucks for shaw. the team that knows him best is passing up on him. they obviously don't feel confident shaw has it or is ready yet.

LA_Showtime, what makes you so confident that brown is the right choice?

Fun fact: Grimace was originally an EVIL character. Think of what the term "grimace" means. Right? Get it? Yeah, McDonalds was scaring children with this evil character wearing a frown, so they did a 180 and made him smiling bundle of joy.

I'll be here again tomorrow with another random fun fact. Stay tuned.

Kind of. I'd need to see Grimace making a "Oh shucks, what just happened?" face.

damn that picture is when Mike Brown got money and started to lose weight. We need a chubbier pic of him...preferably when he is wearing those fruity purple glasses he brings out from time to time depending on the outfit.

Very odd considering Brown's past with his lack of offensive plays.

My condolences Lakers fans.

To anyone saying what a great coach he is - the only thing MB is great at is defensive schemes, therefore he is a good assistant coach for the D, NOT as head coach.
