Default "Mike Brown didn't get fair shake" - Lebron

As the Los Angeles Lakers move forward in a high-profile search for their next coach, count LeBron James among those who took exception to how matters went down with Mike Brown.

James doesn't believe his former coach in Cleveland ever got a "fair shake" in Los Angeles and was stunned when he learned Brown was fired by the Lakers on Friday after their 1-4 start to the season.

James played five years for Brown with the Cavaliers before Brown was fired by Cleveland after the 2009-10 season, just weeks before James departed in free agency to sign with Miami.

"I think it's unfortunate," James said Friday after the Heat's win in Atlanta against the Hawks. "I just don't think he got a fair shake, honestly. With the shortened season last year, and five games into this year, he didn't really get a full season."

Brown was hired by the Lakers before the NBA lockout last season, which condensed the regular-season schedule to 66 games. The Lakers were eliminated in the Western Conference semifinals by Oklahoma City, who eventually lost to Miami in the NBA Finals to give James the championship he never won with Brown in Cleveland.

Brown was fired in Cleveland despite winning more games than any coach in franchise history. But he was let go amid speculation that his relationship with James had soured over their final season together. James was publicly silent about Brown's potential fate -- or any other matter regarding the Cavaliers -- after Cleveland was eliminated from the playoffs by Boston in 2010.

James shook his head and paused for several seconds at his locker when he was initially asked about Brown's dismissal in Los Angeles. The Lakers are reportedly interested in former coach Phil Jackson, among others, to take over for the rest of the season.

"I've got a lot to say, but I'm not going to say it right now," said James, who won two of his three league MVP awards under Brown in Cleveland and also led the Cavaliers to the 2007 NBA Finals. "I wish him the best, but I just think it's unfortunate and it's just, you know, how the league is. They can do what they want to do."

James didn't elaborate, and his session with reporters was ended by a team official after that final vague comment. James told ESPN.com he planned to reach out and speak to Brown in the coming days. The Heat are on a six-game trip that takes them to Los Angeles next week to play the Clippers.

What was wrong with it? Not even sugar? Not the right flavor?

I don't dislike Lebron as a player, but when you're arguably the best talent in the NBA & you even look a bit dis intrested in a series of that magnitude which ultimatly got Mike Brown fired you have NO PLACE commenting on the dude when he gets fired 2 years later

Now Lebron is scared of LA. I can just see the Heat locker room discussion.

Wade: haha Lebron life is so good. You leave Mike Brown and he ends up going to the Lakers.

Lebron: haha yeah lulz dumbasses.

Bosh: guys look at this. Points at news article that says Phil Jackson signs for 3 years...

Lebron: but...BUT...THATS NOT FAIR. THEY DIDNT EVEN TRY MIKE BROWN
THEY SHOULD HAVE ATLEAST LET ME HAVE 1 MORE YEAR. WHAT THE **** GUYS.
