Coaches react to Lakers' firing of Mike Brown
Mike Brown has been fired by the Lakers just five games into the season while trying to sort out a completely remade roster with two new All-Stars, one of which has only played in two games because of an injury. Current and former coaches react. So, what does Stan Van Gundy think about all of this?
Mike Brown has been fired by the Lakers just five games into the season while trying to sort out a completely remade roster with two new All-Stars, one of which has only played in two games because of an injury.
So, what do former and current coaches make of this?
But the Lakers now have an opening, and Van Gundy needs a job. What if. ...?
"I'm sure I'm at the top of their list," Van Gundy joked to the Sentinel.
With as backwards and discombobulated the Lakers are right now, I honestly wouldn't be surprised.
Also not surprising: A potential return of Phil Jackson. A source close to him through Yahoo! Sports said, "Its a good situation for him. But his heart has to be in it. That's a discussion he has to have with himself ... They kicked him to the curb. Now they are in the same [position]. Maybe worse."
Gregg Popovich via the San Antonio News-Express: "From outside looking in, he never had a chance to put the team together; that's pretty obvious to anybody ... whatever their reasons were, are their reasons ... but Mike is a helluva coach and never had a chance; it's quite premature."
Former Lakers player and assistant Brian Shaw, via the Indianapolis Star: "I have no comment."
