    Wait, just this week Buss told the media that Brown was safe. I'm just completely shocked.

    Unfortunately, this means our swap from the Lakers will probably end up being worth a lot less than it would have been otherwise.

    What are the odds of Brown replacing Whitman in DC?

    For the Lakers it has to be Brian Shaw, doesn't it? I just hope they stay away from Scott.

    Don't worry, it looks like they want to hire D'Antoni. They'll still suck.

    Poor Mike Brown keeps getting screwed by prima donna star players. He needs to coach the Timberwolves/Magic/Wizards, etc.

    What he needs to do is learn how to run a semblance of an offense.

    Worst adjuster in NBA history. Just downright awful and stubborn.

    Some type of game-management skill would be useful as well.

    Ludacris = rapper/"actor" from Georgia
    Ludicrous = amusing or laughable through obvious absurdity, incongruity, exaggeration

    Sorry, not usually a grammar stickler, but come on man.

    Chris Grant is really starting to look like a genius. Introducing a complicated fast-paced offense like D'Antoni's with a roster as old as the Lakers would be a bad move, even if Nash would help with the transition. Shaw would be smarter, but so many players on this roster haven't played in the triangle before, and there's a steep learning curve. I'm not sure where the Lakers go from here. They are way too talented to miss the playoffs, but it's starting to seem like this will be a team that struggles for the season.

    That's crazy- They must have someone in mind to pull the trigger like they did. Mike D'Antoni seems to be the name most batted around. I guess if you don't feel the guy will ever be good enough to get the job done and you have the ability to land the guy you want now, you do it. The question is, is that really the case or did they just kick Mike Brown to the curb because he is 1-4 at the start of the season. If they are promoting retreads like Eddie Jordan or Bernie Bickerstaff, lol.

    Mike Brown is just one of a million example in sports and the workplace in general of someone getting promoted past their competency level. He was a great defensive coach, but he's a terrible head coach because he doesn't know how to manage a game or make appropriate adjustments. As a defensive coach, this wasn't an issue, but it loses games (especially playoff games) for a head coach. Brown is also pretty inept when it comes to running an offense, and thus far has seemed pretty unwilling to bring in a talented offensive coach to run it for him.

    Other Cleveland sports examples are Pat Shurmur (who wasn't even a good offensive coordinator and should never have been promoted to head coach) and Romeo Crennel (see: Brown, Mike). Some guys just aren't meant to be head coaches.

    For anyone on this board who works for a living, you probably see this kind of thing all the time. Everyone has a competency level, and if they're promoted past it, they're going to flop.

    Shame we don't hold our coaches to such high standards. We might actually have a winner in this town.

    I'd love him to have a shot at fixing our defense and instilling his defensive principles on this young team.
