Interesting move. He did have some success in Cleveland and he has experience dealing with an alpha male superstar.
Don't know a lot about him other than his stint with the Cavs. I guess I always viewed him as a "right place at the right time" kind of guy. Is he really that great of a coach?
He comes from the Popovich coaching tree.
A very solid defensive coach, which is what the Lakers need right now. It'll be interesting to see if he keeps the triangle offense
Interesting. Well it's better than Jeff Van Gundy
Huh? Makes no sense.
Seems like a better (safer) hire than Brian Shaw. Given the overall talent in Cleveland during his tenure he did OK.
Pretty tough to beat the Magic or Celtics in a 7 game series with a backcourt of Mo Williams and Anthony Parker.
I was intrigued by Rick Adelman but he's been around the block a few times.
I love this hire as I am not a fan of the Lakers. Nothing against Brown, but he is going to get a mud hole stomped on him by Kobe, who was barely contained by Phil Jackson, the premiere ego managing coach of all time.
I think that Cav's did a lot better with him in the games without LeBron(obviously wasn't a lot of games) than they did this year with LeBron gone and with a new coach.
Phil Jackson is the best coach of all time in terms of managing egos of players on his teams. I think Kobe was his greatest challenge. Mike Brown will not be able to contain Kobe's ego from destroying any sort of team chemistry and cohesiveness.
