So Mike Brown got fired by the Los Angeles Lakers. Now, I’m sure there’s some reason he got fired. I can personally think of a couple right off the top of your head. One of those being that the fix was in, and the best scenario for Mike Brown, was for him to win some games and be fired after two years. Now he didn’t make it through the second year, which could be seen as underachieving, but this is Mike Brown we’re talking about, aka the Black Flip Saunders. I have spent sleepless nights trying to figure out how the hell Flip Saunders continued to get coaching jobs. Dude wasn’t good (this showed up in Washington in a 2 – 15 fashion), yet he got great coach opportunities. Now it was easy to conclude that he got those opportunities because of good regular season records with the great teams he coach. However I always wondered why a black coach was not granted the same opportunity to masquerade as a good coach while being a bum. And then, he rustled out of the bushes, of good timing, and mediocrity… Mike Brown. First you have to put aside the idea of whether Brown can or cannot coach. When your career has been based on circumstance, it doesn’t matter how good you are. Instead you should celebrate equality, because finally there is a black NBA coach who has built a career on circumstances. Mike Brown wasn’t qualified for the Lakers job. He got that job because of his record with the Cleveland Cavaliers. However he’s not the reason the Cavaliers were a championship team. LeBron James was the reason the Cavaliers were in that position. In addition, LeBron James was a member of the Cavaliers prior to Mike Brown being hired, and was well on his way to leading Cleveland to the playoffs no matter the coach. So Brown essentially landed in a no lose situation, and parlayed that into a no lose situation. And that’s why he’s the black Flip Saunders. Eventually we’ll figure out if he can coach, because a Flip can only hide for so long in the NBA. But until them, I’m going to sit back and enjoy the show.
