Originally written November 06, 2012 on 5TH QUARTER MAGAZINE:
Alex Kennedy, an NBA writer for Hoops World, recently gave his views on the coaching situation with the Los Angeles Lakers.  The Lakers finally got their first win on Sunday evening after dropping all their preseason games and the first three games of the regular season.  The losing aspect made Laker fans really irritated and are pleading for the firing of head coach Mike Brown.  For one thing, he is implementing an offense that he, himself, probably does not understand.  He had to hire former player and coach Eddie Jordan to implement the Princeton Offense.  For Mike Brown, any losses that come from now until the end of November could mean his future. Jerry Sloan to L.A. by December 1.  Nash and Howard are the new Stockton and Malone.  He wants a ring, not to mention the money.  He didn’t seriously consider Orlando, Charlote or Portland over the summer because he knew Los Angeles would open up. This may just be a source, but these ”rumors” just do not float around like that.  With Jerry Sloan waiting to step in, Mike Brown better hurry up and get the “W” column going this month or he will be unemployed come December 1st. Kennedy of Hoops World also points out that Mike Brown has set rotations and that many free agents wanted to join the Lakers, but with a set rotation, they would end up warming up the bench.  For example, Jodie Meeks who was to be the one to relieve Kobe Bryant at the two.  Meeks has not seen much action, even though the league knows his skills as a shooter.  This is due to Brown being stubborn with his useless set rotations.  Perhaps that explains why the bench last season and this season stinks.
