The Lakers didn't have their head coach patrolling the sideline. Mike Brown left before the start of the Lakers' 103-97 victory over...

Tayshaun Prince regrets trouble with former coach

The Detroit Pistons were a dysfunctional family the last two years. John Kuester was in a bit over his head in dealing with a rebuilding team that had very little direction -- a Frankenstein mix of the championship Pistons teams with a group of young players who needed time to make mistakes. The old guard fought back a bit last year and it eventually got Kuester unceremoniously...

Kuester was fired in June, and the team hired Lawrence Frank to replace him. Frank isn't interested in dwelling on the past.
