Coach Mike Brown

Coach Mike BrownCoach Mike Brown, Although the measure has not yet been completed, it appears that Lakers owner Jerry Buss and has decided to go with Coach Brown, former Cleveland Cavaliers Mike as a replacement for Phil Jackson. Brown, the cheapest of the three finalists must sign a contract with the Lakers in the coming days or less.

One of the biggest problems seem to take into account the potential signing of Brown is its price. After Jackson Buss drained checkbook with a robust eight-figure salary to go along with the list of highest paid in the NBA, the Lakers are looking to find a good coach, at a reasonable price. Of the three candidates, including Brown, Lakers assistant coach Brian Shaw and former head coach of the Houston Rockets’ Rick Adelman, Brown would most likely take the lowest bid of all.

Despite the fact that Brown, in my opinion, was the lowest coach of the trio, it’s hard not to have faith in making Buss. If he feels that Brown has what it takes to lead the Lakers to an NBA championship, then there must be something inspiring that has shelled on.

Brown is a defensive-minded coach to be able to add a new factor of blocking the defense of the Lakers. Mix that with the alignment of the Lakers and extremely offensive talent, “and seems to be a winning recipe. However, the story of Brown as coach has a particular defect, which leaves room for doubt scattered through the streets of Los Angeles.

Getting the most out of LeBron James (white) and a mediocre record, he managed to turn in an impressive regular season record from 272 to 138 during his time in Cleveland. Throughout his five years with the Cavaliers, Brown made the playoffs year in history. That was when things took a turn for the worse. In five playoff games, the Cavaliers reached the finals only once even with a player the caliber of James on the list. Even during the demonstration in the finals, which did the Spurs in San Antonio sweep. Brown struggled to make the most of opportunities for the postseason, and was fired before the start of the 2010-2011 season. During that season, spent time with ESPN as ananlyst.

The measure still is not written in stone, but do not flatter yourself that no one will be given the reins in Los Angeles, in addition to Brown. That leaves open Shaw at the head of another team like Golden State Warriors with the hope of being a head coach. As for Adelman, I’m sure you can find someone who would love to have his skill as a coach on your sidelines.

The only thing that worries me is the ability to comply with Brown Buss, simply because it is cheaper than other options. The window of opportunity remains open for the Lakers, but most likely having second or third options are not going to make it easier to squeeze through. If Brown is signed for that reason, although I doubt Buss admit it, we all cannot thank Jackson of the Lakers bone bank account dry.

A great movement, like the trade for a player like Dwight Howard Orlando Magic (Notes) could make the transition a little easier for fans of the Lakers to swallow. However, only time will tell what the future holds for the organization with Brown at the helm.

If it’s any conciliation, I bet Kobe Bryant (notes) is excited to have the chance to win with Brown as head coach, something that James could never do. In the meantime, please refrain from breaking things in a fit of rage.
