Mike Brown to the Lakers?: The ESPN analyst is in “serious” discussions with the Lakers to be their next coach, according to Yahoo. Wait. How is Yahoo beating ESPN on this story? Mike Brown’s currently working for ESPN! I wonder which NBA reporter – Broussard? Bucher? – had to answer a terse email/text/phone call from an ESPN editor last night. At any rate, I’m a bit surprised the Lakers are going to give 4-years, $16 million to a coach whose career to this point was made by LeBron. I thought Brian Shaw would make the most sense, since he’s been coaching there as an assistant to Phil Jackson since 2004. You think Brown will be able to handle the egos in that locker room?
Big departure from Clipper Land.
Should be a good time.
