Lakers Lakers fire Mike Brown/Hire Mike D'Antoni

reported by ESPN

Quote:
Los Angeles Lakers coach Mike Brown has been fired after a 1-4 start to the season, a source tells ESPNLosAngeles.com's Ramona Shelburne.

It is not known yet who will take over for him, but a source indicated that it will either be assistant coach Bernie Bickerstaff or Chuck Person on an interim basis.

Sources had said earlier Friday that his job would be in jeopardy if the team did not perform well on its upcoming six-game homestand.

The Lakers have had a healthy Steve Nash in the lineup for only 1 of their five games so far thanks to a leg injury, while fellow newcomer Dwight Howard has acknowledged that he's still recovering from the back surgery that brought a premature end to his 2011-12 campaign and knocked him out of the London Olympics. Kobe Bryant has also been playing through a foot ailment.

The Lakers are off to the worst start in the Western Conference despite carrying the league's largest payroll at just over $100 million, which would trigger an estimated luxury-tax bill at season's end of nearly $30 million.

The Lakers are willing to pay so much payroll for their players, I don't understand why they don't pay as much for a great coach. At least you don't have to pay tax on a coach's salary. They should offer something outrageous like $10 million/year for someone like Pops or Thibs.

Hmmmm.... seems tailor-made for Phil....

I guess that Sloan and D'Antoni would be other options too.

Wow. Not a fan of Brown, especially the Princeton - for the Lakers, at least - but that is one quick trigger.

dude can't catch a break. Fired after back to back 60+ win seasons and now after 5 games to begin the season.

This dismissal means one thing............................................. ...Landry Fields,welcome to the doghouse!


Phil Jackson comes to mind automatically and Mike D'Antoni as next head coach. They should bring in Sam Mitchell though,seriously!

I think Phil made $10 million in his last year. He was willing to take a small pay cut to come back, but the Lakers ownership wanted to pay their next coach $2-3 million.
