Bring him back here to work on this teams defense
Galley Boys are slop on top of a so-so burger and a bun you coulde get from a Covneninet food mart generic pack. They the Antoine Joubert of burgers; soft, sloppy, oozing grease and cheap sauce and extremely overrated by a biased fan base. Proof that if you throw enough cheap sauce shit on a burger you still can't overcome the lame burger. -JB

To be fair, they never should have hired him in the first place.

I don't see how that makes it fair.

Maybe they shouldn't have hired him, but they did, so they should've given him more than 1 year + 5 games. Or if they really weren't high on him, fire him in the off-season. Don't bring him back just to fire him 5 games in. That's silly.

I think Kobe personally delivered the pink slip through that death stare.

The Lakers got rid of Brown already because they are not the Cavs...

Kobe must has told Jerry Bus that he wants Brown gone, to which Bus replied: "Yes Mr. Bryant. Anything you say sir."

I think the combination of Jeanie Buss dropping the word that Phil was ready to return and the fact that Brown was attempting to install an offense he knew nothing about AND Kobe/Howard dropping the stare was a perfect storm of YOUR FIRED!

Too bad us Angelenos with DirectTV won't be able to watch. :clap:

No it didn't make any sense to fire him 5 games in, with a brand new team, and without the new coach already in place. But, they're the Lakers, they do things how they want and when they want.

Loud "We want Phil!" chant at the Staples Center last night; no suprise there...

I hope they get him bc if they do Miami will have a tough time dealing with them in the Finals, if they make it there. And I don't care which team takes Miami out, just as long someone prevents them from repeating.

A few hours after the Los Angeles Lakers' top brass abruptly fired coach Mike Brown and threw their season into turmoil before mid-November, Brown's former players demonstrated why there's still ample reason to think this team can be saved.





The Lakers should find out soon whether Phil Jackson gets the chance to do the saving — again.

Kobe Bryant scored 27 points, Pau Gasol added 14 points and 16 rebounds, and the Lakers doubled their win total with a 101-77 victory over the Golden State Warriors on Friday night.

Jordan Hill scored 14 points for the Lakers, who were uniformly stunned by Brown's dismissal after just 18 months on the job. Following a bumpy first half against Golden State under interim coach Bernie Bickerstaff, they pulled away in the third quarter with a 25-9 run led by Bryant, who also had nine rebounds and seven assists.


Precedent:

In 1981, after the 1980-81 season, Johnson signed a 25-year, $25-million contract with the Lakers, which was the highest-paying contract in sports history up to that point.[33] Early in the 1981–82 season, Johnson had a heated dispute with Westhead, who Johnson said made the Lakers "slow" and "predictable".[34] After Johnson demanded to be traded, Lakers owner Jerry Buss fired Westhead and replaced him with Riley. Although Johnson denied responsibility for Westhead's firing,[35] he was booed across the league, even by Lakers' fans.[4] However, Lakers color commentator and assistant general manager Chick Hearn said that Buss had intended on firing Westhead five games before the Westhead–Johnson altercation, but Hearn, assistant GM Jerry West, and GM Bill Sharman had convinced Buss to give Westhead more time for his offensive system to improve.[citation needed] Despite his off-court troubles, Johnson averaged 18.6 points, 9.6 rebounds, 9.5 assists, and a league-high 2.7 steals per game, and was voted a member of the All-NBA Second Team.[18] He also joined Wilt Chamberlain and Oscar Robertson as the only NBA players to tally at least 700 points, 700 rebounds, and 700 assists in the same season.[12] The Lakers advanced through the 1982 playoffs and faced Philadelphia for the second time in three years in the 1982 NBA Finals. After a triple-double from Johnson in Game 6, the Lakers defeated the Sixers 4–2, as Johnson won his second NBA Finals MVP award

Yes..they are the Lakers and they do things differently.... like win

And they hired D'Antoni. Alright, this season may turn out more entertaining than I had thought.

Jackson wanted to much and I don't blame the Lakers. I don't know how successful he will be though seeing as he's a horrible defensive coach.

Gonna go out on a limb here and say D'Antoni is a better defensive coach with Artest and Dwight Howard on the floor than he is without them.

Dantoni should look into hiring a good defensive coach to help out. A guy who made his reputation on defense. Maybe a guy who's a former head coach or something.

Anyone like that available?

Per Schuman: "In 10 full seasons as coach, McMillan teams had an avg defensive rank of 19. In 8 full seasons, D'Antoni teams had an avg def. rank of 20."

So yeah, sounds about right.

McMillan coaches really really slow, that doesn't mean he coaches good defense.

By all means, don't hire the greatest coach ever in the NBA. Unless Phil wanted to coach home games wearing a chin strap dildo and have R-Kelly parties in the Lakers's locker room, you hire him. And if he does want those things, I still seriously consider it.

He also wanted a stake of the ownership. I don't blame him for demanding anything because he can pretty much name his price. But I also don't blame the Lakers for passing. They had a great relationship and don't anymore simple as that. Neither side owes the other anything.

Sidenote: would now be a bad time for Phil to ask Bus for his daughter's hand in marriage? What's Thanksgiving going to be like?
