Lakers Hire New Coach And Don't Care What Kobe Has To Say
Their choice? Mike Brown, LeBron’s former coach with the Cleveland Cavaliers, is the controversial pick.
People were expecting either Brian Shaw or Rick Adelman, so Mike is a left-field choice. In fact, Kobe wanted Brian Shaw, but the Lakers didn’t seem to care. Sports Illustrated reported that Kobe was “surprised” by the choice and hasn’t offered a comment yet. That’s not quite a good sign.
Furthermore, Jerry Buss and the Lakers front desk said that they don’t think players should be involved in decisions like choosing a coach. That includes even the great Kobe Bryant.
Sounds like there may be some lack of communication in the Lakers organization. They better get it together before they get handled like they did this season.
