Lakers Hire Mike Brown
The Los Angeles Lakers have signed head coach Mike Brown to a 4-year $18.25 million dollar deal. Mike Brown isn't as horrid as some people are making him sound.
Mike Brown isn't a "big splash." He isn't a big-named head coach. He doesn't have a great track record of eye-popping postseason success. Granted, all of that is true, but it doesn't mean that Mike Brown is a terrible head coach.
If you're going to give LeBron James the benefit of the doubt for not winning a championship with a lackluster supporting cast in Cleveland, then why would you blast Mike Brown for not winning a ring either? That doesn't add up. Mike Brown doesn't walk on water, but he could turn out to be a much better head coach than a lot of people think he is.
