Offensively I would have to say Mike Brown. Any team with a big 3 of Gasol, Bynum, and Kobe that is struggling to reach 90 ppg is a complete failure on the coach.

Although, I would have to say that I am impressed with his defensive coaching. Unfortunately his horrible offensive schemes totally dwarf everything he has accomplished on the defensive end.

Technically its gotta be Mike D'antoni. His coaching philosophy is to get a great PG to make all the important decisions. Still love the guy and want him to win in NY. Love watching his style of ball.

Mike Brown seems to be the easy answer, but he is a really good defensive coach.

The answer is, Randy Wittman, without a doubt.

edit: Holy ****, I actually said he was a good offensive coach, didn't mean you offend you Laker fans, I swear I meant defense.

mmm i have a 7 foot dude with probably the best feet move and inside scoring moves.

what can i do with him?

Oh yeah, i know, have him patrol the 3 point line and shoot jumpers.



mmmm , i have two seven footers that know how to score.

what can i do?

Oh yeah allow my sg to shoot more times a game than he did whan he was 10 years younger.

fourth quarter what do i do?

let my dude play 1 on 5 while the other 4 players stand our there watching.


i have depth problems

what can i do?

oh yeah have my thre best men play 46 minutes per game, regardless if we are winning by a ton or losing by a ton, they will be fantastic come playoff time....


ITS NOT EVEN CLOSE, i wouldnt allow Mike Brown to have the duty of feeding a hamster daily.

02-28-2012, 11:22 PM
Mike Brown is an elite defensive coach. The Lakers defense is the best I have seen it in years. Sure, if we are having a thread about who the worst offensive coach is, Brown is a decent answer. But you are now holding him accountable for simply playing Gasol wrong.

2 ends.

How hard is it to google "Bobcats coach"?
Paul Silas, might have heard of him, only a 3 time champion and an all time defensive player.

It's the coaches fault he lost players because to trades or FA because..................... (LOL NAZR)

Doc Rivers lost 18 straight games as the Celtics head coach HE MUST SUCK SO MUCH

Just because you're young and don't know Paul Silas doesn't make him a bad coach, neither does that fact that they traded away talent and drafted poorly in the past.

LOL. Says a known Mike D hater. :rolleyes:

When he has his PG its fun to watch, but you haven't watched 240+ games of a Mike D'antoni team led by Duhon, Nate Robinson, Toney Douglas, etc. Heck, even Felton was gawd-awful. I don't know where people get this idea that Felton was a good player on the Knicks. Ugliest 17-9 guy i've ever ****ing seen.

Mike Brown took a team of Lebron and d league talents to a 66 game reg season win and conference finals. Your Lakers team got swept in the play-offs with a hall of fame coach.

Maybe your team is just past their prime.............I think your team is overacheiving but many of you think not. 3 good players and 10 garbage players no one will want...and you're expecting better?

Brown was fired before LBJ left. One might have surmised that LBJ did carry the Cavs, but might also surmise that Brown's departure was another reason the Cavs went downhill.

Brown playing his stars so many minutes even after the outcome of the game has been determined is setting someone up for injury. You're supposed to play the bench when there's a blowout.

He's been overly out-coached majority of the time the last 4 yrs...especially in the last 2 yrs. He's the kind of guy that will call a timeout, and out of the timeout....Amare chucks up a 25ft 3-pointer. That's just bad basketball and coaching.

Stop sipping on that Hatorade. Dude's never had a full team to work with until this season.

And even then, in this shortened lockout season, he's had no practice and not until 3 weeks ago, to find a PG that can run a Pick and Roll.

Nah I agree. His offensive sets are terrible and for a coach who supposedly preaches defense, he doesn't game plan that well (even considering the lack of post defenders or a healthy 3). It's sad that we're the worst team defending the 3. One thing Avery has us doing well is defending those freethrows. oFT% of 71.4% best in the league!! woo

Well, let's just say that if the NBA had a defensive coordinator position, Mike Brown would be great at it. Unfortunately, over his entire head coaching career, he's never figured out that offense is important, too.

No they couldn't. The Thunder literally have no post presence in terms of scoring. On a night Durant and Westbrook are missing layups and jumpers, what happens? Although Sloan coaching OKC would be marvellous, Scott Brooks isn't close to the worst coach.

Locoweed
02-29-2012, 05:58 PM
The worst is always your teams coach if you aren't winning as many games as you think you should be. So any large fan base team like the Lakers, Celtics, etc that aren't winning will get the most worst coach votes.

Simple math.

Did you see OKC's halfcourt offensive sets against Memphis and Dallas?

Can you explain why a team with good defenders like Westbrook, Thabo, Harden, Durant, Ibaka, Perkins and Collison (i.e. their main rotation) has a middle of the pack defense?

Give them a decent coach and that team is absolutely dominating. Record is nice, but it doesn't tell the full story like the amount they are winning by or their struggles against halfcourt teams. Their record is almost purely due to their talent, not coaching.

Now I'm not sure if Brooks is the worst, but he certainly gives guys like Vinny a run for their money. Same with Spo.

Hawkeye is right on the money though. For anyone who says it's Mike D or Brown are only looking at one side of the floor. Any coach that is elite at at least one side of the floor cannot be looked at as the "worst head coach".
