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.

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.

WHAT:speechless:

The Los Angeles Lakers have fired Mike Brown after a 1-4 start.

Brown replaced Phil Jackson as head coach of the Lakers after the 10-11 NBA season.

Brown's agent, Warren LeGarie, confirmed the firing on Friday morning.

ESPN's Marc Stein had reported earlier on Friday that the Lakers would consider making a change at head coach if the team didn't make an immediate turnaround during their six-game homestand.

"Mike just called saying he was relieved of his duties," LeGarie told Marc J. Spears of Yahoo! Sports.

Mitch Kupchak had pushed to give Brown more time as head coach before the decision was made.

Never understood his fit with the Lakers to be honest. He just isn't the type of guy to be in a major market. He's a Minnesota, Cleveland, Minneapolis smaller market guy. I respect his keys to defense but he just really wasn't the right type of fit. Sloan would be a natural fit in LaLa land.

This team has issues that go deeper than the coaching level. If they don't get it together, they could have some players clashing. (Doesn't have to be important players clashing with each other, could just be Kobe vs the bench). That said, if they hire Sloan or Phil, they'll get it together sooner rather than later. I just don't see Sloan as wanting to deal with the egos.

I agree he's not a good coach...but again, 5 games is just outrageous. It's a brand new team. Yes, they had a full preseason to figure things out, but Howard hardly played in those games. It's just overreactionary IMO.

It's been more than 5 games, this goes back to last season. His offensive system sucks, and for a guy who supposedly preaches D, he doesn't do a good job at getting the best out of his players. Not to mention aside from being incompetent, he sucks up to his star players. The Lakers don't need a coach like that, they need someone who can manage all those ego's. Who cares if it's only been "5 games" though, like you said he wasn't ever qualified. Good riddance. Now all they need is a better replacement or all of this was for nothing.

He did more with last year's team than most the world expected. Go look at the Lakers' preseason expectations last year...

Again, he was never a good hire, and regardless of how "bad" he was last year, canning him this early in the season with such a drastically remolded team is just silly.

Especially if the replacement is someone like D'Antoni or Eddie for the rest of the season.

I agree he's not a good coach...but again, 5 games is just outrageous. It's a brand new team. Yes, they had a full preseason to figure things out, but Howard hardly played in those games. It's just overreactionary IMO.

The system wasn't working, sure...but again, it's only been 5 games.

No disrespect but you really don't know what you're talking about. The Lakers had tuned out Brown already. This year! And last year there were similar issues...remember Artest and Brown?

Brown's rotations, playing old players heavy minutes and not playing players that were brought in to help, etc...just really terrible.

And if you're going to make a change in coaches why wait? Do it sooner so there is more time to adjust. Are the Lakers still going to struggle? Yes, but at least there may start to be improvements with a coach that (hopefully) can use the players he has correctly.

It's like Lakers management are just normal Lakers fans. Sky is falling after every loss. Again, he probably wasn't ever qualified, but jeeezz...it's been 5 games.

It has been 1 year, 8 winless preseason games, and 5 games this year where they only won one game. The players didn't listen to him last year, they should have did it before the year.

He did more with last year's team than most the world expected. Go look at the Lakers' preseason expectations last year...

Again, he was never a good hire, and regardless of how "bad" he was last year, canning him this early in the season with such a drastically remolded team is just silly.

Especially if the replacement is someone like D'Antoni or Eddie for the rest of the season.

I disagree, this was much needed for the long term window. Whoever the new coach is now, well, there is still going to be issues with the team since they have to learn this whole new system. But imo, and in many others, Mike had to go. Just go back and re-watch some of the Lakers games this season, this was a much needed move. Heck, hopefully now Meeks can see a minute out on the floor at least :laugh2:. The guy has Ebanks and Morris out there on the regular rotation because Meeks is simply offensive oriented :rolleyes: The guy believes Ebanks and Morris are defensive specialists.

I do agree on your replacement statement though. This would be a waste of a fire if the Lakers get D'Antoni or Eddie..

Not at all. Just that he wasn't as awful last year as people pin him to be.

Often times a first year coach will still get the best out of players because they are trying their best...as professionals. However, over time the players may start to lose faith. I got the feeling Kobe backed Brown but was really tired of him...for his many failings as a coach.

You have to keep in mind players can win without good coaching. But sometimes a lack of respect will eventually affect performance. That is the impression I was getting. Could the Lakers have performed better even with Brown? Yes, they could have. The players need to take responsibility too. But the guy does not command respect and does not manage a game well at all. Really simple stuff too.

Not at all. Just that he wasn't as awful last year as people pin him to be.

except he is that awful. when your team is nash-kobe-dwight-gasol and your featuring gasol you deserved to be fired

when your a "defensive coach" and your defense sucks you deserve to be fired

when your running a gimmick princeton offense and doing handoffs and not utilizing your players strength you deserve to be fired

mike brown is a god awful coach. he was in cleveland and he is in LA. he had good players his whole career and never could get over the hump. players carried mike brown not visa versa and its clear this lakers team is tuning him out cause he sucks as a coach

he should have been fired the minute he said the lakers are running the princenton offense. like seriously the princeton? like hand offs and back cuts? seriously? and your going to facilitate that offense with gasol ?

he isnt good enough to coach this lakers team he doesnt have the cache or the crudentials to coach that team. hes a bum he cant make adjustments and he just stands there looking clueless. he was carried in cleveland like lebron and lets not forget the offense they ran in cleveland which was also very stagnant and horrid.

we will forget how good that dallas mavs team was 2 years ago and how bad of a matchup it was for that lakers team and we will also forget how bynum was disgruntled with phil during those playoffs from 2 years ago because mike brown won more playoff games last year without odom than phil jackson won with odom 2 years ago. and lets forget the 2 years before the lakers got swept when they won the finals 2 years in a row

who cares about context when we want to feel sympathy for an incompitent head coach who got fired after 5 games

(and for those that dont know i actually hate the lakers nothing makes me happier to see the lakers lose than maybe seeing the heat lose)

The whole Kobe not speaking to him in the first month of him being hired seemed fishy and Brown never once seemed to have control of the Lakers. They just played talent basketball. Never had an offensive or defensive identity.

So much for job security.

You all are knocking the offense...but the offense has been fine. I still think the Princeton with that collection of offensive talent would have worked very well. We might never know now, and we certainly never had enough time to find out.

If they hope they can last 82 games and a playoffs running a Steve Nash-led P&R-oriented offense, well, good luck.

Maybe the new coach will magically make the Lakers bench decent. Maybe he'll magically get Dwight Howard healthy enough to actually be the foremost dominant defender in the league, something he clearly hasn't been.

Bringing in a player like Steve Nash and Dwight Howard onto a team with Kobe Bryant and Pau Gasol, and expecting it all to work like clockwork from day one is a hilarious thought process. Regardless of how good or bad he is, they didn't let it all have a fair chance to get going.


I get the reasons to can him, it just was too early. Nash is out. Howard is on a new team coming back from a severe injury and clearly isn't defending like he is used to. The defense would turn around, regardless of who was coaching it.

Oh well. Hopefully for their sake they have a good replacement ready.

Forever the voice of reasons...whether or not the NBA wants him to be or not...


Former Magic coach Stan Van Gundy called the Lakers' firing of Mike Brown on Friday, "the most ridiculous firing in the history of the NBA."

The star-studded Lakers were 1-4 under Brown, who was in his second season as coach since replacing Phil Jackson. The team has struggled adapting to the Princeton offense.

Van Gundy told the Sentinel that Brown's dismissal was "absurd," adding, "Why did they bring him back? They changed the entire staff, changed his offense, got two new players (Dwight Howard and Steve Nash), have had guys hurt since day 1 and gave him five games to get it going."

Reminded that he was available to work with Howard again, Van Gundy, who was fired by the Magic after last season, joked, "I'm sure I'm at the top of their list."

name me some really good players cleveland had on their team that went to the finals

GO!

That's not the point I was making. I was saying Mike Brown deserves alot of credit for the success in Cleveland.

But to answer your question, chemistry is most important when building a team not talent. Those players on those Cleveland teams meshed well with Lebron as the results show.

its not the coach, its the players that don't fit. It was the same garbage in NY with Melo+Amare. Sometimes players don't fit and Mike Brown is the scapegoat

Another middle age, overweight African-American coach, not being racist but when has that kinda coach ever won anything?:face palm:

SVG is on the money as usual imo. 5 games is just not a big enough sample size to warrant firing him at this point in time, especially when you're entering a 6 game homstand with 5 of them very winnable to go along with a good chance to see if the offense can work. Is Mike Brown a good coach? No, but even for as hard as I've been on the guy, have you seen that Lakers' bench?

Kobe plus a big man is a bad fit? Kobe/Shaq did ok. So Kobe/Howard should work. Because that is the team that has been losing. Nash only played in 1 1/2 games so far.

Your comparing a 35 year old Kobe to when he was playing in his prime with Shaq. Hes a great player, but hes no longer in his prime. Its percisely because they are losing means that something is not right. Mike Brown can't tell players to not miss shots, or free throws.

Your point about the bench is dead on. While the Lakers certainly have a talented starting five (when healthy), they've got guys like Steve Blake running their offense.

He's 100% the scapegoat.

God I love that man...

I love Stan too but no one is saying everything done up until the firing wasn't stupid. Keeping Brown, implementing the princeton, etc now looks stupid in retrospect. But I personally think admitting a mistake early on like this is very smart.
