Phil Jackson is the greatest coach in the NBA history, so Mike Brown is nearly had an impossible job replacing the coaching legend. It is surprising and down right disrespectful when analyst tap Mike Brown as a substitute teacher or a defensive coordinator, Mike Brown has been on a NBA coaching staff for nearly 20 years!!!!!! He was a long time assistant of Gregg Popovich in San Antonio- this is not his first time at the Rodeo. Whether people like it or not Mike Brown is the head coach of the L.A. Lakers he has every right to bench Andrew Bynum when he’s taking 3′s or when he’s getting outplayed by Jordan Hill. I don’t ever remember a coach being so questioned for making coaching decisions more than Brown. Andrew Bynum was an All-Star this year, granted he’s finally healthy but Brown does deserve some credit for finally harnessing that talent into being a productive player. Brown has the Lakers with a roster that includes Josh McRoberts and Troy Murphy as the #3 team in the West, with a legit shot to make it to the Finals!! Its time to give Mike Brown some credit its Time!!!!! Mike Brown is not Phil Jackson but neither are the other 29 coaches in the NBA.
