    Nice collection of photos.  How long did it take you to collect these gems?  Besides sharing it with the world, what else do you do with these pictures?

    But I didn't think they were going to have to settle for a turd like Mike Brown.

    Mike Brown has a 272-138 regular season record (.663), and a 42-29 Playoff record (.592).  Doc Rivers is 451-380 (.542) regular season, and 46-40 (.535) playoffs.  Now if Brown's record is indicative of a turd, what does that make Rivers, a stinkier turd?

    Not a huge Mike Brown fan, but I think the Cavs' success or lack thereof had as much to do about mopey LeBron quitting with South Beach on his mind.  At least Brown got his team to the finals and deep in the playoffs with one great player and a lot of role players.

    celtic fans are hilarious with their wild predictions of failure for the Lakers.  The Lakers next coach after PJ was going to get this reaction regardless of who it was, due to the FACT that they were replacing the greatest coach in the history of the NBA. Mike Brown has the DREAM job and will be very successful as he continues the winning tradition and brings titles to the Lakers organization.

    celtic fans love the argument of how PJ only coaches teams that are already built to contend although they fail to mention that PJ came back to the Lakers in 2007 before Pau came along. celtic fans are just not that knowledgeable about the game, but I cannot blame them considering most have only witnessed the celtics win 1 title in their lifetimes. Cool Oh yeah, and the fact that they have to listen and watch that bafoon, Tommy Heinsohn broadcast their games. The only celtic fans that ever witnessed the celtics win on a consistent basis are either dead or living in beantown area nursing homes. Wink

    Looks like people are not really excited with this decision...in La la land.
    Maybe you trolls should go to LA blogs and try to convince your fellow LA fans about this genius of a coaching hire.

    The Great Doc Rivers was barely over .500 (171-168) when the Celtics hired him in 2004.  Did you think that was genius too?

    good point. but if you know your basket ball you do realize that those are two different teams we are talking about. you are talking about a team that was young and needing a change with a new GM (Danny) and new ownership and on the other hand we are talking about a team that went to 3 consecutive NBA finals. so you want to talk about regular season record sure go ahead.
     Do you, as a Laker fan, really care if Lakers win 65 games and get bounced in the 2nd round of the playoffs or for that matter in the WCF. when Doc was hired, Celtics were cleaning house.In all fairness, Doc did not have Lebron james playing for him in Orlando. so the stats are what they are.

    Mike B is a good NBA coach but he is not someone who comes across as a master of adjustments in the playoffs. It is all about the title man. if you want to raise division champion banners in LA sure  Mike Brown is your coach.
    Already there are issues with Kobe with this hire. can he handle the drama in La land? will he be able to keep Ron Artest's head in the game?how about Bynum and his "trust" issues..
    if you want to bring up Doc's coaching record pre-celtic days to make you feel better about this hire...then so be it.good for you.

    Anyone the Lakers hired was going to have to answer the same questions that you posed, so what is your point? The bottom line is that Kobe wanted a defensive first coach, and that is exactly what he got. The rosters of the Mike Brown coached cavs and the current Lakers are like night and day. If he has even half of the success that he had in cleveland with the Lakers and their talent, Laker fans will be very happy in the end. Cool

    What else is new?  You don't think Bryant and Lakers didn't have these issues last year or two year ago, both title years?

    Okay, Brown has a better record 272-138 (.663) than Rivers WITH the Celtics 280-212 (.569) with near identical Playoff records.  The Celtics took a chance with Rivers like the Cavs with Brown.  Unless you're a clairvoyant, you're blowing a lot of hot air and basically have no idea how Brown is going to turn out with the Lakers.  And if you think it's all about titles as far as good coaches then I guess coaches like Jerry Sloan and Jeff Van Gundy are no good.

    Once again, you are making off the wall comments with nothing substantial to back up your statement. Kobe stated that he wanted a coach that is first and foremost defensive minded before the Lakers management made their choice. Is Mike Brown not first and foremost defensive minded? OK, my point is now made. You think that just because the Lakers management did not consult with Kobe over the choice, that Kobe is against it? Show me anything that states that? I'll be waiting, and as always, thanks for playing. Cool

    Never said he was thrilled, but he got what he asked for which was a defense FIRST coach.  The team had no idea who was going to get the job as they are not part of management. The players on the team dont even know if they will be Lakers next season for that matter, but thanks for your incredible basketball knowledge. Cool

    Kobe repeatedly endorsed Shaw as the next coach and thats the coach he and the players specifically wanted. Some how your a Lakers fan and don't know this. Now you spin in into he wanted a defensive coach. Nice try. He wanted Shaw as the coach. Period.

    No spin here. Kobe stated that he wanted a defense first coach. He did endorse Shaw, and at the same time he also endorsed trading Bynum for Kidd a few years ago, and we all know how that worked out. Cool

    Shaw was pretty much out of the running the first week of the coach search. No one following the Lakers should be surprised they didn't choose him. And half the team "endorsed" Shaw as coach when asked by the media at exit interviews - but nothing came remotely close to an ultimatum or demand. Kobe reportedly was fine with several candidates the Lakers looked at.

    Please enlighten us on who suggested Brown will be better than Phil.  While you're looking, let me say that NO ONE is insinuating that.

    Only the biggest Lakers homer could view this as good news, although I think every Lakers fan knows that the next coach will be a downgrade

    I would have gone for Larry Brown: big name who's a defense-first coach who is a little more proven than Mike Brown

    We shall see.  Nobody thought Doc would be the best coach in the league, either (myself included).  Maybe Mike Brown will come around the same way Doc did
