Through his first year as the head coach of the Los Angeles Lakers Mike Brown has watched his team play inconsistently all year and that came to fruition on Saturday night when the Lakers had a double digit lead and let it slip away.  With a win the Lakers would have tied the series at 2 a piece but instead they now trail the series 3-1 and are facing elimination tonight in Oklahoma City.  On Saturday the Lakers were playing dominate by going through Andrew Bynum and Pau Gasol who in the first 3 quarters had 26 points on 12-23 shooting and numerous rebounds.  Then for some reason they stopped going to them in the 4th quarter with them only having 2 points on 1-2 shooting and only grabbed one rebound, yes I said one rebound between two 7 footers.  Mike Brown either doesn’t have the respect of his team or he just doesn’t know how to coach this team the stretch.  One way or another I believe 1 year was enough for coach Mike Brown in Los Angeles.  All year long this team has been a roller coaster ride including the playoffs, going 7 games with a Denver Nuggets team that really had no right to take LA 7 games but the Lakers let them.  This team just doesn’t play the same way it did just a year ago and the proof is in their record and performance.  You don’t know what your going to get quarter by quarter from the Lakers let alone game to game and that’s a problem!  The Lakers are the only team left in the playoffs that don’t have true identity and to me that’s because of the coach.  To me Mike Brown has to go, do you agree or disagree?  Can Mike Brown truly lead this team to where they believe they should be, the NBA Finals?  Will Mike Brown be back next year in LA?  Let me know what you think below and don’t forget to always check out SportsZone on the tunein radio app (search clubzone) and on from 12-2pm eastern every Monday through Friday!!!  You can also call in and voice your opinion at 201-430-2119.  This blog is available on both as well as .
