Kobe Bryant wanted the Lakers' long time assistant coach Bryant Shaw to replace Phil Jackson but Jim Buss, the Lakers' owner chose Mike Brown. The saddest thing on the part of Kobe was that, he wasn't informed about the decision to hire Mike Brown. Thus, there are rumors that are circulating all over the internet that he's not happy with Mike Brown. Jim Buss appears to have made a bad move in bypassing Kobe because he thought that Kobe and Mike will be okay together because they are both workaholic. He didn't think about Kobe's mood swings and he admitted that he's now afraid of what Kobe might do against Mike Brown. Kobe and Mike has not yet met each other. Whenever Mike is asking him for them to meet up personally, Kobe always makes an excuse that he's busy with his family. He doesn't want to meet Mike. Jim Buss knew about Mike's problem with Kobe and here's what Jim said:
"I've seen Kobe go off the place a few times, but I'm sure the coach (Mike Brown) will know how to handle it. My dad loves Kobe and so do I; we think he has a lot left. And I know Mike has some ideas on how to elongate Kobe's career."
And now, to give you a full information on what's happening with Kobe and Mike here's the full interview of the ESPN crew with the Lakers' new coach.
