    Mike Brown Is The New Lakers Head Coach: He Replaced The Aging Phil Jackson





    After Phil Jackson announced in the game one of their series against the Mavericks that he will retire next season, the Lakers' quest for a new head coach has begun. First some of the players want Bryan Shaw to succeed Jackson. Some members of the Lakers' staff wants Rick Adelman, but in the end, who would have thought that Mike Brown would be the chosen one. He won the job hunt. Congratulations Mike.

    Bryan Shaw was very close to grabbing the job as the new head coach but the Lakers' owner, Jerry Buss didn't want to follow the will of his players. Kobe wants Shaw but Buss didn't want Shaw. It will be the owner's will that will have to prevail. Buss might not want Kobe to have his way if Shaw will be their head coach. Thus, we now have Mike Brown as the new head coach.

    Mike Brown was the former head coach of the Cleveland Cavaliers. When they lost to the Boston Celtics in the Playoffs he left Cleveland together with LeBron James. This season he stayed away from any coaching job. Mike is now looking to start a new with the Lakers starting this summer.

    All throughout Mike Brown's coaching career he's known as a defensive coach. He's a proof that defense can help a team win several games. In 2009 Brown led the Cavaliers to its best record, 66 wins and 16 losses. He also made LeBron a defensive player as he placed second to Dwight Howard for the defensive player of the year. Brown was eventually named coach of the year because of that historical achievement. But I know that he rarely uses the Triangle offense, which is the Lakers primary offensive set-up. Well, as far as I know, the Lakers are now searching for a blue ocean, meaning, they want a new system because the Triangle offense is now well studied by other teams. In fact they were swept by the Mavericks because the Triangle offense was no match against the box type offense of Dallas. Brown can introduce a more effective offensive set-up for the Lakers.

    Mike Brown bargained with the Lakers regarding his coaching contract. The Lakers gave in to his offer. He wants 6 million dollars per season as a salary. At first the Lakers were hesitant in acquiring Brown because they only have 3 million dollar up to 5 million dollar budget for a coach, but they realized that Brown has the potential to lead the Lakers to the promise land next season. They eventually signed him.
