    Mike Brown Fired: 2 Reasons Why He Was Fired According To Lakers' GM Mitch Kupchack

    After an ugly 1-4 start this Season, the Los Angeles Lakers have relieved Mike Brown of head coaching duties.

    Oh, man! That was quick. We're expecting this to happen in the first week of December.

    "Two main reasons for Brown's dismissal were won-loss record and lack of improvement from game to game", said Mitch Kupchack, the GM of the Lakers.

    There are still no definite replacements for Brown. For the mean time, Bernie Bickerstaff the current assistant Coach of the Lakers will be acting as the interim head coach.

    There are rumors saying that the Lakers are eyeing Jerry Sloan and Mike D'antoni as the possible replacements of Brown.

    "I have great respect for the Buss family and the Lakers' storied tradition and I thank them for the opportunity they afforded me. I have a deep appreciation for the coaches and players that I worked with this past year and I wish the organization nothing but success as they move forward", Brown said after he heard the news.

    The news elicited remarkable reactions coming from different NBA Personalities.
    “The most ridiculous firing in the history of the NBA.”- Stan Van Gundy.

    “I just hope it was a huge mistake and they continue to make them.”- Mark Cuban

    “He beat my record…5 games into a season. That’s hard to believe. I feel for Mike."-
    Doc Rivers.

    “A little premature. … It was a pretty quick trigger on a good basketball coach.”-
    Avery Johnson.

    LaMarcus Aldridge of the Portland Trailblazers added a twist to the story. He shared that he heard a news saying the Kobe was not happy with Brown.

    “I don’t know what to say — if Kobe isn’t happy, then that’s tough,” Aldridge said. “I have been getting word that he wasn’t happy with how things were going, and if he’s not happy, then your chances there are pretty slim — as we saw with Shaq. … Everybody talks around the league, and there was talk that he wasn’t happy,“ according to Aldridge.
