How was Brown supposed to win , when Kobe doesn't practice in 4-5 weeks, Nash is out , he has a scrub bench , Howard is still trying to get back up to full steam. The players are learning a new system and each other. He was a marked man ...he didn't have a prayer.
Top this off with reports of Jackson been seen hanging at a Lakers practice recently, DOES he not have something else to do during retirment?
IMO ... Ol Lady Buss , had a plan going from outside influences to hang Brown out to dry,
You don't FIRE a good coach 10 days into the season on the spur of the moment IF you don't already have somebody waiting in the shadows who you KNOW will do a better job. Magic Johnson hated Brown as a coach , said so on TV last year as the Lakers got knocked out.
I think a "MAYBE informal agreementt " was discussed between the Buss 's and Jackson behind the scenes. Pushed my Magic Johnson and others outside the direct team.
It has to be because somebody KNOWs that Jackson WILL come backback... he is the ONLY guy that can do this in this circumstancses and if not , next year he give them another banner.
Brown was axed to let Jackson back in.
