Brown Backtracks, OK with Shot Selection
On second glance, Los Angeles Lakers coach Mike Brown said that it wasn’t poor shot selection from Kobe Bryant or anyone else that cost the Lakers in their epic collapse against the Washington Wizards on Wednesday night.
“I thought we had three or four guys that took bad shots that led to run outs and we didn’t,” Brown said after the team’s Friday morning shootaround in Minneapolis. “I thought we took great shots. We missed shots in the second half, but we took great shots.”
So his postgame criticism of Bryant’s 9-for-31 shooting performance was off-base?
“I thought Kobe, as well as three other guys, I said to all of those guys in the film session: ‘I was wrong, your shot selection was fine,’” Brown said.
