Brown Wants to Bring Passion to Lakers?
(Los Angeles Lakers coach Mike) Brown wants to build a cooperative community in Lakerland where no one is keeping track of who gives what to whom, yet everyone is accountable. At the heart of that is consistent effort, and although Brown is too nice to cast the aspersions, it’s abundantly clear that he intends to bring a passion back to the Lakers’ play that was sorely lacking in a disappointing last season under Phil Jackson.
“I don’t feel like I’m the smartest guy out there,” Brown said. “I feel like I’m a pretty good people-person. I feel like I have common sense, at least. And I do believe that I work hard. To me, that’s where my advantage is going to be, if there is one.”
