Brown Likes Lakers’ Statement of Support
The last 24 hours have remained anything but magic. Aside from preparing the Lakers for their Game 7 on Saturday night against the Denver Nuggets, Lakers Coach Mike Brown also had to handle Magic Johnson suggesting he should be fired if the Lakers fall in the first round.
It’s one thing for a columnist to call for that. It’s quite another for a Laker legend who still retains a vice president’s role with the organization. But he at least has the comfort to know that the front office made it clear in a statement that they remain “fully committed to and supportive of Mike Brown as head coach of the Lakers.”
“Anytime anybody gives you support, you like it,” Brown said before the Game 7. “But it wasn’t necessary. There’s so many people out there that are going to say things or stuff like that. To try to fight that every time, I know, for me, is impossible for me to do.”
