Lakers Satisfied With Brown’s Coaching?
Maybe with the shortened season, (Lakers coach Mike) Brown didn’t have enough time. Maybe a clinical, defense-minded approach isn’t so good at measuring heartbeats. He’s great at drawing Xs and O’s, but does his team feel him giving them out?
Whatever the reason, the sense here is that Lakers officials were satisfied under the circumstances but will be expecting far more next season, the second year of a contract that is fully guaranteed for only three years. They will expect a better offense. They will expect a better player attitude. They will want to know that the Lakers are actually listening to their coach.
