Theory of Throwing Game 5 Amuses Brown
Mike Brown was using his big smile to denounce a popular theory that’s going around.
It seems ridiculous, the prospect of the Lakers throwing Game 5 on Tuesday to push the series to six games so Metta World Peace could play in Game 1 against Oklahoma City in Western Conference playoffs.
A smile, followed by laughing.
“I thought it was funny,” Brown said before Tuesday’s game.
Actually, Brown would rather get through the series quickly, even though that would mean Metta World Peace has to sit out the first game – serving the final of the seven-game suspension – of the next series.
