Style war in LA
Last week in this space I cautioned against making rash decisions five games into the season. One day later, the Lakers fired their coach. It seems that the Lakersí brass donít read my column.
That said, I can agree with their decision to let Mike Brown go. As I pointed out several times, trying to force that team to run the Princeton offense was ridiculous. The Princeton offense is designed to hide a lack of talent . . . the Lakers overflow with talent. It just didnít fit. Frankly, though, if they were going to fire Brown five games into the season, that means they knew long ago that he was on thin ice . . . they might as well have fired him in the offseason and started the year with the guy they wanted. But oh well.
The more important thing here is just who it is they DID want to coach the team. Everyone thought it would be Phil Jackson. Instead, they tabbed Mike DíAntoni.
