|Mike Brown: Legitimate NBA head coach?|
First coach fired: Mike Brown
Admittedly I never expected the Lakers to fire Brown yesterday, after just 5 games. Last night Lebron James said he didn't think Brown got enough of a chance to prove himself in Los Angeles:
"I just don't think he got a fair shake, honestly. With the shortened season last year, and five games into this year, he didn't really get a full season."
Brown's firing and Lebron's subsequent defense of his former coach are particularly funny to me because just 9 days ago I wrote this:
"when they (L.A.) hired him (Brown) I thought it was a bad idea; the entirety of his resume was 'guy who happened to be the Cavs coach while they had Lebron'"And while I'm going with the "predictions" theme, last month I said BYU should beat Notre Dame. They came very very close. Last Week ND should have lost to Pittsburgh. The Irish are ranked #4 in the country. Boston College is terrible. But it wouldn't surprise if BC won tonight, for all the same reasons I thought BYU was going to.
