“Los Angeles Lakers coach Mike Brown has been fired after a 1-4 start to the season, a source tells ESPNLosAngeles.com’s Ramona Shelburne.
It is not known yet who will take over for him, but a source indicated that it will either be assistant coach Bernie Bickerstaff or Chuck Person on an interim basis.
Sources had said earlier Friday that his job would be in jeopardy if the team did not perform well on its upcoming six-game homestand.
The Lakers are off to the worst start in the Western Conference despite carrying the league’s largest payroll at just over $100 million, which would trigger an estimated luxury-tax bill at season’s end of nearly $30 million.”
Can someone come watch my boss Alfred Payne and Jay Claxton? I’m worried!!!
