He's never experienced coaching 3 superstars. Will he be able to cope with Dwight, Nash, and Kobe? Really, I think how competent he will be handling them will determine our title run.

Nash won't be an issue.

Kobe/Dwight will be the challenge if any sort of friction occurs.

And to answer your question... He has no choice but to handle this team. If he doesn't, there will be a new coach the following season.

Doesn't have to worry about either Nash or Kobe. At this point in their careers, they're not about to go mutiny on the head coach. I expect them along with Gasol being more than enough to keep Howard in check. Don't see too many problems, we have a ton of high character guys on the team next season.

The Lakers will be fine. Nash, Kobe, Metta, Pau, Jamison, Blake are veterans. They know what will they do in order to win a ring. Also, they will keep the young players egos in check.

Nash and Kobe are co-coaches on this team.

This. I don't expect any chemistry issues. If Mike Brown can run the defense, the rest will play out...

It will be fine. Dwight just needed to get out of orlando. Too much bad stuff going on with horrible gm's and terrible FO work. I think when people look back at this whole thing they will relize it was the magic who ruined the relationship between them and dwight not dwight.

I don't think Mike Brown needs to coach this team. It's like the situation in Barcelona. Team will play what they know.

Not really worried. Seeing how he helped a team with no bench or offensive scheme to be the 4th best team in the league I think he'll be fine with the lineup and bench upgrade he's gotten along with FULL practice time.

Really I think a big thing that will determine if we will be really good is if antawn ends up being a very good 6th man. I mena our starting squad is perfect really. There are almost no weakness's in it but our bench is still not a for sure thing. i mean it will definatly be better. but if our bench can be dominate then we are set as a team. Mike brown couldnt even [expletive] that up.

Might sound crazy, but I'm starting to miss Fish right now as a locker room presence. Hopefully Nash can fill that void a little.

There's no excuse to fail this season. He's got probably the greatest Laker team assembled in the last 15 years. He can and should handle this team.

Arguably the greatest franchise ever

Yes he can. He handled last yrs team and the record was fine during regular season. BUt you cant make guys give full effort on the court = thats up to the players involved. Now we got some better players & guys who are not lazy & over confident. Brown needs to focus solely on rotations making sure to limit starters mins as much as possible to get the full value out of each player on roster.

There's been lots of controversies regarding MB lately soo I thought I would bring this thread back up. I'm serious, if there's anything that holds us back from a championship it's Mike Brown. HES SO SENSELESS AND INCOMPETENT with rotations, minutes, practice, etc. etc.
