@WojYahooNBA
As Lakers ownership has been considering firing of Brown, Mike D'Antoni has been a prominent name discussed as replacement, sources tell Y!

If it's D'Antoni we need to hire a defensive assistant.

Our defense was terrible with Mike Brown who's supposed to be a defensive minded coach.

I don't want to see our D with D'Antoni.

Unless the team stopped playing hard under Mike Brown.

It needed to happen. Hopefully they show the same willingness to make big roster moves during the season if need be.

Ok here is a crazy speculation (don't bite me head off!)

Lakers management won't jump into decisions out of panic, they are an established veteran organization. They won't do it without a solid backup plan.

Maybe, just maybe, Jim spoke to his sister and has a backplan??

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 one of assistant coaches Bernie Bickerstaff or Chuck Person will take over on an interim basis.

Earlier Friday, sources had told ESPN.com's Marc Stein that the team was using its upcoming six-game homestand to evaluate Brown, but after numerous discussion over the past 48 hours, Lakers management came to a unanimous decision that the team wasn't heading in the right direction.

The Lakers have had a healthy Steve Nash in the lineup for only 1½ of their five games so far thanks to a leg injury, while fellow newcomer Dwight Howard has acknowledged that he's still recovering from the back surgery that brought a premature end to his 2011-12 campaign and knocked him out of the London Olympics. Kobe Bryant has also been playing through a foot ailment.
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.

The team has also been trying to institute a form of the Princeton offense, a system that relies on reads and ball sharing in order to take some offensive load off Bryant. The results have been mixed so far.

Information from ESPN.com's Marc Stein was used in this report.
