In what has been a whirlwind 24-hours for the Lakers (and their fans), an official statement has been issued from the team regarding the hiring of Mike Brown (courtesy of Lakers.com):

“In response to rampant speculation and reports about our head coaching position and Mike Brown, we’ve met with Mike and are very impressed with him. In addition, we have an outline for an agreement in place and hope to sign a contract within the next few days.”

From all of us here at Laker Nation, we would like to say: Welcome to the Mike Brown Era…

    Idk what most people are thinking…Mike Brown is actually a good coach…he was very limited in Cleveland because LBJ was pampered and had to have it his way…so Brown really didn’t have a say on how much he can do with Lebron…give the guy a chance…who knows…

      Mike brown has the 5th highest winning percentage in league history, we all know defense wins championships and he’s a defensive guy. People talk about him not bringing excitement  but most fast breaks and dunks come from good defense and creating turnovers,  the offense will be there cause last I checked we still have a scoring legend on the team… so give this dude a chance I bet he’ll do really well…

    It’s reported that many Lakers fans are not happy with the selection. If this is true, Kobrick should fire him and replace him with another recycled retread. All the coaches in the David Stern NBA are recycled retreads.
