It seems that ex-Clevland Cavaliers head coach Mike is going to try to lead the Lakers to teh promised land next year. I have one think to say, BAD MOVE… Out of all the coaching choices out there, the Lakers picked probably the worst one. Let me tell you what Mike Brown’s gameplan was when he was coaching the Cavs… give the ball to Lebron and stay out of his way. The Lakers passed on Jeff Van Gundy, Brian Shaw, Rick Adelman and a handful of other coaches. The only person worse would have been Mike Dunleavy. I know what’s gonna happen next year, Kobe is gonna score over 30 a game and piss off the rest of the team. I give Brown till the all-star break before he loses complete control of his team. Ron Artest and co. are gonna run circles around this guy. He’s gonna wish he was back at ESPN studios breaking down film. I guess the days of high powered coaches are done, no more Rileys and Jacksons. A new era has begun with the Lakers, and I see nothing but trouble ahead.
So the NBA has resorted to gimmicks in order to bring in viewers. I’m surprised too, not that they use parlor tricks, but that the NBA season has started already. David Stern is trying something new this season. Soon all NBA head coaches will have to wear mics during games. That means we get to hear all the blaberings of an NBA coach when you just want to peacefully watch a game. As if it wasn’t hard enough listening to Bill Walton and Marv Albert for two straight hours, now you get to hear Mike Dunleavy and Stan Van Gundy too. I can’t wait for Phil Jackson’s brilliant give it to Kobe plays, or Mike Brown asking Lebron what they should do. It gets better, we will also have access to locker rooms during halftime. What has happened with the NBA? This league used to be a major player back in the day, now it’s pulling tricks I would expect from the WNBA. That’s right, there is a WNBA too! Needless to say coaches aren’t happy about this. Scott Skiles thinks it will be a disruption during games and that coaches won’t be themselves. Maybe that’s a good thing. Whatever the protest, it looks like it’s happening, so let’s sit back and watch what happens. I can’t wait for the first F-Bomb to slip through the censors.
