Report: Los Angeles Lakers Fire Former Cavaliers Coach Mike Brown

Christopher Hanewinckel-US PRESSWIRE

The Lakers came into the season with huge expectations. After five games, they sit at 1-4 and have decided to fire their head coach.

The Lakers have fired Mike Brown. The former Cavaliers head coach was hired by Los Angeles and coached them for one season, losing in the Western Conference Semi-Finals against the Thunder. After five games with the Lakers this year, the team found themselves at 1-4 and fired their head coach, USA Today first reported. Mike Brown coached the Cleveland Cavaliers for five seasons and left after the 2009-10 season.

1:09PM EST November 9. 2012 - Mike Brown has been fired by the Los Angeles Lakers, according to his agent Warren Legarie.

The Lakers are off to a 1-4 start and will play Golden State tonight at the Staples Center.

As you know, the Lakers had enormous expections with the additions of Dwight Howard and Steve Nash. They haven't lived up to those expectations yet, but it was FIVE FREAKING GAMES. The Lakers were without Steve Nash due to injury for the majority of those five games. And Dwight Howard clearly isn't healthy yet. And it always takes time to adjust to new teammates. AND IT WAS FIVE FREAKING GAMES. I find this quite amusing and ridiculous. This comes ONE DAY after the Lakers said that Mike Brown was safe and Kobe Bryant gave him a vote of confidence.

In related news, the Cavaliers have the Los Angeles Lakers' first round pick this year so long as it is outside the lottery.
