The Los Angeles Lakers used the offseason to overhaul their roster, but for coach Mike Brown little has changed in his mindset.
"Last year I expected us to compete for a championship and obviously we fell short," Brown said Wednesday on the Mason & Ireland Show. "For me nothing has changed. We're going into this season with the same goal in mind."
With the additions of Steve Nash and Dwight Howard, the Lakers certainly figure to be part of the championship picture. Brown had plenty of good things to say about what Howard brings to the team.
"His athleticism, combined with his power and strength, and his quickness, and energy is phenomenal," Brown said. "I mean defensively here's a guy, that in my opinion, is one of the best pick-and-roll big defenders in the game, to ever play the game. He's one of the best paint protectors to every play the game. You know, just knowing that he's down and around the basket is a deterrent."
If things go wrong with the Lakers. It all falls on Brown. In the end I believe the Lakers fall because of Brown. I think he's an average coach on a team that needs a top tier coach. Brown has major issues with the big egos in the LA. The players on the Lakers with Brown's schemes spell disaster to me, but I'm no expert. It could work if Brown adapts to his players.
