Huge scoop for ESPN LA reporter Ramona Shelburne (pictured). According to her sources, the Los Angeles Lakers couldn’t even wait until the end of their first 2012-13 season homestand to see whether Mike Brown‘s Princeton offense could be salvaged. She says he was fired this morning:
After numerous discussions over the past 48 hours, Lakers management came to a unanimous decision that the team clearly wasn’t heading in the right direction and it was best to fire him now.
This speaks also to the power of a “death stare.” Even though Kobe Bryant laughed off the media’s interpretation of his Utah glare in the direction of Brown, looks like the Buss clan took it very seriously.
