Memphis has to prove it self in the playoffs. Get past the second round and stay healthy. Until then people wont pay attention.
Brown should have never been hired, so Kudos to the Lakers for acting quick. Alot of teams would sit and wait 25-30 games. The lakers knew they had a favorable schedule and didnt want brown to get a little 4 or 5 game win streak. So they canned him.
I think the Lakers were wise to bring in Mike D as opposed to PJ. Only because of Steve Nash. In the triangle PG are disposable. Nash would be miserable playing in that system. Making the trade to get him pointless. Mike will atleast run an offense the players will like to run. The whole team will get plenty of shots and nash will sorta be a player coach in getting the rest of the guys up to speed.
