The Los Angeles Lakers have lost four of their first five games, with the most recent one coming tonight at the hands of the Utah Jazz.
The Lakers played poorly throughout the game and the players seemed very disinterested and disengaged. Fans from all over the country expressed their disappointment with the team over Twitter and a lot of the heat was placed on coach Mike Brown. There was a sense that the Lakers were not buying into what Brown was preaching and one could sense that the players were not fully supporting their coach.
Lakers Nation posted earlier that a source claims Jerry Sloan is interested in joining the Lakers, a coach that almost every fan would like to see run the sidelines.
Shortly after the Lakers game ended, Lakers fans took to Twitter and brought up the Sloan rumor again. The former Utah Jazz coach was a trending topic in the United States on Twitter minutes after the Lakers fell to 1-4.
At this point, Mike Brown is still the coach of the Lakers but a loss like tonight’s may put his job at risk. Even though it’s only a five games into the season, the pink slip may reach Brown very soon.
