Lakers News: Mitch Kupchak Not Overreacting to Slow Start

The Los Angeles Lakers are currently 1-4 and their slow start has caused chaos throughout the city. The team is not playing well and there are a lot of questions about whether or not they can figure it out.

Coach Mike Brown has taken a lot of the blame for the disappointing start, and his future with the Lakers may be in doubt. The Lakers have put together the most talented team in the NBA and with all that star power, there should be no reason for the team to lose to opponents like the Utah Jazz or a Nowitzki-less Mavericks.

However, general manager Mitch Kupchak is not panicking over the 1-4 record and he told the Los Angeles Times that the team is taking it one game at a time.

“Expectations are high, there’s no doubt. The city is impatient,” Kupchak said Thursday in a phone interview with The Times. “At what point do you lose patience? Is it 1-15? Is it a higher number? A lesser number? I don’t know right now. But we have a game Friday night and we’re going to win it and try to build off that.”

Rumors surfaced before the Lakers game against the Jazz that legendary coach Jerry Sloan was interested in coming to Los Angeles, and fans took to Twitter shortly after the loss hoping that Sloan take Brown’s place.

There is no question that the Lakers are performing well below expectations, and if things do not get better within the next month, there is a chance there that Kupchak makes some more changes.
