Lakers News: Pau Gasol Reacts to Mike Brown’s Firing

The Los Angeles Lakers have parted ways with coach Mike Brown, and the search for a new head man had begun.

The Lakers players have struggled adjusting to Brown’s style of coaching and their 1-4 record speaks to that claim. Los Angeles looks lethargic on both ends of the court and the players have not been able to figure out the new offensive system.

Pau Gasol is looking to win his third championship with the Lakers this season, but he will have to do it without coach Mike Brown. Gasol spoke to Mark Medina about the firing of Brown, and as always, he was very professional and compassionate when answering the question.

There’s nothing we could as players except go out and perform and do our best to turn this around. I feel bad for Mike. There’s been a lot going on regardless. This is my third time with the coach being fired when I was on a team. It’s not pleasant to go through. You feel bad for the coach and his family and the position he’s in.

Many names have surfaced as possible coaching replacements, including Phil Jackson, Jerry Sloan and Mike D’Antoni. Gasol won two championships under Phil Jackson and he fit perfectly in the famous Triangle offense. Gasol and the Lakers have a game to play tonight against the Golden State Warriors, so it will be interesting to see how he and his teammates play after the news.
