Should the Lakers Bring Back Shannon Brown?

For the latest two championship runs, the Los Angeles Lakers relied on Shannon Brown to back-up star shooting guard Kobe Bryant. Brown was not a well-known player before coming to Los Angeles, but his time with the Lakers greatly increased his NBA stock. Brown came to the team as a high-flyer, but in recent years he has greatly improved his overall skills.

Brown quickly excited fans and Los Angeles was willing to cheer on the former Michigan State Spartan. The team quickly found Brown’s leaping ability a great asset and in addition to running several ally-oop plays, the market department launched a “Let Shannon Dunk” campaign.  As a result, Brown was able to participate in the dunk contest, and although he did not win, he made Lakers fans proud by representing the team.

In addition to all his dunking accolades, Brown is coming off a career season in terms or scoring. Although Brown did not perform particularly well in the post-season, his 8.7 regular season points per game average was a new career high.

Brown is no longer just a scorer, but also a great shooter and passer. However, despite the fact that Brown has won two titles in L.A. and that the franchise has helped him become a better player, his stint with the Lakers could be coming to an end.

Before the whole lockout situation, Brown opted out of his contract with the Lakers and became a free agent. It had been reported that the team reached out to Brown’s representative, and it is time now for the front office to decide whether or not to go after Brown.
