5 Coaches Who Could Do a Better Job with L.A. Lakers Than Mike Brown

Los Angeles Lakers head coach Mike Brown was pleased as punch (via LA Times) upon learning the organization was able to acquire Dwight Howard without so much as losing Pau Gasol in the process.

As he should be. His job just got a lot easier on account of adding a dominant defender to a lineup that already boasted Gasol, Kobe Bryant, Steve Nash and a halfway decent supporting cast.

His job also just got a lot harder.

Yes, there are tools at his disposal. But there will also be expectations at every turn. If he thought a second-round ouster to the Oklahoma City Thunder would ruffle some Purple and Gold feathers, just imagine what life would be like in the event he produces anything less than an immediate championship.

Jack Nicholson might become a Clippers fan.

The criticism directed Brown's way hasn't been especially fair, nor will it be. It almost never is with head coaches.

But, it's also fair to say that Brown isn't the game's best coach. More importantly, he may not be the best coach for these Lakers. That may say more about the roster than it does about Brown, but it takes two to tango in this game.

Here are five coaches who just might be a better fit for this chapter of LA's dynasty.
