Last year Brown had gigantic shoes to fill after Phil Jackson, the most accomplished NBA coach of all time, decided to retire. He couldn't do it.
This season, Brown will have all the help he could possibly ask for. His roster is now filled with some of the greatest talent the NBA has ever seen and his coaching staff is now among the most experienced.
He will be leading things for the Lakers again.
Brown will no longer be running his stagnant offense this year as the Princeton Offense will replace his former system. He will also have a full training camp and a month-long preseason to prepare his team. In addition to that, the Lakers will have a full 82-game season to prepare for the playoffs.
That means there are no more excuses for Mike Brown.
If the Lakers fail to win a title with all this talent, skill and experience, the finger pointing will start. Since Brown is the captain of this vessel, he'll be the first person critics point to.
Brown can potentially lose his job or win his second Coach of the Year Award after the season is over. For his sake and the sake of the Lakers and their fans, Brown must get the latter.
