Winners and Losers from Los Angeles Lakers' Firing of Mike Brown

Ladies and gentlemen, the Mike Brown Era is officially over.

The Los Angeles Lakers made the call to sever ties with the embattled coach after a 95-86 loss to the Utah Jazz that dropped the team to 1-4 on the 2012-13 NBA season. 

The move—sudden, but not entirely unexpected—leaves the Lakers searching for answers (and coaches) and scrambling to right the ship. Six new players, a brand-new staff of assistants and a new offensive system yielded early results far short of the astronomical expectations set for a team featuring Kobe Bryant, Dwight Howard, Pau Gasol and Steve Nash.

(Even though Howard still isn't 100 percent and Nash has been out since the second game with a fractured fibula, but I digress.)

So where do the Lakers go from here? Who benefits from Brown's ouster and who comes out on the short end of it all?
