Mike Brown Could Soon Be The Lakers' Head Coach :-(

When the rumors about Mike Brown surfaced late last week, I didn't get too worked up about them. Mostly because on the Lakers' shortlist were at least couple obviously more qualified candidates, and an organization as smart as the Lakers wouldn't really pass on Rick Adelman and Brian Shaw to hire Mike Brown. Right?

Back me up on this, Marc Spears and Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports:

The Los Angeles Lakers are engaged in serious discussions with Mike Brown about the ex-Cleveland Cavaliers coach becoming the franchise's next coach, league sources told Yahoo! Sports on Tuesday night.

The Lakers are focused on talks with Brown, who was fired in 2010 after five seasons in Cleveland, where he went 272-138.

Los Angeles had considered longtime assistant Brian Shaw, but the focus is now on Brown. There could be an agreement in place within the next 24-48 hours, sources say, but nothing has been finalized.

The two sides are working out issues that could be dealbreakers and cause the Lakers to go to another candidate, sources said, but there's clearly momentum toward Brown becoming the next head coach.

Oh. I... see.

If you need me, I'll be over here putting my fist through various hard surfaces.
