Ironically, I didn’t think Mike Brown got a “fair shake” in Cleveland.
He was fired because the owner thought that was what Lebron wanted and then Lebron left anyway. Ignoring that for a minute what the King said about Brown’s firing in LA makes sense.
“I think it’s unfortunate,” James said Friday after the Heat’s win in Atlanta against the Hawks. “I just don’t think he got a fair shake, honestly. With the shortened season last year, and five games into this year, he didn’t really get a full season.”
“I’ve got a lot to say, but I’m not going to say it right now,” said James, who won two of his three league MVP awards under Brown in Cleveland and also led the Cavaliers to the 2007 NBA Finals. “I wish him the best, but I just think it’s unfortunate and it’s just, you know, how the league is. They can do what they want to do.”
I think Lebron has grown up a lot in these last few years and probably has some regret how things went down in Cleveland specifically with Mike Brown.
We will see what the Lakers next move will be.
