In the new world of social media public pressure can make organizations make moves that they normally wouldn’t make. 10 years ago if the Lakers got off to a 1-4 start, there would be concerned but not full-blown panic.
Now, with so many media outlets, blogs, fans and social media the heat is on Mike Brown. Fairly or not, if things don’t change quickly he will be the sacrificial lamb.
I think 4-2 would settle people down a bit, but if he goes 1-5 or 0-6, then the Lakers might not have a choice but to bring someone else in.
The play Golden State tonight, so let the Mike Brown watch begin.
