Lakers' Jeanie Buss Addresses Mike Brown Firing In Updated Memoir
The L.A. TIMES runs an excerpt from Lakers Exec VP/Business Operations Jeanie Buss' updated memoir "Laker Girl," which addresses the firing of coach Mike Brown last November. Buss "describes the whirlwind weekend" when her fiance Phil Jackson "talked to the front office about returning as coach." Buss wrote, "Phil called me from the gym after he saw the news on ESPN. 'That's not right,' he said. 'It's not enough time for a coach. I don't care who it is. You don't fire a coach five games in'" (L.A. TIMES, 9/23).
