After a very disappointing start, the Los Angeles Lakers have fired Mike Brown as head coach. In the off season, the Lakers made some big acquisitions. Steve Nash left Phoenix for LA, and they also picked up big time free agent Dwight Howard. This team should be on the fast track to a championship.

However, they aren't. They have only won a single game so far. At 1-4, the Lakers decided to part ways with Brown, and seek out a long term replacement. Many speculated that Brown's stint as head coach was just a temporary solution.
