Poll Results: Will Mike Brown Be on Hot Seat With Lakers Loss?
The City of Angels will be in panic if the Lakers end up losing tonight’s game against the Detroit Pistons.
The Lakers have lost their first three regular season games and Dwight Howard has yet to experience what it feels like to be in a winning Lakers locker room. Many people have criticized the Lakers’ play so far and a lot of that blame has been put on head coach Mike Brown. Brown has installed pieces of the Princeton offense to the Lakers playbook this season, and for the most part, he has received some serious backlash for it.
Even though it is very early in the season, there is already discussion as to whether or not the Lakers will fire Brown. The Lakers will play the fourth game of their season tonight, but the match may escalate talk about Brown’s future with the team if the Lakers lose.

By the looks of it, readers of Lakers Nation believe this is a make-or-break game in Mike Brown’s tenure as Lakers head coach. The Pistons are not a very deep team this season and they will likely miss the post-season once again. Even though the Lakers will be without Steve Nash, they still have enough talent to beat the Pistons quite easily.
However, the Lakers fell to the Dirk Nowitzki-less Dallas Mavericks on opening night, so there is a chance that Los Angeles will walk off the court as losers for the fourth consecutive time.
