LeBron James thinks the Lakers moved to fast firing Mike Brown

LeBron James played for Lakers ex-coach Mike Brown for five years in Cleveland. Count King James among those that feel like the Lakers reacted to quickly with the firing of Brown.

“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.”

Yeah, I don’t have a comment on that.
