    Brian Kamenetzky

    Nobody in the stands at Staples Center this weekend was chanting "We want Mike" -- and not just because doing so would potentially have sent mixed messages to management. No, the locals wanted Phil Jackson, and thought they were getting him. (In f...

    Brian Kamenetzky

  8. "A big run" for Mike Brown

    Brian Kamenetzky

    Phil Jackson arrived in Los Angeles for the 1999-2000 season having already steered the Bulls to six NBA titles. You'd think heading into his first playoffs with the Lakers six rings would outweigh any skepticism over incense and engender a little bl...

  9. Mike Brown, Gregg Popovich and managing minutes

    Brian Kamenetzky

    Phil Jackson used to reference Red Holzman all the time, and Mike Brown does the same with San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich, whose staff he served on from 2000-2003 and who is clearly a major influence. Still, if there's one place Brown hasn't...
