Unless you live in a cave somewhere, you should know by now that Mike Brown no longer coaches the LA Lakers. Brown – who was gracious in his exit from Tinseltown – will be temporarily replaced by the immortal Bernie Bickerstaff. From the team website: “Assistant Coach Bernie Bickerstaff will take over as interim head coach for tonight’s game against the Golden State Warriors. A search for a new head coach will begin immediately. ‘This was a difficult and painful decision to make,’ said GM Mitch Kupchak. ‘Mike was very hard-working and dedicated, but we felt it was in the best interest of the team to make a change at this time. We appreciate Mike’s efforts and contributions and wish him and his family the best of luck.’”
