Kobe Bryant Reacts to the Firing of Head Coach Mike Brown

by November 09, 2012

To the delight of just about everyone, Kobe Bryant has become an avid user of Facebook. Bryant posted his thoughts on the shocking news that the Los Angeles Lakers fired head coach Mike Brown just five games into the season: “Tough day. I’ve seen coaches as well as friends come and go. No matter how many years I’ve been playing, it’s still hard to deal with. I had a good relationship with Mike and I will continue to have one. I wish him and his family nothing but the best. I spoke with him today and thanked him for all of his hard work and sacrifice. As a team, we must focus our energy on tonight’s game. We must block out the weight of today’s news and simply do our jobs to the best of our ability. I’m not sure what direction we are heading in next. All I can do is focus on the here and now. Mamba out.”
