Magic Johnson, that’s who.
“His job will go,” Johnson said on ESPN, where he is a studio analyst. “The Lakers are about championships. That’s what the Lakers are about. If they lose this game, Mike Brown, I bet you, will not be sitting there.”
Johnson sold his 4.5% stake in the Lakers in 2010, but he remains on the payroll as a vice president.
“Mike Brown will not be coaching the Lakers if they lose this game,” Johnson said. “There would be so much pressure on Jim Buss and the Laker organization to get rid of him.”
“”They’re going to run Mike Brown first out of town,” Johnson said. “Then second will be Bynum. Then third will be Gasol.”
Brown, who makes $4.5 million per year, has two guaranteed years remaining on his contract.
