Oh no! The Los Angeles Lakers have fired their coach, Mike Brown!
We had just previously mentioned that Kobe Bryant stepped up to defend their coach by telling critics to "shut up."
Well after leading his team of superstar players to a 1 win and 4 loss season start, he's been fired.
The Lakers' general manager was hoping to give Brown some more time but the ownership wanted him gone.
Brown had just signed a four year contract for $18.25 million in May 2011.
He will apparently receive the rest of his salary for the rest of this season and for the 2013-2014 season as well!!
So he got fired which must be awful for him but now he gets to go on a two year vacation where he'll still be getting paid millions of dollars!
We wonder if that was his plan all along… LOLz!
Seriously though, we feel sorry for coach Brown but also hopeful that the Lakers might turn it around now!
