I am. Diehard Canuck loyalist here. LA has taken Vancouver's mojo in hockey and now soccer. At least Vancouver has poached some of LA's B-movie production.

Any team that has Jay DeMerit is doomed to fail.

If only the Grizzlies were still in Vancouver, it would've been three times in one calendar year that LA eliminated Vancouver in the first round!

No coincidence that his name is "demerit".

n.
1.
a. A quality or characteristic deserving of blame or censure; a fault.
b. Absence of merit.

2. A mark made against one's record for a fault or for misconduct.

Looks like the Angels trade Dan Haren to the Cubs for Carlos Marmol

Hard thrower, accuracy is a concern as well as mental toughness. Good middle reliever.

I'd rather Dustin Brown coached the Lakers before Mike Brown.

Angels-Cubs trade called off.

What in god's name is wrong with the Lakers? 0-3 now, just lost to the Clippers by 10.

The Lakers are embarrassing. Highest payroll with the worst bench in the league.

Brown will be fired long before we get to that point. It took the Heat a while for their super team to glue together but I don't see this happening under this coach. I think if the Lakers are anywhere near .500 around Christmas time he's a goner with Jerry Sloan to take his spot.

At least the games on the first four nights have been good all around the league, lots of young guys exploding and showing how good they really are, because I expect this is all big league pro sports fans will have this winter and spring.

Clippers looked awesome. Loving the bench play. Barnes, Odom, Crawford, Bledsoe...it's a hell of a 2nd unit.

Late reply, but...

Del Harris - .659 winning percentage as a Laker coach. Laker fans sure are spoiled!

Mike Brown has just been fired.

On a serious note, the team just didn't respond to Brown this season. They said all the right things to the press, but clearly they were not motivated to play DEFENSE.

Everyone is pointing to the offense, but you aren't going to beat anyone (including teams like Detroit, even though somehow they did), if you don't get down the floor after a missed shot.

The body language of the players told the whole story.

Unfortunately, you can't fire the players. You have to fire the coach.

We all saw what it did for the Kings last season. Let's see if this sets a fire under the players' collective *****.

LOL, this is all over the local news. It's the first headline on KTLA news at 1. Did the firing of Terry Murray even get 10% of the attention that the Mike Brown firing is getting now?

I meant in terms of having a good team and doing nothing with it. Much like Harris, I never expecting the Lakers to do anything in the playoffs with Brown leading the way. Similar situation with Terry Murray behind the Kings bench, they were going to go nowhere had he remained coach.
