all of hte talk blaming brown's offensive schemes on the laker's lack of scoring (and there's a LOT of it) seems to me to overlook one issue: why do they roll like nobody's business in one half and then fall apart in the other? This happens repeatedly. I don't think it's all brown's fault (though certainly some of it probably is). i think they have a personality issue -- they get up on a team and then they relax and any trace of offensive (or defensive for htat matter) discipline goes out the window. you can't really blame htis on brown either, since it has been a hallmark of the team for years ... maybe since phil came on. that said, somehow, despite all of these mid-season soap operas, they have won 5 championships.
