Photo: Mike Brown hits up local Chick-fil-A hours after being fired
How does one cope with the fact that he has just been fired from his head coaching job? By grabbing a chicken sandwich at the local Chick-fil-A, of course.
Seen here is Mike Brown just a few hours after news broke that he had been fired as head coach of the Los Angeles Lakers. He was gracious enough to take time out of his day to pose with an eager fan yet made no mention of the firing, according to sources. TMZ also pointed out the fact that Brown put his phone conversation with LA sports writer Jim Hill on hold in order to snap the now infamous photo. I wonder what was being said during that convo?
It seems as if Brown is taking the news pretty well though. He released the following statement after getting word of his dismissal, "I have great respect for the Buss family and the Lakers’ storied tradition and I thank them for the opportunity they afforded me."
The Lakers are off to a disappointing 1-4 start, which has drawn the ire of many discontent fans of the team. Today's move was certainly a surprising one with the intent of turning things around. If things continue to go awry, Brown can no longer bear the blame for it.
