Yeah, he was responsible for a lot of that difference.
I don't have a problem with Brown, per se. I am curious about what sort of offense and defense he would want to run without a player of James' ability. I seriously have no idea what his philosophies would be.I don't think Mike Brown is a top-five coach by any means, but to discount a guy because he had a star player is ludicrous ... especially when supporting a guy who hasn't coached a full NBA season.
I like Vogel and Brown, and can understand arguments for both.
