Magic Johnson: "Mike Brown will be fired" If The Lakers Lose Game 7

Last night during the Clippers and Grizzlies pregame show on ESPN, Magic Johnson made a bold statement about the future of the Lakers. The Lakers find themselves facing a game 7 in the first round of the playoffs. This is cause for concern considering the Lakers once had a 3-1 series lead.

 Magic Johnson believes if the Lakers lose tonight then heads will roll this off-season. The first one to go, in his eyes, will be first year coach Mike Brown.
"They're going to run Mike Brown first out of town," Johnson said on ESPN Friday. "Then second will be [Andrew] Bynum. Then third will be [Pau] Gasol."
"His job will go," Johnson said. "The Lakers are about championships. That's what the Lakers are about. if they lose this game, Mike Brown, I bet you, will not be sitting there."
 "Mike Brown will not be coaching the Lakers if they lose this game," Johnson said. "There would be so much pressure on Jim Buss and the Laker organization to get rid of him."
Johnson was very adamant that he feels there is no way Mike Brown will be back if the Lakers get put out in the first round. Do you feel the same way? Do you see it differently? Comment below and let us know.
