Mike Brown's Job Not On The Line In Game 7, According To Report

During ESPN's broadcast of the Clippers vs. Grizzlies Game 6 on Friday, Magic Johnson predicted Lakers head coach Mike Brown would be fired if his team lost Game 7 of their series against the Nuggets. Today, that prediction was refuted by a "source with knowledge of the Lakers' thinking." Via Dave McMenamin.

Here is part of what Johnson originally said about Brown's job security. Via the Los Angeles Times.

"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."

Saturday's Game 7 is scheduled to tip off at 10:30 p.m. ET and will be broadcast on TNT.
