Interesting note in ESPN’s Ric Bucher’s chat Friday, when a Golden State Warriors fan said Brian Shaw and Chuck Person were the front runners to be the next head coach in the Bay Area.
Your sources are half right. Chuck and Brian are serious about getting the job and will be interviewed. But all signs point to Mike Brown being the Warriors next head coach.
Brown if the former Cleveland Brown coach who had a lot of success. But, he also had LeBron James and had to deal with a lot of questions about his offensive sets.
But Brown is a defense first guy, and owner Joe Lacob (who had been a minority Celtics owner) clearly wants to build on a defense-first model.
