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.

    sucks for Warriors fans. Mike Brown is the definition of a guy who is a great assistant and terrible head coach.

    Mike Brown is still living off the fact that he was a spurs greg pop assistant . His years in Cleveland were a joke . His idea of offense was give Lebron the ball in isolation . Warriors are better off going with Persons, Adelman or even lawrence frank or frank Vogel if made available . mike brown should stay in the media or return as an assistant .

    Hey Warrior fans…

    Don’t be so down on Mike Brown. You have two superb backcourt scorers and all you need now is someone to teach the team how to play a little defense. You don’t have to be a defense first team, but you do have to be able to stop the other guys at the end of games.

    Maybe with guys who won’t abandon the offense to run their own ISO plays he won’t be viewed as an awful offensive coach…

    Guess you can’t make comments that have good points since my last one was never approved . What’s the point of having this if you pick and choose who you allow to comment on your stories . Free speech buddy . You of all people should be for that …

    I’m LeBron James.
    I didn’t say anything stupid today but I’m posting to keep my name out there.

    Terrible. The dude can barely win with the best player of all time. What’s he gonna do with a team that only wants to score. #GoodLuck & see you in the broadcasting booth real soon.
