Fired Lakers Coach Mike Brown Hits Up Chick-fil-A After Getting The Boot
Maybe the only thing ousted Los Angeles Lakers coach Mike Brown gave a cluck about after getting fired from the team is getting his hands on a tasty fried chicken sandwich.
A very jovial and obliging Brown was spotted at a Costa Mesa Chick-fil-A this morning, not long after he got word he was out as the head coach for the not-so-successful Lakers.
Brown took the time to pose for photos and talk to fans--but not about the firing. A photo sent to TMZ shows that Brown did take a call while at the controversial fast food restaurant from sports writer Jim Hill.
We're not sure if Brown's Chick-fil-A meal tasted more like hate, sour grapes, or just good old chicken. In his official statement, Brown was upbeat and respectful about his time with the team:
“I have great respect for the Buss family and the Lakers’ storied tradition and I thank them for the opportunity they afforded me. I have a deep appreciation for the coaches and players that I worked with this past year and I wish the organization nothing but success as they move forward.”
