Brought to you by the guys at www. I figure by now there are a number of Lakers fans trying to figure out where this Shannon Brown kid came from. You know, the guy who seemingly has taken over the first-guard-off-the-bench role. Brown came over as more of a throw-in for Vladimir Radmonovic. Even I expected No. So far, looks like I was wrong. Brown is the type of big point guard Phil Jackson loves. The triangle does not require a true point guard, and the Lakers have plenty of versatile players who can bring the ball up, which means Brown can focus on the things he is good at. In a three-game stretch vs. Sacramento , Denver , and Portland , he hit from the field, including from three.
Brown's play this season has been praised by opposing coaches including Colquitt County's Rush Propst. The senior linebacker made another big hit when he sacked Fitzgerald quarterback Kaleb Nobles in the Hornets big win Friday. The speedy Brown is also a weapon on offense and has committed to play for number one Alabama. His football career last year took a detour with what Shannon said were poor choices he made. Shannon Brown said. Football was taken away from me because I was making foolish decisions. Now I am back on the right track. Going for nothing but it all. All rights reserved. Skip to content.
