Itâ€™s no secret that Mike Brown doesnâ€™t have complete control over the Lakers. When he was hired many people said Kobe would end up coaching the team and according to Metta World Series its true. Â Read more after the jump.
During the Lakers big win over the Spurs several people in the media noted that it was Kobe taking control of the team during timeouts not Mike Brown.
How did you guys do this (win the game) without Kobe Bryant?â€
Metta World Peace:
â€œWe did it with Kobe. Kobe was actually out there coaching us. Every timeout, Kobe was out there and making adjustments for us. You know Popovich heâ€™s a great coach he made a lot of adjustments, but Kobe was out there with us and we couldnâ€™t do it without him.â€

In Lakers coachesâ€™ huddle early in this timeout, Kobe is doing all the talking. Mike Brown nodding.
