With the firing of Mike Brown as Lakers coach this morning, the reaction in high school basketball will be -- what does do to the future of his son, Elijah Brown at Mater Dei?
Mater Dei coach Gary McKnight expects Brown, a very good 6-foot-3 senior guard for the Monarchs, will be on the team all season.
"I can't speak for the family," McKnight said. "But I would not think that Elijah will move someplace else during his senior year."
From what I have seen, Elijah Brown likes Mater Dei, the basketball program and his teammates.
Mater Dei has three players with famous sports dads -- Elijah Brown; Michael Cage Jr., son of the former Clipper who played 16 NBA seasons; and Jordan Strawberry, son of former Mets and Dodgers outfielder Darryl Strawberry.
