Mike Brown had a very eventful Monday, to say the least.
Brown was officially named the new head coach of the Sacramento Kings on Monday. Just hours later, he learned he would be stepping in as acting coach of the Golden State Warriors after Steve Kerr tested positive for COVID-19. Brown has coached the Warriors in the playoffs before, having gone a perfect 13-0 in the 2017 season while Kerr was dealing with back problems.
Brown’s status also prompted plenty of jokes. Plenty of people noted Brown’s dual status as coach of the Warriors and Kings. Others used it as an opportunity to take a jab at the Kings, who have not reached the playoffs since 2006.
Mike Brown is simultaneously the head coach of both the Warriors and the Kings. https://t.co/6MVk8nnpEQ

Can Kings claim their playoff drought has ended now? https://t.co/lMwlr6xb8R

Does that make Mike Brown the first Kings coach to coach a playoff game since Rick Adelman in 2006? https://t.co/X1tZnBXTGi

if Mike Brown wins tonight's game, does that count as a Kings playoff win? People need to know!

No, a Brown win would not count for the Kings. They’d probably enjoy it all the same, though. This is an organization that really has not had any fun for the last 15 years. At least they could hold on to this.
