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.

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.
