The Lakers' decision to fire coach Mike Brown after the team's 1-4 start probably made for great drama.
The question, though, is whether anyone caught the magic moment on camera and, if so, will fans get to see it?
When Time Warner Cable struck its deal to carry the Lakers on its new sports channel SportsNet, it also got the green light to do a weekly show called "Backstage Lakers." Inspired by HBO's critically acclaimed series "Hard Knocks," which follows an NFL team through training camp, "Backstage Lakers" was designed to show fans what goes on behind the scenes with the team in both the locker room and the executive suite. The show airs on Wednesdays at 5 p.m. and recently did an episode exclusively devoted to Brown.
"The team said we will open the doors and will commit to showing that to the fans," Mark Shuken, senior vice president and general manager of Time Warner Sports Regional Networks said in a September interview.
