From a legal point, I believe Larry is in the right. The Knicks knew what they were getting (a hot ho, who they believed would be faithful for them for at least a year or two), but LB wanted it his way, right away. I'm not a lawyer, but I have a hard time believing the Knicks are going to get out of this contract. But, I think this sets a precedent for future coaches. Before, when coaches were paid nothing compared to players, who cared, but now with these huge salaries, teams are going to start to realize that coaches can be just as petulant and cancerous, in spite of their talents, as players can be. And teams are going to want to protect themselves. Who's in charge in today's NBA? Coaches or Presidents? Riley was a President that dumped his coach and took over, Joe D goes through coaches like Ben through FT coaches.
