    Bobcats head coach Larry Brown steps down | NBA.com

    I wonder if Mike Illich thinks he is a bad person....:stirthepot:

    LB is 70 years old....does he want to mess with what we have in Motown?? 7 years ago, we had a team that was on the brink of a title...this years team is on the brink of ...fill in the blank..

    he may do better than the Clueless one though...

    We may not need to hire him. Listen to Keith Langlois:

    Starting Bengo and making Rip come off the bench might make us, not only a PO team, but a contender.

    this is good news for my fantasy team; maybe the new coach realizes that Tyrus Thomas is better than Nazr Mohammed, Dominic Mc Guire and Kwame Brown and gives him more than 20 minutes per game

    He's not a title chaser. He's a masochist.

    When you think of it Langlios makes a good point. We are only 14 games behind Boston at this point and sitting pretty at number 11 in the playoff standings. If a lot of important players for the other teams get hurt we could be right in the chase.

    C'mon guys, we can just hire LB, demote Kuester to assistant and also go find Mike Woodson to be another assistant, and bring Lindsay and Sheed out of the old folks home. That is an INSTANT championship. It will be like old times. Hell, other teams won't even show up to the gym....

    The current Pistons are actually the type of team that he is used to coaching. He always loved the difficult projects. Maybe he just did not feel comfortable enough with a ready made team back in 04 and thus did not want to stick around.

    I don't know, even that guy does not know who he will be working for in the next couple of months.

    LB right now would be fantastic. He would force Stuckey to play more like a PG, make CV go inside more, help Monroe, figure out how to get Gordon back on track, solve any issues with Rip/Tay.

    Larry Brown would be fantastic for this team. Any time you have a coach who thinks it's a good idea to take DJ Augustin over Brook Lopez (while a majority of the organization disagrees) simply because he doesn't like Raymond Felton, is a coach you can't pass up.

    With LB this team would still be bad. He has no magic wand.

    I agree. Bringing in LB would turn a train wreck into a wreckier train wreck.

    no he has no magic wand, but he holds players accountable and actually teaches individual players the game and how to get better. He instills the basics and fundamentals of basketball at the roots and allows the players natural ability to prosper. I thought he was a hell of a coach and he got every drop of talent out of each player while he was here

    I agree that he was 6 years ago. But a 70 year old coach with a 2 year shelf life won't turn this team around.

    I am yet to see him actually apply any of the principles he learned from the LB school of coaching. Maybe only the bad ones like how to argue with players or bench them. He must have been day dreaming through the parts on how to develop players and in game adjustments.
