[Daily News] Knicks Buying Out Larry?
Gar~den chairman James Dolan apparently has started the process of ending Larry Brown's dream job after one season.
According to sources, Dolan, upset over Brown's record and the coach's public criticism of his players, is considering buying out the final four years of Brown's contract, worth at least $40 million.
The Knicks declined to comment, and would neither confirm nor deny one published report that already is naming Knicks president Isiah Thomas as Brown's successor. Brown has indicated that he will not resign, but if Thomas takes over, the Knicks would avoid having to pay another coach upwards of $5 million annually.
Thomas, who coached the Pacers from 2000-2003 but never got them out of the first round of the playoffs, is said to be amenable to coaching the Knicks, one source told the Daily News.
Knicks brass has not met with Brown since the end of the 23-59 season, according to sources, perhaps another indication of Dolan's dissatisfaction with the Hall of Fame coach. According to a team official, Brown has requested a meeting with Dolan but Thomas has told Brown there is no reason for him to meet with the club's owner.

HA HA HA ... I can use good laugh !!!
You and just a few too many others like you are among the dumbest bunch of bastards on the planet out there posing as "Knick fans". (Posers being the key word here). HEY !! ... I'm ALL for seeing the Isiah Thomas Three Ring Circus come to town. BRING IT THE 'F' ON. In this final "we're clueless with nothing left we can do" Thomas inspired sack of **** showdown, He will finally have no one left to hide behind and no one else to blame. This is put up or shut up time. I CAN HARDLY WAIT !! LOL. Someone please get me a bag of popcorn!! This would truly be THE Greatest Show on Earth at the Garden next year fo shizl my nizels! True “Knick fans” (something entirely different then you bunch of sorry ass Isiah Thomas nutsack lickers) can only hope that when he does (and he will) fall flat on his face in plain public sight, that maybe just maybe Dolan will extract his head from Thomas’ crotch as well and run his sorry ass out of town like he should have done a LONG LONG time ago, like before he hired him. Actually, I suspect that Dolan is not giving Thomas an ultimatum here, nor should he, in making him coach this 'dream team’ of his making. Dolan can only hope that this prideful remorseless ******* will fail so miserably that he'll resign so Dolan can get rid him while thinking he’ll save some face, which is just not possible at this stage of the game. The only thing we can ask of Thomas then is that he'll take the rest of you suck up retards with him back under the rock that you all live under.
