    Default My opinion Larry Brown to coach KNicks

    Look, i know from b4 i've said that Larry wouldn't coach the knicks but i'm almost certain now that he will, and quite frankly i've very happy about it, Herb's not the answer, i think with a coach like Larry the knicks will go far into the playoffs, i'd prefer Phil Jackson but Larry will do even though is voice is extremely anoying, lol too bad for the players

    Better shot at Larry coaching the kNIcks, He was apparently fired by the pistons and their negotiating a pay out not a buy out and Larrys agent was asked if Larry would coach the knicks and he said that maybe but there hasn't been an offer yet

    I thought I heard from Stephen A that Isiah offered Brown a 5 year contract worth 12-14mill a year.

    Larry as the head coach...I would take it to the bank...maybe Herb as an assistant...can take over if Larry's health is bad...
    Also...Larry gets the Knicks to the second round

    expect a boost in the roster if we get Larry Brown. a new starting power forward (Walker is my guess). trades, waives things will happen after signing Brown...

    im excited about Brown BUT i was also excited about a run and gun team, and i know thats now what well get with Brown. i see a lot of Crawford and Q-Rich getting yelled at for lack of D. hope Larrys health can take it!

    now that is all if he takes the job...i have a feeling he mite actually serve as a consultant for the knicks this summer and the season BUT will not coach until the 06-07 season. We could find out as early as tomorrow if Herb is resigned for this season and the situation on Larry.

    Larry will be with the Knicks and Herb will stay on as top assistant.

    Jamal, Q AND Steph will be pressured to defend (hopefully at least one of them will step it up if not all). Jamal's trade probability has risen.

    Rookies will get less time if they're not ready (Nate and Lee ARE ready because they are extreme hustle guys, while Frye and Butler are screwed). Ariza will fit in nicely with Larry's game.

    Hopefully, Larry stops Isiah from getting Walker and can help him bring the missing pieces using Jamal, Sweets, TT (dejavu for him) and Penny as bait.

    I'd be really happy if Larry comes aboard.

    The reason why Brown usually has beef with his PG's are because he expects so much from that position. He was a Pg himself, so he is especially hard on anyone who plays for him at that position. I don't think that will be a problem though. Every point guard that has played for him have had breakout years under him. Steph will take his game to another level if he listens...

    my say is he will help this team. he will make the younger players better. he will get us about 4 or 5 more wins then we should have. but the knicks will not be 60 and 22 or whatever. a coach is a coach but unless he’s going out there everyday and playing the game the way he wants his players to play they are going to have to show this veteran coach that him coming to the knicks is not just his dream coming true it’s a chance to bring a championship back to the garden, back to New York.

    I think if LB is made coach this season, the knicks will pass the 500 mark.
    The biggest adjustment will be for Steph, who will have to learn his system inside out. But Marbury is a knick to the heart and I am sure he will make the necessary sacrifices to make things work. If not, LB can always move him to SG as he did with AI back in Philly.
    As far as rumors going around that Brown and Marbury will have issues - all I can say is that if LB put up with AI for SIX years - trust me, working with Marbury will not be a problem.

    I think the younger players will be given their fair shot as well. Once you play hard and play LB's way - ur gonna get minutes. Just look at Tayshaun Prince. LB loves his attitude, and I think because of that, he'll like Ariza too.
    As far as Milicic - I've seen him play a few summer games and he's nothing special and having Rasheed Wallace starting and McDyess as the backup - there's no way he was getting to break into that rotation.

    LB will make the knicks a much better team.

    It will be interesting to see what LB says about Marbury if he takes the coaching job... remember, Larry tried to get Steph off the Olympic team before they got to Athens... somehow I think we are in for quite a few more changes
