I have a great deal of respect for Larry Brown. Most coaches would have taken the job, the money and said the hell with the old interrum guy, but not Brown. According to NY post, ESPN, and NBA.com Larry Brown insisted on having sit down with interrum coach Herb Williams. He wanted herb to be a part of his new administration and refered to Herb as "A soldier for the Knicks franchise". Let's not forget that Herb hung in there while Thomas and crew actively searched for his replacement. Brown offered Herb a head assistant position. In my opinion that was a great move by Brown. In the event that Brown's health declines, he'll have some one at his side that is experienced and knows the team as well as his coaching style.
