I'm starting to see that Larry Brown is quite possibly one of the most overrated coaches ever. Sure the guy probably has more bball knowledge in his pinky than I do, but from a pure coaching standpoint, he's too full of himself and his own methods, to make this situation work. Good coaches like Pat Riley and (dare I say it) Phil Jackson take what they have and make the most of it and win.
I came into this season waiting anxiously for the Lakers to be awful so that all my yrs of arguing that Phil Jackson can only win with a ready made team would be confirmed. Instead, he's come in, realized that the only way for this team to have a winnign record is to just let it all ride on Kobe, and surprisingly, they actually have been keep their heads above water with a 15-14 record. Granted Kobe is a scoring machine and among the best players in the league, but I still think if you compare rosters, the Knicks should probably be doing much better than they are.
Why isn't this the case? Because thick-headed and stubborn Larry Brown only knows one way to coach, and he's ready to have his team suck for however many yrs it'll take before he gets the roster he desires. I'm sorry, but with the Knicks cap situation that just isn't gonna happen. He needs to quit his stupid indecision, quit his lame whining, and come up with a set rotation (preferably one that features the young guys), and start making the most of what he has.
Game after game he uses the same tired phrase that "it's my fault..." "...it's on me.." "...I need to coach better..." Well, really LB...ya think? Get off your behind and do it then!
