- Larry Brown feels so humiliated by the way the Knicks treated him over the last two months that he is considering retirement, according to a person close to the Hall of Fame coach. But he still wants the $40 million the Knicks owe him.
"I don't think there is any way he coaches next season," the source said. "This could be it. He said the last eight weeks were the most humiliating of his life."
Brown was fired as Knicks head coach on Thursday following a contentious one-hour meeting with Garden chairman James Dolan and team president Isiah Thomas. But the Brown saga is far from over. Dolan is fighting to keep the $40million owed to Brown, citing just cause for the firing.

Karl also told ESPN that the Knicks put Brown "through a year of hell" and that the Knicks' handling of Brown's protracted firing gives the league "a black eye."
