LARRY BROWN NEWS

Blogcat’s Take, 6/28

My lord, find me a happier set of weeks in Bobcats/Hornets history since...ever? I guess with the franchise’s recent agreement with the NBA you’re technically allowed to reach back to the original Charlotte Hornets, but those don’t count because I wasn’t there. Yes, I had a Charlotte Hornets baseball cap as a kid, but that’s only because it was issued to me in suburban...

In the NBA, coaching carousal taking unsightly spins

This is utter insanity. Seriously. How else can we describe what's taking place in the NBA? Coaches lose, and they get fired. Coaches win, and they get fired, too. Coaches are handed teams that resemble something along the lines of a D-League club in purple and gold (that means you, Los Angeles Lakers), and guess what? Those coaches get fired. Maurice Cheeks didn't even last...

The Starting Five: Game-changing edition

While Adam Silver attempts to fix the NBA, let's begin this week's episode of The Starting Five. SHOULD 'NIQUE BE QUIET? Well, he might want to consider typing a bit less often. In a flurry of tweets provoked by LeBron James' 61-point salvo against the Bobcats this week, NBA great Dominque Wilkins basically indicated that what LBJ did was no big deal. The entry we...

Joakim Noah credits his All-Star bid to D.J. Augustin

I’ve been following D.J. Augustin’s career for some time now. From his state championship winning days at Brother Martin High School in New Orleans, to his time alongside Kevin Durant at Texas in which he averaged 14 ppg in 2006, and now to his underwhelming professional career. I cannot actually say that Augustin’s NBA career thus far has been a failure. However, the player...

Larry Brown winning again, with retirement nowhere in sight

Most men his age have settled into retirement by now, but Larry Brown isn’t into shuffleboard or Bingo and he has never lived in Florida. The Hall of Fame coach, Long Island product and former Knicks coach spent 16 months out of basketball after he was fired by the Bobcats in December 2010 — or, more accurately, living a personal nightmare. He isn’t the retiring type. Brown...

Blogcat’s Take, 2/8

The surprise toy in the Bobcats’ Happy Meal of a west coast trip was the reemergence of Gerald Henderson’s usefulness as a shooting guard—as an anything, for that matter. So far this year Henderson is producing his worst output since he was fetching Larry Brown’s coffee as a rookie. After finally getting to the peak [...]

Turn On The Knicks Throwback Thursday – July 25th Edition – New York Knicks Free Agency Blunders

Bad contracts aren’t only limited to players. Larry Brown lasted only one year out the five he signed up for, but was his deal worse than the Jerome James or Allan Houston blunders? It’s hard to say argue against it. In 2005, it seemed like a match made in heaven. The New York Knicks ended each of their last two seasons with Herb Williams as their interim head coach and needed...

Jessica, Can You Tell Us Why You Hate Larry Brown? Yes, Because He’s a Slut.

  YUCK! Someone asked me this question on twitter the other day and it caught me by surprise. What do you mean why don’t I like Larry Brown? Are there people who DO like Larry Brown? Who are these people and why aren’t they in jail?  Larry Brown is a slut. Not only is he a slut, he’s the worst kind of slut. While he’s romancing you he’s thinking of someone else. And...

Reports: Larry Brown contacted about NBA openings

The SMU coach and basketball Hall of Famer has been contacted by the Brooklyn Nets and Philadelphia 76ers about coaching in the NBA again, according to an anonymous source reported on SNY.tv. The source said a third team, possibly the Los Angeles Clippers, has also contacted Brown. The source did not say the amount of...

The Fall of JewBall

Around the country Jewish basketball is growing rapidly, with tournaments, the Maccabi games and even websites like Jewish Hoops America and Jewish Coaches. But while high school and even the college ranks continue to grow, the last few years in the NBA that brought us hope have quickly evaporated. A few years back there was a resurgence of Jewish NBA talks. First...

The Diff: Regression to the mean and the Cavaliers

For my entire archive of The Diff at WFNY, check out this tag. Last week’s edition tackled an aggregate of 60 mock drafts from around the Internet, which obviously didn’t prove that fruitful when the Browns took Barkevious Mingo (projected by only 3 mock drafts). Oh well. Back in my second-ever version of The Diff, on Jan. 23, I wrote over 3,000 words on six specific franchise...

Michael Jordan Is Not Fitting Through That Door

Comeback... to the buffet Age isn't fun.

Live Game Updates - Bobcats @ Celtics

7:13: The Celtics will face the 9-27 Bobcats tonight at the TD Garden. The Bobcats are third-to-last in the conference and don't have a very bright future. Every good player they get they either trade away or that player loses his edge. They've been like this since Larry Brown left. But they're still an NBA team who can compete, so play hard and put them away early. There...

SMU's Brown, Tulsa's Manning in rare matchup

Now that he's back in the college game, Larry Brown is looking for the next Danny Manning. Meantime, he's not very excited about coaching against the real thing. When Manning and Tulsa visit SMU on Sunday night, it will be just the second time the most outstanding player from an NCAA championship team opposes his coach on the sideline.

SMU good fit for Larry Brown

Larry Brown was a young assistant on coach Dean Smith's staff at North Carolina in the mid-1960s when he turned down his first head coaching offer. At the time, Brown didn't think he was ready. But Smith asked him where he'd like to coach one day. ''I said, of course North Carolina, but I didn't ever want to see him step down,'' Brown recalled. ...

Larry Brown's passion for basketball runs deep

There was little of interest in the basketball game between TCU and SMU last week, a theory of mine confirmed within minutes of arrival.
