Larry Brown Could Be Available ...
The Knicks are rumored to be on the verge of letting Larry Brown walk. With a cozy little nest egg of, oh, $40 million. Which brings up the question, would you have him back? None of his many successors have done as well as he did here. And he does emphasize defense, a skill sorely missed on this squad. Nevertheless, he may have left some relationships in so much disrepair (with Allen Iverson, the front office and the fans) it just couldn't work. Besides it seems like the time to start over, and Brown's never been known to develop young players. That's why I'd vote no. But what do you think?
