Larry Brown Interested in the Clippers?

According to S.I., Larry Brown is doing Larry Brown things once again. Try not to act surprised: “Speaking of Charlotte, multiple NBA sources said coach Larry Brown has made preliminary calls to the Clippers to try to line up a position with that organization in case things with Jordan go sideways. Brown, according to sources, was concerned that George Postolos, Charlotte’s would-be owner if Jordan’s group hadn’t raised the necessary capital, was prepared to clean house, which meant that Brown would have been out. To preserve his position as an NBA coach, Brown reached out to Clippers owner Donald Sterling to let him know that he is open to returning to L.A. Brown did not return several calls seeking comment. One source indicated Brown was seeking complete control, including the ability to make personnel decisions. Sterling is said to still be enamored with the idea of getting Brown, who coached the Clippers to the playoffs in 1992 and ’93. Brown also has a home in Malibu and his wife is said to want to move back there.”

    Regardless of what might happen with the Bobcats’ ownership, does Brown really have to reach out to Clippers management this early? It’s not like he’s a nobody jockeying for position over other coaches. There will always be jobs for Larry Brown.

    This just proves that college coaches, current and former, have the ethics of used car salesmen.

    Larry Brown, notoriously hard on point guards. Baron Davis, notorious underachieving point guard. Yeah, that would work.

    Not gonna happen. Him and MJ are non-gay lovers. Now that MJ bought the team, he is staying until the end.
