2006_04_scoachbrown.jpgWe get it Larry; none of this is your fault. It’s not your fault that you have had to use 40+ different starting lineups. It’s not your fault that there is no morale on this team. It’s not your fault that on a day when we should be enjoying a great 96-94 win, we are instead focusing again on all the off the court crap that comes with being a Knicks’ fan.

There was Larry yesterday holding another one of his press conferences. Talking about how the team doesn’t try and how his job as a coach is to get a team to execute, not to get them to try. He was talking about how he is going to get rid of the quitters in the offseason and how he hopes he will have the backing of Isiah Thomas and Jim Dolan and insinuating he would leave if he didn’t.

We all fell for Brown when he was named coach. Fresh off back-to-back trips to the NBA Finals and coming home to New York, he seemed like the perfect guy to coach the Knicks. We ignored his history of jumping ship and didn’t question why he would want to leave a powerhouse team like Detroit. The players, the GM and the Owner all deserve plenty of blame for the worst season in Knicks’ history, but the coach is guilty as well, he just doesn’t seem to realize it.
