Larry Brown announces this will be his last coaching stop: No kidding ..... he's 64 now and missed time for health reasons last season, i'd be shocked if he made it through his new contract with Knicks with their potent line-up . Being a defensive minded coach handed a team that can't score if their life depended on it , I would think he like all Knicks fans should slip into a coma watching them "perform" .

He'll never make it through his contract. If not for health reasons, it will be for something else. Like the Knicks suck.

Larry has always had the wanderlust. Maybe he can settle down in the Big Apple. I do find that notion rather hard to believe, with what looks like a below average team and salary cap problems, it certainly won't be the instant gratification he usually gets. I would be VERY surprised if he lasts more than a year before retiring or skipping town...again.

I still don't understand why he didn't go to the Cavs. A front office job would be a lot less physically taxing the being head coach, plus it would allow him to abandon several more clubs over the next few years.

LARRY BROWN WILL FLY AWAY FROM THE KNICKS WHEN HE BECOMES BORED ONCE AGAIN. THE MAN HAS NO LOYALTY TOWARD ANY NBA TEAM, JUST HOT FEET.

That has to be the most embarrassing photo I've ever seen. Tell me that's been Photoshopped, please.

i agree he isnt going to be on the bench for very long he is gettin too old to be coaching and i think something is wrong because he left the team that he built to go to a team that sucks so maybe he has some brain damage also

The bow tie tops off this ensemble . I do think it was nice of him to wear the pants his mother made for him out of an old table cloth ,no matter how embarassing it may have been . Thank God the 70's is no more than a bad nightmare now .

Seriously, I'm sick of hearing about this guy. If he is as good as the media is making him out to be, shouldn't he have 10 rings by now? He happened to coach a great team to a title, now he's a coaching god? It's the Ditka complex all over again...

this is larry brown's last stop? could be, only because it's the big apple. after the nyc press eviscerates brown (after either not making the playoffs for years to come or getting drubbed in the first round), larry may have had enough ... and he can then retire and hide away, and then we can all look back at a great, great coach (which he is) who craved attention and the spotlight as much as any hollywood starlet wannabe ever. best of lucky to larry in nyc. it won't be pretty.
