Larry Brown Can't Stay Quiet

Why is it that Larry Brown always feels the need to make himself part of any story he can? There seriously is no bigger fraud in all of Pro Sports. Whenever the guy stays quiet for an extended period of time, you know a comment making himself look good cannot be that far away.

Now Larry gives an interview to Philadelphia Magazine talking about his experiences with the Knicks. In the article, Larry said there were "spies" everywhere he went within Madison Square Garden. Oh, and poor, innocent Larry didn't like the way he was treated by the organization: "Imagine when you get to work, they don't talk to you," he said. "They had security people standing close to me in press conferences, and spies throughout the arena."

Of course, no shock to anyone, Brown says he wants to coach again, but not in Philadelphia because he "could never stab Mo in the back like that." You know what I say to that? BULL SHIT! There is no bigger back-stabber in the business than Brown. He will screw anyone over to get his way. He has been leaking stuff to the press for years. Stephen A. Smith used to be his guy in Philly when he was there. The bottom line, Larry Brown is a master manipulator.

Here is a list of half-truths, given to us by one of the greatest of our many MTAC moles:

1. Told the Detroit media the day he was hired that "I am here for the long haul".

2. Said during the playoffs in 2005 that "this is my last coaching job".

3. Said during the 2005 playoffs that he never spoke to Cavs owner Dan Gilbert, yet openly in front of players on the team bus was on his cellphone complaining that the Cavs were not going to hire his friend and hand picked GM Milt Newton (who played for Brown at Kansas) to run the Cleveland team.

4. Called Liz Robbins of the NY Times "an evil, evil woman" for suggesting he was talking to the Cavs during the 2005 playoffs. He then later admitted to being an acting "consultant" for the Cavs.

5. Negotiated his deal with Kansas in the middle of the playoffs while with the NJ Nets.

6. When coaching USA basketball, Brown begged USA officials to add Emeka Okafor to the roster. Then when he flopped, he told everybody he didn't want Okafor.

7. Brown used his health as a way of getting out of Detroit after the 2005 season to get the Knicks job. He told the media he planned on being at training camp Oct 3rd for his third season, while secretly working on a buyout from the pistons and talking to Isiah in NY.

What a great guy. You think he won't stab Mo Cheeks in the back if he got the chance to better himself in the process? Don't fool yourself.
