Default Has Larry Brown gone Crazy??

Quote:
4. Lamar Odom = Underrated

Lamar is one of the best players in our league and is possibly as underrated as anybody in the league. He rebounds unbelievably well (9.7 rpg this season), is a tremendous defender and a great ball handler. The way Phil Jackson plays him in their system, he can play any position. Any time he plays at a high level, the Lakers are as good as any team in the league. He and Ilgauskas are two guys who donít get a lot of credit. When I look at Lamar, Garnett, Kirilenko, they fill up the stat sheet and their value isnít always scoring the ball. Lamar makes everybody on his team better. I was fortunate to get to coach him on the Olympic team and he has always been someone I admired him from afar, but being around him on a daily basis, you realize that heís a pretty special player.

this one statement alone should bar him from any future NBA coaching jobs. A "tremendous defeder", one of the "best players in our league", I think he has lost it..

i dont agree with his comments about odom, but lamar is a good player and handles the ball very well for a 6'10 player.. causes mismatches all the time..

when is the last time Odom has caused a mismatch. It seems right in theory bujt he doesnt capatilize on these imaginary mismatches because he cant finish and doesnt have any moves besides a hesitation dribble and doesnt have a right hand.

Exactly what I thought when I read that.

The mismatch is simply one of a visual nature, not a competitive one.

Larry Brown w/o the drama would be a PERFECT coach for the Cavs, but with the man comes his drama and baggage, so no thanks.............
