Larry Brown is a good coach and thats about it. There is nothing great about him. He's not a motivator, he's not into developing players. what he does do very well is strategically set up lineups and follow through. Thats pretty much his worth.
Larry Brown has won a NBA championship and a NCAA Title. His biggest knock was always that he is a nomad. He took the Sixers to the NBA finals with Iverson and a bunch of role players. Everywhere he went, before he came to the Knicks, the teams became better. I mean, he made the Clippers a playoff team, that alone should make him one of the best.
You may love Isiah, but Larry Brown has forgotten more about coaching basketball than Isiah Thomas knows.
