Larry Brown Wastes No Time
Larry Brown has already started to take digs at the Bobcats roster and the guys who gave it to him, Michael Jordan and Rod Higgins.
“I’m concerned about who’s going to be our third point guard. I’m concerned if we have a small forward that can guard,” Brown said. “I’m concerned if we can find a power forward that can play…”
“When I got the job I told Michael and (GM) Rod (Higgins) that we needed three point guards that could bring the ball up against the press, one of them with size. We needed two small forwards that could defend. And we needed five big guys and try to make them as athletic as possible,” Brown said.
So how does this roster mesh with what he wanted?
“I don’t know if it does,” Brown said. “We’ll just have to wait and see how it plays out.”
Yes, its true, Larry Brown has already thrown his bosses under a bus and training camps are barely starting. If the season goes south quick he will always be able to say that he wasn’t given the roster that he wanted. He just gave himself an out to say, “Its not my fault we sucked, I told them what we needed to win.”
The man can coach, we’ve all seen him coach up a team quite well, but he doesn’t normally start burning bridges before a game gets played. Usually Larry saves that for much later in the season. Should be fun times in Charlotte this year.
