Is Larry Brown Being Bought Out?
I feel I can say that the Knicks stunk like Vlad Radmanovic’s armpits this year without exhibiting any particular bias, and most would agree with me on that. Similarly, I don’t think I’m putting forward my own opinion when I say that Larry Brown and his crackpot tactics were a major contributing factor in the pitiful performance of the team most saw as a middle-of-the-pack performer prior to the start of the season.
Well, it seems as if someone finally broke this “news” in the luxury suite, and now halfwit/entrepreneur James Dolan may buy out the rest of Larry Brown’s contract. This means that the man whose line-ups were largely determined by a dartboard and a magic eight ball will be invited to take a little break from work in exchange for a payout roughly equal to the annual turnover of some small nations.
According to a report in the New York Daily News, Madison Square Garden chairman James Dolan is considering buying out the final four years of Brown’s contract, worth at least $40 million.
The Knicks declined to comment and would neither confirm nor deny a report that Knicks president Isiah Thomas would be named as Brown’s successor.
