On the day of his opening game as coach of the Detroit Pistons, the murmuring around Larry Brown reverted to his previous team, the Philadelphia 76ers. Asked why he left after six years, Brown told the Detroit Free Press: “I can’t coach assholes anymore, I guess.” You can bet that set real well with his little buddy Allen Iverson.
Thanks a lot Larry – and I used to think you were a class act. It’s amazing how much a scrawny little “thug” like AI constantly shows you up. I’m sure Detroit will really begin to appreciate you when you again fail to win an NBA title while surrounded by so much talent and threaten to quit at the end of every season.
