What Can Brown Do For Us?

Quick word on the Larry Brown hiring. What's with all the naysayers here? I don't get it. What, exactly, is the downside of bringing in a world-class, hall of fame coach to take an abolutely dreadful franchise and make them into winners?

Who cares if it costs 50 or 55 million dollars? It's not your money. Chances are you can't afford to pay for Knicks tickets at this point anyway. Dolan is picking up this tab and it dosn't hurt the salary cap.

But he'll never stay for 5 years. So what? He can change the mentality of the franchise in two. Heck, if Herm Edwards can do it with the lovable loser Jets, Larry Brown can certainly do it to a storied franchise with a (somewhat) winning history.

So kudos to isaih Thomas, for the first time in his tenure doing something positive.

And good luck to Larry Brown. He's going to need it. I know his reputation but this roster is terrible.
