You say "tomato", MJ says GTFO.

MJ is like Isiah Thomas: great as a player, but a disaster off the court. Larry Brown may have been part of the problem, but he had plenty of help.

Larry Brown is twice the coach that Phil Jackson wishes he could be. All Jackson has done in his career is roll out the balls at practice for all the All-Star talent he's had.

See I don't think lb was the problem at all.The roster stinks. Theur two 'stars' aren't even all-star caliber....You cannot win in the nba without stars.....periodMj is soley at fault and rumors of him trying to trade for guys like baron davis only PROVE how incompetant he is

yOUR RIGHT ....jgb ... add trade Tyson Chandler for Damp ' non guaranteed contact so MJ could Cut Damp & Cost .... and let your starting pG Felton go to NYk as a FA .... not much for LB to work with.

That's the thing about the Baron Davis rumors, they are only RUMORS.

hhahahah! nice! i was about to say the saaaammee thing.

Larry WAS a great coach for a while waaaay back when MJ was still playing. But the game has passed him over, mainly due to his unwillingness to change because of his idiotic ego. I used to think both LB, and MJ were great for the NBA... but now I think both need to just walk away and become ambassadors. Everything MJ touches turns to poop, and everytime LB opens his mouth these days it makes it look like maybe back in the day Iverson was actually the smarter of the two.
