Larry Brown is an egotistical, hypocritical, cranky old man.

He’s also a heck of a basketball coach.

Specifically, he’s a hopeless basketball romantic who loves to teach the game. So, maybe this could work.

Jim Baumbach of Newsday:

Of all his jobs – including the Denver Nuggets, UCLA, New Jersey Nets, Kansas, San Antonio Spurs, Los Angeles Clippers, Indiana Pacers, Philadelphia 76ers, Detroit Pistons, New York Knicks, Charlotte Bobcats and SMU – Brown, a native New Yorker, held the Knicks in the highest regard. Ironically, that one-year stint with the Knicks was his biggest failure.

Perhaps, there’d be something therapeutic for him returning to his home state to coach high school.
