    Where will Larry end up next? I picture a return to the Clippers next year after they bump Del Negro. Maybe OKC if the Thunder underachieve under Brooks.

    This thread title is a joke right?

    Once again, he quit the right way.

    He's a great coach, but he needs to retire.

    Meaning the way where he'll collect the rest of his contract, which loosely translated means HE WAS FIRED.

    No, he really did quit.

    Countdown to Lupica column wanting him to return to NYC to instill some defensive toughness on the Knicks...

    oh, no doubt, larry was fired. jordan's statement made that clear. no way this is a team that would still pay him off if he 'quit.'

    i'd love to believe larry will retire to a beach with his family now... but he's a guy you never say never about, although he may have worn out just about every nba option by now.

    I'm sure he'll be back in the NBA, but only after we get a quote from him about how he'd be "happy just coaching high school kids or working with a junior high team for no money."

    The problem is, he's a better coach than at least 75 percent of the coaches in the NBA, so if he still wants to coach, someone will give him another shot.

    I love when coaches are fired during Christmas week. One of my favorite press conference moments ever (I wasn't there) was when the Bulls fired Tim Floyd and Krause screamed into the crowd, "And you can wipe that smirk off your face Mr. Mariotti."
