    Mike Brown and Doc Rivers (among many others), watch your backs.

    Michael Jordan, prepare for a whole new set of roster demands (on top of the ones you already got last season).

    Drama Queening the Right Way. ::)

    Do the Bobcats have a "max-out" guy on their roster? There's no way they should be having financial problems in Charlotte.

    L. Brown: "I'm afraid they may not own the team the right way!"

    Maybe so, Starman. But Michael Jordan is too arrogant to listen to anyone. He and Bob Johnson are primary reasons why this franchise has been a massive joke from the moment it was founded.

    Why would anyone want Larry Brown these days? He's pushing 90 (OK an exaggeration, but he's getting old), with every move, it seems his ability to turn a franchise around diminishes (just like Don Nelson), what's the appeal here?

    He's still the all-time Bubbler champ when it comes to a personal one-on-one dressing down by a coach, a title that will be tough for any coach to match.

    Don't think so. Emeka Okafor is on the books for $12 million per, IIRC, but no serious cap problems.

    Sure, I know all that.

    But they already did turn over a good chunk of the roster last year, and no doubt Brown will want to turn most of it over again.

    To be fair, they did get somewhat better (not too hard considering they sucked before), but even when he was YOUNG, Brown never wanted to build a team "the right way" (heheheh).

    Every year, he wants 9 new players (never mind he selected most of the roster in the first place). If the team does well, he wants 8 new players the next year. If it doesn't do well, he wants 11. Of course, since he doesn't plan on being there more than 3 years tops, the fact that you continually tear apart the foundation of the team doesn't bother him a bit.

    Well, sure Starman. Larry Brown wants things built for him because it's "the right way." Never mind that his suitcase is always packed and ready to go when one peeks around the doorway.

    He's always more important that any long-term franchise goal. Which is why he's exactly the wrong guy for what's wrong in Charlotte.

    Don't see anything newer on the board, so I guess this is as good a place as any:


    Trolling for a job with the Clippers.
