Larry Brown

  1. Shaun Livingston already dealing with fluid on the knee

    Sep 28, 2010, 1:44 PM EDT

    I’m rooting for Shaun Livingston to make it. I know, media are supposed to be objective yada yada yada… we root for some things. We have favorites (and no, probably not the Heat or Lakers or whoever you think in most cases). I want Livingston to make it. But already there are setbacks. He has…

  2. How did Byron Scott become a coach? Blame Pat Riley for that, too.

    Sep 24, 2010, 5:41 PM EDT

    Byron Scott was drafted out of Arizona State as a pure shooter onto a team with Kareem, Magic and Worthy — he got some good looks. He came in knowing he was a baller. He didn’t come in thinking of himself as a guy who would coach some day. But his coaches saw it in…

  3. Winderman: Celebrating all that has gone wrong in Charlotte (and still making the playoffs)

    Sep 15, 2010, 2:36 PM EDT

    Today, we salute the Charlotte Bobcats. No, not for any front-office wizardry (in fact, far from it), but rather for the fact that the franchise, somehow, is coming off its first-ever playoff berth. Because today we also celebrate all that has gone wrong with the franchise. It is the day we learned that Adam Morrison…

  4. Kwame Brown signs deal with Michael Jordan's Bobcats

    Aug 23, 2010, 3:13 PM EDT

    Kwame Brown and Michael Jordan are together again. Bet you didn’t see that coming. But Brown has signed a one-year deal at the veteran’s minimum to play for the Charlotte Bobcats next season, according to ESPN’s Marc Stein. He had played the last two seasons with the Pistons. Michael Jordan gets credit in most people’s…

  5. Charlotte picks up undrafted free agent Sherron Collins

    Aug 6, 2010, 4:19 PM EDT

    The Charlotte Bobcats are about to find out just how rough life after Raymond Felton can be. With D.J. Augustin and Shaun Livingston as the primary point guards on the roster, Charlotte has added Sherron Collins as the team’s third PG, giving the Bobcats a trio of young guards to pair with Stephen Jackson. Between…

  6. Bobcats looking to continue pattern of heavy trade activity

    Jun 19, 2010, 3:00 PM EDT

    Since Larry Brown took over as head coach of the Bobcats, each season has held a significant trade to overhaul the franchise. First it was trading Jason Richardson for Boris Diaw and Raja Bell. Then trading Emeka Okafor for Tyson Chandler. Then trading Bell for Stephen Jackson. And most recently acquiring Tyrus Thomas for Flip…

  7. Sorry Clippers, looks like Larry Brown is staying in Charlotte

    Jun 7, 2010, 5:37 PM EDT

    Larry Brown is back in Charlotte, doing his job. Which is still head coach of the Charlotte Bobcats. The same job he will have next season. Apparently. That is what he is telling Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer. “I’m here, coaching. So obviously I’m under contract, doing my job.” So I followed up on…

  8. Does Ferry's resignation open the door for a LeBron James-Larry Brown meetup?

    Jun 5, 2010, 10:30 AM EDT

    Danny Ferry wound up going down with the ship, as it were. But the Navy still needs an admiral, and now the question has to become if this was part of an effort to nab a bigger fish. Assistant GM Chris Grant is taking over for the time being, but with the biggest summer in…

  9. Larry Brown just tries to spend time with family, but people keep asking about his plans

    May 12, 2010, 1:05 PM EDT

    For the record, Larry Brown is still the coach of the Charlotte Bobcats. Felt the need to mention that, because his name comes up in seemingly every coaching search. There’s also rumors of him in the front office in Philadelphia. So far, there has been no action. Just Brown spending time with his family, according…

  10. Doug Collins is first call in Philadelphia coach search

    Apr 29, 2010, 8:52 AM EDT

    Former NBA coach and current TNT broadcaster Doug Collins has gotten the first call about becoming head coach of the Philadelphia 76ers. That’s according to the Philadelphia Inquirer, who said nobody else has yet been contacted by team president and general manager Ed Stefanski. However, you can bet that Collins will not be the only…

  11. As the Larry Brown coaching saga turns: Philadelphia will talk to him, Charlotte plans for change

    Apr 28, 2010, 10:10 AM EDT

    This is starting to make federal financial reform look simple. The latest in the Larry Brown coaching saga is that the Philadelphia 76ers do want to talk to him, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer. But only about being their coach, nothing more. The 76ers are poised to contact Larry Brown about their coaching vacancy, but…

  12. Sixers: Larry Brown rumors "total, unadulterated bull"

    Apr 27, 2010, 10:30 AM EDT

    Like weeds, every few days new “Larry Brown will head to Philadelphia” rumors come up. And just as fast everyone involved pulls out the Round-Up and tries to kill it. But the rumors and denials circle will not die Yesterday, the Larry Brown to the Sixers rumors were back. Today, we bring you denials from…

  13. Sixers still want Larry Brown as coach, maybe more

    Apr 26, 2010, 9:08 AM EDT

    When Larry Brown says “I don’t want to coach there” does anyone really take him at his word? The brass of the Philadelphia 76ers doesn’t. Can’t really blame them, either. Larry Brown has said he doesn’t want to leave Charlotte, doesn’t want to return to Philadelphia and coach the Sixers. But the brass in Philly…

  14. Quote of the day, Larry Brown motivational techniques

    Apr 21, 2010, 2:55 PM EDT

    ‘Yesterday, Orlando took the day off. That’s how [expletive] seriously they’re taking us.’ –Charlotte Bobcats coach Larry Brown, trying to fire up his team before game two of their playoff series tonight. Orlando leads the series 1-0.

  15. Tyson Chandler injured against Bulls, X-rays negative

    Apr 14, 2010, 8:49 PM EDT

    Larry Brown tried to outguess the basketball gods. He guessed wrong. Brown had debated whether to play his starters tonight, having locked up the seventh seed in the playoffs with no chance of moving higher. But there’s always the possibility of disrupting rhythm, which supports playing the important guys. Of course, the last thing you…

  16. Surprise, surprise: Larry Brown could be moving on to Philly

    Apr 13, 2010, 12:57 PM EDT

    Oh, Larry Brown. Behind the “right way” philosophy and his “old school” approach is just a tough-love-’em-and-leave-’em kind of guy, content to leave every coaching job before wearing out his welcome and yet somehow, still wear out his welcome. Brown hasn’t even come close during his short time with the Charlotte Bobcats, mostly because he’s…

  17. Tyrus Thomas forgot everything he was told, then went out and excelled

    Feb 20, 2010, 9:52 AM EDT

    Knucklehead. Headcase. These are the words that have described Tyrus Thomas throughout his NBA career. The 23-year-old has developed a reputation as immature and unwilling to adapt to what his coaches have told him. If last night was any indication, he may function pretty well without that input. Thomas started his Bobcats career in his…

    Feb 18, 2010, 2:36 PM EDT

UPDATE 1:43PM: The deal is close but not yet done, and includes Nazr Mohammed and Gerald Henderson going to Indiana, and Brandon Rush going to Charlotte. The…
