He gets bored, he gets what in his eyes is a better offer, the grass is greener on the other side, blah blah, BOLT. He's like the guy who runs away from every one of his romantic relationships the minute is gets serious because he has issues with commitment. The angst of not knowing when Larry Brown decides it's time to go to the next place is not worth having him on your team.

Oh, and he's also quite possibly the dullest, most boring post-game podium speaker ever. I mean, after every single game, when he's at the podium, he always sounds like he's constipated and on valium.
Larry Brown has a way of taking a team up a notch or two and then flying the coop after 2-4 years. The Pistons won 55 games, fire Rick Carlisle and replace him with LB, and they win the championship.

That Joe Dumars is a clever one...

larry brown... bill parcells... scotty bowman... not the first, won't be the last.

even pat riley screwed over his team for a better job with more power... but frankly, after hating his guts for years after the infamous faxed resignation, i'm begining to think riles saw the writing on the wall with the horrificly run organization that is Madison Square Garden, LC.

It's amazing how within 5 years of Jim Dolan taking over the Knicks... Riley, Checkets, Grunfeld, Smith, Keenan... all the people who helped build The Garden into the place to be in the early 90s... all bounced.

Dolan takes over the team in '93... the Knicks and Rangers both make the finals in the '93-'94 season, the Rangers winning the Stanley Cup, based on the work that was put in pre-Dolan... and it's all down hill from there... now both teams are so bad that they're a good 10 years away from even competing for a championship, let alone winning one

Jim Dolan might just be the worst owner in professional sports whose name isn't Donald Sterling. And even that is a close call. I seriously think that Scott Layden->Isiah Thomas might be the worst back-to-back succession of GMs on one team in NBA history. Layden was just a dumbass and Isiah is incapable of just sitting still and excercising some patience. So are a lot of Knicks fans(not point at you or anything Headache, just at a large number of Knicks fans I've known). I honestly a good number of Knicks fans would rather be mediocre now than great in 5 years. At some point both Isiah and a large number of Knicks fans are going to have to face the reality that they are so strangled in the salary cap area that the only way to fix it is to just wait for some of those deals to run out.

the knicks were once the most prized job in the entire NBA... with the possiable exception of the Lakers. this was just 10 years ago.

phil jackson was offered 10-12 million per year, an nba record, to coach the knicks... the team he's always dreamed of coaching thanks to his idol, red holzman... and he turned it down. how the mighty have fallen.

i do hear many knick fans on the radio talking about how they like marbury and defend isiah... it's about half and half. half have no problem with isiah because they still blame layden, the other half are in my boat... burn the damned thing down to the ground and start from scratch.

with every losing season, those in the scorch and burn category grow larger and larger.

there is a growing opposition to jim dolan... led by disgruntled knick fans and pissed off Jets fans, who dolan is doing his damndest to keep from getting a new stadium. we will win... it may take 5-10 years... but we will get this s.o.b. to sell the team eventually...

The San Antonio Spurs have just advanced into the championship round. The Suns are going home.

kidney's, thighs and ribs... oh my.

the vaunted pistons defense simply can't guard the big aristotle. plain and simple. if shaq was healthy, this series would already be over. when the diesel is even semi-effective, he makes everyone on the court better. if kobe bryant had ever figured this out, the lakers would have never lost to anyone... pistons, spurs... anyone.

now we have to worry about dwayne wade's rib... strained muscle... should be fine, but eh... who knows. the heat are already playing with guys with one kidney, one thigh and dislocated fingers... why not a strained rib muscle to boot. again... as has been the case for the whole time... the series rests on the health of the heat. if shaq can put together another game like he did last night... not vintage shaq by any stretch, but effective enough to demand a double team... and wade is good enough to go, and alonzo isn't too fatigued by the drug cocktails he has to take just to live... the heat win this series. if the health issues are too much to handle, the pistons win.

aaaand now on to rasheed wallace. if lord stern has any cojolnes, he will levy the same fine he gave jeff van gundy to rasheed wallace... 'cause rasheed baisicly said the same thing van gundy did... that there's a conspiracy being carried out by the nba ref's. it won't happen... rasheed will get about a $10,000 fine and a slap on the wrist. but when rasheed doesn't get the same fine, van gundy then has quite the argument for an appeal, if he so chooses.

rasheed is the only piston i actually like (besides darko ). he's absolutely bonkers... that's why i like him. but he's again showing his bonkerness with this post game rant. how can you, in all honesty, blame the officiating for your loss when you took just 3 shots in the entire game?

rasheed wallace is by far the most talented offensive player on the pistons. if he's taking 3 shots, they have no chance. this is a player who used to put up dominating performances against shaq and the lakers when he was with portland. it is not a coincidence that in the two games the pistons have won, rasheed has scored 20 points. the refs didn't keep him from taking just 3 shots in the entire game... and rasheed needs a reality check.

were there a lot of offensive fouls called yesterday? yes... shaq was called for two bogus ones himself. one with elden campbel guarding him where he simply turned around, doing nothing different than any other move he's ever made in his career... and the other where he caught ben wallace in the mouth with a forearm. now why, you say, is that last one a BS offensive foul? very simple... both of ben wallace's feet were inside the semi-circle. so while shaq clearly fouled wallace, if it's inside the semi-circle it's not supposed to be called an offensive foul. it was, so be it. so rasheed got called for three offensive fouls... shaq got called for two. where's the conspiracy? rasheed should worry less about the refs and more about getting tooled by udonis haslem.

the only thing that surprised me is that richard hamilton, he of the barry sanders-esque stiff arms, actually was called for an offensive foul. now that was shocking.

If the Heat win the series, the hobbled Tim Duncan may be the healthiest player on the floor in the finals.
Detroit's offensive ineptitude is remarkable at times. How they won a title still mystifies me a bit.

Detroit won't let the series end on their own floor...they'll get it back to Miami. As for game 7 in Miami....in the words of Rudy T., don't ever underestimate the heart of a champion.

it's funny how you bring up rudy T ... because all the so called champions have been doing lately is getting T'd up

and I believe shaq's been a champion a few times as well... should we underestimate his heart?

Game 6 at the Palace of Auburn Hills is about to start.

The news at the moment is that Dwayne Wade will NOT play tonight.

I think Detroit will win tonight, force Game 7.

Said Heat guard Damon Jones: "We're going home, and we've been good at home all year long. You know, win or go home. And I don't fish."
