BROWN MUST RETURN AS PISTONS COACH
Can we end the Larry Brown thing today?
We keep hearing Larry Brown wants to return. And we keep hearing Pistons President Joe Dumars wants him to return.
Brown has led the Pistons to the last two NBA Finals. So why all the drama?
Yes, Brown has health issues. And yes Brown is stalling, delaying when he will tell Dumars yah or nay to whether he can coach next season.
But his brother Herb Brown said Brown's health issues are correctable and that he should be able to coach next season. If that is the case then Brown should return.
The guy is high maintenance. He wants to be loved all the time and he loves to flirt with the next team. But the bottom line is the Pistons are better off with him than without.
Both sides have been hurt by Brown flirting with the New York Knicks and Cleveland Cavaliers.
Some Pistons fans grew tired of his act. Did you hear the smattering of boos during the Eastern Conference Finals against Miami?
In many regards Brown is like a tramp who you cannot trust on the streets.
But the tramp can cook and clean. The tramp can also coach a team.
I'd welcome this tramp back in my house with a just one stipulation.
Focus on home and only home. Larry Brown should come out and say the Pistons are his dream job. This is where he wants to be and he has no interest in any other team. The Pistons need fewer distractions, not more.
Is there a chance Brown could lose the Pistons this season? Sure, but I think the chances are slim. He has at least one more year getting through to these guys. Beyond that it becomes a crap shoot.
Guys let's settle this today.
What can Brown do for you?
How about shut his trap and coach.
