We've tried to ignore Larry Brown over the course of the last few days as he's come out and ripped Michael Jordan. But, it's clear that the new head coach of the SMU men's basketball team is going to continue to do it so, what the hell, we'll bite. Just a few days after saying that MJ has struggled as the owner of the Charlotte Bobcats because he's surrounded by too many yes men, the former Bobcats coach appeared on The Dan Patrick Show this morning and continued on his tirade against his former employer.
"He has people around him that just made me sick," Brown said. "I mean, it was not comfortable. It was almost like there were spies wondering what you were doing and getting back to him. I should have spent more time face to face with Michael, because I do see a passion. I think he's just hurt right now…When I talked to him about playing and strengths and weaknesses and what we need to do to be successful, he's right on point. But he has all these other people get in the way and you can't do it like that."
On the one hand, Brown seems to have a point. There has to be a reason the Bobcats are as bad as they are right now. On the other, he probably should stop talking about Jordan ASAP, lest we start to get the idea that he's still bitter about his time with the Bobcats and unable to get over it. We all know MJ has been a failure as the owner of the Bobcats (so far). We don't really need Larry Brown to keep reminding us about it.
