Hubie was going, ‘That’s the way Larry Johnson should play, he should get back to the way he used to play. That’s great to see.’ And halftime we walk off the court and he was with the Knicks and I say, ‘Larry, Hubie Brown was just commenting about how well you were playing.’ [Johnson said], ‘You can tell Hubie to go [expletive] himself. He’s not my coach.’ I go, ‘uh, OK.’ ”
