Larry Brown Rumors

Larry Brown, the Brooklyn-born Basketball Hall of Famer, is telling pals he wants to become the coach of the East Hampton HS varsity hoops team. Brown has a house in East Hampton and, at 76, no longer likes the travel involved with the NBA, or with college basketball, for that matter. “He always said he wanted to end his career coaching high-school basketball. I think it’s tremendous,” Peter Vecsey, who covered the NBA for The Post, told me.
Here’s the full transcript of Iverson’s response in the video above from “That’s the only thing that got me here, my teammates and my coaches. That’s the only reason I’m here. All those guys sacrificed their games and sacrificed different things for me to be honored like this. Without them, it wouldn’t have happened. “Without my coaches putting me in a position to succeed, Mike Bailey did it, my high school level, coach Thompson did it, college level. And Larry Brown molded me into an MVP and a Hall of Fame player. Without those guys, I wouldn’t be here. I didn’t do this by myself, man. There was so many people, so many fans that came in there and cheered for me night in and night out, and so many people supported me and believed in me. They made it so easy for me to believe in myself because I didn’t want to let them down. I wanted my fans and my family and my friends to be proud of me, so it was easy for me to go out there night in and night out.”
