Larry Brown, the veteran NBA vagabond coach who had a disappointing single season coaching the New York Knicks in his most recent stint on the bench, would be interested in getting back into coaching with the Sacramento Kings, a newspaper reported.
"I want to get back," Brown told the Sacramento Bee from his home in Philadelphia. "I miss it terribly. I haven't lost the passion to teach and coach. I don't want to end my career at 23-59. I feel I can do better. I look at Sacramento ... I respect the heck out of Geoff [Petrie]. I coached half that team. I don't mind going somewhere that's rebuilding, but wherever I go, I want everybody to feel that I'm the right person."
Oh, please please PLEASE let this happen! Brown coaching Artest could be the biggest trainwreck of the 2007-08 season! It has the potential for some great entertainment.

I guess he does have some Philadelphia ties after all...Its just that when outsiders (like me) think of Chris Ford, I'm sure we all just remember him waving the towel for the Celtics on the bench back in the 81 conf. finals...
