James Dolan, the chairman of Madison Square Garden, is upset. He's upset because Larry Brown did not transform a team of over-privileged, over-hyped whiners into champions. In response to Brown's performance, Dolan is "considering" buying out the remaining four years of his contract worth at least $40 million. Isiah Thomas is supposedly in line to replace Brown as head coach.
Brown, who led the Knicks to a 23-59 season, indicated that he will not resign. But the club could avoid having to pay another coach upward of $5 million a year if Thomas takes the job.
