I didn't get any inclination at the Charlotte-Oklahoma City game Tuesday night that Larry Brown was about to quit.
Brown obviously was terribly frustrated with his team.
I know he misses Raymond Felton, and the Bobcats got nothing for Tyson Chandler. But what did Brown gain by incessantly ripping his team? Do players respond to constant public criticism?
This might be some new leadership model. Or it might be a veteran coach who is tired of leading a losing team.
Brown talked Tuesday night about his family -- his wife and younger children -- being in town from Philadelphia to visit. He seemed happy about that.
Does a man about to walk out say such a thing? I'll be shocked if Brown knew his resignation was coming. So either he suddenly decided to quit, or somebody told him to.
