Thorn: Brown Tried to Switch Blame in Athens

One of the big complaints James Dolan had with Larry Brown was Brown's amnesia when it came to asking for certain players. Brown, said Dolan, had begged for Stevie Francis and Jalen Rose, then after they arrived, dissed them. Now comes Rod Thorn to say Brown did the same thing in Athens. Brown complained after the Olympics that he didn't have enough perimeter shooting. Thorn reminded Brown that people had pressed him to take Michael Redd or Wally Szczerbiak but he wanted Emeka Okafor.
