    Hats off to Larry, it may sound cruel
    but we laughed at him when he said he was through
    He told some lies now it's the Grizzlies turn to cry.

    No doubt. He may not be a good person, but he is one heck of a businessman!

    Noone ever said that LB is stupid, even though he may be the biggest SOB out there with a HUGE ego. He took $18mil from NY after taking money from D-town. The question is - how much is enough? And where does he fit his family life? After all these years of coaching, isn't there time in life to settle down and spend time with our family? Apparently not for LB.

    Yeah...it can't be about the money. LB has enough money to keep him in diapers and catheter tubing for the next few centuries.

    This team has like a 45% chance of getting one of the top two draft choices. How can they think LB is the right man.........he hates rookies after 4 years of college. What would he do with a high school player. Oh yea, thats right...I forgot about DMC.........................

    Memphis? Why would someone from Long Island with all the money he could possibly want and lingering health issues decide to coach a fourth-rate team in a third-rate town in the middle of nowhere?

    Hopefully whoever ends up as GM of that team is wise enough to recognize LB as too good to be true.

    He should be fine with their young players as long as they are not foreign.

    Should be a good gig for him. Not all the pressure he had in NY.

    I still come back to the question I posed earlier: why does he need it?

    He likes to coach and probably does not want to end his career with that NY fiasco.

    He'd probably do fine in Memphis. As badly as things went in New York, his track record of taking over crap teams and quickly improving them into playoff squads consists of one bad year with one franchise against 15 or 20 very good years with 4 or 5 other franchises, so I'd say that the odds of him being successful with the Grizz are pretty solid.
