Alright, I've wanted to bring this up before, and now that we have a better forum where we can actually keep a thread running, I think it's time. What will you miss about LB? I don't know about you all, but I'm gonna miss a ton about this guy. I'm going to miss some of his coaching strategies, I'm gonna miss some of his personality quirks, and I'm even gonna miss the way he shouted so loudly on the sidelines (I always loved when he yelled at Memo. "Hey Memo!" he would shout over 20,000 people. Loved that.) I'm going to miss his basketball philosophy: that the regular season should be used to fix weaknesses, that it should be used to make all players 3-dimensional, as opposed to specialized 1-dimensional players. LB's insistence that Ben should contribute offensively sticks out as a key example, but the evolution of Rip and Chaunce as 3D players should not be overlooked. He expected those guys to raise their games -- nay! -- he demanded it, and it paid-off big time. Some moments I loved: - The first time he was ejected as Pistons coach. It was against the Warriors at home. The crowd chanted "Larry! Larry!" as he walked away, after initially refusing to leave. - I love the sideline speech at the end of Game 5 against LA. "We win the next few minutes and we're gonna be the World Champs! The WORLD CHAMPS!" - The time when he mimicked Rick Carlisle. RC was standing too close to mid court and LB complained. But when the ref wouldn't do anything, LB moved closer to mid court to prove a point, yelling and moaning, folding his arms. Anyways, I could go on and on. But mostly, I just don't want to forget about all the basketball knowledge he gave to this town.
