Please, MJ, hire Larry Brown

This way, the NBA can be rid of two knuckleheads in one move.

It would take some time, yes, but after one year of Larry Brown, the city of Charlotte -- not to mention Michael Jordan's superiors with the Bobcats, assuming he has any -- would be ready to run both of them out of town.

For Brown, who gives a half-day's work for a week's pay, it would certainly be the last time any NBA executive would be stupid enough to hire him. For Jordan, it would certainly be the last time any NBA franchise would be stupid enough to give him control of its basketball operations.

Jordan was a great player, probably the greatest ever. But the only executive worse than him has been Isiah Thomas ... who happens to be the last executive to think hiring Brown was a good idea. How did that turn out for the Knicks? And for Isiah?

See, Brown isn't a great hire. He's a franchise-killer. He doesn't get along with anybody but the owner, because he knows whose butt to kiss (see: his relationship with Dean Smith.) Everybody else gets alienated by Brown, a one-man plague of locusts who then moves on to the next city. But Jordan somehow is thought to be considering hiring Brown, probably because Dean the UNC don says it must be so.

After this debacle, if it happens, there won't be a next NBA city. Not for Brown. Not for Jordan.

So please make this hire, MJ. Hire Larry Brown, and do it fast.

I'm beyond sick of both of you.
