This week, Hoops Links would like to wish happy birthday to Southern Methodist University coach Larry Brown, who has served as coach for an eye-popping ten NBA and ABA franchises. Brown, 73, began his coaching career in 1972 when he agreed to man the sidelines for Davidson after his four-year professional playing career came to a close. The Brooklyn-native never did settle in one place for too long and for many years, the Larry O'Brien trophy eluded him. Of course, that came to an end in 2004 when he guided the Pistons to the NBA championship.
