"As opposed to Jeffersonians," Ryan says. "He assumes you're a dog until you prove otherwise."
Speaking of Hamilton, about 22,500 $10 bills per year will be Brown's when he takes over the Knicks. And, speaking of dogs, $225,000 may not be a fair wage for supervising the kennel that the Knicks have become. Hamiltonian or Jeffersonian, Brown is one of the hounding fathers. He's sure to be on the tail that, after going 33-49 this season, ought to be between each Knick's legs.
One thing eating at Brown is that he has been a fired coach for the last year. "People tell me I could have it comfortable just doing the clinics and the TV," he says. "But I know it's not the thing I do best." That thing, of course, is one letter longer than a four-letter word.
