Today in Sports History: July 28

In 2005, the New York Knicks hired Larry Brown as head coach. The Knicks lured Brown from the successful Detroit Pistons with a five-year, $50 million contract. Brown won his first championship with the Pistons when they defeated the Lakers in 2004. Brown got his 1,000th win while coaching the Knicks but was fired after less than a single season. He was fired after the team’s poor 23-59 record in 2006.
