New Suns coach Lindsey Hunter didn’t fear challenging Larry Brown with Pistons


Vince Ellis of the Detroit Free Press:

"Prince recalled Hunter’s vocal leadership during the title season when coach Larry Brown would seek his counsel."He always spoke his mind, especially when Larry Brown was our coach," Prince said. "Coach would always ask Lindsey … whether Coach Brown thought it was the right idea or the wrong idea, he just wanted to hear it from his perspective because Lindsey got so much knowledge. He played the game that long and had been through so many things.""

Remember when one of John Kuester’s big head-coaching qualifications was that he didn’t fear challenging Larry Brown while an assistant with the Pistons? Good luck, Lindsey!
