Brown is in a much more powerful position than he was the first time as Cleveland coach, when he was catering to LeBron a lot. The front office brought him back, it knows him and it invested in him. He has a good base defensively. He'll be good with a young team because he's a teacher. I don't know if anybody would copy his game offensively. With his previous teams, a lot of times an offensive possession came down to somebody bailing him out at the end of the shot clock because they'd tried what he wanted to do and it didn't work. But people learn, and maybe he'll come up with new ideas or something he believes in more.
