In recent years, Larry Brown has been the conservative, "straight-laced" coach of the NBA Philadelphia 76ers, Detroit Pistons, and New York Knicks.

But back in his 1970's ABA coaching days with the Carolina Cougars and the Denver Nuggets, Brown was known around the league as the "Modfather."

He was very fond of wearing Oshkosh B'Gosh farmers' overalls (above left) to games and press conferences. And check out Brown yelling at the refs in his groovy rainbow sweater (above right)!
