The highly anticipated arbitration hearing between the NBA and its Players Union was held yesterday. Though no decision was immediately made, with whom the arbitrator sides will undoubtedly be a huge factor in the Knicks' offseason plans.Should the Players Union win, players like Jeremy Lin and Steve Novak will retain their Bird Rights heading into free agency. Thus, the Knicks would not have to dip into their Midlevel Exception to sign either one. If the arbitrator sides with the league, however, the team's exception will almost surely be solely dedicated to Lin. They would then need to get creative in order to re-sign Novak.While retaining Lin and Novak, both of whom who electrified the Big Apple last season, is priority number one, New York is hoping to be able to sign both and still save the MLE to bring in more talent.With a plethora of veteran players available this summer, the Knicks could look to fill certain voids, bringing in a backup point guard, a veteran shootin...

We all can recall that epic Jeff Van Gundy rant about flopping a few months ago and most certainly have a very opinionated view on flopping, but what about David Stern? David Stern has addressed the topic of flopping and has said the competition committee will discuss flopping at its next meeting on June 18th, but [...]

Another rumble in the jungle T..
Jim Rome interviewed NBA Commissioner David Stern yesterday on his radio show and asked him the simple question “Is the NBA Draft Lottery fixed?” Stern gave two answers. “No.” and “Do you still beat your wife?” You have to respect Romey for asking the tough questions.

Uh...a professional sports commissioner should know better than to get into a silly argument/debate with a talk radio host.
Especially when that host is trying to take the high road and ask a question that quite a few people want to know the answer to.

I was a mere child when the Dream Team changed the basketball landscape. My good friend Joe Ruiz suggested live tweeting the documentary, but I needed more than 140 characters. With that in mind, here’s a running diary on the documentary about greatest team ever assembled. Spoiler alert: Charles Barkley is entertaining.

I'm pretty sure that most NBA players don't normally go on scavengers hunts but that's exactly what happened last night to Pacers center Roy Hibbert and Knicks guard Jeremy Lin.It happened on last night's episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live "Game Time" as they played a game of "Skype Scavenger Hunt" and it was pretty classic to say the least:
