I guess "And 1" is the same in German.
Amazing series. Each game so far a team has led 3-1. Each game that team has lost 4-3. Series tied at 2!
Gary Neal pump fakes, Wade bites but rather than shoot he passes to CDR?
Can Michael Jordan sign himself, sell majority share and check into the game in 20 seconds?
Kemba's upset Shabazz goes to bed hungry.
Only way that could not be a flagrant is if officials thought McRoberts was protecting himself putting his arms in front. Still should be
Kemba had a 2-footer that went in and out. Is Anthony really suggesting he should've pulled it out?
Saw Beno briefly in Memphis today. Said he was having fun. "It'd been a while," he said.
I think you could tie cinder blocks to Big Al's legs and he would still drop 25.
Could've sworn it was barbecue sauce.
Broncos/Patriots back-to-back in Weeks 6 & 7 for Jets? Oh swell. http://t.co/T7wuElkfMh
Correcting date of highest-rated Nets game on YES. It was 2/5/13 against the Lakers, not 2/15/13.
YES says Game 2 of Raptors-Nets was its No. 2 rated and No. 2 most-viewed game of all time. Lakers-Nets on 2/15/13 holds both records.
Phil on Melo re-sign: If it’s in the cards, man are we fortunate. If it’s not in the cards, man are we fortunate. We’re going forward anyway

So if Kidd cursed about Toronto, he had a better chance of getting away with it than when Masai did about Brooklyn.
Jason Kidd conf call included someone who seemed at Penn Station and someone playing music, so if Kidd said anything bad, we didn't hear it.
One more Phil Zen koan: I just want to say there is no news to give you. Everything I have to give you is past.
Not a single vote for a Knick for most improved player, 1st, 2nd or 3rd place, which is accurate and explains a lot.
Phil talked about Tim Duncan taking less money to keep the Spurs together and mentioned the Big Three in Miami sacrificing millions.
Phil said Jeanne Buss tried to talk him into coaching Knicks in recent weeks - lowest-risk for him - but he said can't do it physically.
BTW, Phil Jackson is a grown up who answers questions intelligently and reasonably honestly.
I get that he has the track record of meddling too much, but that would be his right. And Phil would still be completely over the bball side
If Phil came in saying he wanted bball autonomy, Dolan could give him that & still have questions about making other changes. He's the owner
... the medical staff, or over PR stuff, I'd still think Dolan was keeping his word. Really debatable as to whether those are bball issues.
With regards to Phil's answer on Dolan being true to his word, I trust that to be true. But even if Phil and Dolan are negotiating over...
Jackson on Steve Kerr: "Philosophically we have a strong connection.''
Jackson on new coach: “We get caught up in replicating what others do. I’m not looking for a coach to do that.’’
Jackson said he hopes Carmelo is "true to his word'' and considers taking paycut to give them flexibility like Miami guys did.
Phil Zen on Melo: "If it's in the cards man are we fortunate. If it's not in the cards, man are we fortunate and we're going forward anyway.
Jackson said Jeanie Buss suggested last week he coach the team because it's less risk. He said he's just not healthy enough.
So if Melo re-signs: Phil said, "man are we fortunate." if he doesn't: "man are we fortunate... and we're moving forward."
Phil said he's all about "moving forward. ...
I really like asking this dude questions, by the way. Generally makes what he's saying or getting at quite clear.
Jackson says Jeanie Buss recently tried to talk him into coaching. Why does she want him to coach? “Lower risk,” he said. But still says no.
Phil said he "made up his mind" and he will not coach. Also cited physical reasons.
Phil, on whether he was serious when Jeanie Buss said he should coach: "Yes. [She said it was] lower risk," than being Knicks president.
Asked Phil whether he sees Shumpert as filling Ron Harper-type role as ballhandling guard. Said not necessarily, bc NBA is smaller now
One thing about Carmelo taking a pay cut, he can also do that with Chicago, Miami and Houston. Plus, he'd be joining a contender.
Phil confirms the notion that he wants and needs to convince Carmelo to take less
Phil says he'll work with his next head coach to assemble a staff and that they both will have veto power.
Phil said he and the head coach will decide the staff. He will let the head coach pick, but Phil ultimately will have veto power.
Jackson said he told the players after the season finale “there will be changes.” But he can’t say yet how much change will be made.
Phil says Carmelo talked to him about taking a pay cut to help the club. Hopes that he "is true to his word."
Phil said he hopes Carmelo Anthony "stays true to his word" and be willing to take less to give Knicks more flexibility.
Phil says he hopes Carmelo will "stay true to his word" by potentially taking less. "That's the beginning of team play," he says.
Asked Phil about Carmelo's salary, and whether he'd need to take less. He immediately brings up Tim Duncan, and the Big 3 in Miami.
Phil hints the hiring of a coach could be a long process.
Phil said wants coach before summer league but that is only timetable. First indicated hiring could happen in next month
Jackson reiterated he has no plans to coach.
Lance does sulking standing. Removed, he parked in front of owner, Bird, Walsh, away f/mates who won w/out him. How stupid does he look now!
Jackson says there's no timetable on the coaching decision other than fact that he'd like to have someone coaching the summer-league team
Jackson said Jim Dolan "has been loyal to that promise" of letting him be in charge of all basketball decisions.
Phil says Dolan "has been very true to his word" in terms of leaving bball decisions up to him.
Phil says Jim Dolan has been loyal to his promise to allow him to run the basketball operations.
Phil says hiring a GM/front-office guru isn't a priority for now. Confirms report about Clarence Gaines working alongside him for now
Phil said "it's not a priority" to hire anyone in front office now. Mentioned Clarence Gaines Jr has been working for Knicks for 2 was.
