In fairness to the coaches who once played for Phil Jackson, none of them had Michael, Pippen, Kobe or Shaq on their teams.

However... BOS owns BKN's pick. PHX owns WAS pick. And CHA owns POR pick.

Howard Beck

Better summation: BKN picks 17th, WAS 18th, CHI 19th, TOR 20th, POR 24th, HOU 25th, MIA 26th.

HOU then won tiebreaker w/MIA.

NBA will study new options for structuring/seeding playoffs. But Silver says, "No one was advocating a particular change right now."

Knicks had their own Jordan Rule - on the whiteboard the letters "FMJ" - which you can figure out.

Scott Cacciola

And JR got in trouble for untying shoelaces!

Steve Popper

Of course, nice thing about covering Daly, Fitch, JVG was being able to learn a lot from them. Not so much of that allowed w/Knicks now.

Steve Popper

I'm old - but feel very privileged to have covered teams coached by Chuck Daly, Jeff Van Gundy, Bill Fitch and Pat Riley. Oh, and Cal.

Steve Popper

Carmelo Anthony has a decision to make - and even as he loves NY hints laid out today don't sound good for Knicks: bit.ly/1hZRQgm

Alan Hahn

Admit it, you'd love a Laimbeer on your team. Any star would. But in today's game, where everyone is friends? Not sure.

Chris Herring

I feel ignorant and young as ever for not even knowing about that comment about Bird. Had never heard it.

Steve Popper

I'd imagine Kevin Garnett is watching this Bad Boys 30 for 30 and asking J-Kidd, "So wait, I can punch guys in the head in the playoffs?"

Alan Hahn

Today, Isiah would be dubbed a guy who "can't win" and movement to fire Daly would rage into the offseason. Instead, they grew from it.

Alan Hahn

Think about the bad pass by Isiah, Laimbeer doesn't come to ball and Daly laments failure to call timeout. Then think of Twitter reacting.

Steve Popper

I thought Knicks and Bulls games were rough during the JVG era - but with Bad Boys, punching guys in the head not an ejectable offense.

Steve Popper

Watching Bad Boys on ESPN. Let's just say the game was refereed different. But despite the fouls, know this - @Rick Mahorn is a great guy.

Alan Hahn

Parrish slugs Laimbeer twice in the face. Cleans his clock. "There were not ejections."

Chris Herring

Trying to imagine how LeBron would react to a hard foul from Laimbeer or Mahorn. **does not compute**

Alan Hahn
