Marv Albert told Steve Kerr that it 'never ends well' and 'there is no happiness' with Knicks at Garden nydn.us/1jksjVQ


Yup. Next thing you know, you're in a hotel room, wearing panties and biting "lovers". We didn't forget, Marv. Lol

After the Clippers get eliminated, you might hear them go off on Sterling. Doc has kept them focused on basketball. I always admired Doc as a player and coach and now realize he is truly a great man.

You should have to wait until the player actually hits you before you fall down to take a charge.

I can't believe I read the name Luke Walton being mentioned. The dude that played for the lakers for a little while then went to Cleveland and then...?

@SheSaidSpikeWho It's funny how Marv acts like his guilty plea to a crime never occurred.  And wasn't it Dolan who gave him his first job afterward, during a time when none of the major television networks would touch him?  What a self absorbed louse he's turned out to be.

@brookdon  I dont know what else CP3 needs to get over the hump.  If they indeed lose this game

@SheSaidSpikeWho  I think the media is just trolling us with half of these candidates.. Phil would never higher Walton to run the Knicks. Especially now. Haha. Right?

@rgm891  

I read an interview with him and he wanted to be a rugby player, which is a pretty rough and non-stop sport. Also he keeps everyone loose in the locker room. They like him. He was drafted with a pick from the James Harden trade.

Very athletic; runs the floor like a guard.  But also cool to see someone who is completely comfortable playing within his dirty-work role.

@SheSaidSpikeWho  

Yes!  Love it.  We need a coach willing to TEACH.

Certain media members and talking heads told us that Phil is limiting his search solely to those within his "small circle" of triangle disciples...yet Hoiberg is on the radar and Stack has already been interviewed (presumably for an assistant position).

@1harris1 @OLDKNICKI suppose what will happen is a long drawn out legal battle between the NBA's attorneys and those representing Sterling. Commissioner Silver took a hard line approach, and now its merits and legality will be tested. Will the Clippers players and coaches, close ranks and ask to be allowed to become free agents. Is there such a basis for that to happen, as some have suggested may happen? I'm glad the Clippers are out of the playoffs. Good riddance. Sterling is a decrepit old fool, and his biases go beyond his words, it has been suggested in suits against him for housing discrimination.

I don't know if Griffin is the difference maker people make him out to be, but that's a debate for a different day.

@illmatix @rgm891  The NBA has its hands tied for sure in terms of the Sterling BS. I would do whatever I could to leave that franchise if he's still around. I have a sad feeling this is going to last a while.
