Re: In Rod we Trust...again

The league was looking at loopholes. Dallas felt that because Rod has so much respect with the NBA, he'll get the lowdown of how to make the bare-minimum necessities work without this being on hold.

"It's a daunting task to get a deal like this done, there's so many other things going on. It's a lot to rewrite the constitution in five minutes, but that's what they're really doing."

The league's foremost legal expert, Joel Litvin, put it this way Saturday night: "We have some black and white rules, and we love those rules, but there are a lot of areas involving circumvention where (you examine whether) they are engaged in a transaction that is meant to circumvent the intent of the parties."

The Nets could sympathize. Thorn himself sounded fed up with with the whole convoluted process yesterday, barely leaving the door open to some closure.

"Anything's possible," he said, when asked whether the deal could be passed along to the league office today. "But from where I'm sitting right now, I don't see it.
It's all Thorn.
"This isnít any different than the kid in your neighborhood who took over his dadís hardware store ó the one thatís been in town for 60 years, the one that everyone loved ó and ran it into the ground. The Knicks are that hardware store. I hate to break it to you. People keep expecting that Dolan will get the hang of owning the Knicks. Itís never going to happen."muwu

Re: In Rod we Trust...again

Thorn continues to swindle GMs of the league. I still don't know how he got them to agree to two draft picks and cash. I kinda feel sorry for the Mavs if they don't win it all. To top all that the Mavs gave up, they still have to give Kidd an extension. If they don't win it all within the next two years, that team is in trouble
