NBA Notes

-There's a rumor goin' round that the New York Knickerbockers are going to fire head coach Larry Brown and pay him a $40 million buyout. If so, that would amount to $2 million per win in total payments .

Since Knickerbocker is a name taken from a Washington Irving novel to indicate one who is a native New Yorker, I would recommend that they change the team name to the Rip Van Winkles and shorten it to the New York Winkles. As an alternative, since the British term for underwear is 'knickers', they may also want to use the name, Pantywaists.

What a mess.

-Former Badger Devon Harris is making his mark for the Dallas Mavericks. Since he left Wisconsin a year early for the NBA, I will still root for the Spurs. David Robinson's shadow still looms large.
