Amazing arrogance in D'Antoni: "I have no problem with Stud and Antony looking for each other as long as they don't overdo it." My goodness, what a personage.

T.K Marks writes:

In a pre-game tv interview D'Antoni did something that the certain star player(s) could very easily take as a gratuitous and not-so-subtle slight. Pointedly claimed that the Knicks' recent bouts of ineffectiveness originate from a lack of "intensity" in the lockerroom, whose custodian of such is presumably part of the job description of one or both of the two guys getting paid $20m/per, and not his own on-court strategies and schemas. That would seem to invite antagonism between himself and certain parties. Found it unduly undiplomatic.

Must say though Uncle Howie is rather perspicacious in these NBA matters. He's been touting the potential of the Nets' nucleus all along. As I had not seen the Nets perform at all yet this season couldn't get over the stellar talent of their big kid, Lopez, and that newly acquired point guard, Deron Williams. That team would appear to be a few players away from being a very formidable outfit.

    this may be controversial and so off topic but…with regard to Livermore taking his life, I believe when an individual is ready to die he/she should be able to do so at any point in time. We should Really have a euthanasia for humans so that they can manage and control that Very important part of life that we Neglect in American society. Not that a young person, who wants an easy way out should be allowed, but I know that the people in the future will look back and think how we mismanaged end of life decisions in the past. Just thinking about my own death as I so often do at the age of 27, seems not healthy to some but I am so much wiser than those around me.

    Valuing life without valuing death is the lie that permeates American and European societies. In stark contrast death is valued more than life in radical Islam. I believe that the truth lies in the middle and one should value both equally. I believe this lie, more than any other makes markets inefficient. ie public not short stocks and not acknowledging death, just being ephemeral…
