So why are the Knicks villains here? They accepted a trade they worked hard in concluding, they ensured Mobley didn't dire on their watch, they didn't get a trade exception (because???), and Mobley's contract can be traded *see: KVH and Cuban).

Oh, wait, because ESPN (who hate the Knicks as much as the NBA does) didn't understand it until a year later?

Hello. Mobley's contract +#8 to memphis for Rubio, Darko, and Marko.

Keith Van Horn was a completely different scenario.

He was never offered a contract by the Mavs yet they still had his rights. The Mavs WAIVED a player to sign KVH for what they could (i think 4 million vs the 800K guy they cut) and then traded him to NJ.

KVH was not injured and was able to attempt to play for NJ even though that was never his intent. Essentially KVH was paid 4 mil to fly to New Jersey.

Mobley is not medically cleared to play for NYK and has publically retired via press conference and the OTL piece. The CBA expressly states that a player who has retired can not be traded unless their is a likelyhood that they can resume their career.

That is not the case with Mobley.

Good story, watch TV, recap it and call it news? Does Newsdays' news reporters watch CNN then write about it and even give them credit for the story? Alan, the Post is not writing enough to keep your editor happy, so calling your TV a source is solid jounalism. WOW!! only in a Dolan controlled paper.
