CAN'T TELL THE PLAYERS ...
What was the Knicks' public relations department thinking?
After several weeks of sweeping organizational changes in which Isiah
Thomas was named team president before trading for native New York point guard
a good idea to update the team's 2003-04 media guide.
The slick 21-page supplement arrived yesterday from the printer and was
distributed to the media in the press room at the Knicks' practice facility in
Greenburgh, N.Y. Just one problem. It already was out of date because of the
Tim Thomas and Nazr Mohammed.
Both newcomers should be in uniform tonight at Madison Square Garden when
the latest incarnation of the 2003-04 Knicks takes the court against Detroit.
With the NBA trading deadline approaching on Thursday, the Knicks' public
relations department would be well-advised to hold off a couple of days before
making plans for a second sequel to the media guide. - Greg Logan

everyone missed the other big story ... hell freezing over."
