Are the Knicks padding player's salaries?: Ads involving Allen Houston and Spree probably get the star players some coin, but is that cash counted against the salary cap? Probably not...

Okay...but why? The Knicks are already COMPLETELY over the cap. Houston is the most overpaid basketball player in the league at the moment. They're probably just trying to keep the fans interested in the Knicks, who were an absolute disgrace this past season.

Thanks for bringing this to my attention - I'd love it if the tabloids picked up on this story. Remember when Mark Cuban wasn't allowed to let Dennis Rodman stay at his guest house? This strikes me as the exact same. Pity for Spree and Allen - AOL/TWC owns everything!
