Hey, remember when the Knicks foolishly and hilariously tried to re-hire Zeke? Sure you do. Well, Stern says that was his bad for not stopping them sooner. From the NY Post: In a sitdown with four New York writers in Paris as the Knicks flew back to New York, Stern fessed up. ‘It’s fair to say I missed the issue,’ Stern said. ‘I told them they can do it. And when it was announced, my guy said it’s not allowed. I blew that one pretty good. It didn’t comply with our rules and ultimately wouldn’t have complied with NCAA rules.’”
