What and Irony...

"The Allan Houston Rule"

In the NEW YORK TIMES, Howard Beck writes that "Allan Houston, whose name became nearly synonymous with a new rule aimed at unloading expensive players, will be spared when the league's so-called amnesty deadline passes tonight." The "Knicks had considered waiving Houston to save about $40 million in luxury taxes on his salary. But in a curious twist, the rule will not claim its namesake as a victim. Instead, the Knicks will waive a spare power forward, either Jerome Williams or Malik Rose, sometime today."
