    Most appeals fail but the appeal does put the arbitrators decision on hold until the appeal is denied or upheld. I would expect a decision on the appeal before July 1 the day FAs can start negotiations.

    But, don't get your hopes too high folks, the NBA will probably appeal the ruling which means nothing's guaranteed yet. However, we just got a little closer to signing Nash or an other valuable veteran PG that would improve our backcourt.

    The NBA are appealing the decision, but there's not much time before July 1, so most likely it will all work out in our favour.

    Great news for the Knicks!

    I was just reading the CBA rules for appeals and it could take a couple of months before a decision is rendered. The NBA has 10 days to file an appeal, an appeals panel has to be selected, both sides get to argue their cases and then the appeals panel has 30 days to render a decision.

    In the mean time any award is stayed with a filing of a timely appeal until a decision is made by the appeals panel. Looks to me the Knicks could get screwed if Lin and Novak get deals offered by other teams and any FAs we are interested in would have to wait until the appeal is decided on.

    Here's hoping the NBAPA has some sort of plan to file tampering charges if the NBA tries to pull this tactic to force teams to use their MLE regardless. Honestly I can't see why the NBA is so dead set that waived players can't keep their bird right. If they had felt so strongly about it they should of crammed it down the players throats like they did everything else this last CBA.

    Wow, this is tremendous news for our franchise. Finally something to get excited about. Watching Lebron, Wade & Bosh dancing on the sidelines last night was almost more than I could bear.

    I wonder if Nash would sign for a MLE to join the Knicks? He would be a Godsend for this team. If not I would love to target Ray Allen, we need another reliable shooter other than just Novak. That would help to spread the floor tremendously inside for STAT & Melo to do their thing, not to mention open up a ton of lanes for Lin to penetrate & dish.

    The NBA will appeal this but how much damage can they do?

    Great news for Lin, Novak, and the Knicks! Now we're sure to lock up one more quality player through free agency! And if JR picks up his option.... We're gonna be STACKED!

    My thoughts exactly. Nash is the best passer in the NBA and Ray Allen is the greatest shooter of all time! Con't go wrong with any one of them.

    Stern got the league thinking backwards.
    The league would gain by waive players having their Birds Rights....
    teams could gain a option by negotiating sign n trade for restricted and unrestricted (waive) FA.
    What if Billups dont want to stay in L.A., the Clippers would be able to get him more money in a sign n trade.

    There are 2 issues here...The first is just $$$$...With this new interpretation, teams will be paying more money to players, since they will have more breathing room under the cap. More teams with cap room=larger offers for available talent...So if you were going to evaluate each team as a business, this decision just lowered the value of each team, since now their costs are going up

    The second issue is the big market vs small market thing...Obviously this ruling favors the larger markets, since they are the ones with the money available to go above the cap room. The league is trying everything it can to create balance, and wants to create an environment where small market teams can compete.
