But at least it was money well spent for the Knicks

They of the league-leading 19,723,946 dollaroonis owed in 2007-08 luxury tax.  Because really, what 27th-place team doesn't look to spend just under an extra mil per win?  Oh, Jimmy Dolan and Zeke Thomas! You lil' scamps!

For those wondering, the Lakers were #7 with a bullet, their tab coming in at just over five mil (or as BK and I call it, "one month's pay").  Something to think about as decisions will be made on potentially Golden State-bound Ronny Turiaf, Sasha Vujacic, James Posey, Brent Barry, Kurt Thomas or any other free agent the Purple and Gold are currently eyeing.
