Ebony and Ivory

Isiah Thomas. Larry Brown. It's the story that keeps on giving:
Larry Brown is seeking a $53.5-million payoff from the Knicks for firing him after only one season as the team's coach. Along with the $41 million that remained on the original five-year contract he signed last summer, Brown is asking for an additional 25 percent of the original value of the $50-million contract - an additional $12.5 million - as "liquidated damages" as a result of the firing.
And if that weren't enough:
Commissioner David Stern is expected to serve as an arbitrator between the sides Friday in Manhattan.
Let the good times roll.
