Knicks Sell Possibility of Kevin Durant; Costas Talks(Podcast)

Scott Soshnick, Michael Barr and Eben Novy-Williams discuss a host of issues related to the business of sports, including the New York Knicks’ use of a picture of Kevin Durant in a pitch to season-ticket holders. The NBA team then deleted the picture to avoid any perception that it was using the photo as an inducement to the impending free agent. The Knicks said it was commonplace for teams to use game action photos in promotional material. The Knicks have been mentioned as a possible landing pad for the Golden State Warriors star and former MVP, who has said he’s tired of free-agent speculation. Also discussed is broadcaster Bob Costas’s take that he was removed from the Super Bowl telecast because of his comments regarding football and head trauma. Also talked about was the debut of the Alliance of American football, which posted a strong TV rating for its inaugural games. The season lasts 10 weeks.
