There are any number of extraordinary stories in sportsworld this week, and most of them have to do with money. First and foremost is the turmoil surrounding the NBA where a very ugly scenario has developed involving an attempt by agents to decertify the Players Association and take total control of the economics of the game. Late Tuesday night came word that a new agreement has been reached by the League and the Players Association, but it remains to be seen if Michael Jordan, Patrick Ewing and their puppet masters will accept it.
