Glory days, how they'll pass you by. In 1995, Pat Riley, now known here as "Pat the Rat" for deserting the Knicks, returned as coach of the Miami Heat, setting off a classic feeding frenzy with strung-out media packed in a sauna-like broom closet for the postgame news conference, which was interrupted by a resounding crash when a folding table collapsed under the weight of the TV cameramen who had climbed on it.

"I know what I'm needing And I don't want to waste more time, I'm in a New York state of mind" -- Billy Joel, "New York State of Mind" Unfortunately, for the local NBA team, it's more like a police state of mind. This was a bad week even for the Knicks, with teammates voting not to take Stephon Marbury back after he jumped the team, Coach Isiah Thomas overriding them, the team quitting on Thomas and Madison Square Garden ringing with chants of "Fire Isiah!"

Cablevision Systems Corp. agreed to operate the Voom satellite TV service until March 31, giving Chairman Charles Dolan more time to buy the business. Cablevision's board approved the agreement, delaying a shutdown of the service, the Bethpage, N.Y.-based company said. Dolan, who last week ousted three directors for opposing his plans, will pay for costs incurred by the service that exceed expenses related to a shutdown.
