Any minute now — if he hasn't, already, on some sort of social-networking device — shooting guard Shannon Brown will announce he's returning to the Lakers rather than signing with the Knicks. It's difficult to blame him: The Knicks offered him a one-year deal for $2.7 million — so they wouldn't mess with the next round of free-agency begging — and the Lakers just won two titles and have a rather solid shot at a third. We're a little surprised Brown was even considering leaving. Anyway, HoopsWorld said yesterday that Carmelo Anthony won't be signing an extension with the Nuggets this summer, so hey, guys, this season, the Knicks get to be a little better and still have likely unrealistic hopes for the future. Win-win? Yes? Who's with us? Roger Mason Jr., that's who.
