NOTES: In S.F., Bruce Jenkins wrote it takes a "particularly vicious nature to stage a personal vendetta against" Warriors Exec VP/Basketball Operations Chris Mullin, but Warriors President Robert Rowell "has managed" to do so. Rowell is on a "big-time power trip, spinning wildly beyond all reason." If Rowell "really wants someone else in Mullin's seat," he could have "shown some class, quietly letting Mullin's contract expire at season's end." But Rowell instead has "chosen to portray Mullin as a clown," making sure to "publicly ridicule Mullin's stance" when announcing a suspension for Warriors G Monta Ellis (S.F. CHRONICLE, 11/8)....In St. Paul, Charley Walters reported the T'Wolves could "play exhibition games in China in two years," as Owner Glen Taylor has become NBA BOG Chair and is an "influential member of the league's China committee" (ST. PAUL PIONEER PRESS, 11/7).
