LOST MEMORY: In N.Y., Phil Mushnick noted in a week "lousy with perversity, it stood to perverse reason that the death of Philadelphia's Joe Frazier, a champion so unfairly regarded and poorly treated during his boxing career, would be relegated to an also-ran story by the across-state Penn State saga." Mushnick: "Too many Frazier tributes and stories and memories went unspoken and unwritten, unheard and unread" (N.Y. POST, 11/13).
NOTES: A source said that NBA reality show "The Association" has contacted the Knicks about being the subject of its third season. The Knicks "intrigue NBA TV because of the newly transformed Garden and their transformed team" (N.Y. POST, 11/13)....Among the top 10 video games sold in the U.S. in October, "NBA 2K12" -- from Take 2 -- was third, while "Madden NFL 12" and "FIFA Soccer 3" -- both from Electronic Arts -- were seventh and 10th, respectively (LATIMES.com, 11/11).
