I need some REAL good news.

I donít give a fuk about Lonzo or any other ball for that matter.

You want good news? Change teams.

The 2 idiots running and ruining this franchise need to be held accountable and shit canned out the door.

Once again they've just thrown a bunch of players together and hoped for the best.

This team just sucks as I've been saying all year.

I think Kerr knows what he's talking about.
If the Knicks are good it ups the media attention and prestige of the whole league.

The NBA has been doing quite well, but the League is stronger and grows bigger when there are competitive teams in LALakerville, NYK, BOS and to a lesser extent CHI.

It's great when small-market teams do well.  But the Spurs and now Bucks and for a while OKC just don't drive the league and up the hype factor like LAL, NYK, BOS can.  Tradition + Big Market simply pushes the needle further.

Otherwise rivalries are good for the NBA.  If BOS-PHI becomes a thing in playoff fights, that'll be good.   The two LA teams doing battle post-season would be good too.  If Knick were good, Knix-Celts, Knix-'6ers, Knix-BKY could be big stuff.  Alas and alack.

Agreed - look no further than Yankees/Red Sox rivalry which doesn't just draw their fans but lots of "baseball" fans. As a Mets fan, I hate the Yankees but used to watch that rivalry.

Yankees-Dodgers World Series would break the bank and be great for baseball.

So it appears that the Golden State Warriors won Twit of the Year honors last night - well done.

PS: Frank is up and down. 


You're a genius...how bout this, the kid is a basic role player who essentially is a 1st round bust.

Griffin was on a flight to New York to meet with Mills, when, according to sources, he saw a news alert that the Knicks had signed Tim Hardaway Jr. to a four-year, $71 million contract. If he were to accept the job, Griffin realized, he'd have to answer for a hefty contract he had no say in.

He went ahead with the flight and meeting but removed his name from consideration shortly thereafter.

After Mills' presence played a significant part in the Griffin talks falling apart, he sold Dolan a far less accomplished candidate: new Sacramento Kings VP of Basketball Operations Scott Perry.


As much as folks have an eye on 12/15....it really might be best if Mills weren't allowed to oversee a single further transaction for this club.

Griffin..now there's a smart man...I can't expect Dolan will stick with Mills much longer. Gone before January ends.

Knicks have been directed to lose

How else do you explain

Frank - 1 assist in 18 minutes - outplayed and still starting both halves
Dennis - 0 assists in 14 minutes
Elfrid -  FOUR assists in 12 minutes

Too fucking funny... how about this for an explanation. Your team as currently constituted sucks regardless if you believe otherwise.

New coach, same players, same ugly result.

This team plays no defense and can't score. Not much else to it.

True or false -

Given Knicks personnel, NY should have more than 4 wins right now.

I would think maybe a few more, and I get that you are dumping on Fizzy, but given the very personnel you are calling out, they didn't have the horses to close those tight games so your question/point makes no sense.....we are worst in the NBA across the board in almost every category that counts.

If Dolan convinced that Mills and/or Perry needs to go, why would he wait until the end of the season?
Maybe he wants to wait to see if  candidates become available, or can be made available, but I also worry about a desperate GM or president making boneheaded decisions, swinging for the fences to save their jobs.

I think Dolan has seen the light and is ready to reassign or move Mills altogether as many are starting to report. I think it will be after the season ends.

Love this fucking article and everything it has to say...cowards as i called them earlier

https://nypost.com/2019/12/07/steve-mills-scott-perry-hide-in-growing-knicks-atrocity/

I understand the "Palace intrigue" and i want Mills gone (and perhaps Perry too) but they can't fire themselves.   They played the card they had to play, but it was theirs to play.  The move almost paid immediate dividends. Let's give it time. We gave the last guy 100 games.

Hey I hope Miller succeeds....i love a feel good story and hope someday in the future he's the star of an ESPN 30 for 30. Problem is these motherfuckers left him alone to handle the press during a time when the organization needs to show leadership.

Let me say this again....They left a G league coach with limited NBA experience deal with a huge press conference full of hungry reporters looking for answers on the direction of the team, etc...fucking gutless sacks of shit.

Talent to win or compete every night? I just don't see it. Give me some of that crack you guys are smoking.

Stats don't lie either. Neither does the record.

Last in FG%, Points Scored and Assists.

This team is not good.

Shame on Mills & Perry.

Stupid me I forgot to add LAST IN FT% TOO

Mike Miller is now in a very unenviable position of having to save Mills & Perry with a shit roster. Working for these rats has to be unsettling knowing Mills will shove a dagger up your ass at any point. Pretty sure he would be hailed as a hero across the NBA if he said "thanks, but no thanks" and walked away.


Wont be too long til you are saying that..."well. Miller has Payton, Fiz didnt" - or "Mitch isnt fouling as much" - or, "well, Julius ls smarter" - or "well...Fiz gave Frank his confidence" (everything Frank does well, like with Mudiay, will be Fiz's doing).  Anything to say it was not coach Fiz's fault.

Then when (if, I should say - see Woodson, Chaney, Herb.....) Fiz gets another job and is 3 games over .500 you can whine how we should have cut him slack and been patient - unless of course we NAIL the next hire - then who cares?

Not sure I have any idea what point you're trying to make here. I wasn't a fan of Fiz.. my point is Mills and Perry did not put together a good collection of talent. People can debate that but that's just my opinion. And to think that this team was going to be competitive is really ridiculous. Mills and Perry are scurrying like rats on a sinking ship right now. Anything to save their own lives. It looks ugly and cowardly.

Dolan's deep pockets are part of the problem.
Knix throw money at everything, looking for shortcuts, instead of patiently building an organization and chemistry.   For both front office and roster.  It's always about bringing in a flashy marketable name.

Simply, hands-off Dolan isn't enough if you put idiots in charge.
(Phil wasn't an idiot, just a dinosaur looking to cash in on Dolanbucks)

Completely agree - but I'd rather have a deep pocketed owner than a cheap one (see NY Mets)...

But here's the real problem, Mills & Perry obviously sold Dolan on Plan B and when the shit went south they hung Fizzy out to dry to save their asses. A guy that they hand-picked! Not that the idiot didn't deserve it, but this team lacks talent at almost every position and that's on Mills/Perry.

We are rebuilding, we are young, we were expected to be terrible.
