Just a state of Knicks address, I'd guess.

Mills spoke! Looked nervous but reiterated the commitment to a youth movement. Perry sounds enthusiastic, talking about his father, Dad, what a privilege to be the GM of the Knicks. Emphasizing enthusiasm, likes the young core. Great opportunity to do special things.

Hornacek emphasizing defense first, arent just going to try and outscore the other team.

He is saying the right things. I don't think of him as a defense first coach though.
I've seen scant proof that a majestic aura trumps a sound plan, but maybe that's just because I wasn't looking at Phil Jackson... Seth Rosenthal 2014

Jeff wants a scrappy team, diving for loose balls, taking defense personally.

Perry "you have to live culture every day" not just fancy press releases.

Perry with a good point on culture - you can have all the slogans you want, but it comes down to individual behaviors day in and day out. He gets it.
Patience with the rebuild, keep all the picks, no starphucks, and team-first attitude. Marinate a couple years and we're playing like the '72 team. Championship here we come!

Bondy: "Could you possibly see a buyout with Melo happening?"
Mills: "No."

Jeff did try to get the team to think like that.
He called them out.
Yelled at them.
In the end they weren't able to respond.

Think conclusion Jeff came to with PJ at the time was that the team didn't have talent.

Now with Baker, Nti, Hardaway. Dotson in the backcourt, they feel they can be more active.
They may feel they can defend like that even more if they move Melo for a young 3.

That is awesome. No reason for a buyout. The Knicks lose big in that scenario.

The more you talk about culture more it will go down. Best to never speak about and just expect what you want. Telling other about culture and all that just gives media fuel. This to me is just a waste of a press conference.

Mills said he is giving room for Perry to make decisions.

The Knicks are known for having the worst culture in the league, no way avoiding that subject at a press conference with reporters asking about the culture.

Mills said he would pick Frank over DSJ. Not in those words.

Perry wants to bring in a veteran PG to mentor Frank.
