Prepared to keep him if no good deal, plan on getting a veteran PG in the next few weeks.

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.

Talk about culture with the one that blow everything out of proportion. That's going to help set the culture straight. Ridiculous if that is the topic of discussion. The reason you don't talk about culture is you can't predict player behavior. The player behavior dictates management behavior. When you discuss culture to the public then management is setting itself up for failure.

Culture is nothing but the collection of individual behaviors. What they are saying by focusing on culture is that they will not recruit, support, or enable me-first players. They want to build a team, which requires individual players to play within a team concept. When you get players on board with that and executing a team game on the floor you will see success and that is the culture change they are looking to enact.

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!

Mills seems slimmy as usual. Noticed Perry looking at Mills after responding. As though looking for approval and making sure he did not say anything wrong. Seems like this will be the same ole Mills/Dolan show.

I think its too early to assume that. They haven't spent all that much time together, and they want to make sure that they speak as an one voice going forward. I believe Mills will let Perry work. Except for bringing in his own people, Im guessing he will have as much say as Griffin would if he were given the job with autonomy over personnel decisions.

Putting the house cleaning issue aside, I think the main reason Mills wants final say is because he wants to take some of the credit for the BBall decisions if the Knicks start turning things around. Getting positive attention in the media.

He's been at MSG in one capacity or another for almost two decades, and never in that time did I hear one person say or write anything about Mills being a good exec on the BBall side. I think this is more about redemption for Mills than anything.

If Mills lets Perry do his job, he can take all the credit he wants for all I care.

Ok they make a move to fire Phil based on players demand. The are catering to KP who skipped out on his exit interview. Every new regime points to culture but they all leave because of it failing. Talking about culture is equivalent to talking about bullshyt.

Vairy funneee.

Just missing a couple things:
Marbury: I have seen the light
Jerome James: Coach, (huffing) I need out
Marbury: They scared now
Melo: I am ready to sacrifice 2.75 points from my scoring average
KP: I love triangles

The only things that trickle down are wages and horse shit

Did you actually watch the whole press conference? I think Perry looked at Mills once. There was one question asked to both Mills and Perry and Perry jumped in and answered it first. Mills just said he agreed with Perry. Are you so jaded about the past that you can't see a lot of positives from this? Dolan has already stated he is staying out of the basketball. They asked Mills what he learned from the past and he said in the past he was Pres/GM and decided he needed a GM to make basketball decisions. Team going with youth, athletic players, length, and building thru the draft. How can any Knick fan not be optimistic about this formula???

With a salary cap, you can't just get everything you want, especially if the previous president dedicated $62 mil next season to Melo, Lee, Thomas, and Noah.
