    I would make Mills suffer a miserable dismissal and require his last executive order be the hiring of his replacement

    I would consult MSG execs on a list of candidates requesting of at least a dozen and make Mills sit through each interview

    What was Fizdale smiling about in that last timeout, Portis sure wasn't happy about this blowout.

    They had a story on why some GM didn’t want the job... maybe it was LJ’s old GM or something. Dolan was willing to give him the sun and moon... he just wouldn’t allow him to bring his own front office staff. No quality GM will come here if Dolan is forcing Mills and other front office minions down their throat.

    Let’s kill Mills here, not Fizdale. Fiz was told he’d be coaching KP, Zion, Kyrie and KD... not this hot smelly mess.

    Anybody would like to bring back Phil and Gaines? They seen to know how to draft and bring in players like D. Rose and Beasley. No haven't forgotten about Noah. Make no mistake about it.

    Those number are to be expected in certain games. The trouble is knowing who you can win with in the future. You have those that can put up number/stat's but can they bring the intangibles that it takes to win. Two out the four list can the other two can't help a team with a superstar.

    Ok, Then just say who is better. Would you not like to have a lineup of Robinson, KP, Knots, Porter Jr. and Frank? 4 of those are Phil and Gaines picks. Just tell me who you want.

    I’ve longed for the refs to put us on the FT line so much. Now we get the whistle and I cringe whenever anybody wearing and NYK uniform attempts the most basic shot in basketball: the free throw.

    Management, according to a source, considered the last 10-game segment an improvement over the first 10 games despite the same 2-8 record. The next step was getting the Knicks to close out games in the fourth quarter.

    Coincidentally, the defeat was to Bucks coach Mike Budenholzer, the reigning Coach of the Year, who the Knicks interviewed for their vacant position in 2018 but passed over to sign Fizdale.

    That worked out for Budenholzer, who has won 12 in a row with the best team in the NBA. Not so much for Fizdale, who has dropped seven in a row with the worst team in the NBA.

    The 45-year-old Fizdale, who has two more seasons on his four-year deal, became a dead coach on the sideline the moment Knicks president Steve Mills — at the urging of James Dolan — hijacked a postgame press conference and declared that the team needs to play better. Mills has been an abject failure as a basketball executive and saddled Fizdale with supremely flawed rosters for consecutive seasons.

    But the coach hasn’t done himself any favors, amassing a 21-82 record with the Knicks. There’s no identity. No style of play. No sense of flow or structure. Since Fizdale lost his final eight games in Memphis, he really only has 21 wins in his last 111 games as an NBA coach. That’s an ugly statistic.

    And frankly, the only thing Mills has left to sell is that the coach is the problem. Every other explanation has gone to the incinerator.


    From the moment Mills usurped Phil Jackson in 2017 and tried to disavow all associations with the Zen Master, nearly all the promises from he and Fizdale have proven false:

    They were going to be an attractive destination for superstars. (Nope.)

    They were going to build an identity and culture. (Nope.)

    They were going be masters at player development. (Nope.)

    They were going to be competitive and improve every year. (Nope.)

    They were going build a team around Kristaps Porzingis. (Nope.)


    According to ESPN, Mills has been “laying the groundwork” to fire Fizdale. And now you wonder again — following Monday’s no-show — how close he is to pulling the trigger.

    After all, what is the point of continuing down this road?

    I'd look to install Kadeem ahead of DSJ for the next game if Nits can't play and ahead of him as first PG off the bench. 3-4 from 3, when was the last time that happened from our PG and he plays D.
