      I know this merely sounds like a disclaimer when I say I’m not being sexist, but I really am not ready for Doris Burke to take over for Magic Johnson. Of all the ESPN commentators and reporters they have, she is one of my LEAST favorite. No it’s not the monotone voice that bugs me, it’s her lack of intelligent analysis and remotely interesting discussion. I’m gonna just start tuning in for the games when they start. The TNT crew with Sir Charles was already at times unbearable for me to watch. ESPN has now joined the ranks.

      There’s a nice piece on Mills in the Times: http://www.nytimes.com/2013/10/12/sports/basketball/completely-ready-or-not-steve-mills-takes-charge-of-knicks.html?ref=sports&_r=0

      Hmm…that article is undoubtedly pro-Mills. But I learned things about Mills’ NBA career that I didn’t previously know. So..provided the FO staff around him is talented enough, I will admit it sounds like Mills will be a great hire. H20 is probably the wild card in this regime, being the one out I the group for Mills to lean on who has the least experience and relationships. I do think Houston’s time in the D League can help immensely when it comes to adding cheap talent to fill the roster. Maybe it will work. Mills seems to be willing to learn how to succeed at his new job from the bottom up. So..I’ll give him a grace period before I start screaming for his head. The only way he can kill this season is by firing Woodson, and trading Melo and Tyson for pennies on the dollar. Even Isaiah and Dolan are not THAT crazy. Right? RIGHT??

      Agreed. It’s very pro-Mills. My last posts about Mills were when I was just learning about him in the wake of GG’s firing. They were of the – He threatened to trash her reputation to prevent her from bringing charges?! He should be run out of town on a rail! – variety. So, I needed a more well-rounded picture of him. This piece isn’t a complete picture, but I learned a lot and found it helpful. I’d still be interested, though, in anything that helps clarify the truth about the accusations against him.
