Nah. Pretty much everybody here, Doug included, has criticized the Reinsdorfs plenty. Personally, I'd be happier if the team were in different hands. But I am cautiously optimistic that the ownership will let Karnisovas do his thing.
Do we have a nickname for Karnisovas, by the way? Is he to be AK?
I think that, for brevity, AK is good for now.
But if he makes some moves that get people excited, then I can see something more personal coming out like:
- or "The Art"
Regarding criticizing ownership, in this thread there hasn't been much, or actually any (outside of myself).
Like you, I do have some optimism that they will keep on the gloves with AK until he gets his legs under him.
After all it appears that they finally "got it" with Gar/Pax that they'd lost their way.
But we don't know if that means that they'll actually change anything that they've been doing since MJ, Pip and company rode off into the sunset more than 20 years ago.
