I actually don't want him to sell. He cuts the checks without blinking and now he stays away and concentrates on his live entertainment and venue endeavors. What more do y'all want? A new owner could easily be another Wilpon. The devil you know is often better than the devil you don't know.

I wouldn’t mind him firing mills and hiring someone with a track record....but mills could do no wrong as far Dolan is concerned

Be careful what you wish for... because you just might get it!

We are ONE year away from one of the biggest free agency summers in years. We're on track to acquire maybe 1 or possibly 2 top free agents AND we have an owner willing to open his checkbook and make it happen.

Do you REALLY want some unknown new owner to come along and possibly ruin everything by being cheap??

Pray that Dolan waits until AFTER next summer if he's going to sell.

Nervous with trepidation. Why?

The Yankees were bought by CBS and every one thought that was a good idea.

They were TERRIBLE until some guy who graduated from Ohio State was DENIED buying the Cleveland Indians and bought the Yankees for $8.7M.

Is there an NBA owner that wouldnt open their checkbook for a proven superstar? That's not a reason to be pro Dolan.

I don’t have no issue with how things are going right now. I’m not a fan of mills. But so far it seems like he’s letting Perry do his job. Or at least greatly values his opinion. I like how they handled the Carmelo situation. That’s not an outcome I’ve learned to expect from the knicks. Nor was the willy situation. The mudiay trade. Signing mario. I’m pleased with what they did in this draft. Fiz is a different type of coach. I like what he’s saying too.

We’re young. Big. Long. Athletic. We have several recent lottery picks. I think this will be a fun season. We have options. A little flexibility. I’m totally fine with the knicks right now. And if we stay this course things will start looking good soon. So long as everyone is allowed to do their jobs. And are on the same page. I’m good with the knicks as a whole.

Knicks are the most valuable team in the league so a “cheap” new owner isn’t buying them. Come on guys seriously...

Unless it's the Bucks daughter, it'll most likely be a team of people buying them if they sold. Meaning too many cooks in the kitchen, and a more stingy wallet than Dolan.

Why does everyone assume Perry is in charge of the decision making?

For those of you who don't like Mills and want him gone. Please understand that if Dolan doesn't have someone he trusts in the mix that is when he tends to meddle.

He is leaving the Knicks alone now cuz he trusts Mills. Just as he left the Rangers alone once he trusted Sather.

So as long as Dolan stays away and Perry is here then I got no reason to want Mills gone or Dolan to sell.

That’s why we want Dolan gone. He puts his trust in the wrong person.

The Rangers are good though. This is way overblown since he stopped caring about interfering.

The rangers guy Dolan trusts is good at his job, so far Mills has proven he sucks at his job. That’s the difference

Well take solace in the fact Mills has placed his trust in the right person. Scott Perry.

Why do you think Mills is just a figurehead? And what makes Scott Perry so great? I’m taking a wait and see approach with him.

I don't wanna derail but Scott Perry hasn't made a move I have disliked yet. Can you name one unsatisfactory move he's made?

If I agree with your premise that Perry is the one making the moves, then, yes, I haven’t disagreed with anything since he’s been hired, but he also hasn’t done anything to blow me away either. I was encouraged by summer league, but it’s too early to be happy about our draft. So far looking good though.
