Glen Grunwald‘s pock-marked tenure as head of the New York Knicks’ basketball operations unit is over.
The former president and general manager was moved into an advisory role and Steve Mills shifted duties within the organization on Thursday, releasing Grunwald from the thankless task of having to operate under Madison Square Garden boss James Dolan.
“I am pleased to welcome Steve back to the Knicks,” Dolan said in a statement. “He is a well-respected sports executive with a strong background in basketball, as well as a familiarity with NBA operations and our company. We look forward to his leadership and believe he is the right person to help us reach our ultimate goal of winning an NBA championship.”
Mills has been a key executive for the Knicks and was a high-ranking official in MSG, the parent company that is essentially interchangeable with the Knicks from a business perspective. The Princeton alum played for the Tigers under Pete Carril.
Under Grunwald’s watch, the Knicks mis...

The Knicks open training camp October 1st as the defending Atlantic Division champions for the first time in nearly 20 years. Although he was faced with salary cap restrictions entering the off-season, recently replaced GM, Glen Grunwald was able to be quite creative in assembling this year’s team.

The New York Knicks couldn’t let us just coast into training camp next week, right? Right. In a surprising move, the team announced they are demoting GM Glen Grunwald to “advisor” AKA moving him to a cabin in New Hampshire and promoting team executive Steve Mills in his place. Why oh why and what does this mean?

As we inch closer to the start of training camp, several projections and lists will make their way to the internet and one such list is the top-100 players in the NBA compiled by Sports Illustrated. New York Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony comes in at No. 10.

Starting last season, the inside collar of all New York Knicks jerseys read “Once A Knick, Always A Knick.” Judging by the way they move players around, this statement couldn’t be any further from the truth. Unfortunately, it sometimes means that legendary Knicks are forced to suit up as an opponent in Madison Square Garden. This was perfectly exemplified when a certain number...
The New York Knicks have signed veteran forward Ike Diogu, who has been out of the NBA for nearly all of the last two seasons.

The idea that one player could be more important than the team concept is maddening to me. Assuming Melo picks...

The Trail Blazers still have not forgiven Raymond Felton.
Felton is now a productive point guard for the Knicks, but two years ago he kind of, sort of, pretty much quit on the Blazers. In Portland unwillingly as a result of three-team trade involving a batch of role players, Felton coasted his way to more than $7.5 million in the 2011-12 season while career lows of 11.4 points per...

Back on Wednesday, NBA commissioner David Stern was announcing the New York Knicks and the Brooklyn Nets would be co-hosting the 2015 NBA All-Star Weekend at a press conference.
Sadly for David, he had a tiny slip-up by saying that the Nets were based in New York instead of Brooklyn:
To defend Mr. Stern, the Nets did play in New York from 1968-1977.
