I found out this morning that James Dolan has yet to meet the new Knicks GM Scott Perry.
Well to be perfectly honest with you I had forgotten that the Knicks had a new GM.
I know that the owner of the team should have more of a handle on the
personnel of his organization than I do but I think that it speaks
volumes about what Dolan thinks of the guy and the fans.
should be noted that on the day that Perry was hired, July 14th, James
Dolan did send out a press release stating that he was Steve Mills'
hire, Mills is now the president of the team, and Dolan had no influence
upon Perry's hiring.
I guess it was nice that he acknowledged Perry's existence but you'd
have thought that he would have at least taken the man, along with
Mills, out to lunch or something.
Scott Perry is coming
from the Sacramento Kings were he had the title of vice president of
basketball operations. Yeah, doesn't mean much to me either.
after hearing about Perry's new hire for assistant GM, Gerald Madkins
we all were given Perry's secret to winning in the NBA. Ready for it?
It's soul food. That's right, soul food.
when Perry was working for the Pistons in the early 2000's for Joe
Dumars, Perry would cook up mean pans of: mac and cheese, ribs, fried
catfish and cole slaw and presto, the Pistons went on to win a
championship in 2004. Perry feels that all that greasy, high carb and
sugar laden food creates the sense of family and camaraderie that are
the keys to being a winning franchise.
I think it contributes to
diabetes but hey I am not a great basketball mind so what do I know. I
am not making this up.
This franchise, boy I tell ya. Nothing but yucks.
