After the acquisition of Carmelo Anthony, three straight playoff appearances, the team’s first postseason series victory in 13 years and an overall new culutre, it seemed as if the days of the LOLKnicks were past its prime. Well, apparently not.
The ‘bockers announced yesterday that seemingly out of nowhere the organization demoted it’s general manager Glenn Grunwald to “advisor” and replaced him with former MSG president Steve Mills.
The move has harbored the same reaction that most James Dolan moves do and player agent Rich Kaplan had the following diatribe for ESPN New York:
Glen’s firing is absurd and the timing is cruel. Here is a guy that remarkably created a winning atmosphere in one of the most toxic NBA environments today,” Kaplan said in an email to ESPNNewYork.com. “He did everything he was asked to do by his owner, and did it with a smile on his face. The only good news is that some lucky team will have Glen fall in its lap and he can finally work for a team that appreciates his enormous talent and class.
Let’s hope that Isaiah Thomas is not on his way to New York as we speak.
