Maybe you think $71 million is a gross overpay for Tim Hardaway Jr. Maybe you fret there will come a time in the next few years when the Knicks might covet a star and won’t have enough salary-cap room to entice him to the Garden. Maybe you think Pirates Authentic Jersey Hardaway is precisely the piece that will make the Knicks just good enough to stay out of a prime lottery spot, and just bad enough to ensure a lousy one.
In other words: Maybe you’re like most of the folks about town who’ve spent the last few days scratching their heads at this puzzling transaction.
But you know who likes this deal – who, you would think (you would hope) – LOVES this deal? The men who run the Knicks. The owner, James Dolan, who approved the expenditure. The Acting Boss, Steve Mills, who negotiated the deal and brought Hardaway http://www.officialpiratesproshop.com back home. The coach, Jeff Hornacek, who has been paroled from the Triangle Penitentiary and who must figure out how to maximize his new asset.
None of them were at the press conference at Baruch College introducing Hardaway. How is this possible? These are the days that team presidents and head coaches are supposed to live for. You know the newest cliché in sports, right?
“Win the press conference.”
Everyone wins the press conference. Hell, even Phil Jackson won the press conference last summer, on the day he introduced Joakim Noah, Courtney Lee and Brandon Jennings. It was one of the few times, one of the last times, when we saw the version of Jackson we were promised the day he was hired (the Knicks definitely won the press conference THAT day). He didn’t win much of anything else in his time here, but he absolutely Sabres Womens Jersey won that press conference.
Even a franchise so paralyzed by press paranoia as the Knicks has to realize that, at minimum, there is curiosity attached to Hardaway’s signing. And, yes: The fact that David Griffin turned down the team’s overtures to become GM certainly would have been asked, but any reasonably competent organization embraces that, too, understanding it’s one setting in which you can control even hard-to-rationalize decisions.
Instead, the Knicks punted. We can speculate why, of course, starting with what has long been the team’s motto: “It’s none of your business.” Maybe Dolan doesn’t trust Mills to serve as a spokesman yet, which is only troubling if you consider that he DID entrust http://www.authenticsabresprostore.com/ him with throwing a pile of money at a shooting guard with a career field-goal percentage of .427.
