The unexpected firing of Glen Grunwald and re-hiring of Steve Mills shocked the Knicks community. You can read TKB’s thoughts here. Let’s round up some reaction from other top Knicks sites…
Grunwald did something to convince Dolan that a guy who did mostly business things, got demoted, then bailed four years ago would make a better EVP/GM was the better man for the job AND that that switcharoo should take place days before the start of training camp. Sounds pretty dumb to me, but nothing out of the ordinary.
It’s strange that the Knicks have moved so abruptly to replace Grunwald. Clearly, Mills is a trusted Dolan confidant. It’s not like New York is replacing Grunwald with an executive proven to build teams worthy of winning multiple NBA titles.
For once I would like the headlines to be a positive move, not a head scratcher every time they splash the Knicks name in the media.
This is weird. But this is the Knicks, so of course, on a random, lovely autumn Thursday, we get this bit ‘o info over the Twitter-wire…
This move is very surprising for a couple of reasons. Firstly, the Knicks are coming off of their best season in quite some time. They eclipsed 50 wins; won the Atlantic Division; and got out of the first round of the playoffs for the first time in over a decade.
What do you think of the move?
