that's because masai is widely considered if not the top GM, a top 3 right now. It wasn't just Masai, apparently they are also looking at Presti, Bufford etc. New York people live in a bubble, they really, truly believe that they are special and everybody else is full of envy and wants nothing more than to live in NYC. 


If Dolan leaves, that very much is true. Be a millionaire and run a franchise in NYC? I'd do it in a heartbeat.

I can't fathom a scenario where a GM worth their salt would chose to work for Dolan.  If the league wants to correct the NYK and get them back on track, they need that franchise sold to an owner that actually cares.  I just don't see Dolan ever selling - which is a shame to the rest of the league as imho, the league needs the Knicks.

why??? I would understand going to LA, for the glorious weather, but NYK is just a colder, more abnoxious and crowded version of Toronto. Not to mention the NYK media, I'd rather run the leafs than a NYK team ...

Phil Jackson apparently got a lot of freedom, I think the pitch they would make is full control with no meddling. Whether they are belived or not, it's a different discussion. 

I have a feeling Morey will end up in NYK, if they don't win this year. He had a rocky relation with his owner even before the china debacle.

In any case, I have no worries about this - there is absolutely no way masai leaves Toronto for NYK. He has everything he wants here, and he's the king of the league. If he turns Toronto into the northern version of the Spurs, he would be a legend. Even if the believes dolan, that franchise is a disaster, it would take 4-5 years to get it to be good. Dolan probably thinks a guy like Bufford or masai comes in, and they win the title next season- he would magically find some fully formed siakams and van vleets, and convince all the superstars that are on long term contracts to demand trades to NY 🙂

Masai is the man, and there is no salary cap. Keep your flexibility and don't take the first offer they throw at you.

Lol. You couldn't pay me enough to live in cali. NYC is the world center of culture and finance. Toronto is nice and all, but let's not pretend it has anything on NYC - particularly as a multi millionaire.
