The Knicks are going into this season as laughing stocks after failing to secure even one big-name team. Their humiliation was intensified by how their cross-borough rivals got Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving. Knicks president Steve Mills was the unlucky executive in the hot seat.
Today was Knicks media the day and president Steve Mills addressed the media with some interesting remarks. The one that seems to be getting all of the attention right now is when Mills said there were multiple max players who were interested in the Knicks but the team opted to go in a different direction. Yes, that’s right. The Knicks are now saying they didn’t want max players in the first place.

“There was a lot of max-type players that we’ve could have met with that were interested in coming here,” Mills said. “We had a certain way we wanted to build this team and this is how we chose to build it.”
As you can imagine, Knicks fans thought the comments were pretty ridiculous and couldn’t believe their president would say such a thing. It’s just another instance of why being a Knicks fan must be one of the hardest things to endure on this planet.
