This surprised me because I expected the former Knick to push for New York. But he made it clear, in no uncertain terms, that the only reason to go to the Knicks was if they were paying more money.
"What about playing in the Garden, and the fans, and the prestige of being a Knick?" I asked.
He laughed, then mumbled a curse, then said LeBron should stay in Cleveland.
So much for that Knicks mystique. ...
The arrogant claims that the life's dream of a kid born in Akron, Ohio -- or Dallas (Chris Bosh), or Chicago (Dwyane Wade) -- is to play for the Knicks just makes you look foolish and out of touch.
