ESPN personality Stephen A. Smith has had enough of the New York Knicks and president steve mills.
Mills and general manager Scott Perry addressed the media for several minutes before head coach David Fizdale’s press conference following the team’s 108-8 home loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers on Sunday. Mills said he and Perry aren’t happy with how things are going, saying he expected the Knicks to be better.
Stephen A., a long suffering Knicks fans, went off on Mills and the franchise during his radio show on Monday:

New York is 2-8 on the season. Owner James Dolan told Mills he’s “disappointed” by the Knicks’ 2-8 start, according to a source that spoke with Frank Isola of The Athletic. Dolan reportedly ordered Mills and Perry to address the media after Sunday’s game.
After missing out on stars Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving in free agency, the Knicks used their cap space on Julius Randle, Bobby Portis, Taj Gibson, Marcus Morris, Wayne Ellington, Elfrid Payton and Reggie Bullock. That’s a lot of power forwards on one team.
Like Stephen A. says, no one expected New York to be good. The fact that Mills, Perry and Dolan can’t see that just points to how dysfunctional the Knicks are. They continue to be a walking disaster.
