NFT: Knicks - The Fight that got Fiz Fired

Optimus-NY : 12/11/2019 7:00 am
Hey gang. I came on this article and was gobsmacked by what I read. In it there's a transcript of what went down between David Fizdale and Steve Mills at Knicks practice the other day. Apparrently, someone got a hold of what was said between the two. Check the following excerpt of this article out:




"Thanks to some exclusive, behind the scenes audio obtained by Knicks Film School, we now know the truth behind what went down in the bowels of the Knicks practice facility during the late afternoon hours of Saturday, December 7, 2019."


This is an absolute MUST READ. Parts of it are confusing because of the formatting, but just take your time reading it. Fizdale actually says something positive about Mudiay, lol. Just read it and feel free to laugh or just shake your head at this load of crap. Fiz belongs on a High School bench. Unbelievable. Enjoy reading it below.

Whatever we thought we knew about the Knicks disfunction...read this. Itís actually worse than we even imagined.
That's some alliteration there!

This does NOT make Steve Mills look good either

This being leaked hurts him more than it does Fizdale arguably. Fizdale has some fairy godmothers in the media and throughtout the league who will look out for him at least, but Mills doesn't. Fiz should never be a head coach again in his life in the NBA, but he can function as an assistant at least somewhere. Mills is done here after this season based on this getting out. Dolan can't bring him back. There was already word out that Mills was on thin ice prior to this, but now it's inevitable. It should be now though instead of after the season.
pretty sure that's satire

See, that's how you know the Knicks are as bad as you can get - when you read a piece that's obvious satire, as big a joke and distortion from reality that one could imagine, and yet you're still thinking to yourself, 'it's entirely possible this exchange DID happen in the Knicks case'.
lol

Which, the article or the Knicks?  
jcn56 : 12/11/2019 8:03 am : link
Trick question, they're both jokes.

If only SNL's audience cared more about sports, the comedic material you could pull out of that dynamic, especially with that goofy look that was always on Fiz's face, would be limitless.

Haha exactly. I read that and it didnít occur to me it could be satire...I thought it was entirely possible Fizdale was actually crying about how he used to have a great PG in Mudiay

Took about 3 seconds to come up with that, considering the stare of the franchise.

Bogie playing Mills. There were a lot of funny lines.

One of the first, 'where's Scott?'
He's at band practice, with Jim.
LOL

It shows how emotion clouds the judgment. If this were written about another team, Knicks fans would have spotted the satire immediately. But we as fans are so angry about the Knicks that we instantly believe something that provides a target for our anger. It took several posts until Peter--very perceptively pointed it out--and as soon as he did, the satire became obvious to everyone.

Good lesson here for about how social media can manipulate even intelligent people through their anger or frustration.
Funny thing about the internet...

it does have a way of showing you that the dysfunction runs deeper than you ever imagined...
