The New York Post is reporting that Hill has indeed been offered the MLE from the Knicks.
Now I don’t really know how to take this deal other then Hill will likely not take the offer. I’d be thrilled to have him here next season, and his tremendous work ethic and leadership would be very nice to have, but unfortunately Hill is a class act and is likely just radiating that in his comments.
“I’ve always been a fan of the Knicks and the city,” Hill said. “Obviously, they’ve gone through a lot the last few years, but I’m a big fan of Donnie Walsh and Mike D’Antoni, so I’m definitely interested. I’m just taking it all in.”
I appreciate it Hill, but you are 37 years old and need to get a ring and you won’t find one at MSG this season. New York won’t be upset with you if you chose Boston because you deserve a ring and really are great for the game. I’d like for you to chose New York, but I understand if you don’t.
