Me, The Knicks And The News
Just got back from the Canadian Chamber of Commerce meeting in Saskatoon to find the media machinery going full tilt!
In case you hadn't heard, the New York Daily News ran a story on Sunday saying that I was a candidate for a front office job with the New York Knicks basketball team. Now, all the media in Toronto and a number of other outlets across North America are running with the story.
It seems that every time a managerial job opens up in the NBA, my name comes up and they quite often contact me -- and that's happened again this time with the Knicks. However, there has been no formal offer of a contract or a job.
Frankly, I've got a lot of good reasons, personal and professional, to stay right where I am. I love this city and I get a lot of fulfillment from working at the Board of Trade.
There's not much more I can say about this. I think this morning's story in the Globe and Mail summed it up pretty well. It's business as usual for me, and if anything changes, I'll be putting an update here.
