About 90 minutes before tipoff Monday night at Madison Square Garden, Leon Rose met Knicks general manager Steve Mills on the court. The two men walked under the stands and disappeared.
Thirty minutes later, Rose emerged and shook hands with Knicks executive Allan Houston. They strolled together through the tunnel leading toward the Knicks' locker room.
These meetings involving the highest levels of the Knicks' brass and Carmelo Anthony's agent came after two straight excruciating losses.
Hopefully this about staying with the team.
