Marv Albert, as quoted by the New York Post’s Mike Forde in Friday’s edition :

Albert, who will be the Nets’ play-by-play man this season, sounded off on the Knick bosses Wednesday while shooting a TV spot for the YES Network.

“When you work for somebody for such a long period of time, it’s strange not doing the games, but I still feel that it’s a very difficult place if you are to do the games correctly,” Albert said. “They know they can’t do what you’re supposed to do.

“It’s not like you’re Mike Wallace or Edward R. Murrow, but there are obvious things that have to be said that they don’t want to be said. It’s so silly because fans see it. Players look at tapes. They know. You’re a mirror of what’s happening. I’ve never heard of that happening, and it did the last couple of years. You lose your credibility with that type of situation.”
