Knicks president Steve Mills tours his old Long Island neighborhoods

Knicks president Steve Mills took a walk down memory lane. He grew up on Long Island, and spent countless hours at the Percy Jackson Memorial Youth Center, where his dad was the director, and at the Kennedy Park indoor gym, where he's on their Wall of Fame. Mills' father was the first African-American teacher hired at Hempstead High School in 1957, and the school's gym is named after him. His uncle, Charlie, also taught at the school, and the football and track field is named after him. Mills also gave a Q&A at his alma mater, Friends Academy on Jan. 29, 2018.
