Senator seeks therapy ban Sen. Brad Hoylman has introduced a bill that would legally prohibit mental health professionals from using “conversion therapies” meant to turn gay teens straight, the NY Daily News reported. Hoylman, who has a husband and a 2-year-old daughter, slammed the practice as “increas[ing] the stigma in society and creat[ing] a culture of unacceptance for young gay and lesbian people.”

“It is not only impossible, but it is detrimental to young people to attempt to convert them.” HOYLMAN

NYers ask cops to stop confiscating condoms Pushing change. Advocates say condoms as evidence hurts public health. Clara Sierra was leaving a club after a night out when cops accused her of being a prostitute. Sierra, 40, said she was trying to find her way back home after leaving a club when cops approached her. The police were sure they were right when they found two condoms. Sierra spent 10 days in Rikers. Advocates say too many New Yorkers land in jail after cops confiscate condoms. Some are people like Sierra. Many transgender people report that cops assume they are sex workers.

And despite one’s reasons for walking on a sidewalk, everyone should practice safe sex, especially prostitutes, advocates say. Sierra is one of the people pushing Albany this week to approve legislation barring condoms as prostitution evidence. Supporters of the No Condoms as Evidence Bill say taking away condoms poses a public health threat. “It is a waste of money and a shame that the Health Department gives out condoms and the police take them away and destroy them,” said Sierra, an educator at Harm Reduction Educators, which helps sex workers. In Long Island, Nassau County District Attorney Kathleen Rice banned using condoms as evidence, saying losing condoms was not worth a “limited courtroom gain.”

Xiona Geovane, 35, told Metro that two weeks ago on Roosevelt Avenue in Queens, cops accused her and a friend of prostitution. They arrested them after finding condoms in her friend’s purse, she said, and they spent the weekend in jail. “I shouldn’t be afraid to be walking with condoms,” Geovane said. The NYPD defended its practice, saying it nabs pimps. “We do not understand why anyone would want to ban the use of condoms in helping to prove cases against pimps and sex traffickers and to shut down brothels,” NYPD spokesman Paul Browne said. “That’s what the bill sought by these advocates in fact does, and that’s why we oppose it.”

Is landing gear near WTC a hoax?

The NYPD has reported that a piece of landing gear, seemingly from one of the airplanes that crashed into the World Trade Center on Sept. 11, 2001, has been found behind the Park 51 Islamic cultural center. The object is wedged in an 18-inch space between 51 Park Place and 50 Murray St. Over the weekend, NYPD officers were sta-

tioned in front of the entrance to 51 Park Place, which was cordoned off with police tape. The NYPD is treating the area as an active crime scene, and the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner is slated to determine whether to sift the surrounding soil for possible human remains. However, it is not known whether the part is from one of those

specific planes. In a photo provided by the NYPD, a rope intertwined with the machinery is visible. Police are not ruling out the possibility that it may have been lowered into the space from the roof, Police Commissioner Ray Kelly told the Times. According to the Post, the landing gear is about 17 inches wide. DANIELLE TCHOLAKIAN

cars that recall another bygone era: the Roaring Twenties. Exotic car designer Jason Wenig is working with New Yorkers for Safe, Clean and Livable Streets (NYCLASS) to build a $450,000 prototype of the horseless carriage. If the pilot project goes forward, the car could arrive in Central Park within a year. “Passengers will feel like they are being transported into the ‘Great Gatsby’ era in a modern car,” said Allie Feldman,

an organizer for NYClass. The ultimate goal, according to the advocacy group, is to eliminate the use of horse-drawn carriages in the city — a practice they say is inhumane, pointing to the animals’ long working hours and lack of pasture time.

Tensions. Two police officers shot as Italian government sworn in Two Italian police officers were shot and wounded yesterday outside the prime minister’s office in Rome as new premier Enrico Letta’s government was being sworn in just a miles away. It was not clear whether the attack by a man police said was unemployed was linked to the launch of the new government at a time of

deep political divisions and social tensions exacerbated by a long slump in the economy. Newly installed Interior Minister Angelino Alfano said the attack appeared to be an “isolated act” that did not suggest any wider security threat. But there were immediate calls for politicians to try to calm a volatile public mood. REUTERS

Republican senators yesterday pressed President Barack Obama to intervene in Syria’s civil war, saying America could attack Syrian air bases with missiles but should not send in ground troops.

The Supreme Court is considering a case that may change affirmative action nationwide. / GETTY IMAGES

Diversity. A case in Texas could change affirmative action nationwide. Thirty-five years after the Supreme Court set the terms for boosting college admissions of AfricanAmericans and other minorities, the court may be about to issue a ruling that could restrict universities’ use of race in deciding who is awarded a spot. The case before the justices was brought by Abigail Fisher, a white suburban Houston student who asserts she was wrongly rejected by the University of Texas at Austin while minority students with similar grades and test scores were admitted. The ruling is the only one the court has yet to issue following oral arguments in cases heard in October and November, the opening months of the court’s annual term which lasts until the early summer. A decision may come as early as today, before the start of a two-week recess. As hard as it is to predict when a ruling will be announced, it is more difficult to say how it might change the law. Still, even a small move in the Texas case could mark the beginning of a new chapter limiting college administrators’ dis-

cretion in using race in deciding on admissions. For decades, dating back at least to the John F. Kennedy administration of the 1960s, leaders have struggled with what “affirmative action” should be taken to help minorities. In the early years, it was seen as a way to remedy racial prejudice and discrimination; in recent decades, it’s a way to bring diversity to campuses and workplaces. Since 1978, the Supreme Court has been at the center of disputes over when universities may consider applicants’ race. In that year’s groundbreaking decision involving a University of California medical school, the justices forbade quotas but said schools could weigh race with other factors. In another seminal case, the court in 2003 affirmed the use of race in admissions to create diversity in colleges. Marvin Krislov, now president of Oberlin College in Ohio and a past vice president of the University of Michigan, says that university administrators are concerned about how broadly the ruling may sweep and whether it will reduce the number of minority students. “Colleges and universities care deeply about student body diversity,” he says, adding of his colleagues in higher educa-

Rose McGowan: Blond ambition Rose McGowan says her new platinum tresses give her a toughness she hadn’t had before. “Part of [going blond] is because I’ve been told [brunettes] look accessible and pleasing to the men in L.A. so as not to scare them,” she says. “But then, I realized, I always scare them, so f— it. I’m just going to do whatever I want.” McGowan is so fierce during our interview, it is hard to believe that the whole point in her talking to me is to promote the limited-edition rose wine, Apothi Rose (pronounced like the flower, hence the hiring of McGowan; get it?). “I only drink Rosé, isn’t that funny?” she says. What’s not funny? The current battles of the sexes in Hollywood. “It’s all frat guys. The execs and the agents. They are people who went to law school, and it wasn’t sexy enough, so they wanted to come have sex with actresses. It’s not like they want to be a part of great filmmaking or anything.”

I was doing a show and I changed there and I went and I couldn’t wear underwear,” Paltrow says of the decision to rock the look. “Let’s just say everyone went scrambling for a razor.”

DON CHEADLE The actor talks about filming one of the biggest superhero franchises and going joke for joke with Robert Downey Jr.

GUNNING FOR HIS SPOT ON THE AVENGERS TEAM Don Cheadle has been on a pretty intense world tour for “Iron Man 3,” and it’s beginning to wear on him. “I’m beat, but you know. It’s the home stretch,” he offers with a shrug as we sit down to start our interview. That home stretch, by the way, is nothing to sneeze at: “We leave Thursday for New York, Toronto, it just goes on,” he says. But when you’re promoting one of the biggest superhero franchises on the planet — playing James “Rhodey” Rhodes, who suits up as Iron Man’s government-sanctioned counterpart Iron Patriot — this kind of schedule is par for the course. With a movie this size, I guess it’s what you signed up for. Yeah, you forget that. It’s like having a baby for a woman, you know. If I could remember this every time I did a movie, I’d probably just quit. [Laughs] How was it different for you as an actor having

for it.

Q&A

Hangin’ with Downey Jr. The humor level in this one seems amped up, especially between you and Robert Downey Jr. There’s more of it. I think if you look at the second movie, when we’re in the Japanese garden at the end, you kind of see where it’s headed. You see us startShane Black directing compared to Jon Favreau? Well, having Shane be the writer of the piece, there’s a lot more of a shorthand, a lot quicker sort of availability to the writer when we’re going over the scenes and going through the scenes. There’s a lot of improv that happens, but the improv is in sort of a controlled playground. It’s been mentioned that I really should show up in “The Avengers” at some point.

ing that whole process at that point, and I think this is just sort of the further culmination of that. And I think there’s more that could be mined, and we’ll see if there’s anything that’s going to happen afterward. But yeah, it was nice to have the opportunity to really find some more colors in their relationship. Who mentioned that? Oh wait, me. [Laughs] The movies, the family of Marvel movies, have been faithful to their own mythology, not necessarily to what the comic book dictates. You know, in the comic book Rhodey is in the Marines, Iron Patriot is a completely different character. So there’s a contained sort of mythology that the movies answer to, and that’s something that Marvel is continuously creating. So yeah, he might show up, I don’t know. I’d be down

Is there anything you can do to lobby for that? No, but you can get on it. Just park yourself outside of [Marvel Studio head] Kevin Feige’s house. I’m sure that will go over very well. Well, get your friends. Don’t just do it by yourself. That’s not enough. That’s weird. How does the balance between making your TV show, “House of Lies,” and your film work? It’s great. I mean, the show is a blitzkrieg when we’re doing it. It’s three months and we’re shooting an episode per five days, which is really, really fast. But it’s a testament to the production team behind us and our director, Stephen Hopkins, the writers and the network as well, that we’re able to get through it. And it’s three months out of the year, so it’s pretty self-contained, and then I have the rest of the year to do the other

WIREIMAGE

things. I have a production company that’s pretty healthy right now — we’re doing a lot of stuff with them. And I try to get in some family time and rest and all that. I have a daughter on her way to college, so that’s cool. So I’m pretty happy; it’s been a nice balance so far. And how much time does that leave to camp outside Kevin Feige’s house? That’s what you’re going to do. You have to ask

FIT INTO THOSE SKINNY JEANS

yourself that question. Get on it, it’s important. Maybe this is brilliant marketing on Showtime’s part, or maybe I just have a simple brain, but I can’t drive past the L.A. diner House of Pies without thinking of your show. It’s your brain. [Laughs] Now, that would be marketing. I should just buy the franchise.

The ‘Price’ is (mostly) right Blue-collar drama. The director of “Goodbye Solo” finally works with the “High School Musical” kid. If there’s anyone in American cinema today more consciously carrying the torch of classic European neorealist cinema, it’s Ramin Bahrani. “Man Push Cart,” “Chop Shop” and “Goodbye Solo” are all perceptive looks at the working class that don’t simply honor their struggle but respect them enough to reveal their flaws. Perhaps it’s inevitable that every director winds up with a star-heavy cast, even if one of those stars is

Zac Efron. And Bahrani — who has classically leaned toward non-pros, or at least under-knowns — is apparently no exception. “At Any Price” is a bit of Frankenstein monster, if not in the ways one would think. Dennis Quaid plays Henry Whipple, a smalltown Illinois seed farmer first seen lecturing his layabout son Dean (Efron) on the finer points of shamelessly manipulating people using a big grin and a forced positive attitude. A third-generation business owner, he keeps things going with genetically altered seeds and a shortage of ethics, and expects his two sons to carry on the family name. But one is off traipsing about Argentina, while Dean seems uninterested in everything, save striking

back at dad. Where Bahrani’s previous films were tightly focused, the bigger “Price” — which also makes room for Heather Graham as an evil Midwestern version of a temptress — is more diffuse. It’s rarely clear if it’s being driven by character, narrative or a savage satire of today’s economic woes.

When it takes a turn for a morality tale in the 11th hour, the cleanup can’t help but feel rushed and only partially earned. But there’s so much goodness here. Quaid, as a kind of grifter who’s been “on” so long he’s even fooled himself, hasn’t been this energized in ages. And Bahrani stretches his stuff.

Specializing in

His work here is more slick (read: the camera’s on a tripod). It often doesn’t feel like him, except that the concerns are roughly the same. The most shocking parts come during scenes depicting Dean’s sudden jones for stock-car driving. The racing sequences are bizarrely kinetic, with Bahrani shedding his gritty realist

side for an approximation of “Ronin”-era John Frankenheimer. No single film that veers between such extremes could always stay coherent, but this messy drama does more good than not.

Jim James taps into the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Sound of Godâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Solo project. The My Morning Jacket singer talks wordless novels, shape-changing songs and putting down the guitar. While My Morning Jacket take a short break from recording and touring, founder and lead singer Jim James continues to surprise his listeners with the drastic sonic departure of his recently released solo debut, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Regions of Light and Sound of God.â&#x20AC;? We spoke with James shortly before last monthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s SXSW Music Conference in Austin, Texas, but we had to enlist him for another conversation after taking in his performance. While James has been known to step onstage for a solo set or collaborate under the moniker Yim Yames, this project marks his first official solo record.

The name game

Yim Yames or Jim James? â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is no difference. I just got tired of dealing with it,â&#x20AC;? says James. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People just didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get it and didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see the humor in it. Humor is not appreciated today in our modern music world. People want musicians to be so fâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; ing serious all the time. It just turned into a snowball of people being like â&#x20AC;&#x153;WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY!?â&#x20AC;? I mean, I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know, I just thought it was funny. Sorry.â&#x20AC;?

Jim James plays a sold-out show at Webster Hall tonight. / NOLAN GAWRON, METRO

With â&#x20AC;&#x153;Regions,â&#x20AC;? he has produced an epic collection of songs that seem as though divine intervention and production value have led the songwriter to explore new and sacred soil. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A couple of these songs had a few seeds that had

been milling around for a few years,â&#x20AC;? says James. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Then I got this book called â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Godâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Manâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; by Lynd Ward that really inspired the songs to change shape. I almost became hypnotized by it and songs just started coming out of that. The

best way I can describe it was more like scoring a film and less like writing an album. It brought the record into focus.â&#x20AC;? Published in 1929 and credited as Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first wordless novel, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Godâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Manâ&#x20AC;? is comprised of 139

woodcuts transferred to paper, telling the story of an artist and his struggle to free himself from the bonds of the business world. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The cool thing about the book,â&#x20AC;? says James, is that â&#x20AC;&#x153;itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s from 1929, but

itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so fresh. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something about that art deco movement that survives with a timeless quality. It still has this power. I realized I wanted to build a sound upon that which was modern, but was still old and crackly at the same time. I wanted it to be the sound of future past â&#x20AC;&#x201D; like I made it to sound like the year 4000, but I made it in the year 3990.â&#x20AC;? Taking the record on the road, James is joined by a full band that has a more electronic feel than My Morning Jacket. The band also gives him the freedom to dance like a frontman. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I love playing guitar, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so nice to be free of it,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Then when you play it again, it becomes a very special reunion. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s where my headâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been at. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been more into dance and soul music and things that arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t as guitar-oriented.â&#x20AC;?

Need to detox? Try yoga Fitness. Jennifer Anistonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s trainer shows us how.

Three-legged downwardfacing dog

After a nacho-filled weekend in Cabo or one too many cocktails at dinner, it can be tempting to hit the juicer to detox. But did you ever think that a yoga routine might have the same cleansing effect? Mandy Ingber, who has sculpted the bodies of Jennifer Aniston and Kate Beckinsale, says that detoxing doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to be all about what you put into your body â&#x20AC;&#x201D; what you put into your mind is just as important. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When you abstain from old, self-defeating talk and replace it with positive self-talk, your body chemistry changes, making you feel lighter and happier. When we reprogram ourselves this way, we come from a happy and satisfied place of gratitude and make healthier, self-loving

choices. Believe me, I have tried whipping myself into shape, and I have adopted the positive approach that I use now. This has given me consistency and allowed my body to fall into place effortlessly, as if it happened all by itself.â&#x20AC;? Ingber created this cleansing yoga routine to help clear up any funkiness going on inside (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Twists literally wring the toxins out of the body,â&#x20AC;? she says). Start with some meditation on all the good your body can do, and check out more detoxing moves in the pages of her book.

JOHN W. FISCHER We asked an expert how a career at an establishment with fancy linens and polished silver actually works.

MAKE PEOPLE HAPPY John W. Fischer is a professor of hospitality and service management at The Culinary Institute of America — New York. Over nearly 30 years, he has worked as a captain, manager, wine director, and front waiter at some of the most famous fine dining locations in New York City. What skills are required for waiting tables in fine dining? You have to want to serve people. That sounds easier than it is. If — on a really

fundamental level — you don’t get satisfaction from making other people happy, it’s wrong for you to try it as a career. Secondly, you’ve got to have a laser-like focus. How do you spot a good restaurant to work for? Of course, the reputation on the street is good to know. But take it with several pounds of salt, because hell hath no fury like a waiter scorned. Is it one person saying negative things, or several? Once you meet the people hiring you, take notice

of how you feel around them. Do you get a creepy feeling? Do you enjoy talking to them? Working with people under stressful situations can be taxing and it’s better if you actually like each other. Also, if they offer you a ton of money that’s out of line with other restaurants like them, that probably means they’re a pain to work for. So how do you break in? A good strategy is to identify the fine dining companies that

also own more casual establishments. You can start in the casual location and move up to fine dining. But I think that if you’re smart and nice and hardworking, you can go to many great restaurants and say, “I will do whatever you need me to do, so I can work here and get better.” If you’re prepared to start by washing dishes, that kind of desire is very attractive.

CAREER

Who’s the boss? You are. Big boss. In her new book, Kathleen Brush explores her tough-as-nails leadership philosophy. Everyone seems to have an opinion on what it takes to be a successful leader, but Kathleen Brush wrote the book on it. The author spent years as a turn-around consultant, helping failing companies find their core issues and resolve them. We caught up with Brush to chat about “The Power of One: You’re the Boss,” her howto on being the boss. You book has some strong scenarios of poor leadership. Did you witness this behavior first hand? Yes, most definitely. I didn’t have to conjure up

any examples. It’s funny, I often hear people say, ‘You could have inserted my name in any anecdote, I do the same thing and I didn’t even realize.’

trouble. People want to do a good job. When delivered correctly, employees won’t feel like they’re in trouble — they’ll feel like they’re being coached.

So you saw many of the same problems surfacing at various companies? Sure, if you want to look at general problems. The particulars can be distinct. Often, though, companies forget that they need to reinvent themselves. When they lack strong leadership, it can be devastating to progress.

So how can people get it right? I tell people to put their coach hat on, not the big, bad boss hat. These managers come back and say it was a great experience. The one thing I really want people to understand is that to be successful as a boss, you can’t be the person you always disliked. You can’t be the jerk boss. Be the boss that people like and respect.

Isn’t that the core idea of your book? It is, without question. I’m trying to address a problem I see everywhere: Talented people who get into leadership because they’re a good account person, for example, but they’re lacking as a boss. Your book says that being

the boss means being straightforward with employees, which is difficult for many people. What advice do you have for better communication? I counsel people on this all the time because they’re afraid to tell people they’re not doing a good job. I tell them to put themselves in the employee’s shoes. People want to know if they’re not doing a good job and the company is in

What is the No. 1 thing you want people to take from the book? If they want to be a great leader, they can be.

Vote to end stop-andfrisk in November

Kelly acting like a reality TV host

We have not condemned Catholics for the actions of a few degenerate priests, or Italians for a few in organized crime or gun owners for a few crazed shooters. However, in New York City, we have leaders who condone a stop-andfrisk policy that denigrates citizens because of the color of their skin, a strategy that disparages our reputation for diversity. Harassing people based on race is no better than harassing people forced to wear a Star of David. Voters can end this heinous policy with their choice for mayor in November.

After the two perpetrators of the human tragedy in Boston were neutralized by Massachusetts and federal law enforcement, Ray Kelly wanted to jump on the bandwagon and get his kisser on the 6:00 news. The events in Boston were anomalies. New York needs a police chief who is interested in the well-being of all New Yorkers, not a reality TV host. BOB KEHL, VIA EMAIL

Boston pulls out OT win to extend series NBA playoffs. The Knicks can’t sweep the series in Boston as they drop Game 4 behind an ugly game from Anthony. The Knicks strolled into Boston’s TD Garden undermanned and ready to close out the series via a sweep, but ended up coming up just short in a 97-90 overtime defeat. New York now leads the series, 3-1, but had every intention of coming back home without the Celtics in tow. Paul Pierce and Jeff Green made sure the Celtics would be making a return trip to New York, as they poured in 29 points and 26 points, respectively. Kevin Garnett, who’s been battling a hip pointer all series, also came up big for a desperate Celtics team as he added 13 points and a game-high 17 rebounds. The Knicks almost pulled off a historic comeback as they stormed back from down 20 points in the third quarter and made it a nip-andtuck affair in the fourth quarter. Alas, it wasn’t meant to be for the Knicks, as they couldn’t get the necessary stops down the stretch — particularly on shots from Jason Terry (nine points in overtime) — or make the key buckets. It also didn’t help that

What we saw ...

SPORTS

1

Turn, turn, turn — The Knicks led the league in fewest turnovers (11.7) during the regular season, and were prudent in that category in the first three games. No so in Game 4, as they committed 15 turnovers — including 12 in the first half. They had more giveaways than field goals (11) in the first half.

2

Who benched J.R.? — J.R. Smith wasn’t seen by Knicks fans, as he was serving a one-game suspension for his errant elbow in Game 3. Smith was sorely missed, as the Knicks’ offense was stagnant, shooting 34.4 percent, and their bench was nonexistent.

Four and out

Heat sweep Bucks

3

Battle of the boards — The Knicks couldn’t rebound to pull off the historic comeback win, but they did rebound on the glass nicely by hammering the Celtics, 54-40. Iman Shumpert had an impressive 12 rebounds, while Tyson Chandler added 11 boards.

It looks like Monta Ellis’ prediction of the Bucks in six games was just a little off. Instead, LeBron James and the Heat swept Milwaukee out of the playoffs yesterday with an 88-77 victory in Game 4. The Heat were without Dwyane Wade, who missed the game with a knee injury, but James had 30 points in the win.

Carmelo Anthony went ice cold, shooting 10-of-35. “We would’ve liked to have both games, but we got one game,” Raymond Felton said. “That was our goal.”

MLB. Overbay gets to Dickey in seventh as Yankees sweep Jays On a day when the Yankees were mostly flummoxed by R.A. Dickey’s knuckleball, Lyle Overbay was not. He sent one into the Yankee bullpen beyond the right-center field wall for a two-run home run with two outs in the seventh inning to give

3

the Yankees a 3-2 victory over the Blue Jays. “He’s been important to us,” manager Joe Girardi said of Overbay. “He’s done a really nice job for us and we got a little bit lucky when he became available at the end of spring training.” LARRY FLEISHER

Kevin Garnett hit a 17-footer at the end of regulation to tie the game at 84-84 before the Celtics won in overtime. / NBAE, GETTY IMAGES

Uh-oh

Youkilis goes for MRI Kevin Youkilis has been scheduled to go for an MRI today. The Yankees third baseman played Saturday, but missed yesterday’s game with a sore back, after sitting out the previous six games. He has two homers and is batting .266 in 17 games. METRO

MLB. Mets swept by Phillies after Buck drops critical pop-up The Mets let a close game slip away from them in the seventh inning of a 5-1 loss. With the game tied at one and two outs in the inning, starting pitcher Jon Niese allowed a single to Laynce Nix after John Buck dropped what would’ve been the final

out on a foul pop. Jimmy Rollins followed with a single and then Ryan Howard knocked both in with a pinch-hit double. The Mets are now 1013 after being swept by Philadelphia. METRO

NHL firings begin The firings came early as the NHL regular season ended yesterday. Avalanche head coach Joe Sacco was the first coach to be fired, as his team missed the playoffs for the third straight season. Meanwhile, the Stars fired former Devils great Joe Nieuwendyk after four years as general manager.

Manning fine with Nassib selection The Giants pulled a rare surprise in the fourth round of the NFL Draft on Saturday when they moved up to select Syracuse quarterback Ryan Nassib. New York, of course, has Eli Manning as signal caller. Manning has yet to miss a start in his career, since taking over for Kurt Warner in 2004. The streak is now up to 135 games, the longest in the NFL. “I called Ryan yesterday and talked to him a little bit and welcomed him to the team,” Manning told Newsday at a March of Dimes event yesterday. “You always look forward to having young guys on the team, a young quarterback who will be in the meeting room.” METRO

‘MOST COMPLETE CORNERBACK’ dynamic of the Jets’ defense up front with [current linemen] Quinton Coples and Muhammad Wilkerson.

How does Dee Milliner, at No. 9 overall, fit into the Jets’ needs? He was the most complete cornerback in the draft. If anyone can play in the shadow of [Darrelle] Revis, Milliner has talent to do so. He will play opposite of [Antonio] Cromartie, as Kyle Wilson is not viewed as a dependable starter. What did you like about the player on tape? He’s a physical cornerback who excels in bump-and-run coverage. He has fluid hips and natural instincts [and] will step up and help against the run. What stands out as a concern? His footwork and fundamentals need improvement. Plus, he has just one year of starting experience [on the col-

What stands out as a concern? He struggles to hold the point of attack, [and] loses leverage against stronger linemen. He’s a junior college transfer so he is still developing as a player. He’s also coming off shoulder surgery.
