All the Knicks have left is the future, and they must protect their assets that can help them when the future arrives. Hardaway, Jr. is first on that list. Dealing him would be a dire mistake.
How is it humanly possible that the Knicks have not sat down with the foundation of their franchise? How have they not asked him about the future and what kind of teammates he wants to play with?
Anthony sounds like he’ll give the Knicks a legit shot. But there’s the possibility that he’s creating cover for himself with a scenario where he can leave New York without looking like the bad guy.
Without many valuable assets to trade, one that can still bring something valuable back in a deal is Tyson Chandler.
With a thick veil of secrecy surrounding Madison Square Garden at all times, there’s no way of figuring out what the Knicks organization is actually thinking at any given moment.
The Knicks need to be all in on a point guard sooner rather than later. Wait until 2015? In this case, patience might not be a virtue.
I don’t think anyone honestly believes the Knicks will reach the second round of the playoffs under Woodson. Maybe it could happen under someone else, but there’s only one way to find out.
It’s games like the one Monday night against Milwaukee that make Knicks fans wonder why they waste energy investing passion into this team during modest win streaks.
There aren’t a lot of teams in either conference that are real fits for the Knicks if they decide they have to trade Carmelo Anthony and start a genuine rebuild.
These are not rumors, but rather scenarios that work financially for both sides inside the CBA, and could be feasible in a theoretical world.
With Mike Woodson’s inability or unwillingness to find a way to use Bargnani well, his injury helps the team by default.
James Dolan can stay away from New York as long as he wants, but over the next 27 days, preferably sooner than later, the conversation is going to happen.
There really isn’t any point in watching anymore. The small details might change from night to night, but the Knicks always find a way to lose.
If they haven’t already, the Knicks need to find out what Anthony is thinking so they can act accordingly. Any way you cut it, the Knicks do not provide a bright future for Anthony.
Woodson’s future as head coach is on the line, and perhaps even Anthony’s future as a Knick. That’s how important the next 15 days are to the future of this franchise. They better take advantage of it.
