There were no brash comments or predictions about turning the Knicks into a championship-caliber team overnight. This was stuff the fans needed to hear.
The Knicks finished with the second-worst record in the NBA behind Minnesota, meaning they have a 19.9 percent chance of landing the No. 1 overall pick during the lottery.
“For Knicks fans here, what you want is somebody who has a plan, who has a theory on how to build a team over time.”
There were times, Carmelo Anthony acknowledges, he wondered if he made the right decision to stay in New York.
The ping-pong balls bounce in May. The draft happens in June. Free agency starts in July. The Knicks need to do well in all three. The rebuild starts now.
The annual eulogy is real, just like the Knicks are really bad. Their ignominious run of wretched basketball is rolling out like a red carpet.
The Knicks have already lost 63 games this season. What’s four more?
The Knicks have a franchise-worst 63 losses and counting. But James Dolan still thinks his franchise is on a Straight Shot to the top.
Knicks fans should still believe in Jackson, despite the team’s failures this season. He has the chance to build this team from scratch, and everyone needs to give him a chance to do it.
Jackson’s remark was met with laughter at a town hall meeting Thursday night, the Daily News reported. But not everyone was amused.
Once the Knicks are put out of their misery in the next two weeks, attention will finally completely shift to the players the Knicks can get in the draft and in free agency.
Despite the misery of this season, the Basketball Hall of Famer is confident that things can turn around quickly for the lowly ‘Bockers.
The Knicks and Nets are taking a beating — not just on the court and from fans, but also from the experts at the “worldwide leader.”
When can New Yorkers expect the Knicks to be relevant again? Nothing they’ve done this year injects any hope. At 13-53 they make you ashamed to say you’re from the five boroughs.
To say the first season under Phil Jackson has not gone well for the Knicks is a gigantic understatement. They are simply terrible and don’t appear to be on the road to recovery any time soon.
