I hate how the Knicks do business they are very poorly run and it starts with ownership. Its not a coincidence they keep getting the worst contract in the sport on the roster. U can dress it up all u want but when u have all that cap space and trade every pick u can until 2017 I expect more then this. If the Knicks had this roster and still had the flexibility in draft picks to make deals I would be fine. They have put together a mediocre roster with no flexibility to get better. They are stuck until next season when they trade Amare for Steve Nash or Rudy Gay with draft picks through 2022 or something ridiculous like that. It will be name inefficient or really old player thats all I know.
Your right I would love to blow it up but I know they cant. Without owning draft picks thats not an option. 2015 reboot is a joke also now. Once u factor in Contracts, cap holds that we have to renounce if we want space ,Shumps extension the Knicks are left with 1 max deal and 9 more roster spots to fill.
those 2 took us to 6 games? wtf bro did you even watch the series? you can't be serious with this nonsense. they needed overtime to steal a game at home that JR was suspended in. last i checked amare didn't play a single game in the series. but yea it was just pierce and garnett out there by themselves.
can't stand when people post stat lines as if they mean anything either. pierce is done. he's a glorified spot up shooter at this point. if you'd take him and garnett over anyone else on our team you're banking on 2 old dude's staying healthy and not rapidly declining over upside and potential.
take your debbie downing elsewhere. the knicks had 1 legit season together and made it to the 2nd round. i can't stand fans like you. rather than enjoy the season you'll be dreading the eventual loss in the playoffs. weren't you the guy that predicted we'd fall down to the 6/7 seed? yea it was you.
who are all these other teams that are run better anyways? i've referenced this countless times and you never address it. the league is riddled with teams that have been rebuilding for years and years and have nothing to show for it. the bulls? they have a cheap owner that will never spend the money to put a team around rose. the heat? they got lucky that the superfriends teams up. the pacers? they traded kawai leonard to overpay a scrub george hill. other than the spurs and thunder i don't even know who you're talking about. go down the list of champions over the past 20 years and how many of them had anything to do with what you're talking about?
lakers? they lucked into kobe demanding to only play for them.
who are you talking about? who are these teams that are run so much better? i'm genuinely curious.
the grass always seems greener on the other side.
battered fan syndrome is a very real thing. i'm fortunate in that i never put any emotion into the knicks during the isiah years. i can understand why someone would have your way of thinking after living through that.

J.R. Smith had patella tendon surgery & arthroscopy for a tear in the lateral meniscus, of his left knee, at the HSS in NYC, #Knicks say.

Recovery time for JR Smith is approximately 12-16 weeks, #Knicks say.
that's actually good news to me. shows the reason he struggled so much in the playoffs.
tyson was sick, melo had a torn labrum, jr had a torn meniscus and amare hardly played....
but yea... the pacers are so much better. if the knicks are healthy they destroy the pacers.
jr will be back early in the season. jr is a tough dude playing through that. unlike a well known asian pg.
knicks are cursed though i swear... that's 3 years in a row now the knicks were riddled with injuries in the playoffs.
the knicks had a very legit shot last year if everyone was healthy.
