Barkley talked smack on the Knicks, then Lebron got off the bench in the fourth and spanked the Knicks in the Garden.
I was sad to let go of season tickets over the summer, but when I look at our record, I’m glad I don’t have to sell games to a team that is now 4-17 and primed to tank the rest of the season to get a high draft pick in the 2015 lottery.
It seems like four games in a row now where the Knicks were close (Kenny Smith alluded during inside the NBA that the Knicks have been in about 11 games this season that could have been victories down the stretch but have not been) and give the ball to Melo for the Elbow three that isn’t even close.
Perhaps it is time for a new play Fisher?
Maybe get the ball to Amar’e who has been consistent on offense?
Speaking of STAT, that layup off the glass over STAT was a dagger by Irving.
(must see nail in the coffin @ 1:20 in the above video)
I feel like Irving is a young talent not unlike D Wade, LeBron was wise to come home to the Cavs and give it another shot.
As far as Melo resigning, yes, good, but don’t spend all of this season talking about “I should have gone to Chicago. Was almost going to go there.”
Who would you keep on this roster for future seasons?
I would keep very little.
Calderon is agining, I’d say get rid of everyone, including Melo. I know he has a no-trade clause, but if he goes to a contender in the West then this can all finally go away.
How many years will it take to rebuild the Knicks? There aren’t too many players under contract after this season. Barring mid season trades this year, the Knicks will just have the following players after next season:
Carmelo (with two years to go)
Calderon (in the final year of his contract)
Tim Hardaway (with a year to go)
Cleanthony Early (in the final year of his contract)
You know, after looking at this, I wonder if the results of the new collective bargaining agreement were to make contract lengths shorter?
