It's almost impossible for the team NOT to improve. When a team hits absolute rock bottom, there's nowhere to go but up.
With the Knicks talent, there is really no excuse for team not to be a .500 team. Even if you didn't coach them, the talent alone should get wins.
It's sort of a silly comment by Dolan. In my mind, Isiah has an easy free pass. The Knicks will get close to 40 wins and it will look like a "success", which is ridiculous.
