Not much has changed. The Knicks are still the same old Knicks.
Clueless ownership hiring bad management personnel and having no direction.
With players laughing on the bench as their team was being slaughtered, most notably Eddie Curry, it is apparent that they do not have a leader, have too many players who do not take losing seriously enough and have Marbury who is a locker-room cancer with out any idea of how to lead a team to a victory, much less to the playoffs or beyond.
The first step the Knicks need to take is to replace Marbury with a competent point guard who can lead and play defence. If Isiah lasts long enough to see that happen, he needs to discipline Curry and others and to explain that they are here to win and not to enjoy losing. Either get serious or get shipped out. Nobody is untradeable.
It may get somewhat better; but do not count on getting into the playoffs or going any further until things change dramatically. And with CableBlindness' James ("its-Optimum-or-its-the-Knicks") Dolan in charge, that is very unlikely.
It is going to be a long season.

They lost respect for Isiah and they hate Marbury.
They will not play for Isiah and do not want to play with Marbury. Even if they try hard, you can't cover up those feelings, the proof is in the final result.
Until Isiah is fired and Marbury is gone expect the rest of the season to be just like this.
This season is officially over. There is no way any team can come back from this, they have hit rock bottom and are sinking even deeper into despair.
I have never seen anything like this in sports, a total collapse due to mismanagement and one player who is the biggest cancer in basketball.
You have to point a finger directly at Marbury, he ran out on his team and there is no excuse for that.
calm down man. the season doesnt end tomorrow man. and stop blaming marbury for everything man. q hasnt done anything this season he hasnt defended and he cant hit a open jumper, randolph is averagin close to 4 turn overs a game. when they get it rollin dont jump on the bandwagon. they will get this fix up.
