Default Why do the Knicks suck so bad when it comes to Free Agency.

The fact that one player in NYK's Big Three is even worth his overpaid money is just laughable. They pay 19 Million for a bench player who doesn't mesh well with the main scorer on the team. Macus Camby and Steve Novak get paid 4 Million respectively to do nothing but warm the bench. New York is on the verge of losing their 2nd Best Player and they will likely NOT resign him because he is worth more than the Knicks have to offer.





For a team that is regarded as a top franchise and location for Free Agents, they sure can make some outrageous contracts for crap players.

No one regards them as a top franchise.

They are not a top location based on their past management. They are in a large market so feel the need to pay big to get a name just to fill the seats. I'm sure most players consider this problem before signing with them as it makes them unlikely to develop their own talent (as they will trade it just for a big name) and unlikely to actually build a team that works.

not a large market, THE LARGEST MARKET. Make NOOOOO mistake about it, the Knicks play in the tourism capital of America, the marketing capital of America and the banking capital of America.

Maybe if Dolan spent less money on chasing peaked out all-stars and more on coaching and scouting.

Their management style reminds me of the rich guys who shower used up trash girls with money and gifts to go with them and then wonder why they never perform well and aren't into them.

Their logo : Sign famous people to attract fans, when in reality they need to hire knowledgeable coaching staff, and sign good players.

I don't think the Knicks will win a championship this century.

They passed on Stephen Curry.
