Default Why aren't the Knicks better?

Watch them play the Spurs last night and damn they are mostly young, talented and TALL. The had a height advantage at nearly every position. There is some real talent on that team.

Terrible Point Guard whose a backup at best, and no center.

The team is bad because the franchise is one of the worst in the NBA.

Actually, we're in one of the best positions next year. The worst was 06-08.

Lack consistency, no shot blockers on the team, too many jumpshooters, no true big men, Duhon shouldn't be starting....

But they've been playing better recently.

You are missing the point. The NYK's, as a franchise, is terrible. They consistently make bad decisions. Every once in a while the team has a decent season, but the franchise continues to flounder.

Darko is day dreaming about going back to Serbia while he's on the bench. The dude has no motivation to play whatsoever.

We lack a player that can take over games and score when it counts.

Not really, we were in the finals not long ago. We actually have 2 championships when other teams don't even have one.

If you look at the roster,
You need a centerpiece/foundation like a Nash, Duncan, Kobe to build on. They got none.
You need leadership, They got none.
They need good shooters on D'antoni's offense. They got too many jumpshooters who aren't good shooters. Gallanari is their best shooter.
No one of that team can play a single defense.
Only 2010 can save the Knicks.

They're a great supporting cast missing a star player.
