This organization needs to follow the Indiana Pacers blue print imo. However long it will take NY'ers can wait a few years longer.
hey hey hey...I liked Telfair lol He chose to make that Chinese money which is more lucrative than being an NBA journeyman nowadays. Can't blame him when your home state shits on you to sign a bum like Pablo Prigioni.
Another sad thing about the Knicks is, even if we were to get a top 5 pick in this upcoming draft, it still may not yield the expected results.
#1 When's the last time we've drafted a superstar? Patrick Ewing?
#2 There's a bunch of rumors suggesting that at least 3 of the "can't miss" prospects may return for their sophomore seasons...maybe longer.
#3 While the freshman have been good, I can't say any have impressed me as much as Melo did when he was at Syracuse lol. I guess maybe Parker.
#4 While Knickscity is smitten at the thought of Melo's departure, only a fool would think he is our biggest problem. We still have Amare and Tyson. Two HUGE contracts and very little production from either. We still need a coach. We still need a PG. We still have a horrendous front office who overpays for bums and can't bring in young, healthy talent on a consistent basis.
