I do admit we would've sucked last year - just not that bad! We should have been a little under .500 with mediocre teams like the Magic and Sixers, not with bottom dwellers like the Bobcats and the Raptors.
How are you supposed to have any kind of success when your coach alienates just about every player on your team a third of the way through the season? LB would open his mouth to the media repeatedly about Thomas' players, even after Dolan begged him to stop. And wtf was with the starting lineups? The Knicks last year I believe used the most different starting lineups in NBA HISTORY. In HISTORY for God's sakes! And not b/c of injury problems! Think about that! Worst. Coaching. Job. EVER!!!
Yeah we won't exactly be chasing the 95-96 Bulls, but we'll win at least 35 wins next year. Still nothing to be proud of, but much better than last year - just watch.
