The New York Knicks' Step-by-Step Guide to the Offseason
Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

It’s clear to all who watch the sport: The New York Knicks have to take steps this summer towards greater success next spring.

What remains a tad unclear is this: What types of steps should these Knicks take?

Should the Knicks take giant steps as John Coltrane did, toying with the fabric of their franchise and rewriting the rules of championship construction? Or should the Knicks take every little step with care, quietly locking eyes with prospective candidates as Bobby Brown did with his mistresses?

Should the Knicks perform revisionist plans to a rhythmic step by step, like the fantastic Suzanne Somers sitcom or the hit track from those New Kids on the Block? Or should the Knicks’ steps be more measured and calculated, reflecting the instructions of Will Smith to a nervous Kevin James in the movie Hitch?

As with all teams, New York must clarify their summer strategy sooner than later. Free agency is fast approaching and those draft prospects ain’t getting any younger. Today, let’s chart a course for the orange and blue collective, help them make sharp decisions and avoid risky business.
