Ok, here is why the Knicks suck. This season, you had Isiah Thomas as head coach. You could be the Celtics or the Lakers, and with Isiah as your head coach, you would suck. He should never have ever started coaching, it ruined his entire reputation.
Here is what I am expecting this off-season from their staff.
July 16th: New York Knicks trade David Lee and a second round pick to the Suns for center Shaquille O'Neal.
That would be an insanely stupid trade now wouldn't it? Well that's probably a trade Walsh and the boys would make.
With that same staff, they will NEVER be a good team. Mike D'Antoni is definitely a big step up from Thomas though. I'm not a big D'Antoni fan but I mean hey, I could do a better job of coaching then Isiah.
On the players side of things, there is only a small bit of people on their entire roster they should keep. David Lee, Renaldo Balkman, Wilson Chandler, Mardy Collins and Randolph Morris.
David Lee puts his heart into every game and gives it his all. You don't have to keep all of the others, but hey, they are young and could turn into something. Everyone else they should trade and start from scratch.
Zach Randolph, Eddie Curry, Stephon Marbury, Jamal Crawford, Nate Robinson, Quentin Richardson. All of these guys have good value, trade them to contenders. OK, maybe not Robinson because he is not bad and is still developing.
Trade Randolph for a mediocre youngster and a second round pick. Trade Eddie Curry for a first rounder, Starbury for a second rounder, a mediocre youngster and cash, and Richardson for a second rounder. Trade Fred Jones and Jared Jeffries for a second rounder and cash, and Crawford for a second rounder and a decent youngster.
Or, trade some of those players together and get a couple of first rounders and a couple of decent players. You would be set! Release Malik Rose and Jerome James for some extra cap space, do some good scouting and draft well.
If all this can be done the New York Knicks could be a plus 500 team again!
But not with these idiots at the helm! It seems like such an easy concept, but for some reason, these so called basketball experts can't do squat.
