The New York Knicks don't need LeBron to return to their age of glory. They need a team of hungry players who give it their all every time they step on the court, and whose passion and dedication are felt throughout Madison Square Garden.
The best Knicks were the ones who embodied New York, who were not flashy superstars, but tough and hard-working role players. They were the players who electrified the crowds, who hustled back on defense and passed to the open man on offense. We knew their strengths and weaknesses as players, and loved them just the same. When these Knicks were on fire, we were excited to be there with them. When they struggled, we felt their pain, and tried to ignite their play with our cheers.
Here are the five Knicks I think should rejoin the team. Yes, they are past their prime. But in just a few games, they could help electrify the Knicks and send them to a winning season once again.
