It's always an option. I just dont get it.If some of you are not rooting for the team to win than why watch at all?

i know intellectually that we need to be as bad as possible to get better

but its still gonna be hard to see us be humiliated and used by every team in the league

This is the painful dilemma of every involved Knicks fan.

I will go into each game looking more at player development, teamwork and defense. The score will be an afterthought .. unless we start winning games. Then I don't know what I'll do.

I thought you can carry up to 20 players on your roster during the offseason?

Knicks could waive / trade some guys to get the roster down by the time the season rolls around.

I suppose. But this is the sort of trade that doesn't really happen—too many moving parts.

Yeah there are a lot of pieces. But at least it's just between the two teams and doesn't require anyone else to get involved.

I like that OKC team after this deal and I like the Knicks actually doing a true rebuild instead of this half ass garbage of letting vets win you meaningless games in a rebuilding year.

Only drama in this game is if Westbrook gets enough steals for a quadruple double. Or turnovers, because Frank.

I'm thinking IF we do a OKC trade for Melo (I doubt it tho), a 3rd team will likely be involved. Either to flip some of the assets, or convert to future assets.
