When one team rises another will Fall. Teams nearing the end of their window - Toronto, Washington, Cleveland
No need to be so reactionary.
Rather have bud go to MKE than Toronto where that'd all but confirm us being fourth in the Atlantic division forever.
Knicks will lucky to be 4th. More like 5th when Chicago, which looks better already, will be ahead of us also.
I'm just sort of in a bad mood today, but this isn't really any different feelings from what I've had since last year. The team blows, Phil set the team back several years in the rebuild. The good thing he did was not dealing picks. IF this front office can stay on that track, at least there is a small glimmer of hope the team won't totally suck in a few years. I was all for Phil getting hired as I figured he'd bring in a system where players shared the ball and played defense, plus I figured he knew talent and team oriented players enough to be able to build a team. Instead he showed the same lack of player assessment and inability to manage salary as every other GM/President the Knicks have had for 20 years, making his first mistake in resigning Melo, then doubling and tripling down on trying to "compete" with the signing of CLee (not a bad deal in and of itself) and the horrendous Noah deal. Now it's 30 million dollars of "meh" for a lottery team. Then Mills comes in with his "hold my beer" moves and ties up another 22 million between THJr and Baker.
Looks at this squad: Noah, THJr, CLee, Baker, LFT: Off the top of my head, that's 56 million. Half the cap on that. Unreal. Way to go Phil\Mills.
Perry better be a miracle worker. Honestly, he's starting with one hand tied behind his back for two years.
