What is your darkest Knicks moment?

For me, it was probably that two year stretch when we were eyeing 2010 free agency but had Curry and Jeffries on contract for basically the whole time.

No doubt the Isiah years were worse. But I didn't have internet or cable at the time, so I wasn't spending free time on Knicks.

So just saying for me, 2008-2010 was probably my darkest time. I would go on the school computers and look up salaries on HoopsHype trying to make hypothetical trades that dumped Curry and Jeffries all the time.

EDIT:

When the Knicks traded for Bargs, at the point, it just became a joke to me. Like a psychotic laughing at his misery.

We’ve been in a pitch black cave since the turn of the century, I don’t think you could pick any part of it that’s darker than the rest. Every now and then a candle is lit and then quickly extinguished
