Nah - their expectations are different now. They’ve been terrible for too long and are about to strike out
But we've also said just that many times over and still suck for a long time. Rebuilding is the only thing we've ever done differently and being thirsty to sign injured max players has been done many times over as well. I'd rather keep doing things different. I mean sure, I wouldve loved a healthy Durant but I thibk it would be a major success if we didn't immediately go to option B, then C, then D, then E.
Everybody felt, including rival fanbases that the Knicks finally were on the right track with attempting to rebuild. Same haters bashed us for our typical NY assumptions of getting Kyrie and Durant even though it was the media feeding us. But now it's a disaster if we don't stay the original course? Were literally following your advice
Just because they’re trending upwards doesn’t justify striking out this summer - and especially to a cross-town rival.
I gotta admit I'd hate to see the Nets do big things while we dont but this thread was about the Lakers and Celtics. But even so what exactly are you prescribing. That the Knicks take yet thier 10th attempt at trading the farm or chasing shiny aging injured stars?
What lessons have you guys been trying to teach Knicks fans all these years if not to stay away from these exact situations? Should we do it and fail will any of you say " oh well, I wouldve made the same decision so I guess they arent still a mismanaged franchise"? Why dont the Hawks have to make a big splash in FA, why dont the Suns, Bulls.
The Nets are in the position they are in because they did exactly what the Knicks need to do. Stay quiet, hide in the shadows. Pounce when the time is right. The time was never right for the Knicks.
