Granted they're still in NY, which is a huge draw, since it's America's city. But still, it's commendable what they've done.
It really wasn’t long ago that I said “hey, at least we’re not the Nets”.
There’s still totally a chance it blows up in their faces. Those aren’t the safest signings and I have doubts that Durant/Kyrie/DAJ is a championship core.
But it’s damn sure an amazing improvement.
Let me remind you, it was only 3 years ago! That's an insane turnaround, considering how rock bottom they were, it was arguably the worst situation before Marks came in. I think they had Thad Young as their only youngish talent with no draft picks?
But yes, a good chance that it may implode, but they haven't gave up any picks like Billy King has done, so I think it will be fine.
