Now you get it?

Now wait a fucking minute. What the hell did James Dolan say the other day?

“Basketball is different than hockey,” Dolan said. “A great player in hockey is the difference, but a great player in basketball is the team."

What asshole?

It took you damn near a decade and that god awful Carmelo Anthony era for you to finally get it through your fucking head?

What did you think Donnie Walsh was doing?

What do you think I have been saying since the inception of this blog?
Now you get it?

After a book comes out detailing how Isaiah Thomas was behind the scenes working behind Donnie Walsh's back to get you to intervene and screw this team?

I hate this guy so much. Its because of him that I can never cheer for the Knicks again. The divorce is final and he got the team.

The Formula for the Knicks to Win NOW!

I stayed away from critiquing this team because Carmelo Anthony was finally gone and I thought the Knicks were going to have a chance to begin turning things around.

Well  after half a season there is one thing we know for certain and that is the Knicks can beat the Nets. Other than that they kind of suck.

It would have been nice had the Knicks gotten an entire season out of Porzingas and finally made the playoffs but I fear that KP might not be durable enough to last an entire season and that dramatically changes how the brain trust must think about assembling this team.

It seems to me that the only way to stop the likes of the Golden State Warriors and the Houston Rockets is an older version of basketball.

A version of basketball that slows the game down, plays defense first, second and third and has big men who can play the post to wear out a Raymond Green and Kevin Durant, Ryan Anderson and Clint Capela if they are ever going to compete for a championship any time soon.

Enough of Porzingas running around like he's a two guard or believing that he is the next Nowitzki. In order for the Knicks to win a championship before Joe Benigno retires from WFAN KP must become the next Larry Bird and the front office must look for the next Kevin McHale and Robert Parish either in free agency or the draft.

Who will be the future point guard between Ntilikina and Mudiay will sort itself out when we find out who is the smartest point guard not the most dynamic and athletic.

I am not certain if Hornacek is the coach that can take a reconfigured team built on size, defense and slowing the game down but if he can't he has to go.

The Knicks certainly can't grab and hand check like teams of yesterday but remember for the old Celtics it was about playing smart, moving without the ball and big men who knew how to play defense and position for rebounds. The exact formula that can in my opinion neutralize today's mega-teams.

The Knicks can very easily put such a team together very quickly with KP sliding perfectly into the Larry Bird role if you can brainwash the Dirk Nowitzki foolishness out of his mind.

That is the formula for the New York Knicks to win now. Let's see if they'll do the smart thing.

Are you afraid Knicks fans?

Although the Yankees seasoned ended last night in Houston there is still being hard ball played in New York and from a very unlikely source.

It is being reported by REALGM dot com that Kristaps Porzingis has stated that unless he sees major changes in the Knicks he will not accept the rookie extension and make himself available as a restricted free agent by 2018 and could potential test the market as an unrestricted free agent in 2020.

Are you afraid Knicks fans?

Well played Kristaps, well played.
