What a disgrace

No Gasol, No Kobe and No Nash and the Knicks got fucking destroyed.

What a disaster.

The season officially ended last night because all heart and guts have left the building.

What a disgrace.

Fortunately NBA League Pass has adopted condensed versions of games so now Knicks fans only have to endure 30 minutes of despair instead of two hours worth.

The Same Old Sorry Bunch

In the fourth quarter of last night's game all that Phil Jackson pass the ball move the man magic wore off and the Knicks went right back to the Anthony isolation game and promptly gave up the lead and lost.

The audition is over for these guys and maybe including Anthony.

This one man gang isolation offense is too ingrained in this group of players for anything to change going forward.

Unfortunately its not like the Knicks have any money, cap space or draft picks to maneuver.

This squad has to suck it for another season for things to start getting better unless Anthony takes his talents elsewhere.

There is nothing that any coaching or early morning meditation is going to change. It's the same old sorry bunch.

Slow down partner

I listened to the Phil Jackson press conference and learned two things. No, really I did.

First, James Dolan had the guts to admit that he was out of his element running the Knicks and didn't know what the hell he was doing. Now if you are a regular reader of this blog this is nothing new to me but to state it publicly is the first step to recovery for Dolan and the Knicks as an organization.

The second thing I learned is Phil Jackson has no basketball faerie dust. He has nothing in his satchel that he can toss a handful of and magically make this a better team next season.

Jackson clearly stated for anyone bothering to listen that the team you see today is for all intents and purposes the team that you will see next year.

Jackson took a very long pause when asked about the security of Woodson's job which means that he was searching for a nice way to say that Woody has about 16 games left as head coach of the New York Knicks.

Jackson wants the triangle offensive philosophy implemented because he believes that it will raise Carmelo Anthony's game. Woodson knows nothing about the triangle so nice knowing you coach.

What happened during the press conference that was nothing new was the jackbooted thug mentality of the Knicks media policy. New York Daily News writers were waived off, again, when they wanted to ask questions. I am no fan of Isola or Lupica but they are a part of the press and deserve to have their questions addressed. There is still some cowardice at Madison Square Garden.

Knicks fans desperate for any ray of hope will be jumping for joy that Phil is running the Knicks which in their minds means that a championship is just a few weeks away. Slow down partner.

The Knicks still won't have any cap room after this season and if they did there aren't any great free agents anyway. The Knicks don't have a first round draft pick until this time next year and Carmelo Anthony has stated publicly that Phil Jackson being President of the team has no bearing on his desire to test the free agent market.

Knicks fans you will have a new coach next season and I am sure you will begin the season with optimism but realistically your team still has a lot of losing to do before getting remotely better.

The little Dutch Boy would lose his mind

Why are the Knicks leaking reports of their efforts to reach out to Phil Jackson before the man gives a definitive answer to their supposed proposition?

Is it to keep Anthony here since they have no draft picks or cap space to acquire new players? Or is it to appear to the fans that management is attempting to make efforts to change while at the same time shaming Phil Jackson before he gives an answer?

Maybe Dolan does not really want Phil to say yes and keep himself in position of running the team?

The little Dutch Boy would lose his mind trying to keep up with all the leaking.

I almost fainted on the subway

In today's New York Daily News, our favorite Knicks beat writer Mike Isola wrote a surprisingly interesting article.

Mike wrote about the topic that I have been making an argument for almost a year now which is the Knicks would be better off allowing Carmelo Anthony to leave.

 I couldn't believe it. I almost fainted on the subway.

Isola made some very familiar points about how it would be in both parties best interest to shake hands and part ways.

Isola unfortunately did not go far enough in his argument.

It is not enough to start over. If James Dolan does manage to have the balls to let Anthony leave and face rebuilding does he also have the courage to fire all the nice sycophants in management and turn over all basketball operations to a basketball mastermind?

That management turn over must also include "reassigning" likeable folk like Allen Houston, John Starks and Larry Johnson to basketball ambassador roles having nothing to do with the running of the team, free agent negotiation or talent evaluation. Those nice guys must go too.

The entire Knicks organization must be blown up from the management offices to the locker room for the light at the end of the tunnel to final turn into hope for the fans instead of the speeding train they have been hit with for the past 14 years.

What had happened?

Don't tell me these bastards lost again?

I saw the Knicks score just before turning on my Nets and they had like a 15 point lead. What had happened?

These Knicks fans on the radio sound like they need the toll free number to the suicide hotline.

I want to say that I really feel sorry for you guys...but I can't. LOL I'm fuckin' lovin' this. I can't wait to watch this tomorrow morning while I'm on my exercise bike.

Anthony and all

I had to wait almost 24 hours before logging today's post.

I was actually sitting on the john this morning thinking about a very realistic lineup the Knicks could have right now had it not been for the meddling of James Dolan.

Brandon Jennings at the point, Wilson Chandler at the two, Gallinari at the three, David Lee at the four and Jordan Hill and Mosgov sharing the center position. That team would wax the hell out of the current Knicks Anthony and all.

That team would also be clearly the third best team in the East and well over .500.

What a freaking disgrace this franchise has become.

Now the talk is who might replace Mike Woodson and will Carmelo Anthony stay.

If Anthony decided to stay for the extra 30 million he could get paid, after taxes and agent fees that 30 million will actually be around 10 million dollars.

Anthony has to ask himself right now if playing for a team that has a genuine chance of winning a championship is worth 10 million to him in real dollars. Ask Patrick or Charles Barkley if they'd give up that much for a ring.

As for Mike Woodson, let's face it, it doesn't matter who the next coach is. If Dolan isn't going to shut up and get out of the way of a real GM and coach then his meddling will just crush whatever any new coach attempts to do to turn this garbage barge around.

The ultimate problem with this team is ownership and sycophants.

I am waiting for reports of a fist fight in that locker room to top this season off right.

My name is James and I need help

I'm really beginning to get tired of writing these posts. Can we once and for all declare that this is the worst team and most poorly run franchise in the NBA?

The junky never begins to get better until he or she admits that their lives are in a dark shitty hole.

The Knicks are in a dark shitty hole, when is Dolan or the GM whatever his name is finally going to admit it.

I want Dolan to step to the podium and say "My name is James, and I am a horrible owner and I need help".

Until that happens they can toss hundreds of millions of dollars into renovations and on one dimensional players and it won't matter one bit. The team and its fans will be that much longer in that dark shitty hole.

Maybe one of Dolan's sycophants will have the balls to call for an intervention and have the courage to speak up before the commissioner hauls him off to rehab.

I doubt it though.
