Last night, the Knicks, and their dime store version of a super team, lost to the Detroit Pistons, 102-89. The early reviews of the 1-2 Knicks are bad, and none of their often injured, high priced free agents are even hurt yet.
Who could have guessed that pairing a declining, ball dominating point guard like Derrick Rose would be a bad fit with ball dominating forward Carmelo Anthony, and budding star Kristaps Porzingis? Everyone.
Last night, high priced off-season signing Joakim Noah summed up the current state of the Knicks with a jumper that was so ugly, it may make you physically ill. Noah’s no shooter, but damn that’s rough. Easy on the green light there, Joakim.
If you want to see a basketball team loaded with overpriced, over-the-hill talent, with no direction for the future, pull up a seat. Phil Jackson has put together the team for you. This Knicks team is going to be a mess, and they’re just scratching the surface.
