I doubt it if Carmelo's sticks to his guns about Houston. He holds the cards.


UPDATE - Carmelo to OKC for Kanter, McDerrmont and a draft pick. How about that Andrew?

I don't disagree with what's being said on the subway, I wouldn't of signed Hardaway at that price, I like many was optimistic that Noah had an off year the season before and would be better sure but it is what it is. It's New York's version of a rebuild

"Hopeless" is a perfect description of this garbage franchise.....bad owner, crap front office, clueless team president.

$72 mil for Joakim Noah, $71 mil for Tim Hardaway Jr........smh

I love this quote from Stefan Bondy in today's Daily News;

"It's hypocritical for Perry and president Steve Mills to declare defense as central to their new identity, and then acquire Tim Hardaway Jr., Michael Beasley, Enes Kanter and Doug McDermott. Sunday's 117-83 embarrassing preseason defeat to the Nets served as a reminder of the possibilities for New York's putridness."


....same ol' Knicks.

With Isiah Thomas long gone from the front office, they'll actually hold onto it instead of giving it to the Bulls, too.

lol at D'Antoni playing Harden until the final buzzer of a preseason game vs the Knicks. He's still mad being fired by the Knicks.

Good to see Beasley is still a blackhole on offense.

My only concern right now is the durability of our young players, Frank and KP just seem to pick up injury after injury

The way these clowns play defense, they'll be lucky to win 20 games. Pitiful.

Obviously no longer an issue now that he's gone, but further examples of how Phil Jackson wasn't exactly the best fit for the Knicks: Knicks Rumors: Phil Jackson Stunned Free Agents with Lack of Preparation as GM

"I heard some horror stories about Phil in presentation situations with players – unprepared, just disorganized. And sometimes, he’d have Steve Mills in there, who'd try to re-direct him. But I know of a couple players who walked out of meetings in a couple different free-agent scenarios and, 'Wow, that was Phil Jackson? That's not how I imagined he'd be.'"


After the trade deadline passed on Feb. 23, Frank Isola of the New York Daily News said one NBA general manager told him his team "can't get a hold of Phil. It's crazy."

ESPN NBA analyst Jay Williams said prior to the draft in June that a top prospect told him Jackson was "falling in and out of sleep" during the player's workout.


Stuff like that makes me think that Phil took the job because he always wanted to be involved with the Knicks in some capacity, but by the time the opportunity came about, he was getting on in years and he just couldn't make the necessary commitment. Understandable, but it did mean he took the Knicks' money to do a half-hearted job (at least in some respects).

Again, obviously what's done is done and he's gone now, but I think it demonstrates that despite some of his better moves here and there, it was definitely time for them to part ways. The front office may still stuck, but the Knicks need someone who's all in, and that wasn't Jax.

Andrew, Phil Jackson sold James Dolan, the Knicks organization and fan base a bill of goods. We all cheered when he was hired - we felt someone with his pedigree would finally end the dysfunction at MSG. We thought he'd do for NY what Pat Riley did for Miami. Boy, were we wrong. Phil added to the chaos - he had no idea on how to be a GM.

Not firing him before the draft is going to haunt this franchise. I think Smith was the way to go.

Yup seems like he basically sold people on his name

I'm sure he wanted to do a good job and meant well, but he didn't want to do what what was necessary to do a good job

Had he taken the job years ago, maybe it would've been a different story. As it is, it seems he was too close to stepping away and enjoying his retirement to go all in. Fair enough given his age and long tenure in the NBA, but the Knicks needed more of him.

He was more concerned of forcing the triangle upon the coach than managing the team.

Why in the hell do the Knicks have a national TV game on Thursday, like "Yeah, we're featuring this team"?
