Knicks have gone 45 years without a championship, 1 playoff series win in nearly 19 years, 5 years with no playoff appearances, lottery bound for the 3rd time in 4 years, the worst owner in professional sports, $72 mil tied up in Joakim Noah, a clown president in Steve Mills who gave Tim Hardaway Jr. a $71 mil contract and the team features four less-than-stellar point guards. Knicks make the Cleveland Browns look like a model franchise, and there's no hope in sight.

Will you Knicks fans Trust the Process?

Can't trust the process if there is no process. Knicks are a joke.

You don't need to trust the process when you're in possession of The Unicorn.

You can however bash your head that Dolan is the team owner though.

Even though Dolan has pretty much stayed quiet recently, he (and his lackeys) still the Knicks biggest problem. Franchises that win consistently(Spurs, Patriots, Steelers, etc.) have smart owners who hire the right people, put them in the right positions and leave them alone. There's also ONE philosophy throughout the entire organization, a positive culture, player development and the team has an identity. During the Riley/Van Gundy years, we knew what the Knicks were. They haven't had an identity since, and their culture is beyond toxic.

During the championship years, the Bernard King years, the Riley/Van Gundy era, I was seriously into this franchise. I worked near MSG during the 90s, and when the Knicks were relevant, the area was jumping. But now I'm worn out and disgusted with nearly 20 years of nonsense. With the current front office and questions about Porzingis, there is nothing to be optimistic about.

I can't imagine how good that atmosphere could be if this team was halfway decent. But it's the Knicks and tourists will always attend despite them being terrible. Just recently a buddy of mine shared some pics of attending a game despite him being more in to baseball. Dolan's fine with the team not being good.

If there's one team I'd wish a owner/management change for, it's the Knicks followed by replacing the front office of the Bulls. These two teams should be prime attractions in the league. The Lakers started their rebuild after the Knicks and the Knicks still have only KP and overpaid Hardaway to show for it. No real identity, no stability on the coaching staff, no real direction from the front office...

....and yet, the Knicks are one of the richest franchises in professional sports. We are so f****d.

This team is LIGHT YEARS away from getting to Philly's level.

Selfishly, I'd like to see Mark Jackson hired because I'm not a fan of his commentary, but I think Blatt would be a fine choice. I feel he got a raw deal in Cleveland.

Knicks will be looking for their 11th head coach since 2001. What a garbage franchise.

LOL @ Mills preaching patience and no more quick fixes. He's the assclown who, after TWO weeks into the job, gave Hardaway that ridiculous contract.

High turnover in the position aside, should Hornacek have been kept around longer? What's the general opinion as far as he's concerned?

Hornacek was dead-man-walking all season, Andrew. Knicks wanted to get rid of anyone associated with Phil.

But their biggest problem is an inept front office that can't pick the right players, no matter who's in charge. You've seen it for yourself, who the Knicks drafted and who they passed on, Donovan Mitchell being the latest. Philly figured it out. It took Golden State 40 years, but eventually they figured it out too.

I reckon Blatt, though whoever they go with, the front office obviously has to give them a decent roster to work with.

They'll likely go after a coach that will easily acquiesce to the management's whims and demands without raising much of a fuss.

Don't know about Wright's personality but that leaves out Fizdale, Jackson, and Stackhouse.

But then that will still leave Reggie to commentate on games. Tough call.
