We have what equates to a D league team right now. Melo seems to be a shell of himself in comparison to prior seasons. JR and Shump are gone!!! Tyson Chandler is gone!! I mean what is going on??? Now, don't get me wrong I wasn't and I'm still not a huge fan of Shump or JR but damn!!! What the hell is Phil doing????? I mean come on man!!! As a fan of the Knicks, I feel robbed in some way. I try and sit down to watch each game but I always end up changing the channel. As bad as they are, I try to be a "true" fan and stick with it from beginning to end. But, it's hard!! Everyday, when I'm driving to and from accounts for work I listen to ESPN radio and nobody and I mean NOBODY has anything good to say about the team. They threw the former coach under the bus. They threw the former players under the bus. They threw the owner under the bus. They threw the gm under the bus. Nothing has changed this season. And I guess the thing that irks me the most is that much of what has been said this season I agree with. When Colin Cowherd says Melo is selfish....how is it hard not to agree?? When Michael Kay says they're playing like Dogs....how is it hard not to agree?? When Stephen A. Smith says the Knicks snubbed a Rondo trade....how is it hard not to agree??? As much as it annoys me that the team has a depressing record, wanting them to lose make sense in terms of their future.
So, here I am. Disgruntled!! A fan nonetheless!! Are the Knicks going to win 20 games this season?? 10? The way that they've been playing I'd put my money on NO to both. Phil took a lot of the blame and responsibility for the demise of this team. He says he has a plan B. Melo says he believes in the plan. What else can you say? Nothing I guess...just sit, wait and watch!!
