Not drafting Lawson
Not drafting Lawson
That we never learn from any of our mistakes
Can't put a nice team together with 100 mil a year payroll
Need a coaching and player change, and our owner thinks otherwise
If Melo wanted to stay we would probably pay him the 28-30 mil year he wants which imo is insane
Dolan, Dolan, Dolan, and Dolan...
The Jordan Hill draft, where we just missed out on Curry and then passed on Lawson.
Right now, knowing we dealt away a lottery pick, that could turn out to be a stud this year. That pick, along with a lottery next year, could have been a key to our team for a decade. If Jabari Parker or some stud, goes to DEN b/c of us... And Melo walks... Yikes.
All the reasons which made "HC Pat Riley" quit on us after taking the Knicks to the FINALS.
We dont invest in the productivity of our draft picks (rookies), to improve their level of college-ball skills into NBA b.ball skillz.
We havnt invest in improving our Tier-4 coaching-staff since the hiring of Pat Riley in the 90's.
Our coaching-staff has been inferior to the 29 teams in the NBA for practically two decades.
The Knicks management, coaching-staff, and players have not been on the "same-page" since Red Holzman Championships in New York.
Our owner James Dolan have a habit of throwing everything in one bucket to get a celebrity headcoach, and a celebrity top 10 (jersey selling) star-player to fill (19,800) seats in MSG.
This type of plan has been good in a bussiness aspect to sell tickets and Knicks-jersey in a big-market New York city. However, its a sorry plan when it comes to building a winning contender TEAM in the NBA.
Forbes ranked the Knicks the richest and most valuable franchise in the NBA. You would think that they could win a championship with all the money they make esp after 50 years.
Dolan is a bonehead but the fans are also for buying the crap product the Knicks have been putting out there with pathetic teams over the years.
If the fans stopped going to the Garden and the Knicks and MSG started losing money maybe Dolan would get fired and the Knicks could get somewhere.
This is the most important thing everyone should realize.
Stop watching the Knicks on MSG, don't buy any merchandise and really get people around you to stop supporting the management.
We can support the team from the distance but we must boycott the front office and not let them win anymore.
Ultimately it boils down to what their bottom-line is....
They could give a rats behind and I'm pretty sure this filters down to the players....especially those who are in tight with the suits.Quote:
The New York Knicks aggressively court the presence of their celebrity fans by reserving six prime courtside seats for three V.I.P.'s and their guests called Celebrity Row, along with other excellent seats.
“If you’re an A-level person and we know the fans are going to go bananas when your picture goes up on the scoreboard, then there’s a value having you there,” said Barry Watkins, the Madison Square Garden company’s executive vice president for communications and administration. “We think it’s a big part of the brand. Win or lose, it’s one of the reasons people come to the games.”
The Garden has an ad-hoc celebrity-handling team that determines who counts as a celebrity and how to pursue relationships with those people or their representatives.
The quid pro quo is to be agreed to be filmed at your seat for broadcast on GardenVision, while some agree to work for the Knicks' Garden of Dreams foundation, which helps disadvantaged and ill young people.
