With the way this team has been playing throughout the past year it will probably be another 10 or 15 years until this franchise gets going in the right direction. Jim Dolan isn't going to sell the Knicks before he takes his last breath and as long as he owns them they will have rosters that are plagued with over paid losing players who lack heart, chemistry, toughness and a winning mentality.
There was a time in which I loved watching this team. During the days of Ewing, Oakley, Starks, Sprewell, and Camby this team never use to fail to play tough every game and beat teams on a consistent basis. Even if their chances of winning an NBA championship weren't great back then they were far from being the laughing stock or joke of the NBA. I felt that I was entitled as a Knicks fan to root for a team that was guaranteed to make the playoffs every year and win a round or two.
But going through the years of Scott Layden, Isiah Thomas, and Mike D'antoni it has made me question why I became a Knicks fan in the first place and why I've gone almost 11 years of my life having this false hope that the Knicks would some how become half the team that attracted me to them. All they have caused their fans throughout this time period is disappointment, heartache and depression. This team seems like they have been purposely created to cause people misery.
