"But by the time Thomas left, the Knicks also had several young players on their roster that are still playing in the NBA: Zach Randolph, Trevor Ariza, Nate Robinson, David Lee, Channing Frye, Matt Barnes and Jamal Crawford. A pretty impressive list. That group didn't win in New York; young teams almost never do. But they weren't together long enough to see what they could become."
Aldridge, over on nba.com, had a blurb on Knicks rebuilding in NY in his 2013 recap article. I got to this point, when I suddenly felt like puking! Would you trade our roster now ... Today ... For the roster Isaiah Thomas left us in 2007? I think I would.
So, either IT wasn't as terrible as I remember, or Walsh and the current brain trust are even more pathetic than I originally thought.
