Before last night's game, Larry Brown said he hoped that every position would be up for grabs in the next Knicks training camp.
A few hours later, the Knicks proved they are pretty much unredeemable at every spot.
Scoring a season-low 31 points in the first half while being booed off the court, they were routed by Memphis, 91-75, during a mistake-plagued train wreck. The Knickerbotchers committed 13 turnovers in the first half, which led to 19 Memphis points. For the first time this season, the Knicks are 30 games below .500 (19-49), and they'll play 14 more games before escaping this bottomless pit.
"We've been rock bottom for a long time," Brown conceded, although he added that he doesn't see guys giving up. Malik Rose, who played with a sprained right ankle, was one of many hapless defenders against Memphis power forward Pau Gasol, who effortlessly poured in 36 points.
