#2. We would be in the playoffs, but we would be like the Bulls, not making it far in the East
#3. The money for this offseason's free agency should put the Knicks in the top 6 of the playoffs with great acquisitions.
#4. They are reminders of Isiah Thomas' mockery of New York basketball
#5. Both are ball hogs who will not pass even when under pressure
#6. Both are doing well, only because they are on teams which can hide their defensive and offensive weaknesses
#7. Rebuilding is necessary so that the new decade will be prosperous with success and championship wins from the youth we get
Those are reasons why I personally am glad they are long gone from the Knicks franchise.
