First of all Wilkens can't change, I'm convinced of that and I'll tell you why. He has never been a defensive oriented coach by any means, and supposedly he has been preaching D this season, in training camp and practice. I haven't seen good consisent defense at all. The best thing the Knicks can do is fire him and do it soon, it's a new year, it's time for Isiah to coach this team.
The next thing is to make some key trades, no more nonsense, like waiting for certain players to improve a bit. Tim Thomas, Moochie Norris, Bruno Sundov, Allan Houston, Penny Hardaway, Vin Baker, all of them need to be gone, I don't know how exactly, but somehow.
