    19-33.... NYK are BY FAR the worst FT shooting team in NBA. I believe the only team under 70% as a team (and we are almost under 50%.

    It’s really amazing how bad DSJ and Randle are on offense. And to think this entire season was based on those 2 being top options. Ergo, why we are worse than last year.

    Knox going backward....

    Not much to like about this roster.

    DSJ is a kid that has a triple double and a 31 ppg on his resume, Randle coming off a 20 ppg year. Blows my mind they have regressed esp DSJ. Randle has his moments, Fizdale needs to go back to basics with him, chuck the point forward idea and limit his ball handling. Outlet passes off rebounds instead of him bringing it up..

    He was somewhat aggressive and he's slightly improving offensively but now his defense is slipping

    The @NYKnicks are 4-15 this season, tied for their worst 19-game start to a season in franchise history (done 3 times before). 3 of those 4 instances have occurred in the last 11 seasons (most recently in 2014-15).

    Burke said he didn’t want to speak for Porzingis, but gave enough hints that events during his former teammate’s four-minute meeting with Knicks president Steve Mills and general manager Scott Perry changed his view forever.

    I don’t think he was happy at the time,’’ Burke told The Post in the most revealing testimony yet about Porzingis’ alleged trade demand. “But I do think he wanted to stay. I think something happened at the meeting. I don’t know everything. Going into the meeting, KP had one type of understanding. After the meeting, there was a 180.

    “I know once Knicks management and KP had that meeting, KP was out of New York because of what was said. I think he went into the meeting hoping, like, ‘OK, what’s the plan for next year?’ And something went wrong in that meeting and it just blew up. And that was the end of Porzingis.”

    Burke shook his head over the reality that the keystone piece the Knicks received in the Dallas trade (other than cap space), Dennis Smith Jr., is currently coming off the bench.

    “I’ve seen that [Smith] hasn’t been playing a lot,’’ Burke said. “You look at it now. Well, what was the point of it? You traded away our Unicorn, Tim [Hardaway Jr.] …”

    “It was a new coaching staff in New York, trying to figure things out last year,’’ Burke said. “[In Philadelphia] it’s more established, the expectations are higher.

    “As far as a winning culture, there’s a definite one [on the 76ers]. In New York they were trying to build one as well, but we weren’t there yet. We didn’t have enough talent at the time. We definitely had the heart. We weren’t where we wanted to be talent-


    If Burke’s account is accurate, maybe the franchise’s future would look appetizingly different if the right things had been said at the four-minute meeting. Instead, it was another Black Friday at the Garden.


    “I’ll let [Porzingis] tell his own story,’’ Burke said. “I know he still has some stuff to get off his chest.’’

    4 minute meeting and he demands to be traded. Only thing that could have dramatically shifted Porzingis opinion of the franchise like that is he went into the meeting anticipating they would be offering him that max contract extension and they told him no. That other stuff about he wasn't happy with the direction of the team is BS.

    "If you go back through a majority of our close-game losses, I would say on average we probably shot 68 percent or less in the losses," Fizdale said. "Our margin for error, we just don't have that luxury to miss that many free throws in a close game."

    Fizdale was asked if the Knicks do any extra work on their free throws in practices.

    "Brother, I'm about to put sage in the room," he said. "We've done so much different stuff. In the gym, when we're shooting free throws and working on them, guys make their free throws. Our percentages are up (during practices). But for some reason, when we get into the games we're just not knocking them down at the level I know we're capable of. Again, we just don't have that margin for error to shoot under 70 percent in a game, especially in the close games."
