I thought about this over the weekend during “Kids day at the Garden”…especially when the young Knick fans started chanting “We Want Nate”. Here is just a pretty revealing observation about how futile this decade has been for us. Do you realize that there are kids that are 9 yrs old (almost 10) that have never been alive to see the Knicks over .500 Do you realize they never saw warriors like Oakley, Starks, Ewing, Mason play? Do you realize they never witnessed a well coached and respected NY Team that wasn’t the butt of every joke? Do you realize they were there to experience the energy and thrill of winning a playoff game? Do you realize that names like Frazier, Reed, King, and Monroe do not mean anything to these kids?
This doesn’t lay good ground for the future. Not at all in the least bit.
Now dig this…
To get an idea on royally screwed the current Knicks management is, historically the in the Knicks 64 seasons years of existence, 28 seasons have been below .500. Over a quarter of those loosing years have been in this decade (29% to be exact) The last time the Knicks have had 9 consecutive yrs of losing seasons was during 1957-58. To get an idea how long ago that was, during that time Fidel Castro hadn’t even taken over yet.
Keep this is mind when you see outlandish remarks on the boards from Knick fans who seem to not have a clue.
