Maybe The Knicks Can Succeed in March

At this rate, the New York Knicks might be able to knock off Iona to win the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference.

Today, the team continued its quest to form the best backcourt in college basketball by acquiring Steve Francis from Orlando for Penny Hardaway and Trevor Ariza.

Right now, the Knicks clearly resemble a mid-major college team that has talented guards who can shoot and run but they are incapable of recruiting big men. They are almost like the Gonzaga teams from few years ago.

It’s unbelievable. I understand that Larry Brown was the one who wanted Francis but Isiah Thomas reminds me of the fantasy league GM who clearly has no idea what he’s doing. Thomas wants to build a team of less-talented clones of himself and still hasn’t grasped the concept of the salary cap.

It’s not even like the backcourt is exciting now. Stephon Marbury is an immensely gifted player but he’s a poor man’s version of Allen Iverson. He needs to have a true point guard to make him a better player. Francis is not that player. He’s just a poor man’s version of Marbury. We’re talking about a pretty poor man here.

They would have been better off getting a point guard from the developmental league. Why not sign former New York City star Andre Barrett? I guess cost effective part-time solutions are a bad idea.

By Thursday afternoon, they might even get worse. Rumors are that they are trying to trade for Darius Miles in an effort to have the least educated team in the league as well as the least talented.

    I don’t know. I think the entire franchise is pretty much cursed. No one is capable of rescuing it at all.

    You’ll have that when your team nickname is underpants.

    Heh…

    Wanna bet the vagabond Larry Brown is having nightmares every night, about leaving the Pistons (best record in the NBA) for the Knicks (second-worst record in the NBA)?
