How to Fix the Knicks (A fan post)

Written by Stephen

Get rid of management. Hire new management. Has to be the absolute best available. Overpay like a mother fucker if you have to.

I’d hire Sam Hinkie.

Hire Ewing as coach. Three year contract at the bare minimum. Give him a year or two to work shit out. He’ll have a bad team. Long leash.

Make sure he gets the best associate coaches available. Overpay like a mother fucker if you have to. Knicks got money for days.

Nothing but absolute respect between the Knicks and Ewing from now on, even if he doesn’t work out as a HC.

Hinkie will know what to do with Carmelo. I say trade him, but Hinkie wouldn’t do it without fleecing someone. Carmelo wouldn’t say no to a trade at this point.

Acquire assets. First round picks, second round picks. Stockpile that shit. Bottom out like Philly did.

Top three draft picks for three years minimum. Don’t start making shit better till you got a mad amount of young talent on the roster.

Porzingis will have a solid young team to grow around him.

If you end up with talent that’s not gonna fit, trade that shit. That’s why you acquire assets.

No more bad contracts. No more dumb trades. Keep every pick.

Knicks don’t got to worry about ticket sales. Fans will buy tickets regardless. People will jizz over whatever picks they get.

If the Knicks got Ben Simmons, you guys would be so happy. That’s why Jay’s a fucking retard.

Hinkie is great at explaining shit. Just make sure he does so. I’m sure he knows that’s where he fucked up in Philly.

Goal is to be the worst team in the Eastern Conference every single year.

Build a culture. All the young players should know they’re building towards something great.

Losing takes a toll, but they’ll have all the opportunity in the world. They get to go out there every night and make mistakes. Just make sure they got the best guidance.

Sign some veterans to help with that culture shit.

Extremely important to hire the best training staff available. You want the best in the industry. Spare no expense. Everything has to be the absolute best. Poach the best staff from other teams.

There’s no reason for Dolan to spare a single fucking dime.

New York media might fuck shit up like the retards they are, but it’s worth a shot. Also, I’m not sure if Ewing is willing to tank. He’s from a different generation.

Ewing wouldn’t have to throw games. Just don’t put him in a position to win. Goal for Ewing and the players should be to win every game.

Don’t give them a chance, though. They have to be the worst. Second last and last might be the difference between Ben Simmons and Brandon Ingram.

I don’t care what you think. It’s always better to have first choice.

Optimism and the Knicks

Optimism, defined as:

A tendency to expect the best possible outcome or dwell on the most hopeful aspects of a situation”

Of course this word has strayed from the dictionary of Knicks fans in recent years, but you can’t deny the last three years have offered more cause for optimism than any other in the post-Ewing era. I suppose to a certain extent then we should feel lucky that what was a consistently sinking ship of a team year upon year under the direction of Isiah Thomas has now turned into what is expected of a New York franchise; big players, big results, and most importantly of all, big ambitions. Furthermore, you’d be forgiven for thinking that the last two years of the Melo trade have been disappointing given the reasonably swift post-season exits, because when it’s all said and done, there has been improvement. In 2011-12 the Knicks achieved a .545 regular season win percentage, and in 2012-13 a .659 win percentage; the improvement is clear to see, losing in five games to the current NBA champions Miami Heat is hardly an embarrassment, and even losing to the Pacers in the conference semi’s is understandable given Roy Hibbert’s inexplicably high level of play against a banged up Tyson Chandler and a makeshift center in Kenyon Martin.

he point I am trying to make, is that this year, more than any other year, we have reason to be optimistic about the Knicks. Continue reading
