Open Letter To The New York Knicks


Dear Knicks,

Let me get this out of the way right off the jump–you guys are embarrassing yourselves, the Knicks, and New York. There is no way in  hell you guys should be 4-20. We didn’t expect you to be the top of the Eastern Conference, but when Melo signed an extension in the offseason we expected .500 basketball at the bare minimum. That has clearly not been the case. Every game makes me want to fix myself a glass sandwich. Everyone in this organization should exiled to Long Island until they’re .500–you don’t deserve to live in NYC.

Today the New York Post reported that you would consider waiving your no-trade clause Melo. You and your agent have denied that report. I hope so my dude. You are easily a top five scorer in this league there is no debate in that, but in defense and leadership you the bottom of the barrel. At first I thought it was your putrid supporting cast, but then I saw this:

Does that look like f*cking defense to you? Is that what $124 million gets you? I expect that from the old man stuck in Amar’e Stoudemire’s body, but not you. Now you might be hurting and if you are then I have a suggestion for you. Get surgery, sit this season out and get that knee to full health. Let this team bottom out and get rid of the clown contracts of Stoudemire, Andrea Bargnani and Lord willin’, J.R. Smith. Land a top-five pick in the draft and pray that Jahlil Okafor or Karl Towns fall into your lap.

Which brings me to you Coach Fisher. You’ve been dealt a shitty hand, but for God’s sake show some emotion fam. Why you always look like you’re afraid to say something? You got to start checking these fools. Just because Phil Jackson brought you in doesn’t mean he can’t take you out. Your rotations are worse than Hot 97’s. There’s no rhyme or reason to it at all.

The season is over, give Hardaway and Shumpert heavier minutes and see if they’re worth keeping around. Same goes for Cleanthony Early when he returns. Use this year to learn how to coach and get ready for the real deal next year once Phil has cap room to do something.

Which brings me to my final person, the Zen Master. This ain’t Chicago. This ain’t LA. Michael Jordan, Scottie Pippen, or Shaq aren’t walking through that door. But Kobe Bryant can. If this team does choose to bottom out and land a top five pick, landing a center, use that extra money for Rondo and the remainder to bring the Mamba to Gotham. Clearly he’s fed up with his sorry sack of sh*t teammates too:

Meditate on it Phil. Rondo, Melo, Kobe and either Karl Towns or Jahlil Okafor. You seem to be the only competent person at MSG so I still have faith this can get fixed next year. Just get it done. And again ship J.R. Smith back to China, Newark or any other city that will have him.

Not So Sincerely,

Knicks Fans
