If you’re a NY Knicks fan, then I must say I’m sorry. Dreams were crushed for New Yorkers last night as Lebron announced his move to the Miami Heat.
This announcement couldn’t have been any worse for NY fans. The current roster for the Knicks is laughable as the player of the future is Danilo Gallinari. Unfortunately, that won’t do it. Well, they did get Amare, but can he stay healthy? Probably not!
We all know it’s been a tough road for any Knicks fan in this past decade. I wish I can say it’s getting better, but it’s not! At least not in the next 5 years! For fans that don’t get to catch games very often due to the sky high prices at MSG, this will change. Tickets will be available for affordable prices, at least until they start competing.
So what do Knicks fans have to look forward? Well, besides for Amare eating up the cap space there are a few other things. We can look forward to the Heat coming to town and watching pure humiliation. I’d expect the Heat to beat the Knicks by about 40 points!
What else is there to look forward to as a Knicks fan? Nate Robinson will return to MSG for the 2nd time. There will also be some words from Marbury. I’d love to hear him voice his opinion and share what’s going through his head. It’s just a matter of time before he starts publicly ripping on the Knicks organization.
Bottom line, it’s going to be a very bumpy road for the Knicks in the near future. Many experts think this can be worse than the Travis Knight days. Charles Barkley once said that the Knicks organization will be cursed after they traded away Patrick Ewing. Everyone wanted Ewing to retire as a Knick, but they decided to toss him for Luc Longley and Glen Rice. That was a bust of a trade!
I’m sure the Knicks back-office is kicking themselves, but I’m not sure they realize how bad it really is! I’d imagine they still try to make things a bit better. Maybe they can look for some sign and trade deals, but its slim pickings with those players.
So it doesn’t look like it will get much better. They do not have a first round pick in 2012 and Houston has the right to trade picks with them for next year’s draft. As a Cavs fan, they have it pretty bad too although the Cavs will still be better than the Knicks even without Lebron.
