Knicks' Midseason Report Card
They lost their 27th game of the season Wednesday. Last season, they lost 28 games total.
“That’s not happening,” Carmelo Anthony said.
Not after the disastrous half of the season the Knicks have been through.
New York came into the year talking about winning a title. Now, they’re on pace to win just 30 games, making them one of the biggest disappointments in the NBA.
Below, we offer our first-half grades for the team. We also want to know how you’d grade this team, so feel free to weigh in with your marks and remarks below.
Mills inherited this roster, so it’s hard to place much blame at his feet for the way things have shaken out so far. But it’s on the Knicks’ president/GM to make the necessary moves either to right the ship or ensure Anthony re-signs as a free agent. Or both. If that means making a coaching change or shaking up the roster through a trade, Mills has to make the call.
The owner deserves credit for opening his wallet to fund the second-highest payroll in the league. But the roster he’s paying for doesn’t fit. Was it Dolan who forced the deal for Bargnani? If so, that was a misguided move. Also, the Dolan votes of confidence for Woodson clearly haven’t produced the desired result. Firing Glen Grunwald seems like the right move at this point, but the original timing of the whole thing wasn’t right.
Question: What grades do you think the Knicks deserve?
