Knicks: Take 'Em or Trash 'Em?

The New York Knicks' season began with talk of an NBA championship. It ended in unmasked disappointment.

For the first time in four years, the Knicks failed to make the playoffs. Now, they face an offseason full of questions.

Does Phil Jackson want to re-sign Carmelo Anthony? More importantly, does Anthony want to re-sign with the Knicks?

What about Mike Woodson? If Woodson is fired, who will coach the team next season?

Beyond that, what can Jackson do to reshape a roster that won just 37 games?

The answers to those questions will arrive in the coming weeks and months. Before they do, we want to know what you think. Let us know which Knicks you'd take with you to 2014-15, and which you'd trash.

Then tell us why in the comments section.
