Although the New York Knicks of the National Basketball Association had a mediocre roster coming into the 2014-2015 season, no one could have anticipated just how badly the Knicks would be playing as they have closed out the midpoint of their season. There was high speculation from fans like Mark Ahn on Twitter as the season was beginning that the Philadelphia Seventy-Sixers may be in fact the worst team to ever play basketball in the NBA; however, they have already posted eight wins for the season. Although their season is poor at best, they have surpassed their expectations on the season.
The New York Knicks, on the other hand, have been so pathetically bad this season that they sit with a mere five losses, while having a staggering thirty-six losses. There has been a ton of media controversy surrounding the team’s massive amount of losses this season, but the Knicks players and rookie head coach Derek Fisher have not been able to produce an answer. Yes, they have had injuries to Carmelo Anthony as well as some other key players for the Knicks, but the horrid play that they have brought to the court on a nightly basis is simply inexcusable.
A lot of people thought that they would make a turnaround somewhat when they made the trade with the Cavaliers and the Oklahoma City Thunder several weeks ago, but nothing has changed in New York and doesn’t appear to be changing anytime soon.
