Regular Season: 37-45

Next Up: NBA Draft (June 26)

…so apparently James Dolan and Phil Jackson are already having disagreements. The offseason hasn’t even started yet for most teams in the league.

The coaches and players on this team had an extremely difficult 2013-14 season, and blame should not be put on one individual. But the time has come for change throughout the franchise as we start the journey to assess and build this team for next season and beyond.”

Anonymous: How can Phil Jackson's triangle offence alter the line up?

I think it’s more likely that the Knicks will change their roster before they implement the triangle, but if it stays as it is now they may move Hardaway (or Smith) and Stoudemire into the starting five to run it with Melo.

If Melo leaves this summer, we should cross our fingers that he’ll choose Houston.

Chicago and LA have enough cap space to sign him outright, but Houston is over the cap and will have to complete a sign-and-trade to get him. It’s a small consolation, but the Knicks could get back any combination of Omer Asik, Jeremy Lin, Chandler Parsons and Terrence Jones in return.

Obviously the best-case scenario is if he stays, but there’s a good chance he won’t, and this is the best we can hope for if that’s the case.
