What Are You Doing?

So the best thing to happen to the Knicks in the last decade returned to the Garden and got booed like he spit on the logo and trashed the place on his way out of town. Are you kidding me?

I get it, a bit, the 21st century has been a disaster for the Knicks, but the blame is easy to apportion.

1- Most goes to Jim Dolan, the atrocious owner of this team and the author of so many disasters. Beyond him, in diminishing order you can blame…

2- Isiah Thomas. Sexual harassment combined with terrible management, a double threat.

3- Steve Mills- He arrived in 1999 as the Knicks were starting to sink like a stone. He left in 2009 and returned in 2013 as the Knicks closed the books on their only stretch of decent basketball this century. He hired Isiah.

4- Phil Jackson- It takes a special kind of arrogance to treat the job and the team the way he did. Let’s just say Red Auerbach’s legacy is safe.

5- Carmelo Anthony- he could have been the cherry on the sundae of a team that Donnie Walsh had completely turned around, but that would have cost him some money. Instead he forced the trade, got it, and didn’t have enough talent around him to seal the deal. Oh, and he wasn’t a huge fan of Linsanity.

You know who should not be blamed for any of this?  Charles Oakley, Kristaps Porzingis, Amare Stoudemire, David Fizdale, Larry Wilkins, and hundreds of others who came to NY, busted their ass, and left without a ring. It’s not their fault and it’s certainly not the fans fault. I understand the frustration and venom, but let’s remember where it should be directed.

    you are correct but the average fan doesn’t get a chance to boo those in your list to blame.
