I think it's disingenuous to argue that the Knicks haven't drafted a player who went on to play in the All-Star game in 20 years, not give them credit for players like Houston or Sprewell, and THEN throw the Wizards in along with them.

Lest you forget, the Wizards drafted Richard Hamilton out of UConn in 1999, then traded him to the Pistons in the deal to get Jerry Stackhouse. Gee, I wonder if Rip's made any All-Star teams? And, if your argument is for players who made the All-Star team while WITH that team, you still can't count the Wizards because they had Caron Butler make it this year.

I'm not a Wizards fan by any means, but let's try to stick to accurate writing, shall we?

Andrew: The story clearly says they haven't DRAFTED an all-star player. Butler was not drafted by the Wizards and Wallace wasn't an all-star when he was with the Wizards. Houston and Sprewell were not drafted by the Knicks.

Are the Knicks still a sports franchise?

Presents its premise (with specificity) and develops a theme that (unfortunately) proves how inept,& chaotic the Knicks are.
Is it any wonder that they are pereneal losers. Lack of judgement, no consistent philospy or organization, poor management, & no discipline guarantee mediocrity.

I'm a die hard Knicks fan. I'm also disgusted by the way the past what is it 6 seasons? have gone. I'm sick of the losing and I am almost embarrassed to be a Knicks fan. But I can't help it, there my team. Knicks need to get Colangelo as GM and need to get rid of Thomas, and make this once proud franchise become something to have pride in once again.

This is the most depressing article I have ever read that doesn't involve Gaza. These guys make the Jets look like geniuses!
