The Knick will be allright with Zeke, its still early in the season. The Knick will be a playoff team.

it started with Marbury setting the tone by bailing when he was told he wouldn't start... in these days of salary caps and guranteed money you can't just cut a player and they (the players) know it.... look how many teams tolerate Artest and rodman before him... The loser is going to be future players as teams will be reluctant to give out long term guranteed money to players that have any issues in their background... Isiah thought he could change and motivate Marbury to play winning style Basketball. He was wrong and it will probably cost him his job...

The Knicks have plenty of leaders from Doaln to Isiah to Marbury. The problem is these clowns are leading them down the patch of mediocrity and unaccountability.
How can a team be expected to take any reposibility when the owner is a fraud, the head coach was found guilty of harassment, and their best palyer is in th etruck with the interns? They all just want to get paid with as little effort as possible.

Maybe it's time to root for the Nets. They're under-performing but can still whip the Knicks even with VC out. Another season shaping up to be worse than LB's.

This once proud franchise is the joke of the league both on and off the court. The city game is crap and no ones gives a damn about it as long as the money is coming in.

Charles Oakley? A reminder of a time when I could actually watch the Knicks. But it sounds like Charles has been watching "My Name is Earl" too much. How many times did he mention karma?

I was going to do that, but now, the Nets don't appear to be that great either.

just reading about the Oak brings back memories of opposing gurads fearful of driving the lane as they would physically pay. Guys like Larry J playing with severe back pain.

You are right-there is comparisoan to the former Knicks and this team. Get rid of Starbury, take a buyout if you have to. I'm sure the league will look the other way to try and get a respectable franchise back.
