From Worst to First: New York Knicks


There has been so much buzz and too little punch for the New York Knicks over the last decade. It many ways, it disproves the theory that as long as you have a superstar, you can still win a lot of games in the NBA. Despite Carmelo Anthony's loyalty to the storied organization, things only seem to be getting worse. With bloated salary and little talent, where can the Knicks even begin? Here are three moves that every Knicks owner can make in NBA 2K15 to return Spike Lee's favorite squad into powerhouse form:

1. Find a Partner in Crime: Do what the Knicks have failed to the past few seasons and find Carmelo a great complimentary player to have at his side. Some names that will be popping up in free agency next summer: Paul Millsap, Rajon Rando, Greg Monroe and LaMarcus Aldridge.

2. Cut, Cut, Cut: A lot of guys on the Knicks are not tradable (we are looking at you, Amar'e) and it's up to you to make sure they are out of a job. Do whatever you can to free up some cash to follow up on the above advice. Another possibility is to swap bad contracts with another team in hopes that a change of scenery spurs something.

3. Find Early's Game: Cleanthony Early was regarded as one of the most underrated draft picks of 2014. Do everything you can to make sure that he becomes a consistent piece of the machine, because the Knicks could use the youth and low-cost.

they're already pretty decent to start off with. I'm about half way through the season with the Knicks, sitting about 10 games above .500. Melo has carried me, but Calderon, Shumpert, and Stoudemire have been solid in support.

We are built as a video game team... Offensive team with no defense. I had a very good 1st season then started to upgrade the 1 & 5 positions through draft where I suckered in philly for Noel and swapped picks(drafted PG) and within 3 seasons I was raising banners at MSG (Knicks Arena). Easy peazy lemon squeezy!! Go Knicks.

I imagine it's not too difficult to turn them around. I am surprised they've sucked so bad this season. I would say the keys are getting rid of STAT (although he seems to be good again) and developing Early/Shump.

As a Huge Knicks fan I'm planning rebuilding.....here's my goals:

1) Trade Melo/Stat and in some way get Kevin Durant before 2016 FA period....then build a team around KD
2) Of the current starters I like Tim Hardway Jr....keep him
3) Try to bring another big player like John Wall...I'll have to trade picks and some solid players like Calderon and Shumpert
4) Avoid to get another overpaid FA.....target younger player to finish roster

If I could accomplish 1,2,3,4 I could get a starting five like :

G J. Wall
G T. Hardaway Jr
C S. Dalambert
F K.Durant
F C. Early

Still Knicks is a very hard puzzle to solve ^__^

I would develop Cole Aldrich because he's way better than Dalembert
