New York Knicks History
The New York Knicks had a very disappointing season last year as they finished last in the Eastern Conference standings with the record 23-59, the league’s second worst record behind the Portland Trail Blazers who finished 21-61.
For a historic team as the New York Knicks, expectations are high every year. Because of several problems dealing with the front office, coach and players, the New York Knicks were never able to bring themselves together. Player and coach relations usually filled the headlines as Stephon Marbury, or “STARbury,” and Head Coach Larry Brown clashed day after day it seemed because the two were never on the same page. General Manager Isaiah Thomas also got in the quarrel as he and Brown feuded constantly too.
The situation didn’t get any better. Players didn’t play up to potential as Eddy Curry remained in old habits with his lazy play. Marbury was hurting team chemistry. Channing Frye, although did well as a rookie, still has much to learn. There was no solid presence down low. Injuries were continuously plaguing the team. The problems piled up as the season progressed.
Wanting to add something, anything, to a team with nothing going for them, the New York Knicks made another mistake as they traded Anfernee Hardaway and Trevor Ariza for Steve Francis. The arrival of Francis didn’t improve the situation as the team continued to lose every night. Many speculated why Isaiah Thomas made a trade for another point guard whose main repertoire is creating their own offense.
Once the season ended for the New York Knicks, rumors and speculation spread as the future of Head Coach Larry Brown was in jeopardy. Brown continued to workout players though for the draft even when he called himself, "a dead man walking." The situation worsened as he and general manager Isiah Thomas never exchanged words.
Brown was finally fired on June 22 making him the fifth coach for the New York Knicks in three years. His contract is still in issue as his agent said to reporters that he would not accept a buyout. $40 million is still owed to him and his contract stipulates Commissioner David Stern has the final call on all contract issues.
It is possible Brown will still be coaching next season as rumors have Michael Jordan, one of the new owners of the Charlotte Bobcats, highly interested in hiring his longtime friend, who is also a huge fan of the University of North Carolina. Brown also has family in Charlotte.
