|NBABrothers Thoughts & Theories||
The Knicks need more than a new uniform. They need leadership both on and off the court. All the way from the back office to the players on the court, we need a team that will live up to the excitement of the city that never sleeps. C’mon, we are New York!
I think that the new New Yorkers, the Brooklyn Nets, have a better understanding of what being in New York means. Over the summer, they took some serious action. They beefed up their squad with Joe Johnson and resigned Deron Williams and Gerald Wallace. I think they probably now have one of the best backcourts in the league outside of Kobe and Nash on the Lakers. During the same summer months, the Knicks lost Lin and Fields, their starting back court. They reunited with former Knicks Marcus Camby and Kurt Thomas while also bringing Jason Kidd onboard. All three veterans are nearing the end of their career so I am not sure how the Knicks management thinks this is a step in the right direction. We also acquired Ronnie Brewer who still has time to develop his skills, however we only signed the 27 year old to a 1 year contract. It leaves me wondering if the future New York fans will look to the Nets to represent their great city.
I am tired of waiting for good decisions to be made by the Knicks. And I am only in the sixth grade! I can’t even think of what Knicks long timers feel about this year’s team and the summer that wasn’t anything special…again. It’s really time for the Knicks to take action and follow the Nets lead of making good decisions. Not just changing uniforms. Please comment!
