As the holiday experience approaches as the month of December rolls on, the Eastern Conference continues to fluctuate.
Specifically with the New York Knicks who seem to losing in every facet of what it means to be a franchise.
They’ve lost games in a division that many thought they would win, injuries have decimated their roster, and the coaching staff has been questionable throughout.
And it may be the coaching staff that pays the price, that’s right; coach Mike Woodson is yet again, on the hot seat.
This comes after a heartbreaking loss to the Washington Wizards in which the Knicks did not foul Wizards shooting guard Bradley Beal and a timeout that was not called following Beal’s game-winning shot.
On top of all this, Knicks president & GM James Dolan has apparently stalled possible trade talks with the Toronto Raptors for Point Guard Kyle Lowry.
The point guard position has been extremely weak as of late with poor play from Raymond Felton and the recent injury to Pablo Prigioni.
Not to mention that their key center Tyson Chandler is still out with an injury of his own. While the team has major issues to deal with an address now, the future is also out of focus at the moment.
All-Star small forward Carmelo Anthony can choose to leave the Knicks this summer, which seems likely, or he can return on his player option for one year.
One interesting proposition that may be an option to help Anthony return is a coaching selection made by Anthony if the Knicks choose to fire Woodson. This move would most likely be very similar to what happened in Los Angeles with the Clippers last offseason which allowed All-Star Chris Paul to come back on his own terms.
All in all, the New York Knicks do not have too many good things going for them and it will up to the management to decide what happens to this rapidly sinking ship.
