The New York Knicks are absolutely terrible right now, like historically bad.

With new head coach Derek Fisher and team president Phil Jackson in place the Knicks have made their worst start to a season in decades as they currently boast a pitiful 4-19 record.

Their nine game losing streak is so bad that it seems to be turning Knicks players against each other, with star player Carmelo Anthony threatening violence against teammates.

Physical Threats

According to reports from ESPN, the Knicks are in complete turmoil with the locker room in absolute disarray, which has culminated in Melo going mental.  From Chris Broussard's piece:

"The New York Knicks were en route to their fifth straight loss last week against Brooklyn when a frustrated Tim Hardaway Jr. screamed angrily, "Get the rebound!"

"Certain his second-year teammate was speaking to him, Carmelo Anthony approached Hardaway on the way down the court and used an expletive to ask Hardaway who in the world he thought he was talking to."

"Anthony, according to sources, used another expletive in telling Hardaway he was going to beat him up when they got into the locker room after the game."

So apparently Anthony and Hardaway really don't like each other which shocks absolutely no one. In basketball terms the two are kindred spirits, which is actually why they hate one another.

Both are angry at the other for not being committed on defense and taking way too many shots. You really couldn't make this up! Knicks fans, I'm so sorry that this is what your team have become.
