Guide on How to Build Around Kristaps Porzingis

The Knicks are going to be up and down all season. We can blame this on their lack of chemistry, health, and inability to guard the opposing team.

Is Joakim Noah worth $72 Million?

Would you sign Joakim Noah to a 4 year $72 million deal? — Swiss Cheese D (@NBASwissCheeseD) November 16, 2016 The Knicks are at an interesting phase in their franchise. They’re flirting with the desire for playoff contention, even though it’s clear a championship is not within their stratosphere (apologies to everyone who bet on them to win it all this summer).

The Knicks are losing, and it’s upsetting to watch, but it is also inevitable. The Knicks have ten expiring contracts this season, which alone explains the lack of cohesion.
