The Knicks have had a lackluster start to the season. They currently sit 2-4, and that places them in last in the Eastern Conference. There have been reports that state that management and ownership are not happy with this team, and things are getting pretty heated in New York. Carmelo Anthony can opt out of his deal at the end of the season, and his free agency has been a hot topic. Although he says he wants to retire as a Knick, he still could leave if things go wrong. Anthony spoke to the media on Sunday after a 30 point loss to the Spurs, and he knows the pressure’s on:

With Tyson Chandler out, the Knicks will be relying on Andrea Bargnani and Amar’e Stoudmire to defend the paint. That is about the worst 2 guys you can ask for. The Knicks didn’t get better like the rest of the East did in the off-season, so there struggles come as no surprise to me. It’s still early, so ruling them out of the playoffs would be a serious mistake. The early trends don’t rule in favor of New York, though.

I hate to break it to Carmelo, but it’s been 4 decades since the Knicks won a title. I don’t think that shows a lot of impatience.
