The New York Knicks have struggled greatly this season and they are currently on a seven-game losing streak, so it is only natural for the players on the roster to begin showing and expressing their frustration.
After their latest loss, which came at the hands of the Los Angeles Clippers, the Knicks players decided to hold a team meeting in order to work things out.
“The easiest thing for us to do is just to crumble right now,” Carmelo Anthony said. “We are in a dark place but we have to get out of this. We just have to get out of it.”
The meeting took place in the visitors’ locker room of Staples Center following the Knicks’ 93-80 loss to the Los Angeles Clippers. The Knicks have the third-worst record in the league, and a loss Friday night in Denver would mean losing eight straight for the first time since February 2010.
“We talked. Everybody talked,” Anthony said. “The players had a meeting, the coaches — everybody had a meeting after the game. We had to talk. We’re trying to figure it out together. We have to put four quarters together. We got to do it for one another. Right now the game is not fun for nobody. We’re just not making it happen.”
The Knicks had high hopes entering the season, after last year’s campaign where they ended as the No. 2 team in the Eastern Conference.
Unfortunately for the Knicks, they can’t play a lick of defense and their offensive chemistry seems to be off. If they can’t get things fixed quickly, then they could turn into a ticking time bomb as the season rolls on.
