Are the Knicks a respectable organization now?
The New York Knicks have damaged their own reputation over the pst two decades under owner James Dolan. Now it looks like things could be changing and the perception of the franchise across the league is improving.
Yahoo Sports’ Chris Haynes reported on Friday that several high profile players from around the NBA are encouraged by the progress that the New York Knicks, Philadelphia 76ers, Los Angeles Clippers, Sacramento Kings, Brooklyn Nets, Denver Nuggets, Milwaukee Bucks and Toronto Raptors have all made.
Of course I’m here to talk about the Knicks and despite the fact that Dolan still owns the team, Dolan being more hands off over the past two years has really helped them a lot. It’s also a breathe of fresh air that they have guys like Steve Mills and Scott Perry in charge of the front office.
One that needs to change with the Knicks is them banning NY Daily News beat reporter Stefan Bondy because Dolan has a grudge against the newspaper.
If New York continues with the way they’ve been doing business, they will either build a playoff contender through the NBA Draft or end up landing some big-time free agents this summer.
The only way to know whether or not high profile players are taking the Knicks serious is for one of them to sign with the club as a free agent.
