This New York Knicks season has gotten out of hand. Twenty-two games in and fans are ready to move onto the next coaching chapter for this team.
Last night’s game against the Denver Nuggets has to be the tipping point. The Knicks got embarrassed on their home floor, again. At one point, the Knicks were down 43 points in the fourth quarter, ultimately losing 129-92.
In the last two games, the Knicks have lost by a combined 81 points. That’s pathetic.
After the game, head coach David Fizdale called the lose ‘sickening’. That was correct choice of words. Fizdale actually said something that Knicks fans can agree with.
The Garden faithful were booing after the third quarter and rightfully so. Fans were very vocal at the game and on Twitter about their head coach. Fans were wondering why they still watch. They were also wondering when Fizdale is going to be fired. After the game? First thing in the morning or mid-day? Possibilities are endless. But it’s coming.
One thing is true though. New York Knicks fans are the most ride or die fans in the world. In this sequence, the Knicks were down 29 and they were still cheering on their team. That takes dedication, especially to those fans that still go to all these games.
Knicks fans will cheer for anything too. At one point during the game, the fans were booing but then the cheerleaders starting to throw t-shirts and the fans starting cheering. This fan base is dying for a competitive team, and a free t-shirt. It doesn’t even have to be a winning team, just competitive.
Yes, the Knicks have been competitive in a majority of their games this season. They fought and battled but couldn’t find a way to sneak out wins in those close games. But, the last few games have been atrocious.
After the game, players mentioned how they aren’t going to give up and how they need to stick together. While that all sounds good, it’s obvious that Fizdale lost the locker room or the players had enough. Whatever it may be, it’s time for a coaching change for the Knicks before it gets worse.
