Dear James Dolan and the New York Knicks,
I address this letter to you because you are the reason that this franchise has not won a playoff series since 2013 and has not been to the conference finals since 2000! For a team that is in the “greatest city on earth” you really don’t know how to show any appreciation for it.
This was probably the easiest trade deadline for you but you wasted it, again. I’m not even going to get into the terrible off-season moves that were made (Noah, Rose,Melo) but rather speak to this years trade deadline. First you have the opportunity to with the Rose situation and trade him for ANYTHING. Next you have Carmelo anything wasting away his career after giving him a TERRIBLE extension. You have the opportunity to build around one of the brightest young stars in the league, Godzingus, and instead of doing so you hold on to Melo and continue to frustrate a loyal fan base. That is a fan base that you spit in the face of when you disrespected Charles Oakley!
Playing in the greatest arena in the world you have somehow tarnished the legacy of the Knicks legends while also putting out one of the worst products on the court in the league.
I beg you, this off season trade Melo to ANYONE. Load up on draft picks and build around Porzingus, because you’re not going to be able to luck into that draft pick every time.
An annoyed Knicks fan
