The New York Knicks lost, as Seth Rosenthal put it, in perfect fashion last night to the Sacramento Kings. The Knicks built an early lead and looked as if they’d cruise to an easy win over the Kings’ lackluster defense.

However, a weak performance from the bench in the second quarter kept the Kings in it. Then, later on, when Iman Shumpert went down, forcing the Knicks to go with almost solely Tim Hardaway Jr. — who was having an off night — things started to turn badly. The Knicks’ offense stalled, as if stuck in snow, and Carmelo Anthony nor Amar’e Stoudemire nor anybody else could get the tires turning again.

‘Melo missed a deep, contested two for the win and the Knicks went into overtime where they lost.

Raymond Felton, however, didn’t seem too concerned about it, as cameras caught him yawning in the midst of the crowd booing the Knicks’ 18th home loss of the season.

Way to be, Ray!

    Stop writing Troll articles… you troll

    Here you go

    The New York Knicks are doomed folks… This article and season is a testament to this being a fact as I COMPLETELY agree with it. Raymond Felton has become an Extreme liability. In fact, if we keep this man at point he might be the Very reason that Melo leaves. Not only because he knows that this article is true, but because he watches it happen firsthand every game as we do. Part of me thinks Felton is the player that came out and said he knew Melo would leave, but that just can’t possibly be true.. Every game I watch Felton play with a lazy air surrounding him, and whether his shooting is on or not completely becomes irrelevant when he consistently is beat/abused towards the ends of games. Lets be honest, even when Felton’s shot is on he usually implodes mid-game. We all know that we see Melo’s frustration with Felton’s passes, messages between plays, and overall demeanor sometimes even when it comes to imbounding the ball.

    In my dreams, and now this is my dreams folks, Jr. Smith is our point guard. The man that no one in this league truly wants. He has reasonably great ball handles despite his reckless control of it, and he can penetrate and cut efficiently. Not only does he have these crucial attributes for point guards these days in being able to drive and create, but he also is a good finisher around the rim at 6’6. If only he could be what he was last year more consistently, but that’s the story of this guys career. Now look, I know this is stupid, but we surely cannot continue to watch this circus each game can we?? I have been a Knicks fan forever, and I cannot bare to see such assets handled this way.

    Woodson must go, and that trade for Faried unfortunately may need to go down. That, or we get an all star point guard asap. I’m talking Kyrie come play where you grew up, Westbrook we’ll give you everything for you, Rondo convince Ainge to stop being a jackass, kind of business talk. This is the type of bullshit, back-handed business the Knicks have always tried to capitalize on, and in saying that it is almost certain that is what they are doing right now! I don’t care at this point, but I swear if the line-up is the same and Woodson keeps calling time outs without holding players accountable or making line-up changes… I’m done. The man is honestly insane if he thinks he has this team under his power anymore. Everyone sees it, they talk about, but nothing happens.


    PS: That Bull’s rumor should be ashamed of themselves. Why in gods name would the Knick’s EVER, and I mean EVER take on Carlos Boozer’s contract. I don’t care what alteration of that trade is actually being discussed, if the Knick’s don’t get at least two draft picks for Melo they are actually insane.
