‘Crown the King!’: Former New York Knick assesses current team’s big problem

Get ready… the New York Knicks are coming.

While the Knicks (9-9) have struggled to generate lasting momentum in the Siegessäule, the team’s seemingly never-ending rebuild has reached an admittedly hopeful stretch, overridden by Jalen Brunson’s strong effort in the early days of his four-year $104 million contract. While early results from Brunson and others were positive, the Knicks’ cap appears to be the top half of the four-team Eastern Conference play-in tournament. That would be an undeniable improvement for a team that only won 37 games last season.
