I think it's best if we stop creating new threads every season. This could serve as the official Knicks thread until it reaches the maximum posts (hence, we make a new one).
Things to look forward to for the 2014-2015 Season:
1.) Phil Jackson
For the first time since God knows when, James Dolan will be hands off on basketball operations. Phil Jackson is in charge, and this could mean great things for the franchise. Gone are the days where we are being butt-f*cked in trades. We're not going to be bending backwards over players and agent demands anymore!
2.) Triangle Offense
One of the best offenses ever created is the TRIANGLE offense. It's a very simple offensive scheme that has delivered quite a few championships to Chicago and Los Angeles. With Phil Jackson in the mix, it's as clear as day that the Knicks will be running the Triangle regardless of who coaches. If it's someone under Phil's tree, then we're going Triangle all the way. If it's someone outside; we can still expect that coach to implement some triangle - which is a good thing.
3.) Carmelo Anthony
Obviously, this is the guy we all want to see! The man who breathes and lives New York City. One of the most prolific scorers in NBA History... New York's own, Carmelo Anthony!
This off-season is all about making Melo stay. Whatever it takes, resign Carmelo Anthony. Phil's a smart guy, he knows Melo is special, so there's no way he lets Melo slip away from his hands. 2016 is far away, and although Phil is eyeing Durant, we still need Carmelo right now, for the next 2 years at least since Durant isn't even a guarantee.
Keep Melo, and build around him.
4.) New Roster!
Pretty much, yeah. Felton won't be here, half of the guys won't probably be here in opening day. We'll see a new set of role players surrounding Melo this year. Hopefully Phil can pull off some trades, but the main objective should be to field a competitive team this year and go all out in the 2015 Free Agency.
For now, let's wait and see how the NBA Draft unfolds. Our pick is owned by Denver...
Phil Jackson is rumored to buy a couple of 2nd round picks tho.
LET'S GO KNICKS!
