New Knicks or UKnicks?

Without leadership & pride there is no hope for the UKnicks!
After losing six in a row and nine of their last 10 -- often due to a lack of effort, desire and testicular fortitude -- perhaps the post-Carmelo-trade Knicks deserve to be called the “UKnicks!”

Since the trade, our UKnicks have surrendered 12 of their last 19 games and have become as difficult to watch as any Knicks team during the last 10 years. In fact, six of their last nine loses were to losing teams. Our uninspired UKnicks often gave up huge first-quarter leads while even scoring as little as nine points. Somehow the UKnicks find creative new ways to inspire even the most offensively challenged teams to play as though they were NBA powerhouses! These humiliating losses included crushing defeats by such formidable teams as the Cleveland Cavilers (14-57), Detroit Pistons (26-47), Milwaukee Bucks (29-43) and Charlotte Bobcats (30-42).

The free-falling Knicks, who are now sporting a losing record of 35-38, have dropped to seventh place in the NBA’s East. With nine regular-season games left, the UKnicks don’t know when their losing streak will end or even if they will make the playoffs. Even so, our UKnicks do not appear to be very concerned about their record or inability to win games – even against the NBA’s weakest sisters. Perhaps they don’t feel any urgency because they have a 4 1/2 game lead on ninth-place Bobcats, or maybe it is because nobody on the UKnicks has shown the balls to step up and declare that he won’t allow them to have a fatal collapse into their 10th straight losing season. The only hope for the new Knicks is that someone will demonstrate the leadership and pride needed to keep them from being UKnicks!
