The New York Knicks are currently on a six-game losing streak and most of the blame is being put on the team’s star players. The team is playing horrendous basketball right now and it looks like they will be in a heated battle for the eighth seed in the Eastern Conference.
It seemed as though the Knicks could challenge some of the upper echelon teams in the conference, but now there is a possibility that the Knicks do not even make the post-season. The coaching staff is doing whatever it can to improve the team, but at the end of the day, it is the players who are out on the court battling.
“The joking around has to stop at some point,” Amar’e Stoudemire said. “We got to take this game very serious, especially in a time where now we’re in the 8th seed and we’re not playing well. So the time is now.”
This Knicks team is not living up to expectations and something needs to change in the locker-room or else this team will be back in the lottery.
