Who are the worst New York Knicks players of the 2010s?
The past decade has been challenging for New York Knicks fans.
While the team has missed the playoffs for seven consecutive seasons, the 2010s started off so promising. After a six-year playoff drought, 2010-11 saw the team reach the playoffs with the promise of more to come from Amar’e Stoudemire and Carmelo Anthony.
After dipping their toe in the postseason, New York won 54 games in 2012-13. They were a Roy Hibbert block away from perhaps advancing to the Eastern Conference Finals. The Knicks were back. The dark days were in the rearview mirror. Unfortunately, for the Knicks, things are in fact closer than they appear.
By 2013-14, everything fell apart. Phil Jackson took over as president of the team, and we know the rest.
Putting aside the team results, I started thinking about the players who were the most frustrating to watch over the past decade. What would a starting lineup look like of the worst Knicks players since 2010?
I should note: these aren’t necessarily the worst players in terms of talent or NBA accomplishment. This is a lineup of the players that cause universal despair among Knicks fans. Rooting for this team is a shared experience, through good and bad. Sit back and let’s have some fun with our troubles by coming up with the Worst Knicks of the 2010s starting lineup.
