We have been viewed as a joke I don't think we are viewed as a joke anymore. The Knicks don't have to overpay guys just to get people to come. Players aren't saying to the Knicks hey I will sign with the some other team for 6 million unless you give me 20.
They have over payed people sure so have every other team in this league has deals where they payed more then they should for a player
I think we got insurance on his Knees not full coverage but I think they have some but maybe I am wrong.
We are appealing franchise even in the 2000's we were linked to all stars like we are now with Melo. How many times has that happened with the Lions?
