Smart offseason proves Knicks are rebuilding the right way
The Knicks aren’t back.
There is no talk of making the playoffs or of a big name acquired in the offseason. The possibility of trading for Jimmy Butler at the expense of future assets was met with a shrug more than excitement. It has been replaced by the acceptance of the early stages of a rebuilding plan.
“Every single year the Knicks, their fans — including my good friend Spike Lee —always think, ‘This is the year,’ ” TNT analyst and former Knicks killer Reggie Miller said.
“I will say that this is the one year they are headed in the right direction. … With [David] Fizdale and his leadership there is a glimmering of hope where you can turn the tide and play consistent basketball. That might not equate to a lot of wins this season, but it’ll be a better brand of basketball on the court.”
The models are not exact, but the patience plan has paid off for other fallen NBA heavyweights. The Celtics experienced some brief lows when the Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett era ended, but young talent — thanks in part to the assets received in trading away those aging stars — and the wizardry of Brad Stevens has made them a perennial contender once again.
The Lakers survived the end of the Kobe Bryant era and numerous draft misses before reaching a respectable 35 wins last season around the promising play of Brandon Ingram, Kyle Kuzma and Lonzo Ball. It was enough credibility to help lure LeBron James to Hollywood this offseason.
“When the Knicks hired Phil Jackson and he signed Joakim Noah and brought in Derrick Rose, I thought all those moves were great and it was the right way to go and I was dead wrong,” MSG Network play-by-play man Mike Breen said.
“This new regime is not going to go that route. They are going to build with draft picks and [develop] young players and then once you establish that foundation, you start searching for the elite free agents that can take you to the next step.”
The hiring of Fizdale by the Knicks’ new brain trust has been nearly universally applauded. The former Grizzlies coach has earned a reputation as a solid teacher who is beloved by his players — at least the ones not named Marc Gasol.
They have a star player, albeit one who is recovering from a torn ACL and not expected back till sometime in early 2019, in Kristaps Porzingis. There is hope in rookies Kevin Knox, Mitchell Robinson and Allonzo Trier who have all flashed potential in summer league and preseason.
“I just like how easy the game comes to him, he just looks so comfortable out there as a young kid,” MSG Network analyst Wally Szczerbiak said of Knox. “He has all the measurables: the size, the speed, the athleticism, the way he handles the ball. He’s the prototypical wing player in the NBA. Now he just has to do it on a nightly basis, make plays for his team. It’s not going to be easy, but if anybody can do it, it’s him with the confidence he shows on the court. “
Even while the league’s premier franchises have experienced downturns, the NBA has flourished thanks to an explosion of stars, which has led to massive TV contracts and an unprecedented influx of money.
“The league is at a point now where you want great basketball played by great players and I don’t think having certain markets anymore is as important as it used to be,” Breen said.
“That being said, there’s still something about the major cities, especially Boston, Los Angeles and New York. They are the glamour teams. Now, the Knicks have been down a long time, but whenever they are starting to make inroads the interest level, not just in New York but across the country, is huge. It’s the same thing with the Celtics and the Lakers.
“The league is in a good place even when those top cities are floundering, but it does take it to another level when those cities are competing at a high level.”
