Bondy: Gracious Knicks spare fans of typical early tease, head straight for dreadful

NY Daily News (Stefan Bondy) — As bad as the Knicks finished the last three seasons, they still had hope until around mid-January. Those teams followed the same formula – a hot start, which was better than expected, followed by a total collapse. In 2015-16, they began 22-22. In 2016-17: 16-13. Last season: 17-14. It was captivating...

Bondy: If Kevin Durant flees Warriors, Knicks can thank Draymond Green

Knicks look putrid in every way in loss to Magic that gives David Fizdale a harsh dose of reality
