... There's no way to deny it anymore. I've been a fan for many years and have suffered like the rest of the fanbase and It's like we can never catch a break. We can never develop a superstar from a draft pick. When we do get a "superstar", they're either damaged goods or high maintenance players who we have to overspend to get. We have to trade half the team for a superstar, but teams like the freakin' Lakers, who are wayyy over the cap, can swing deals for stars like Gasol and Nash by trading draft picks, dirty towels and Kwame Brown. It's hard to even re-sign our own players because other teams backload the contracts like the Raps did with Fields or the Rockets are trying to do with Lin. Veteren free agents don't want to come here and use us constantly as bargining leverage for other teams. Grant Hill has done it to us like 3 times already!!! And these vets would rather sit on the bench of another team than come here and fill a glaring hole... they just don't want to play for new york.
I'm so burned out right now with the NBA in general after this sham of a playoff, and with this salary cap hurting teams with high payrolls, it's gonna be another tough year to climb out of the hole.

Are the Knicks really better after signing an ancient point guard? It also sounds like they’re going to pay big money to keep Jeremy Lin. He’s a good player but will he be worth the salary? The Knicks are still a mess.
