It's hard not to feel bad for Knick fans at this point, can it get any worse. The coach has no control over the lockeroom and is not respected by the players whatsoever. The President of the team is continually making poor roster decisions while trying to implement a prehistoric offense. The superstar player on the team is aging, worth basically nothing on the market, and has a terrible relationship with Phil Jackson. Now, Kristaps Porzingis, the future of the franchise is beginning to hate the franchise himself. Can you blame him?
How is a player supposed to buy into an organization when they clearly show time and time again that dysfunction and chaos plague this franchise. From James Dolan the incompetent owner who is trying to spite his own fans to Phil Jackson who couldn't be doing a worse job, how could he possibly believe in this organization. He's playing for a bunch of selfish assholes. Phil won't leave the triangle offense in the grave where it belongs and then he wonders why he can't get any mark key free agents to come play in New York. If Phil can't get players to come to New York, like he was hired to do, he's good for absolutely nothing.
Kristaps Porzingis is the only glimmer of hope for this pathetic tire fire you call a professional sports franchise, so keeping him happy should be a top priority. If in his sophomore season he's already skipping meetings and saying he's upset with the organization that's usually a recipe for disaster. I don't know what Phil Jackson is doing, maybe he's intentionally trying to sabotage the Knicks because that's about the only thing that makes sense. If he somehow fucks up Kristaps Porzingis's future with this franchise he'll officially be the worst executive of all time.
