I became a Knick fan following Melo from Denver. I stayed after he went to Houston. Hasn’t been easy but I’m glad they are again becoming respectable. I don’t have the nostalgic memories of Oakley so I wasn’t too tied to the incident at MSG. To me I wasn’t too frustrated as other Knicks fans.

You’re either a fan or not. People denouncing or jumping the bandwagon were never fans to begin with.

ESPN is trash. You have a guy who says he's not a Knick fan hosting a Knick fan roundtable so you can LOL the team. If you don't like us why do you spend so much time trying to get our attention. Big thumbs down on this garbage.

Is Torre delusional or simply doing shtick like Max Kellerman? Either there are two--and ONLY two--NBA observers in the country who do NOT see that the K's have turned things around from the top down, or they're both so wedded to the ESPN business model of fake beef that they do devil's advocate out of instinct. It must be the latter because NO ONE'S that clueless. Riddle me this, Batman: Who do you take--J. Randle or Krispy Portzebie? (MAD Magazine reference alert) Who do you take--21 year-old I. Quickley and his rookie contract or 28 year-old T. Hardaway and his bloated one? RJ Barrett raised his FT% by 14 points since last season--will he not use this NEXT off-season to make himself a credible outside shooter and does that not then make him an instant all-star if combined with his 7 reb and 3.5 assists? How many 4th offensive option centers do you take over Mitchell Robinson? Will Obi Toppin not emerge from out of J. Randle's shadow in 18 months once the latter is being overwhelmed with $40m/year offers from other teams to pick up where he left off? Is Tom Thibideau's 11th all-time winning% imaginary? No, Torre and Kellerman are not monkeys--they're just PRETENDING to be. Nice work if you can get it.

@Robby Oak That's a bandwagon mentality. Real fans would never abandon their team. Any knicks fan that left the knicks because "the Knicks left them" were never Knicks fans to begin with.
Robby Oak
Robby Oak Acum 9 Zile
I guess it depends on your definition of fan. If it's the insane blind fanatic definition then sure, anyone who left that would certainly not ever go back. But if its the I actively root for and follow this team definition? No man, you don't get to exclude those ppl from that, and the team wants those ppl back. There's a ton of Knicks fans that would say they didn't leave the Knicks, the Knicks left them.

This is the 1st time NYK is even in contention for a spot since the last time they made the playoffs at all in 2013. What happened then? They got swept. But that’s neither here nor there. For 35-40 years, being a Knicks fan, regardless of how many playoff games they do or don’t win, has been nothing but a pipe dream because it’s been that long since the last time they did anything serious. And although they have a young core that’s on the rise it’ll probably be another few years before the effects of that core become positive ones. If they become positive ones, that is. If they don’t just do like every other young, talented New York Knick and choose to play for an actual contending team. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. Oh, the Knicks.
MrDayday4641 Acum 9 Zile
They did not get swept in 2013. They went to game six (nearly game seven) in the second round with the Pacers (who pushed Miami to seven). They also won a playoff game in 11-12 (they drew Miami in the opening round). They got swept in 10-11, but those were the very young Gallo, not quite prime David Lee, and near retirment T-Mac days.

Warning: did not realize I was still angry about the Knicks... Putting up w that joke of a sports franchise and calling it loyalty is what enabled them to continue to SUCK for so long. Its YOUR FAULT. Sell out the games, buy the merch, watch on tv for ratings for Dolan to sell advertising- winning not required. Competitive success not required. Good product not required. Seriously? The girl is telling you she doesn't love you but you keep calling, hoping. You know when the girl wants you back? When you don't need her anymore, when your attention is elsewhere even if u aren't dating anyone. The formula has been abundantly clear and proven across the sports: get right GM to run the show who gets the right coach, make smart personnel and contract moves. Yankees do it. Mets trying. Nets doing. Giants trying to get back to it. Islanders omg ISLANDERS doing. And now the JETS? C'mon now. /sigh. I'm not coming back until there's something to root for, and I need more than a Jeremy Linn ARE YOU NOT LINTERTAINED! feel good story. Man, I thought that's where it was going to turn. And for those who say since I left I'm not allowed to be a fan, FINE. I'll just be a follower.

LeBron hits the side of the backboard but Twitter goes quiet because all of LakerNation looks shook that they can't beat the Heat without 2 starters but the Clippers did without 4 starters.. Must only crucify Paul George.
Paul George did that in a crucial game in the playoffs that capped a huge collapse by a championship contending team. What part are you missing?
