R.I.P. Anthony Mason

New York Knicks

Published: Updated:
Things have not gone as planned in 2014-15 for the New York Knicks, as the team struggled out of the gate in adjusting to their new offensive system. Last year the Knicks missed the playoffs by just a single game, and fans were hopeful that an eventful offseason would boost them into the postseason in 2015. That looks like quite the long shot now, though, as the Knicks have had trouble netting victories on the court this season. The Knicks made a big splash in the offseason by luring famed head coach Phil Jackson out of retirement to build the team from the front office. Jackson implemented former player Derek Fisher as the new head coach of the team and re-signed star forward Carmelo Anthony to a long-term contract. These all looked to be great moves for the Knicks, and they likely were, but little else has gone right for the team in 2014-15. Some players struggled to adapt to Fisher's triangle offense early in the season, which resulted in some poor play from the team. Anthony also missed some time with an injury. However, the future still looks bright for the Knicks. The team has Anthony under contract for several seasons, a top draft pick coming their way in the offseason and a lot of salary cap space with which to chase free agents this coming summer. Meanwhile, for the remainder of the 2014-15 campaign, the Knicks will get a look at the players on their roster and see who will stay in town beyond this season. Tim Hardaway Jr. should receive a good amount of run, as he is a promising youngster that the Knicks like. Langston Galloway has played very well since being called up from the D-League, and he could be a player that signs a new contract with the team in the offseason. The team has some great matchups still coming this season, and you can check them out at MSG and other arenas across the country.
