You want to compare that to the previous 3 years in which we tanked on purpose? Really? The 2009 Knicks are your benchmark?
Actually, it was only 2 years prior that the Knicks tanked. They sucked big time before that.
This is year 2 and Melo and STAT and Tyson are signed for 3 more years. I didn't realize that winning a championship in the first 2 years was a prerequisite to not being an epic failure.
