The New York Knicks look set for a fourth straight season resulting in a non-playoff finish, and the internal matters are only getting worse.
At 27-41, the Knicks currently sit six games behind the 8th placed and would-be playoff-bound Milwaukee Bucks. Among all the on court rumors, including Phil Jackson trying to chase Carmelo Anthony out of town, it’s a wonder they’ve only reached 27 wins.
With so many failures this season, somebody is bound to be thrown under the bus, and that man is usually the team’s head coach. Hornacek may only have himself to blame, though, as he continues to make head-scratching comments.
“The playoffs might not be in reach,” Hornacek said before Tuesday night’s match-up with the Indiana Pacers. What head coach says that going into a game that has massive repercussions on any chance of a playoff finish?
When the season soon comes to a close, ‘first year’ Knicks coach may be changed to ‘last season’s fired’ Knicks coach.
