It seemed like a repeat of the disappointing 2010 catastrophe, when the Knicks couldn’t get anywhere close to landing LeBron James or any of the other top stars of the year… This year was no different, as they cleared cap space for two maximum salary players, only to watch them all head somewhere else. Even Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving, who wanted to be in New York, decided they wanted to be Nets instead. However, there is one former Knicks legend who believes it’s going to be their year regardless, and that they just have to work with what they’ve got, without going after any of the big shots.
During the 1990s, John Starks rose to fame playing for the New York Knicks. It’s during his time with the team that he managed to land one of the most famous plays in NBA history… A play they simply called, “The Dunk.” In fact, during his time with the team, Starks would prove himself to be one of their most valuable players, winning several awards to add to his trophy cabinet. So, you could say he knows a thing or two about the team and the passion that has never really dwindled, despite disappointing results.
Starks is adamant that the Knicks are going to turn some heads this year, despite not landing any of the big players. We will just have to wait and see…
