You haven't been watching the Knicks have you? I doubt you have. They are all injured just like us. Chandler just got back? We had a 2-3 quality players too. They have a [expletive]ty amare and even worse bargnani. they are no different from the 04-06 lakers smush parker era etc lmfao....
You can't be serious.
From 04-06 the Lakers were basically a .500 team that went to the playoffs 2 out of 3 years. Lamar Odom were far and away their best player (other than Kobe) and in the season they didn't make the playoffs both he and Kobe missed a few games.
The Knicks have been injured of course. They've missed Chandler for a handfull of games as well as Raymond Felton, but that doesn't excuse a 10-21 record. They're also quite deep and have 11 guys who'd be rotation players on most other teams.
The difference between Melo and Kobe, other than the 04-06 Kobe were a lot better at scoring, is the defense and work ethic. 04-06 Kobe on this year's Knicks would have changed the whole culture of the team and he would have made sure that they played solid defense.
