This season, the New York Knicks have endured a tough time in the NBA. After making the playoffs last year, everyone expected the Knicks to leap to the next level. And they had some really good free agent signings as well. But things have not gone according to plan for the Knicks.

The Knicks are currently 12th in the East, and are 5 and a half games behind the 10th spot. The Knicks finished 6th last year, but they have been poor this year. They have been struck by injuries to Derrick Rose, and Julius Randle looks like a shell of his former self. Even the free-agent signings have not delivered consistently. And some massive news is coming from New York which will surely not please the fans.

How the Knicks have fared this season?

There were high hopes for the Knicks at the start, and they had hoped that would make a run for the title this season. But things have not gone according to plan. The Knicks seemed to have lost the defensive edge from last season. They were one of the best teams at the defensive end last year, and they seemed to have lost all of it. On top of it, they lost Rose to injury at the start, and Kemba Walker has failed to live up to the hype.

Along with that, the Knicks have blown a lot of big leads all season. They have lost to bad teams and lost winnable games. And the play of Julius Randle has been disappointing. His numbers are way down and his efficiency is down as well. Additionally, the coaching decisions have been poor, and the fans have asked for the coach to be fired. But with Tom set to stay, the fans will have to hope their fortunes turn around fast.
