LeBron James Thinks Knicks Fans Need to Be More Patient

Knicks fans want their team to be good now. Check that. Not now, but right now. They don't want to have to wait a week or a month or—heaven forbid!—a full season to let Carmelo Anthony, Amar'e Stoudemire, and Tyson Chandler build the chemistry between them. They want to win a title this year and that means playing better ASAP. However, according to LeBron James—who seems to have an opinion on everything these days—Knicks fans need to be a little more patient with their squad. After all, Rome wasn't built in a day. And neither are championship-caliber NBA teams.

"It takes time," he said when asked about the Knicks, who will play the Heat in Miami tonight sans 'Melo and his injured ankle and wrist. "It's never going to work right overnight, and we [the Heat] were the prime example of that. It took us time. We were 9-8 at one point, but it took us even longer after that to become a good team, to know each other, to learn each other, what works for each other, what don't work. I think they're going through the same thing right now, but people want results now. That's just the league and the world we live in."

And, not for nothing, Bron, that's especially true in the Big Apple. But, hey: At least they've got the Giants right now, right?
