The Knicks stink! They're on a five-game losing streak, they turn the ball over constantly, and play with no urgency until it's too late. Those two things are a product of lack of practice time and leadership. Amar'e and Melo need to come out with more energy. For all those screaming to make a trade or fire D'Antoni, look at the teams currently in the playoff picture: They're almost all squads whose cores have played two or more seasons together. This Knicks squad still needs more time. Better teams came out of that Texas two-step winless, don't panic just yet. This year's about who's hot come playoff time and last time we checked there's still a lot of basketball to be played. —Angel Diaz
