The New York Knicks are on a 4-game winning streak and will attempt to extend it to 5 against the Bobcats tonight. After a horrid November, the Knicks are 5-1 in the month of December and seem to be righting the ship.
As we all know, New York is a possible destination for LeBron James, whose contract will be ending with Cleveland in July 2010. So do the Knicks want their success to continue and possibly go to the playoffs, or would they rather lose, dump players and go after “King James”?
“We were definitely in a deep hole, and now we’ve put ourselves back in the opportunity go get into the playoffs, which is our goal,” said guard Chris Duhon, “We’re definitely back in it. We just have to keep going.”
A positive approach is all a team can ask for from its point guard, but Chris Duhon, even though he’s a decent player, along with at least 5 other current Knicks will be in different uniforms come July. Donnie Walsh and Mike D’Antoni won’t allow a sliver of success to ruin their plans for the future.
Chris Bosh, D-Wade and Amare Stoudemire are all great players, but for New York it’s Lebron or bust.
