It seems Kurt Rambis and possibly Phil are running things behind the scenes like they did in NY. We have a clueless owner in charge who does not know how to hire a decent FO. And a mediocre coach now taking the helm. The Knicks will never win a ring with Dolan, and I hate to say it but the Lakers will never win a ring with Jeanie in charge of it all. Tough times ahead. Will it be 30-40 years before we sniff at a ring like the Knicks?

Well, the Knicks-East might be getting KD and Kyrie, in which case is this really such a bad moniker?

Before we continue, maybe we give this FO mess a chance
to straighten out or flame out.

Now we have a coach, let's see what else happens once FA
begins...

If Phil or Rambis were still there you think they'd have a shot at KD and Kyrie?

I'm a fan of letting people work before judging them. We still have a very formidable team with Lebron, BI and Lonzo. It's just that we must have had the worst coach in Luke Walton. I'm sure Vogel will be better than Walton so give him some time to prove himself. The thing about this offseason is if we struck out on all the top free agents, we always have the options of punting our capspace for AD next year.

I've had my share of pessimistic thoughts lately but am choosing to be optimistic and/or keeping my mouth shut for now, until we see the Draft/FA results this summer.

I also hold out hope that the current Lakers leadership are waiting for the playoffs to be over with certain teams before finishing a POBO search/hire.

The Knicks have a much brighter future than us. I honestly have no idea what our plan is or what direction we are heading in.

It is clearly not a youth movement with Lebron....

The problem is that winning is down on the list of what our CEO values. Self preservation is at the top.

Yeah, so the OP believes we're getting KD and Kyrie this offseason? If so, that would be a nice haul.

Off the top of your head, name who runs the Knicks now?

Well there's Dolan and he's still Dolan. Jeanie > Dolan or Dolan > Jeanie?

The Lakers have lost their luster. Scuttlebutt is Phil Jackson, Kurt and Linda Rambis are influencing decisions, calling the shots. Our FO is a joke.

I think New York may be a city on the rise. According to SAS Dolan is willing to stop meddling and give his FO a free hand. If that's true I think KD, Kyrie and maybe Kawhi may end up in NY. If you've ever been to NY you know it's a city with ambiance and business opportunities unbelievable.

The passing of Dr Buss was the beginning of the end for a franchise once at the top of the pecking order. I think it's time for the Buss's to sell.

The Knicks are in the running for Zion. If they get the number 1 pick and chose Zion it's just about a no brainer they'll get Kyrie and KD.

As long as we continue to draft well I’ll settle for what comes. I will always believe that’s the most important part of this game.

This is the same situation the Knicks were in when Phil was in charge, except he couldn't trade Carmelo since he had a no-trade clause and LeBron doesn't have a no-trade clause this time now. LeBron & Klutch HATES Phil, and Rambis is Phil's lapdog essentially. Put it this way, the Knicks are in the position they are in now with 2 max slots to sign Kevin Durant once James Dolan finally fired both Phil & Rambis. So, yes the decision makers Jeanie has entrusted are the ones that James Dolan fired due to how awful they were.

Is that your burner account, Jeanie Buss? We know how you like to throw "fake news" around.
