That's way over-generalized and you know that. We limped into the playoffs last year -- we had the best record, but we had all but given up playing at a high level the day after CP3's birthday. Barely got through the Pelicans, and we all know what happened with Dallas.
On PAPER we've been one of the best franchise's in the history of the league. But we haven't won a title. When you do the same thing over and over and nothing comes of it, you have to change it up.
I know what happened, but I am saying I think our odds were better, our talent level compared to the competition was better.
In retrospect they shouldn't have taken the foot off the gas, they eased into the playoffs and lost their mojo.
I get the idea of "you gotta go for it at some point", I just don't think this was it. Maybe if we'd negotiated a better deal, but this feels like something the Knicks would do.
