Young man, there’s no need to look down. I said “young man pick yourself off the ground.”
The downside of this transition is that the Knicks lack players who are likely to make major improvements. In pursuit of a championship, the Knicks’ front office acquired a host of veterans on the tail ends of their careers — Jason Kidd, Kurt Thomas, Marcus Camby, Pablo Prigioni, and Rasheed Wallace — and
a third of their roster was born before the Village People released “Y.M.C.A.” That leaves the Knicks with few young players with room to grow. In fact, there really is only one: the 28-year-old rookie Chris Copeland.
