Noah missed many games throughout his career as a NBA player. Something has to change next season. Should the Knicks face the inevitable and let Noah go?

Wasn't it always a bad move for the Knicks to take on Noah?

Sports Illustrated wrote:

It’s important to note that Knicks president Phil Jackson isn’t taking a “flier” on Noah. No, he’s paying starter-plus money on a full four-year contract that will carry Noah past his 35th birthday. While the Rose/Noah pairing will generate some initial excitement, given their name recognition, this money would have been better spent on a younger center like Bismack Biyombo or Festus Ezeli who could work as a Porzingis complement for years.

Noah's contract might be guaranteed, but it's not looking too good for the center. His starting days are practically over. So, maybe it's time for the Knicks to have him to take that money, and bounce for the greater good of the team. Critics argue injury after injury is a sign that it's time for Noah to retire.

Sports fans call it the sad demise of Joakim Noah.

Knicks have to make the best of it. Whether or not Noah becomes a backup center, he'll most likely still be around. 

Back in July, USA Today reported:

The New York Knicks have agreed to a four-year, $72 million contract with Joakim Noah, a person with knowledge of his situation told USA TODAY Sports. The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because contracts can't be signed until July 7. All four years of the deal will be guaranteed.

Although it might feel like an unpopular opinion, some fans believe Noah can make a comeback. He has three years left in his contract, and yes—he's accident-prone. But he always returns. Maybe he can do that again, and finish out his last three years strong. Put that contract to good use. 

According to New York Post, coach Jeff Hornacek said: 

If he’s out the rest of the year, he can take all that time and summer to get himself back right. If that’s the case, he can’t come back this year, it’s nice long stretch of getting back healthy.

Knicks fans are fed up with Noah. Signing him was a bad move for the Knicks.

Maybe it's time you move on, Noah.
