Are the New York Knicks cursed?
The Knicks traded away their best player for a player they should have drafted in the first place (Dennis Smith Jr.), Wesley Matthews and DeAndre Jordan. Also included in the trade was a player they grossly overpaid for who they traded away. There is a special kind of incompetence that isn't normal. The Knicks have dealt with bad signings, terrible leadership and underperforming teams for decades now. This team is cursed.
People are focusing too much on the players being exchanged to see that is actually a great move for the team. They get rid of an injured player who has yet to prove he's truly a franchise player and, more importantly, clear enough cap space for two max free agents this summer. The team also keeps future star Kevin Knox and keep their first-round draft pick who could be Zion Williamson.
Knicks fans are an overdramatic bunch. This team isn't cursed.
