Are the New York Knicks cursed?

Despite having over $68 million in cap space, Madison Square Garden and the New York market, the New York Knicks failed in securing a top-tier free agent. This isn't the first time the Knicks swung and missed in recent years as they continue to be laughingstocks of the NBA. Many are starting to feel like the Knicks are cursed, while others think the team is one decision away from a solid team. What do you think? 🏀

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. 

They could've saved face by signing a big free agent, but the low-balled Kevin Durant and missed on everyone else. They had two max slots and couldn't convince anyone to come to one of the most famous arenas in the world. If this isn't supernatural intervention, nothing is.

The Knicks have dealt with bad signings, terrible leadership and underperforming teams for decades now. This team is cursed.

First of all, that trade was a great move for the team. They got rid of an injured player who had yet to prove he was truly a franchise player and, more importantly, cleared enough cap space for two max free agents this summer. The team also kept future star Kevin Knox and their first-round draft pick who turned out to the R.J. Barrett.

Knicks fans are an overdramatic bunch. They may not have gotten any stars, but they have a talented group of hard working players willing to grind it out for a coach that players love. They might actually be building a culture and a good young team.

This team isn't cursed.
